Bridal Registry Tips That Will Work For You


Bridal registry is like shopping made more fun – you get to choose the items and have the guests purchase them as gifts for you. Although you may not be able to complete your line-up, what’s good is that you have exactly the items that you want and need, and your guests will not have a difficult time finding a gift for you. Also, they will instantly know that you will appreciate their gift because it is on your wish list.

As with all aspects in a wedding, not all bridal registries are the same. If you like, you can also segment your bridal registry into gifts that are practical that will be useful in your new life as a couple and gifts that would just be fun to have. Here are some tips to make the most out of your bridal registry.

– Promos, Discounts Freebies – If you are creating your bridal registry at a big retailer, ask them if they have offers discounts on some of the items if someone buys them from the registry. Some stores offer these kinds of programs and it is a lot better than just the traditional bridal registry.

– Choose at least two to three stores – Do not just settle on one store that you are familiar with. Create other bridal registries for other stores that will be located in different areas and for different items. Make sure that if you have multiple bridal or wedding registries that you do not duplicate items from one registry to another. That way your guests will not get you duplicates of the same item. Choose stores that specialize in the items that you are interested in. A store known for kitchen appliance is where you can best enlist your kitchen bridal registry items. Specialty stores will give you and your guests a lot of options.

– Have a sales person or DIY – Some stores will give you a handheld scanner so that you can choose items by yourself, but it is still a good idea to talk to a sales person to get suggestions and other details. Find out about online purchases or gift wrapping services so you know what your guests will have to go through when they purchase bridal registry items from their store – whether it will be tedious or really easy.

– Check the price range – be a little modest on the price range that you will have. Choose items that are within reach of the guests who will be attending. It would be a little unreasonable to expect them to buy hundred or thousand worth of items especially if it is beyond their budget. As much as you would want to receive these items, you also need to consider your guests. With proper consideration of your guests’ budget, it will be a win-win situation for everybody. Consider also getting various items in different price ranges so that you guests can choose a price they are comfortable with.

– Make it fun! – Have the two of you choose items. In your wedding plans, make sure that both of you has a say when it comes to all the important aspects of planning the wedding, including scheduling for the bridal registry items.
