Which wedding gift registries shall we sign up with?


A gift registry means you will only get gifts that you want, and makes the gift-buying process easier for your guests. You can request a whole variety of items at a range of prices that suit every pocket, and are guaranteed to love all of your gifts.

Choosing gifts

Make sure to set aside a full day to carefully discuss which items you want to put on your gift registry. Even though many grooms dread any kind of shopping, you need to work closely together to come up with your wedding list as you will have to live with the decisions you make for many years, and if you are setting up home together for the first time, this is the perfect opportunity to create a comfortable and well-equipped home.

Choosing retailers

It is a good idea to choose at least three retailers for your gift registry as this gives your guests more flexibility in terms of the location of the stores and the price of the gift. Make sure at least one gift registry offers Internet shopping to make things more convenient for your guests; most retailers often online registration and shopping for couples and guests.

Your lists or the links to your lists can be put onto your wedding website if you have one, as well as sent out with the invitations.

Some popular retailers offering gift registries are JCPenney, Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, and Kohl’s.

Cash gifts

If you prefer to receive a monetary gift, consider mentioning what you plan to spend your gift money on. Many people like to feel that they are contributing to buying a particular item, or to help pay for an extra-special honeymoon, rather than just adding to your joint savings account!


One company that offers this option is Deposit a Gift cash gift registry, which offers registries for all occasions. Guests can choose which item to contribute to on your customizable registry page.

Whichever gifts you receive, ensure you send a hand-written thank note as soon as possible after the wedding.
