What to add to your wedding registry

Hey there! Looking for What to add to your wedding registry? I gotchu! Here I go over at a registry is, where you can register, and some ideas!

What is a wedding registry?

Wikipedia defines it as “A bridal registry or wedding registry is a service provided by a website or retail store that assists engaged couples in the communication of gift preferences to wedding guests.”

How many registries should you have?

People have anywhere from 1-3 different registries! This can give you more control on what items you want to ask for. Another option is to register for gift cards to a specific store, i.e. Lowe’s, or a honeymoon fund.

Places you can register

There are so many places you can register, but here are a few of my favorite! (I got Crate & Barrel plates/bowls from mine and they are still in amazing shape! I DONT reccomend plastic cups rom crate and barrel, those did not hold up)
