Wedding Registry Trends

  • There are many different gift registries to choose from such as charities, honeymoons, new homes, and specialized stores.

  • If you choose to give to a charity it's best to avoid political or controversial causes. Examples would be Stem Cell Research, Same-Sex Marriage, or Pro Choice to name a few.

  • Have your family and your bridal party inform your guests of your intentions by word of mouth.

  • If asked directly then answer directly. No sense in beating around the bush. Let your guests know exactly what you would like.

  • It is the guest's prerogative to choose what to give. So don't strong arm them into using your registry. Keep in mind your registry is not a requirement it is a suggestion for gifts.

  • Some people do not like to give money as a gift. So still set a traditional registry, even if contains only a few items.
