Guest Post: Save Yourself the Stress – Wedding Registries!

Enjoy the following Guest post from our friends at Wishpot!

When it comes to the wedding registry, there are a lot of different things you could ask for. One thing you do not want to do, however, is impulse register. Sister to the “impulse buy,” the impulse register will leave you and your husband with a pile of useless doorstoppers. It may also leave you lacking in key areas. For example, you may have three hampers (because you saw a couple cute ones and couldn’t help but ask for them all) but no spoons. And you’ve never realized how important spoons are until you don’t have any.

 The other trap you could fall into is asking for things you think you like but, once they’re in your home, hate. That funky rug could look really great in the store but make your living room look cluttered.

 Don’t end up without spoons and with clutter! Here are a few quick tips to avoid wedding registry disasters:

  1.  Get together with your hubby-to-be and figure out who has what. Get rid of duplicates, make note of things neither of you have.
  2. Don’t get trigger happy. If you see something cool, make sure it will fit in with your décor.
  3. Ask for advice. What are things people were glad they registered for? What are things they wish they hadn’t gotten?

 To help with that third step, here are a few ideas from our wise Wishpot experts!
