Who doesn’t love running around their favorite department store registering for the latest and greatest in home goods or luxury linens? Traditional gift registries are a great way to get a jump start on all the essentials you need to set up your new life as a couple. However, many couples now choose to live together before they tie the knot and as a result, they may already have all the basics and then some. We have come up with 3 unique wedding registry ideas that will help you step outside the “gift box.”
Honeymoon registries are always a good idea because they allow your guests to contribute to your honeymoon. Most of the honeymoon registry sites even go as far as offering your guests options to buy excursions or hotel packages that will enhance your trip. Other specifics such as airfare and transportation can also be included in the fund.
The easiest way to make sure everyone is on board with your idea is to get the word out through friends and family. Also, be sure to include a link to the fund when you send out your invitations so that there is no confusion.
Check out Honeyfund.com for details on this option.
Weddings are a celebration of love and no celebration is complete without giving some of that love back to the community. Many couples are opting to donate funds directly to a charity of their choice. Sometimes we find ourselves receiving gifts we may not necessarily need. A charitable donation can make everyone feel like they are helping a good cause in honor of your special day. When in doubt, pay it forward!
Gift Card Registry
Maybe you want to hang on to some gift cards for a rainy day or you want to save up for a bigger purchase? Gift card registries might be the answer for you. With this option, you have the ability to set specific amounts, choose the stores you like and give guests the option to mail it directly to you. This is also a great option for many out of town guests who will not be able to attend but would still like to give a gift.
CardAvenue.com is the place to go for gift card registries.
