You’re Engaged! Congratulations! Next Step Gift Registry

  I know what you are thinking, “One more item to add to the ever growing “To Do” list.

It’s true this is one more item that needs to be taken care of and the sooner the better.   Sit back a moment, this is a FUN task, but one that needs a plan.  This is a short list of how to have fun and register for awesome gifts to fill your new life together.

Brides: 10 Items Couples Forget to Register For—But Shouldn't | Wedding Registry:

  1. Choose your stores wisely.

Who makes up your guest list?  Will guest want to travel to a store or purchase online?

When choosing your two stores (make it easy for guest and you!), be certain you are aware of the return policy.  Online stores are great, but don’t you really want to see , feel, and touch the item to check it’s quality, before you add it to your home?

  1. Take stock of what you have.

If I walked into a store and registered without some idea of what I needed/wanted, the list would be very, very long!

Remember you are or may have already combined two households.  This is your chance to throw out that old crappy pizza pan and register for a brand new improved crust crisper pizza pan.

Make your list, include color choices, amounts, and sizes of the items you would like to register for.

  1. Registry is not just for the Kitchen & Bath

I love the fact that couples have the opportunity to register for a ladder, garden tools, power tools, or any kind of tools.  This is an enormous help, especially if you are purchasing your first home

  1. Over Register

Remember you can always return items.   It may sound like a lot to register for twelve place settings, but take it from me, it isn’t.  (I have age on my side)  Those extra plates will come in handy one day.

Wedding Registry Tips She seriously has the best tips ever.: Every time I go to pull out my nice china, I kick myself. Because its not there. It never was.

  1. Make it a Date Night

You have your list ready; your appointment at the store of your choice is scheduled.  Now make a dinner reservation.  Allow a few hours at the store to start registering, then go to dinner and relax.   You can always go back to add items if you do not finish.

Remember, This is a FUN task!

  1. Thank You

I see you rolling your eyes!   This can be another one of those tasks that can be made easy.  When you receive a gift, pull out that Thank You that is already addressed and write it. (HINT: When addressing your Wedding Invitations, address the Thank Yous as well).  Mail it; check it off the guest list, DONE!
