Registry Etiquette

>> March 18, 2010


When Registering for your wedding there a few things to keep in mind..


1. Don't go overboard - Try to stick to 2 or 3 stores max that can be accessed nationwide. Make sure to hit different price points as well so your guests can make their choices easier.


2. Do it early - Get out and pick your stores to register at about 4-6 months before the wedding. This will give your guests time to plan and budget if they need to.


3. Don't add your registry information to your invitation - Let immediate family and friends know and then only tell people when asked. It is a great thing to add to your wedding website or blog as well.


4. Don't limit your registry - Don't just think of what you need or your style now. Most people keep their wedding china or some of the more elegant pieces for years.


5. Write your Thank-you's right away - An easy way to keep up on them is to write it the day you receive the gift. If you can't do that or you are waiting till after the wedding, don't send them any more than 3 months after the wedding.

If anyone is having problems with #1 and can't seem to find 2 or 3 stores with everything you want, you might want to consider a universal registry. I recently discovered myregistry.com, and am now able to add items from any store to one registry, so it has solved that problem for me.
