Check out Target’s Club Wedd! It’s a great way to register for the things that you need and well, the things that you want! Registering for gifts can be fun and exciting, but it can also be a bit of a chore.
Here are my Top Five Tips on Registering for gifts:
1. Register Early Do this shortly after you get engaged, but before you get involved with all the wedding planning. You will still be super excited and won’t feel stressed about getting it done later.
2. Take Inventory at Home Take note of what you already have and what you want. This is a good time to ask your guy what he wants or needs. Play fair, they are his gifts too!
3. Register for What you Want Be sure to put all the things that you want on your registry. Feel free to include whatever you love, be it electronics, bedding, pots and pans, appliances, or even camping equipment.
Just make sure that they are things that you will actually use. (Do you really think you will use a bread maker or a 12 piece set of fine china?)
4. Cover All Price Points and Register Online Make several choices in gifts that under $50, under $75, under $100, under $200 and beyond so all of your guests can choose the gift that they can afford. Spread the word that you are registered online. Guests will appreciate that they can order your gifts from home and get them shipped to you early!
5. Mind Your Manners!
Be sure to get those thank you notes out ASAP! If you receive a gift before the wedding, be sure to send a thank you note out within two weeks. For gifts that are received on the wedding day, be sure to get those thank you notes sent out one month after you return from your honeymoon!
