Creating your wedding registry is an important step in the planning process. It can be both exciting and stressful at the same time. While it’s exciting to think of all the gifts you will be getting, it’s stressful finding the right color/size/price of each item and managing all of your finds for your guests.
There are a number of online tools to use for creating registries, including creating a charity registry through the I Do Foundation.
Many couples chose to use major department stores to create their registries. Before your decide to go that route, read this article by Creating the Future. As I read it, I realized something we all too often forget: If you’re tired of seeing local businesses go out of business, give them your business!
Support local businesses and register your wedding at local retail shops. There are plenty of furniture, kitchen, book, spice, and home stores that offer registries and catalog their merchandise online (for Out-Of-Town guests).
We all love the personal approach of “Mom and Pop” shops in our areas. Show them you appreciate them, and give them your business for your wedding.
