3…2…1…Shop: 20 Wedding Registry Ideas to Add to Your List

Wedding registry ideas: a table of wedding gifts

Next to cake tasting, picking out gifts for your registry might be the most enjoyable part of the wedding planning process.

As an engaged couple, we hope you thoroughly enjoy selecting items for your registry, and we encourage you to have fun with it. At what other point in your life will you be able to hand-select dozens of potential gifts?

When piecing together your registry, remember to include items at a number of different price points. Ideally, you will also put together a registry that is convenient for your wedding guests to access. For example, stores with locations across multiple U.S. cities (like Williams Sonoma or Bed Bath & Beyond) or stores that allow online ordering (like Amazon) are great options. With that being said, wedding registries are also a great opportunity to support small, locally-owned businesses, so feel free to include that as an option for your local guests.

Once you’ve chosen where to register, Greenvelope can help you send the information to all your guests. You can add your registry details directly to your wedding invitation, so your guest will know where to find your favorite things.

And speaking of favorite things, we’re recommending our top 20 wedding registry ideas. From mixology bar sets to luxury bedding and must-have kitchen items, you’ll find potential wedding gifts that you’ll pine for as much as your fiance.
