When you create your registry, you are picking the items that will help you and your hubby start your new life together- no more college cups and plates or bedding! Building your registry can be an overwhelming task, especially in light of all the wedding planning, but with a few simple tips, you can build the perfect registry to meet your needs, totally hassle free! Start off by linking your registry to your own customizable wedding website. While it not only makes gift giving easy and quick for your guests, it is also the perfect place to add your engagement photos, personalizing your registry and reminding guests of the sweet couple that they are buying for. Next, stick to the essentials. With the power of the registry clicker in your hands, the ability to scan everything and anything is quite literally at your fingertips. Go in to your stores with a list of absolute must have’s, and then add your wishes later on. It is so important to get what you truly need so that you and your hubby can start your new life together at home with all the right tools. Lastly is keep track and say “thanks!" Writing a handful of thank you notes all at once can be tiring, but if you write thank you notes as you receive the gifts, it makes the process ten times easier, and it ensures that no gift goes unseen. Some of our favorite spots are Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, and Sur La Table. Building your registry can be tons of fun, and a great way for you and your future husband to get excited about the next phase in your lives, so build away!
