3 Ways to Jazz Up Your Registry
Wedding Registry Alternatives for Modern Couples
Your wedding registry – a one stop shop for your loved ones to send you off into married life with everything you might possibly need. While registries once almost exclusively included things like full sets of china, silver and other kitchenware, these days couples are thinking outside of the box and truly personalizing their registries to match their style and needs. Here are 3 different tools that you can use to help you tailor your registry for you and your fiancé.
Zola prides themselves in evolving the wedding registry process. They allow couples to register for items that the site hand picks, as well as pretty much anything you can find on any site on the inter-webs with their handy extension tool (or you can import registries from other popular stores). Additionally, couples can register for things like experiences (cooking classes!) and honeymoon funds (excursions!). Personalization, shipping, and gift-sharing options make the site especially user friendly for couples and their guests alike.
As more and more modern couples opt to live together before their I Do’s, many find themselves without much of a need for all of the kitchenware and household items that are found on common registries. Honeyfund allows their guests to contribute to the honeymoon of their dreams by creating a honeymoon registry. Guests can contribute to the overall trip, or designate their funds toward specific experiences like $50 for a day trip to French Wine Country or a ticket to a traditional Hawaiian Luau.
3. I Do Foundation
Share your love with the world and create a charitable gift registry with the I Do Foundation. Choose causes and organizations that are close to your heart so your guests can donate in lieu of purchasing unnecessary nicknacks and other items you will never use.
