Ready, Set, Register: Don't End Up With a Kitchen Full of Unicorn-Shaped Gadgets!

Updated: Apr 7, 2023

Getting married is a joyous occasion, but with it comes the responsibility of figuring out what gifts to register for. The process of selecting gifts can be overwhelming, but with a little guidance, you can easily create a registry that suits your tastes and needs. Here are some tips on how to register for gifts for your wedding day:

  1. Start early: Ideally, you should start your registry process as soon as possible. This will give you enough time to explore different options, compare prices, and make adjustments before the big day.

  2. Create a list: Begin by creating a list of items you would like to register for. Think about your current needs as well as your future plans. Consider your lifestyle, your hobbies, and your upcoming travels. This will help you narrow down your options and focus on the items that matter most to you.

  3. Choose a store: Once you have a list of items, select a store that matches your preferences. Many department stores offer registry services, as do online retailers like Amazon, Zola, and The Knot. Do your research to find a store that carries the products you want and offers a user-friendly registry process.

  4. Register for a range of prices: Be sure to include items at different price points so that your guests have a variety of options to choose from. This will also help ensure that you receive gifts that fit within your guests' budgets.

  5. Consider experiences: In addition to traditional items like kitchenware and home décor, consider registering for experiences like a honeymoon fund or a cooking class. This will allow your guests to contribute to your overall wedding experience rather than just buying a physical gift.

  6. Keep track of your registry: Keep track of the items you've registered for, the quantities you need, and the items that have been purchased. This will help you keep your registry up-to-date and avoid receiving duplicate gifts.

  7. Be grateful: Finally, remember to express your gratitude to your guests for their generosity. Send thank you notes promptly and make sure to acknowledge the specific gift you received.

Creating a wedding registry can be a fun and exciting part of the wedding planning process. With a little bit of organization and planning, you can create a registry that reflects your style and helps you start your new life together on the right foot.
