Five Tips for Building a Wedding Registry

Planning a registry is arguably one of the most exciting parts of getting married. Even if you have lived with your partner for a while before tieing the knot, planning your registry gives you a chance to start fresh with items you can enjoy together as a married couple. Read on for our five tips for building a wedding registry that will help make the process smooth and efficient.

Building a Wedding Registry

  1. Mix high and low price point items – When building a registry, it’s okay to ask for expensive pieces as well as some lower-end price point items. You may have guests who want to gift you some higher-end pieces you’ll treasure for a lifetime, while other guests will appreciate more budget-friendly options.
  2. Think about the future – If you entertain frequently, then you’ll want pieces that are reflective of this in your registry. Or, if you’re looking for items you can pass down from generation to generation, you’ll want to add that in there as well. You can also consider the future in a different way here: if you’re planning on upgrading from a queen to a king bed, add the right size bedding to your registry. Or, if you’re hosting Christmas dinner for the first time, serving ware may be on your registry too.
  3. Don’t wait too long to register – This should be one of the first things you do in the planning process, especially if you have a short window between your engagement and your wedding date. Your guests who are planners will appreciate having a wedding registry early on! Not to mention,
  4. Choose items you both love – One of the five tips for building a wedding registry is that you should choose items you both want. One person should not dominate the whole registry. Plus, it’s important together so that you can understand each others’ tastes and compromise on certain items if necessary.
  5. Remember – there are no rules! – Building a registry should have items you and your spouse feel are important and necessary, not items that a family member thinks you should have. You want items that will last, but sometimes a silver seven-piece place setting is not necessary. You also don’t necessarily need to register for just kitchenware. Add decor, cookbooks, electronics – anything you think will help last through your lives together.
