When creating a wedding registry, you must consider all factors of your household. Try to think about a registry first for what you need and not what you want. Be sure to review all items that each of you will bring into the relationship. What will you have double of and where will it all go? In addition, what do you want to have new that will be considered “ours” instead of his or hers?
Wedding registries are a great way to ask for those items that both of you need and want as “ours”. In many situations, you need cookware for making meals, you need electronics for entertainment and financial planning, you need dinnerware and glassware to eat on, furniture to sit on and so on. One particular registry may not meet all of your needs. This is why MyRegistry.com is a great solution for combining many businesses’ registries into one.
MyRegistry offers popular stores:
Home goods stores – Pottery Bard, Crate & Barrel and Target
Electronic stores – Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon
Outdoor goods – REI, Sears
For The Home – Bloomingdales, West Elm, Ethan Allen.
As we are all constant mobile users, a great feature is the ability to scan barcodes with your cell phone and add them to your registry. This way you can go and see the items in person to add to your list without the use of paper! The worry of seeing what items look like in person is better than hoping it looks like the picture online. Other great features of the app include managing your registry, add items not in the store or online, and marking items as purchased.
What about those couples that are bringing two full households together? MyRegistry offers the option for cash gifts as well. Want extra spending money for your honeymoon, saving up for a dream vacation or a big purchase like a down payment on a new home? Then a cash registry is a perfect fit.
In conclusion, what aspects of MyRegistry excite us? You get a personalized look to your registry like a wedding registry website. You have one location for multiple stores helping you get exactly what you want instead of having multiple registries. You have it all in one universal gift registry.
