How Do You Prepare Your Wedding Gifts Registry?

Jan 20, 2008
Wedding gifts registering is followed as a custom in western weddings. It is simply registering the wedding gifts at a store or shop near you. It is a way to tell your guests implicitly about what you like to receive as wedding gifts. Who would not want their gifts to be cherished and used by the recipients after all?

Wedding gifts registry is also an idea to narrow down to one or two stores for purchase of wedding gifts, from their available list of items and then making your guests aware of the list. Practically, it avoids duplication to the max.

It's advisable to do wedding gifts registry at least for immediately needed items as soon as you pronounce the date of your wedding. See that you register them at maximum one or two stores near you.

However, if you have plans for an engagement dinner or an engagement shower it is advisable to register for the gifts well in advance. Also you need not go and register all of the gifts at one shot. Take time to think and decide and you may go twice or thrice to add/edit the gifts in the registry.

In US, Canada and UK there are many stores with the option of wedding gifts registry. You may opt for one or two stores close to your place and also the store that offers wide range of gift ideas to your wedding guests. Do not add too many stores and it might annoy your guests. Make sure you know and read the policies of the stores where you wanted to register. Some of them have exchange packages and some special prices for some items. Beware of all of them.

The date of registering is also important because if you register with some time for your wedding, it gives some time for your guests to pool up finances for buying the registered gift. They even get some time to buy gifts for pre-wedding formalities including rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, etc.

Add as many as you like to the list of wedding gifts registry because it only adds to the choice for your wedding guests. If not one they can go for another gift you wanted so there need not be a limit for registering as well as receiving gifts on your wedding! You may register all essential to formal ones; home appliances to bags, luggage items, bed linen, other furnishings, furniture, and informal show pieces, etc. Also remember not to register very costly gifts (If you cannot afford to gift costly gifts you have no right to ask for them either, right?)

Finally, never inform your wedding guests formally of the wedding gifts registry that you have made. It's better they come to know about it by word-of-mouth publicity through your very close circle of friends. And after your wedding as you un ravel the wrapped gifts, you are glad that all you ever wanted to buy as soon as you get married is there in front of your eyes and you can only indulge in enjoying you're your partner rather than planning.
