Planning A DIY Wedding: Gift Registry

One of the most fun parts of planning a wedding can be registering for gifts, but it can also be a daunting and time-consuming task. Here are some tips and advice that will help make wedding gift registry nothing short of a good time!

First, evaluate your immediate needs. If the two of you have been living together for a while, chances are you already have most of the household necessities. Is there anything that you need to replace? (Does your vacuum make a weird, squealing noise? Does your toaster burn one slice and barely warm the other?) Think through all of your household items and make a list of anything that is worn out and in need of replacement, or that you lack altogether.

Once you've evaluated your needs, it's time to address your wants. Is there a particular pattern of china that you absolutely adore? If you're the outdoorsy type, register for any camping gear on your wish list; a new tent, a camp stove, or maybe a new lantern. When I got married, we registered for all of the classic board games missing from our collection. A few of our friends were very excited to see them on our registry and pooled together to purchase them all; they thought it was so much fun that we had asked for them!

Consider registering for other things you may need as well. If your car battery is constantly in need of charging, ask for a new one. If you don't own a hammer, a pair of screwdrivers, pliers, or any other basic tools, now is the time to make a request! Often, when people see this type of request on a gift registry, they are likely to purchase it for you because some things are obviously things you are in need of at a high priority!

When choosing where to register for wedding gifts, keep in mind where most of your guests live and their proximity to the stores you choose. If you register at Macy's and most of your guests live 200 miles away from the nearest store, your registry won't do you much good. Stores like Target and Wal-Mart are more likely to be nearer to the majority of your guests, especially those in more rural areas. That's not to say you shouldn't go ahead and register at Macy's, just that you should consider making a wish list at a larger chain as well!

Some stores also offer access to their gift registries via the internet. If you have guests who live far from where you have registered, this option may be very helpful to them! Ask when you are registering if the store has such an option.

Once you have registered for gifts, you will want to let your guests know where you are registered and how to look you up. Some places give you little cards for this info, but if not, you can easily print your own by purchasing blank business card stock from your local office supply store. Use your computer to print up little cards with all of the information and include them with your invitations.
