Wedding registries are a great way to help guests pick out items knowing that you’ll appreciate them and prevent you from getting 10 of the same item. They take the guesswork out of shopping for gifts and can even offer certain discounts. To get the most out of your registry, there are a few things to keep in mind and some research you should do.
Register at more than one store
By registering at several stores, you allow your guests more to choose from and more ways to get you a personal gift. You can also hope to be more surprised by your wedding gifts and have more unique pieces that if the selection was restricted to one store.
Select items with a wide range of price points
While you don’t want to ask every guest at your wedding to shell out some major money for your registry, there are certain family members that are going to want to do that. Including gifts in your registry of varying price points allows your guests more freedom and comfort. After all, you don’t want to embarrass your guests by asking them to get a gift they can’t afford.
Set it up early
Don’t wait until the last minute to get your registry set up, as that will leave your guests scrambling at the last minute to find presents! Doing your research early on and selecting your registry gives your guests a comfortable amount of time to find the right gifts.
