Believe it or not, setting up a registry for wedding gifts is something that many couples forget to include in their wedding planning, but singing up for a bridal registry is a must.

For most people, buying a wedding gift is a daunting task unless you happen to know the bride and groom extremely well. If you have a wedding gift registry set up with ample choices, then you will make things much easier on your friends and family.

Basically how it works is, you go to a store and set up a bridal registry and as a couple you can decide on a range of items that you need and/or like to receive as gifts.¬† Then, you send your wedding guests to that store where they can view the list of items on the registry and once they buy a gift, it is automatically removed. This way, you are guaranteed that you will not receive¬† duplicate gifts and your guests will feel good about getting you a gift you will enjoy. It’s a win-win!

You can even register at a few different stores, since not everyone is going to like to shop at the same stores you happen to love, and this also gives them even more options. Just be sure to remember not to put the same gifts on two or more registries.

Ultimately, it’s a benefit for everyone to have at least one registry to choose from. Remember to choose a variety of gifts that cover a wide range of budgets that include everyone.¬† Although you may be starting out with your life and need a lot of big ticket items, you don’t want to exclude the guests who may not have a big budget available to them for wedding gifts.
