7 Clever Tips to Keep in Mind When Building Your Wedding Registry



We’ve talked quite a bit on here about about how to make the most of your wedding registry, and what it boils down to is the idea that your wish list should be filled with the items that make the most sense for your lifestyle. Traditional registries (where blenders and fine china were standard) are a thing of the past—now it’s all about choosing gifts that you’ll get the most use out of, even if that means cash or contributions to your honeymoon.

For soon-to-be newlyweds who are building a new home together, classic registry items like dinnerware and serving platters may be essential, and it’s important to approach those purchases with a similar mindset: Before adding something to your registry, imagine how it’ll fit into your home and your entertaining style. For example, if you’re not big on hosting dinner parties, you’ll get more use out of casual, everyday place settings than more formal ones.

To help you through the process, take note of these seven expert tips which break down the key things to keep in mind when planning your registry.
