Whether you are a guest for a wedding or the one who is getting married, choosing a gift for the wedding couple (if you are a guest) or for your would-be (if you are getting married) is a real stressful job, given the fact that you can’t predict anything about the recipient’s taste. Here a wedding registry is really a great help; still, you will have to remember certain points which will make you choose just the right gift for your loved one and be remembered and appreciated.
1. Focus on Useful Items
It may seem boring to buy gifts like dining sets, crockery or cutlery sets or a blender. However, the fact is that they are real useful. When there would be a lot of guests to the couple’s house and such a set gifted by you will come handy, the couple will surely remember you and thank you, though firstly they might have found the gift useless and just to keep lying in their kitchen cabinet. Even kitchen appliances tend to stop working; if the bride in her new home faces such a situation, there will immediately be the appliance gifted by you at her service, instead of having to buy a new one. On the contrary, gifting curios has a risk of not being to the liking of your recipient; they don’t come in the category of ‘useful’ items.
2. Hurry Up
Before all the items on the registry are bought by other guests, hurry up and you are left wondering what to gift to the couple, hurry up and buy the gift of the couple’s choice.
3. Consider Pooling together with Other Guests
When you want to gift the couple something they desire the most but you don’t have a budget for it, it’s a good idea to pool together with other guests, so that the couple gets the gift they want and you don’t have to break the bank. Just ask around to check if any of other guests would like to partner with you to get the couple a gift like a couple massage or an expensive piece of jewelry.
4. Customize Your Gift
Whatever gift item you may choose, there is no better idea than personalizing it with the couple’s names or initials, wedding date and a cute personal message. You can choose any gift that is just for the two of them, like wine glasses, a pair of pillows, coffee mugs and many others, and get them imprinted with the couple’s names. Or you can gift a personalized wedding poster – something really heartwarming! Consider this service:
