Get The Most Out Of Your Registry
A Quick Guide To Creating The Perfect Registry
Creating a registry is one of the most exciting aspects of celebrating a joyous occasion. Classically regarded as a formality for wedded bliss, registries are now used for baby showers, college graduations, housewarmings, and other celebratory milestones.
Registries offer a curated list of dinnerware and décor that establish a foundation of everyday essentials for your home, eliminating the stress for your loved ones of finding the perfect gift. But more than that, they are a collaboration with your partner or loved ones, reflecting what in life is meaningful to you.
Whether you’re recently engaged, expecting, or moving to a new home, here are our Registry Specialist’s tips for getting the most out of your registry:
Register 6-8 months before your big day. After all, there is a lot to consider – where to register, what to register for, and more – and this can take time. There are no ‘rules’ about sharing your registry with friends and family, but it’s ideal to do so before your save the date is mailed.
Think thoroughly. There is no limit to how many items are on your registry. It can be as grand or as tailored as you like, so be thoughtful about adding all the items you need to support your lifestyle, favorite holidays, and traditions. In addition to everyday essentials, pick out an array of simple gift and decor items you love in a range of price points so that your guests have a nice assortment of items that suit any budget.
Our best advice? Print out and take our lifestyle quiz to help guide your choices. We recommend registering for 8-12 place settings, but of course, this depends on your needs, and an often-overlooked consideration: storage space!
Get the most out of your experience by registering somewhere that offers great customer service and guidance from a dedicated registry specialist. They will work with you one-on-one to take the guesswork out of the registry process, help your loved ones with purchasing, and facilitate registry fulfillment after your wedding day.
