The moment you get engaged, friends, family and well wishers will
like to send their congratulatory messages and gifts. To make this
easier for both of them, the newly engaged come together to have a
list of items put together for their well wishers. What's not to
be excited in this part of Wedding planning knowing fully well
you'er on the part of making your wedding experience easier for
you and your guests.
Wedding registry otherwise known as bridal registry is a website that has a list of stores where newly engaged go ahead to curate a list of items for their guests. This inturn makes gifting easier for boy parties.
HOW SOON SHOULD YOU REGISTER?
People sometimes say gifting should be the gifter's prerogative
and it sometimes naturally feels awkward to ask for presents.
However, to avoid getting gift duplicates, don't you think it's
important to have a wedding registry as soon as possible?
Once you're engaged, friends and well wishers will like to start sending their congratulatory messages and presents, so it's important to create your wishlist three to four months before your wedding. Your loved ones may buy you items you already have if you don't let them know what you need beforehand. Remember, guests appreciate hosts who give them enough notice to prepare for their event and make sure it aligns with their schedule.
SHOULD YOU ASK FOR FUND/CASH RATHER THAN GIFT ITEMS?
At Joyribbons, we give the intended couple the choice of either
going with their Goff items or deciding to get their gifts in
Furthermore, intending couples can decide to include funds for experience such as honeymoon, first home, vacation and flight ticket. Your guests want nothing more than to shower you with gifts.
However, you may decide to engage in group gifting if you feel like the item or experience is quite expensive. This simple meal, two or more of your guests can decide to buy a particular item of higher price or experience for you. Again, you should also understand the capability of your guests. Yet, you don't underestimate what they can do.
HOW DO I REGISTER FOR WEDDING GIFTS?
It is always exciting and fun to plan one's wedding but more fun
when choosing gift items for your registry. Why is this so?
Knowing fully well that you are preventing your guest from the
hassle and racking their brains on what gift they can give you and
at the same time avoid receiving items you already have as gifts.
Remember this, it's not uncommon for intending couples to decide against creating a wedding wish list out of a sense of excess or guilt. However, nobody is forcing anyone to buy something off the couple's registry. What is the essence of sending or gifting if not for the receiver to actually enjoy the gift item?
So at this point make sure to sit with your partner and calculate what you did like to put out there for your guest and make sure to have fun while at it.
SHOULD I PAY ATTENTION TO THE COST OF ITEMS?
In this case, it's always important to give guests a variety of
options and make sure they feel comfortable with it. Every guest
has a particular amount of money they want to spend for your gift
in mind. So make sure to have a mix of items ranging from a lower
price to a higher price. Those who want to gift you might buy
multiple items just to reach their goal.
Don't be overly conscious when adding items of higher prices to your wedding registry. Of course there are people who will like to spend more. Don't forget there is nothing inappropriate to register and you both agree.
