Getting engaged and beginning to plan your wedding is an exciting time for you and your partner. It comes with lots of different parts - picking Indian Creek as your venue, choosing your decorations, picking out the perfect dress and making your wedding registry. All of these things take some time and require a bit of planning. When making a registry, you may wonder exactly what to put on it, especially if you feel like you and your partner already have everything that you need.
If this is the case and you are struggling to decide what exactly you should put on your registry, there are some unique ideas you can choose from that may help you fill it out. You don’t always have to ask for the typical things and hopefully this list will help you out!
Use a service
Of course you can begin your registry at any store that you’d like. The only problem with doing that is that it limits you to only that store! If you would like to add multiple items from different places onto your registry, using a site like The Knot gives you that opportunity. Beyond just choosing items from different stores and locations, you can actually add cash funds or even charities to your registry. This makes it easier if you aren’t quite sure what to add or you want to give back through donation!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but adding cookware to your registry is a great idea! A lot of times people buy cheap cookware and will have to repurchase it later. This is because it can be pretty pricey. Even if you already have a decent set of cookware, there are some additional pieces you can use that can bring your cooking to the next level! If you already have your standard set of pots and pans, considering asking for a dutch oven or a cast iron skillet.
The dutch oven can be used for almost everything from stews to roasts and bread, but it is a bit expensive, which is what makes it a great gift for a couple of people to go in on together! A cast iron skillet is super versatile and can help you make all sorts of dishes and sides! This is a bit of a more inexpensive gift option!
If you feel like you have everything that you and your partner need, you may want to ask for money instead of gifts. A lot of times couples feel like this is awkward to ask or that they shouldn’t, but it is super common! The best way to go about this is to use a site like we talked about before. If you can add a cash fund to your registry, that is a great way to let people know exactly what you are asking for.
Another way to make your guests feel like they are putting their money towards something good is to let them know exactly what it is going towards. You can make a “Honeymoon Fund” or a “New Home Fund” for example. Letting them know exactly what you will be using the money for is a great way for them to still feel involved while giving a bit of an impersonal gift like money.
