Wedding Registry Tips Skip to main content

One of the most fun things you can do as part of your wedding festivities is add items to your wedding registry. Whether you hit up the store in person or add the items online, it’s always a fun experience. Before you begin your registry, take stock of the items you already own. If you do not already live together, you can use your registry as an opportunity to envision how you would like to decorate your home.

Don’t build your registry alone.

Both you and your future wedded spouse should provide input into the registry. You should pick out items together as well as both choose items individually that you would like to own.

Include items of varying prices.

Loved ones that will be buying you gifts will have different budgets. This will make your wedding guests feel more comfortable as they will find items that they can afford. You can include some pricier items for those that want to splurge.

Start it early.

As soon as people find out that you are newly engaged, they will ask to see your registry. Make sure you start your registry early, even if you add only a few items to begin with. The great thing is that you can continue to add as time goes on, right up until the big event.

Register at multiple stores.

Choose a couple of stores that can be accessed both online and in person. Not everyone that attends your events will shop online, so choose stores such as Macys, Target, Lord & Taylor, JCPenney, and others that are easy to shop at and are nationally known.

Check the return policy.

If you receive an item from your registry that you might not be in love with and may want to return it, make sure you become familiar with the store’s return policy on items. Some stores have a small window of time where they will accept returns, so avoid any stress by familiarizing yourself with each store’s policy.
