While many brides and grooms feel as though their guests’ presence is a gift in itself, most of your attendees will want to bring a present to the wedding for the newlyweds. To help your loved ones select items that you and your future spouse will enjoy, it’s important to have a registry. Not only do bridal registries help you and your new spouse stock the contents of your new home together, but you’ll cherish the gifts for many years to come and always remember who gave you what item.

Most couples select between 1-4 stores for guests to choose from. If most of your guests will be traveling from across the country for the event, it’s a good idea to select chain stores that have locations all around the United States. If you have your heart set on registry items from a local shop, we encourage you to also give registry store options that are more easily accessible. In this technological age, many stores have both in-store and online registry tools. In-store registries are great because you can see and touch items in person, as well as receive feedback and information from a store specialist. Online registries are also helpful because brides and grooms can read product reviews, and also make quick changes to quantities and product details. And some couples choose to create a honeymoon registry that helps fund their vacation.

Browse the latest bedding, cookware, china, and more on and get ideas of what to add to your wedding registry. Remember to choose items in a variety of price points so all of your guests will be able to find a gift that fits their budget. To find a store with a registry in a state near you, use the Inside Weddings vendor directory to contact a registry specialist.
