Think you have to register for pots and pans just because you are getting married? Well, you’re wrong. While in the past, most people registered for household items, nowadays wedding registries are getting more personal, more detailed, and frankly a whole lot cooler. People are registering for things that they can do outside of their home, whether it’s a honeymoon fund, a nonprofit they support, or just for something they enjoy doing as a hobby on the weekend.
Since you may find yourself crafting like crazy pre-wedding, one way to help you get some money back is by using the Etsy registry. Not only can you pick out cute gifts and decorations, you can also help support small businesses and artists all over the world.
For those that feel like they have it all or don’t want anything at all, you may want to consider using a registry where your wedding guests can donate to the charity or non-profit of your choice.
Attention pizza lovers: you can now register for Dominos pizza. While it might seem like a silly thing to register for, it might start to make more sense when you begin to realize marriage isn’t easy and if you occasionally have a free pizza coming your way, your post-work dinner conversation can be solved.
If you’re the kind of person who can’t make their mind up about what to register for or just wants a little bit of everything on their registry, go with Amazon. You can add anything from headphones to towels, mattresses to clothing, even hammocks.
