Wedding Registry Tips
A wedding registry is a once in a lifetime chance to ask for all the items you would ever want for your home.
Your registry should be a mix of must-have home essentials, things you’ve always wanted and upgrades on existing things that are looking a bit tired! When starting your registry, keep the following in mind to ensure you create your perfect list.
BUILD IT TOGETHER
Adding gifts to your registry is fun which is why we suggest sitting with your partner and registering together. We have a wonderful selection of gifts for both ladies and gents.
CONSIDER YOUR LIFESTYLE
Do you like traveling? Are you moving into a new home? Are you an avid cook that loves to spend a lot of time in the kitchen? Do you appreciate wine? These are all elements that can guide your decision.
ADD ENOUGH GIFTS AT ALL PRICE POINTS
Make sure you add enough gifts to your registry to avoid guests buying gifts elsewhere. There is nothing worse than being the last person on the registry and all that is left is a cheese grater! Having items in a range of prices ensures that everyone can find a gift they can afford. More expensive items can become the perfect group gift.
THINK BEYOND TODAY
You may not be entertaining the whole family for Christmas this year but you probably will in the years to come. It’s important to add both the basics (everyday dishes, bed linens) as well as items you may need in the future (formal china and crystal for 12, serving pieces). It is best to get these items now to start building a home for the future.
QUALITY IS IMPORTANT
Select items for your table (dinner services, crystal, flatware) and kitchen (pots and pans, appliances), which will last years.
MAKE IT SPECIAL
Add items that you would not necessarily buy for yourself. A potato peeler is not a gift that you will treasure for years to come!
Make it easy for your guests by giving them many gift options on one list rather than giving them a few options on many lists.
TELL YOUR GUESTS ABOUT IT
Your consultant will provide you with complimentary Bespoke notification cards to pop in with your invitations and inform your guests of your registry. These are also available electronically for e-invites with the direct link to your registry included.
Remember your consultant is here to help you throughout and follow up with a call after you create your account to chat through the process and answer any questions you have.
