You’re engaged! With that brings the joy of creating a gift registry with your fiancé. The best part is you can start building your registry right when you get engaged! It’s always great to be ahead of the game, so guests will already have gift options to choose from for your engagement party, wedding shower, and your wedding gift! Create lists of things you and your fiancé would use everyday, like bedding, sheets, cooking utensils and also items for special occasions like dinner parties or holidays: special glassware, chargers, or napkin rings.
Don’t just shoot for one store, get broad on stores you choose like William-Sonoma, Bed Bath & Beyond, Crate and Barrel, Target, etc. There are so many options to pick from! The more the better, there is no such thing as over registering. You’re doing yourself and your guests a favor by having lots of options to choose from. And most important of all, remember to send your guests a handwritten thank you card within two months after the wedding.
