3 Tips for Creating Your Wedding Registry

There are so many fun parts to planning your wedding, from dress shopping to cake tastings. But what’s more fun than creating a wish list of the things that you’d like for your new life as a married couple! We had the pleasure of visiting Sandy in the wedding registry department at Macy’s Millenia Mall to discuss tips for starting your wedding registry.

Why create a wedding registry?

A wedding registry gives you the opportunity to create a wish list of items that you’d like to have but may not purchase for yourself. It allows you to really come together with your future spouse to create a style that is representative of you as a couple for your home. Even if you have already established a home together, a registry gives you the opportunity to receive gifts for items that you my not have purchased yet or new items that you’d like to have.

When should you create your wedding registry?

Usually, 4-6 months before the wedding is a great time to create your wedding registry. This ensures that your registry is up to date and gives options to your guests, not only for your wedding but for your bridal shower as well. Your wedding registry can be updated at any time and most companies allow you to do so online as well as in store. Macy’s provides their couples with the opportunity to go in store to speak with registry specialists but also add to their registry online in the convenience of their home.

What price points should I register for?

Weddings are a time when people tend to be more generous then they would be for, lets say, a birthday. You’re guests want to have a variety of options when purchasing a gift for you. It is suggested that you have items on your registry that are at low, middle, and high price points. Guests may also come together to purchase a more expensive gift for you, so having those options available make it easier for them to do so. Some registries even allow you to purchase items left on your wedding registry at a discount after the wedding. Macy’s allows couples to purchase left over items up to a year after their wedding at 20% off. This is your chance to go crazy and register for all the items that you love!
