Registry

Expert Advice: Registry Tips by Lucia Paul Design . Over the years, couples have changed and so have their registries. Modern wedding registries are going beyond linens and toasters. With online shopping and national retailers, there is no set list of items that you must register for. Today, couples are getting married at older ages and may have been living together for quite some time. In addition to the traditional items, couples are also registering for recreational items, such as computers, camping gear, and pet accessories. However, before you arm yourself with the handy little scanner, here are a few tips you may want to consider. (click on image to be directed to registry page)

1.It is recommended to register at least 4-6 months in advance. This gives you and your guests time to review and choose.
2.Register with two and maybe three different merchants. This allows your gift givers to have more options. Make sure at least one of the merchants has online capabilities.
3.Do read the terms and conditions of the store’s registry policy before signing. Watch out for extra service charges and policies for discontinued items.
4.Don’t shy away from the expensive items, but do make sure that you have items that fit every budget.
5.Check for completion packages through the retailer. Some offer a discount on items that aren’t purchased on your registry.
6.Do register for extra! Just because you only need 6 place settings now doesn’t mean that’s what you will always need. Look at the big picture and think of the future.
7.Make sure that your registry fits you and your fiancé’s personality – let mom advise but do NOT let your mom dictate what you need (sorry Mom’s).
8.Have a friend check your front door step while you’re on your honeymoon. You don’t want to risk having any gifts stolen while you’re gone.
9.Make sure that you know what you’re registering for; do your research and make informed decisions.

Your registry items are not just material things; it is the vase you will put your Valentines Day flowers in, the wine glasses you will toast with your closest friends and the china that your children remember eating family meals on. So choose carefully and scan wisely.
