On The Seventh Day of Christmas 2011

The months leading up to your wedding you and your hubby to be will spend quite a bit of money getting things in order for your special day...therefore, let's have a little fun! 

On the seventh day of Christmas my wedding planner gave to me..."A Wedding Registry"

This is that fun time when you can walk into your favorite stores and begin your wish list without worrying about your bank account.  More than china, flatware and glassware there are some non-traditional items you should consider.  For instance, some couples add luggage, furniture and event their honeymoon... it IS a wish list right? (ha)

A gift registry is a great guide for your guests, cuts down on receiving two irons and an ideal way to keep track of who gave what.  One rule of caution - do not overwhelm your guests by choosing a multitude of stores or a speciality shop that is only in your town. Stick to department or chain stores (from various price points) you love and leave it at that...

Lastly, If you’re really dont want gifts, you can always ask guests to make a charitable donation in your name to a favorite cause. Consider registering for gift certificates, or ask your parents and bridal party to spread the word that you’d prefer cash. it’s important to register for at least a few gifts so that guests who want to give a traditional present have the option.

NOTE:  proper etiquette dictates that you should never include registry information on your wedding invitation or in your invitation suite. Rely on family members and your bridal party to spread the word.  It is acceptable to put your registry information on your wedding website...  It’s also inappropriate to request monetary gifts on your invite....Fun times ahead!
