Gone are the days of strolling the aisles of local department stores scanning items to add to your registry. Let’s discuss unique ideas and options to help you receive gifts most useful for you.
#1 Use an All in One Registry Site
Websites like Zola & My Registry have gained popularity over the last few years and for good reason. These sites allow you to select items from different stores and house the registry all in one place. You’re also able to offer guests the option to make a contribution toward certain big ticket items. You’re also able to have the gifts shipped directly to your home and even manage the delivery of the items, making it a very convenient option.
#2 Experiences Over Things
A few of Scheme’s favorites are sites like Honeyfund or Hitchd. These sites are great for experiences and cash contributions to things you may want to do in the future. For example, a guest can make a contribution to a hot air balloon ride during your honeymoon. It gives the purchaser the joy of knowing where their gift is going, and you the flexibility to use those funds how and when it works for you.
#3 Celebratory Giving
Scheme Events is fortunate to plan weddings for so many thoughtful and generous couples. One of our favorite registry ideas are ones that give back. The Good Beginning or Vow for Girls is a site that allows couples to register for a favorite charity and guests can easily make contributions.
Just keep in mind, guests do want to give! Whatever you decide, make sure to have the info handy on your wedding website and inform key members of your family and bridal party so they can also pass the information along.
