Great Wedding Gifts to Add to Your Registry

Updated on January 29, 2013

The Benefits of A Wedding Registry

Setting up a gift registry helps you and your guests determine exactly what you need to start your new life with your significant other. The last thing people want is to receive is a bunch of stuff that they really don't need, or want , as well as deal with the hassles of trying to return or get rid of the presents they received. A gift registry keeps you organized and plan your needs and wants together . When you set up a wedding gift registry at places like a department store, you are usually assigned to a consultant who will review your profile, make suggestions for your requirements, and follow through from pre-wedding and post wedding needs. A consultant will assist you in adding gifts to your registry for your wedding shower, wedding day, and possibly even your baby shower. :-)
Some registries offer incentives such as discounts on gift items to be purchased or completed after the wedding. The good thing about registries, especially with larger department stores, is that your friend or relative in another city, province, or state can access your registry online or at the department store kiosk and find exactly what you need and what has already been purchased for you. This takes alot of stress of your wedding guests as well as yourself so you do not receive duplicated gift orders.

Starting Your Wedding Registry

Setting up your Profile

Starting a wedding registry requires a bit of planning and should start from the time of your engagement. You will need some time to figure out what you need and to give your wedding guests enough time to find your registered items. You and your partner might be starting out in a new home and will need things such as dinnerware, flatware, stemware, kitchen appliances, furniture appliances, bath and bed linens, home furnishings, etc. etc. You never realize how much you need to fill your home until you actually plan it out.

Questions you might be asked when setting up your registry are:

1. Are you moving into a new home or adding to an existing?

2. What is your style? ie-Contemporary, Country, Modern, Casual or Traditional

3. What type of residence are moving into? Apartment, condo, or House.

4. What rooms do you have in your residence? Living room, Dining Room, Sitting Room, Kitchen, Basement, etc.

5. How many bathrooms or bedrooms do you have?

6. What major appliances do you require?

7. What is your color scheme for each room?

8. Will you be entertaining guests?

9. Do you enjoy cooking?

10. Are you planning a honeymoon?

11. Do you need luggage?
