Everything You Need For Your Wedding Registries.
When you’re engaged to be married, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed with all the plans, tasks and deadlines you have to keep straight.
Creating functional and beautiful wedding registries doesn’t happen by accident. It requires careful consideration to add the right items and the right quantities.
If the process has you feeling a little less than confident, you aren’t alone. We have come to the rescue and created The Dowry Wedding Registry Checklists. These printable checklists will ensure you’ve added the right home goods, in the right quantities, to your registries.
This gives the guests attending your pre-wedding celebrations – like wedding showers, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and the rehearsal dinner – a chance to shop for items picked out personally by you and your fiance. The same study discovered that the average engaged couple creates more than three different registries, and 97% of all registries are managed online.
So what does all this data mean for you? It means that:
- 7-8 months before your wedding date, you’ll want to create your wedding registries and add enough products to make sure it’s complete.
- You should create 2-3 different types of registries depending on your personal needs and wants.
- You don’t have to leave the comforts of home to do any of it. Yea!
