Wedding Registry

Our wedding registry was so fun to create. It was a blast imagining the things that would fill our home. I had a friend over one night and we sat together and created the majority of the registry. I edited and changed things up frequently, up until a few months before the wedding when most people purchase gifts. 

One of the most important things to keep in mind, in my opinion, when you are creating a registry is to provide a variety of items in various price ranges. From shopping for couples, I can tell you that it is difficult when the only things left are out of your budget, except for two $5 items leftover. I feel that the majority of your registered items should be in the $25-50 range. But be sure to include some cheaper items and some splurge gifts, too! I think it's completely okay to include that KitchenAid mixer and the beautiful comforter set you've had your eye on—if someone doesn't want to spend that much, they won't! By including it, you're not forcing anyone to buy anything.

Also remember that you will not get everything you put on your registry. Most stores that you can register with will give you a coupon code to complete your registry. I believe Target and Bed Bath and Beyond were 20% off—but only on things that you already had on your registry!

I registered at Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Pottery Barn, and Belk. Williams Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, Amazon, Macy's, The Container Store, Anthropologie, Restoration Hardware, West Elm, Walmart, Frontgate, and Sur La Table are all great options, too. You may even have local boutiques or hardware stores that offer wedding registries! Some sites, like Zola, help you to combine all your registries into one location.

I've created a wedding registry checklist for you to use as you create your registry! You can also access the checklist as a Google doc, here

The hyperlinks take you to items that I personally love and enjoy in my own home!
