The sooner the better
With so many items on your to-do list you want to stay as organized and on schedule as possible. You could even use a timeline or checklist to help you out! This means that before you can finalize and send out your invitations or complete your wedding website, you need to have your registry started. Depending on how much you’re registering for and how many places you’re going to register, this can take a little bit of time. Get started by making a base list of what you’d like to add and then go from there.
Keep your guests in mind
Your wedding registry is just as much a tool for your guests as it is for you. Yes, you are adding the items you want onto it, but it is your guests who will find it most useful. When you are deciding what items to add, think about your guests and ask yourself if the item is something they would be comfortable buying for your wedding. Don’t be afraid to add larger and more expensive items though, as guests may group together to purchase them. Still, it is important to ask yourself any questions your guests may have when it comes to your registry.
Make it a couple thing
While it is widely believed that the bride is the overall star of the wedding, that shouldn’t be the case. Your wedding is just as big of a day for the groom and thus planning it should be an equal venture. When it comes to creating your registry, spend the day going to the stores you want to register at in person to see what they have to offer and discuss which options will be best for your future home and life together.
