The whole point of a wedding is to celebrate the start of the rest of your life with the love of your life. This big day allows you to show everyone important to you just exactly who you and your loved one are, together. As eager as you are to give them a glimpse of your future life together, they are just as eager to witness and be a part of it. Your guests want nothing but the best for you. Since your wedding will likely have many, many people in attendance- one of the few ways a guest can show how excited they are for you is with a carefully selected gift. Here marks the importance of a registry.
The wedding is all about you- so a registry should be all about you. Your wedding registry should be filled with the necessities (and extras!) for you and your spouse to start your life together. Whatever it may be, it is important. No one knows this better than your guests. When creating your registry, make sure that you focus on the things YOU want. Take advice from others who have done this before, but do not choose something just because they tell you to. After all, a registry is a simple representation of you and your future spouse, so take some time to really think about it. There will be items on the list that you will use, together, for the rest of your lives! (Or until the need to be replaced/refurbished). Which leads me to my next point: never settle for an alternative.
If you want a specific set of wine glasses, register for THAT specific set of wine glasses. Sometimes, brides only want two or three different registries because they can be difficult to keep track of. This means that they only register at two or three different stores. To their surprise, sometimes the items they really want are not sold at those stores. Many will compensate and select something as close as possible to the original. This marks the importance of the Universal Wedding Registry. At myregistry.com, these problems can be solved. It is the most advanced and simplified way to register for your important items. Not only can you add gifts from every store, but you can also sync multiple registries for easy access. A few of the store registries that can be synced include PotteryBarn, Williams-Sonoma, Anthropologie, Crate&Barrel, etc. In addition, if you find an item while at one of your favorite stores, you can scan the bar code of said item to add it directly to your registry. Power in the tip of your finger! The registry is truly simplified, but definitely superior.
