Wedding Registry Trends

For some, gift registry is the most fun thing about planning a wedding. You get to shop around your favorite stores and pick out things you want without dropping a dime! But if combing through stacks of fine china and sheet sets isn’t your cup of tea, here is a list of more unique wedding registry ideas that might be more fitting for you! Wedding registry is just one step in your planning process! Make sure you check out Bridal Party Tees for bachelorette party tees, before the wedding designs, honeymoon tees and accessories!

Charity Registries: Yes, your wedding day is all about you and your new spouse, but why not share the spotlight with your favorite charity? Set up a charitable gift registry with an organization like the “I Do Foundation” which will help guide guests through the process of donating to your charity of choice.

Game time: Add your favorite board games or video games to your registry! Having a few of the classics like Monopoly and Twister will make your new place feel like home, and provide tons of fun for game nights later on! You might not be able to justify buying yourself a Wii, but your guests will have no problem making the splurge for you!

Activities: Register for a little post-wedding fun by adding things like private guitar lessons, a private wine tour for two, dance lessons, cooking classes or a fun local activity or event.

Bar basics: If you’re a couple that likes to host, indulge in an at-home mini bar as part of your register! Pick out your favorite martini glasses, and essentials like corkscrews, strainers, and juice squeezers.

Honeymoon Registry: Guests can help the newlyweds make their dream honeymoon come true by contributing to a honeymoon registry that can range from an investment in the couple’s dream to backpack around Europe to a week of beachside activities at a luxurious resort!

Home Sweet Home: Why register for a bunch of “stuff” for your dream home when you can actually have your guests contribute money that will go towards the down payment on a new home! It’s one of the most valuable investments family members and friends can make in a new couple’s life.

Plan an Adventure: If you are an energetic, adventuresome couple tandem skydiving is an exciting option to have on your registry! If you want to do something adventurous but have a fear of heights, a guided canoe or kayaking tour could be a good substitute.
