Some couples can’t wait to create a wedding registry. Others become utterly stumped by the thought. You’re setting up your new home together, and sharing your style with guests who want to shower you with love. It’s no wonder setting up a wedding registry can be both thrilling and overwhelming. But where do you register? And what things do you put on a wedding registry? Where do you even begin?
Not sure how to create a wedding registry? We’ve got you covered.
First Things First: How Does a Wedding Registry Work, Exactly?
Think of your registry as a wedding gift list. You and your intended choose a store (or stores!) and a bunch of goodies you’d love to fill your newlywed home with. That registry (online and in-person) will be where guests purchase gifts for your engagement party, shower, and the big day. But creating a wedding registry isn’t always about material gifts—some couples opt for honeymoon registries (guests buy you an experience or a night at your hotel, for example), cash funds, or some combination thereof.
