Bridal Registry
The Bridal Registry
When two people decide
to get married, a lot of
planning is involved to
make that date a
memorable one. The
wardrobe of the spouses
will be made, the venue of
the wedding and the
reception have to be
agreed on including how
much will be spent for
Months before the
wedding, it will be a good
idea to sign up for a bridal
registry. This will surely help the spouses get specific things for the new home instead
of having to buy it from the store.
Who invented the idea of a bridal registry? This was first done many years ago in a
Chicago based department store which first offered it to newly wed couples. A lot of
retailers got hooked on the idea and almost everyone is doing it from the electronics
store to the ones selling accessories for home improvement.
Most department stores offer this service. The engaged couple will just select the
desired items from the selling area and the sales clerk will take note of everything. The
representative can even help select some if the lovers are unsure of which item to get.
Some couples do not only register in one store. Some have done it in several ones
especially when the brand that the lovers’ want is not available in one place and is only
available in the other.
A great way which will serve as a guide for which items to get for the bridal registry will
be to think of the items that will be needed in the new home. This should match the
color of the walls so it is able to blend in with the surroundings.
Other items, which may be needed in the last minute, can also be done by the store.
After all, those who are counting the days done will be stressed out worrying about the
other details.
When this is finished, the engaged party should inform family and friends about it to avoid getting a similar item as
a wedding gift. This is usually done by having this printed on the invitation.
If the couple is close to those attending the event, it wouldn’t hurt to do this by saying it up front. The same answer
can be given to those who decide to ask.
Guests who are looking for a gift will be escorted around by the sales clerk explaining which items are the only
ones left that have not been selected. If nothing is within the budget of those who want to buy a gift, the store can
suggest giving a gift certificate instead as the present.
There are some who find the idea of a bridal registry offensive. This is because the couple is asking for something
instead of just being thankful of whatever is given. On the other hand, it serves the purpose of only getting the
essentials, which is why more people are doing the same thing.
There are incidents wherein the newly weds still get the same item perhaps because the guest did not have time to
look at the bridal registry. Fortunately, most retailers will allow this to be exchanged for something else.
In fact, some couples have even went to the extent of registering for this online so that guests from out of town can
check what gifts can be given for the wedding.
Aside from the usual home appliances that come from the bridal registry, others have decided to also add to the
wish list certain things after the wedding. This can be the airfare for the dream honeymoon destination, a guided
tour while staying there, a romantic dinner in a fancy restaurant and body care in a spa.
This is considered to be practical given that the couple has already spent so much for the wedding preparations.
Registries are also being done for newborn babies. Instead of those expensive items, toys and accessories are the
usual things that parents ask for which will be very useful for the infant.
The wedding registry is simply a wish list. Not all of the items may be given during that special day but most of the
items will surely be a big help for those who have decided to start a new life together as husband and wife.
