Wedding Registry Basics – What you should know when registering for your wedding

bridal1

You’re getting married and it’s time to set up your wedding registry (also known as a bridal registry). Your friends and family are going to give you gifts. By creating a registry, you’ll help ensure that they’ll be spending time, energy and money on something you really want and/or will use.

Give yourself time to browse.  Its good to began working on the gift registry about nine months before your big day. This will allow you some time to browse and decide which stores you would like to utilize for the registry. Take time to go to stores and use the registry gun because it’s really fun; but also use the internet registries which make it less time consuming to add items to your registry list.

Only register for items that you know you will use. The scanning gun is a powerful thing. Next thing you know you’re registered for all types of unnecessary household items – bread maker? Totally. Salad spinner? Of course..Try to register for gifts you know you will put to use right away. The last thing you’ll be doing as soon as you get home from your honeymoon is making bread from scratch!

Be sure to choose things that will last a long time. Do a little research before you decide on an item. If you need a new vacuum, be sure to look up consumer reviews first. It stinks when something you received as a wedding gift breaks only a few short months after the wedding.

Don’t forget to include items that are in the $20-$50 range. Everyone wants to buy you something, but not everyone wants to spend $100. Keep that in mind and select some lower priced items as well. Napkin rings, napkins and place-mats will always be needed and are great for people attending the wedding on a budget.

3. Consider how you will store the items when registering.
 Kitchen appliances seem great at the time you register, until you get them all together in your kitchen. If your cabinet and cupboard space is limited, it can be a headache trying to fit everything onto your counters.

Get a crock-pot. One dish meals are the secret weapon of wives around the world. A pot that cooks while you’re at work? Done and done.

Go classic. Your tastes will invariably change so make sure to register for classic items that you won’t get tired of after a few years. So don’t register for the burnt orange blender unless you truly love it.

The best way you can tell wedding guests about your registry is through printed card inserts, which you can include inside of the invitations. Or you can post a link on your wedding website and list the website inside of your invites. In some cases, there is an online buying option where friends and family can find the items you’ve registered for directly on the department store’s website.

Your wedding is shortly approaching, and suddenly, it’s here! On the days leading up to your big day, you might find yourself panicking about some of the small details. And while sometimes a little hiccup may be impossible to avoid, we wanted to give you some pointers on how to keep stress at bay in the days leading up to your wedding…

Have a Spa Day! Could you think of anything better then being pampered before your wedding day? The pre-wedding spa day has become increasingly popular with brides and their bridesmaids. So put some cucumber on those eyes, get a mani/ pedi or even a special bridal Swedish massage. This will definitely help ease your mind before your wedding day.

Quality Time with Friends: Enjoy a relaxing girl’s movie night or night-in with all of your bridesmaids before the wedding. Laughing with close friends and family will always take the edge off.

Wake Up Refreshed: 8 hours of sleep before your wedding helps guarantee that you will have the energy for the whole day. Research shows that loss of sleep can manifest into irritability, impatience, inability to concentrate, and moodiness; basically all of the things you don’t want to be on your wedding day.

The Back Up Alarm: This seems like a given, especially for brides that are heavy sleepers. Do not let oversleeping be your biggest fear. Set a back up alarm for your alarm, just in case.

Wedding planners are here to make certain that your special day is just that, your day. Our job is event management as well as small details. Let LimeLight Expressions help make your wedding stress free. We want your wedding to be the beautiful celebration you’ve always dreamed of.
