When you’ve recently gotten engaged, there are a million things to consider and plan before your big day. On top of everything else, you and your partner are given the task to create a wedding registry so that your friends and family can shower you with gifts and items necessary to start your new life together. Creating a wedding registry can be a fun but daunting task - How do you know what to add? Is it okay to register for expensive items? How many forks and towels does one newlywed couple truly need? The Sutherland wedding venue Wake Forest understands all of the planning that goes into a wedding, so we wanted to share some tips to consider when creating your wedding registry to avoid the extra stress that may come with it:

Register As Soon As You Get Engaged


There is no need to wait until your first bridal shower or the month before your wedding to start your registry. A wedding registry is something you can work on right away that is one of the more fun planning tasks for both you and your partner. Registering early gives your guests ample time to select a gift, and it allows you to plan ahead and ensure your registry only contains items you truly want instead of feeling thrown together last minute. Just be sure to update your registry regularly in case things go out of stock or you already receive an item listed.


Register For Items With A Variety Of Price Points

You may be wondering if you can register for top-dollar items, and the answer is yes! But you should also register for more affordable options as well to make sure your gift registry has a range of price points to choose from. While one guest might spend $200 on that specific set of bed sheets you have been eyeing, another guest may want to make you a basket of several smaller items, like of the kitchen utensils you have requested. Also, some guests, like your college friends, may opt to band together and give you a large gift as a group.


Keep Different Registries In One Place

As mentioned above, it’s a great idea to keep a pretty extensive registry so your guests will have lots to choose from, but there is no need to limit yourself to just one or two stores when it comes time to register for wedding gifts. The Sutherland wedding venue Wake Forest suggests keeping a universal gift registry using an online registry, like The Knot or Wedding Wire, where items can be linked from essentially any store with a website! You can include the link to your registry on your shower invitations and on your wedding website so that it is convenient and easy to access, update, and track what has been purchased.
