Wedding Gift Registries

It is that time of year when ever weekend is filled with bridal showers and weddings with summer just around the corner that I thought I would help brides and guest alike with a little blog about registry. If you are looking for a gift for an upcoming wedding or looking for a bride who is super organized, here is a couple of things to keep in mind.

1. It is etiquette to purchase a gift that is, at least, equivalent to the cost of your present at a wedding...just do a mental tally favor, drink, food etc.
2. So many things have changed with registry and different accounts that brides set up with honeymoon funds etc however; the most common gift is china
3. Referring back to number two, because there are so many registries online, a lot of people don't like to just electronically just put money in an account and not have anything physical to give...think outside the box, sign the happy couple up for fun cooking classes. Chances are if they are signing up for honeymoon accounts or other unique registries, they will love something spontaneous.
