We're seriously indebted to the brain behind the 'gift registry'. When it comes to the topic of weddings and gifts, a wedding gift registry is the 'win win' solution for brides, grooms and their guests. A wedding gift registry gives guests peace of mind, while couples receive gifts they actually like, but where to start on creating that wedding gift registry? The experts in giftware at Vera Wang Wedgwood share their top tips to help you create an awesome wedding gift registry, with everything you want and more!
Include items you wish for, but would not necessarily purchase
This is the perfect time to get your hands on those items you love, but just can't quite justify on a regular shopping spree!
Consider each room in your home and include decorative items, not just the practical
These days you can add anything you want to your wedding gift registry, you're not limited to items in the kitchen.
Think of exclusive pieces, prestige items you may not have a chance to acquire later
These are the items that you'll keep forever and they'll only grow in value. Plus these are gifts that guests love to give!
There's plenty of time to be practical later! If you like it, put it on the registry, this is the one time you don't have to ask yourself - 'do I really need this?'
Include the "forever" dinner set or crystal items
This is absolutely essential, it's not everyday you go out and buy fine china or crystal and what better way to mark the occasion of your marriage - you'll never regret having them!
Include chic and stylish tableware.
We're all entertaining more at home and as you start a new life together you're sure to be hosting lots of dinner parties, birthday celebrations and even Christmas lunch!
Look towards what's happening in the fashion world for inspiration.
Your wedding gift registry will be the envy of those shopping it! Current trends include metallics and opulence.
Consider pieces that are not directly matched, but compliment one another
Just because you've decided on a white dinner set, doesn't mean everything on your gift registry has to be white. Think about how key pieces might work within a certain colour palette or style to add interest.
Choose statement pieces
Statement pieces will make any room shine!
Mix vintage pieces with contemporary
Choose a mixture of classic and contemporary items for a well rounded registry.
Gift registry allows you to fill your home with loving memories of family and friends
Keep your family and friends in mind when choosing items for your wedding gift registry. Your grandmother may cherish the opportunity to buy you crystal glasses, while your cheeky friend will love to give you something fun and fancy!
Have fun with it, be considered and a little adventurous
Enjoy the experience, after all, putting together a wedding registry is the most fun you'll have shopping without buying a thing!
