Planning Tip Tuesday: The Perfect Gift Registry

On this Planning Tip Tuesday, we are talking all things registry. Registering for your wedding gifts can be stressful and confusing, but we are here to help! Here are a few tips for setting up your gift registry.

Pick Two to Three Retailers: This tip makes everyone's life easier. Picking a minimal amount of retailers to register with is not only convenient for your guests, but it helps makes picking up all your gifts a breeze while also giving variety. Not sure which retailer is right for you? Try to pick a store like Bed Bath & Beyond or Target that has everything you could possibly need.

Think About PriceRange:  As newlyweds, it can be easy to want to splurge on everything to fill your new home. But realistically, you probably don't need that $300 picture frame. So when you're picking out items for your registry, think about the items that are worth asking people to buy for you, like this Le Creuset Cookware!

Skip the Crystal: Crystal has been a staple in wedding gift registries for years, but in the twenty-first century it is now becoming outdated. Instead of having guests purchase those champagne flutes that are going to sit in your cabinet forever, opt for something a little more fun and modern like this glassware set!

Register Together: Not only is it fun to shop for gifts you will both enjoy, it will also help the two of you get the most use of out these gifts in the future! Picking them out together ensures that you agree on which items have a place in your home and which ones you might not use as much. 

Don't Forget the Thank You: Post wedding, sending a thank you note is a necessity for anyone who gave a gift. Being a gracious host is just as important as your guests picking out a great gift from your wonderful registry, so don't forget to show your appreciation!
