Your wedding registry is a good chance to get practical and stock up on everything you think you will need for your home both short term and long term. For most brides this is the chance to get everything you need for your home in one hit. If you decide that you do not want to do a registry, or if you already have most of your household items, make sure your guests know what you would like to receive as a gift. Some alternatives to registries include money, gift cards, gifts for charities, and money towards a memorable honeymoon destination idea.
Registering for gifts takes the guesswork out of gift-shopping for your guests, and ensures that you’ll begin your married life with all the basic necessities. Make sure you think about all the things you’ll likely need in your place.
