Most couples cite their wedding registry as one of the most boring parts of planning their big day; however, it's important for couples to embrace this tradition. Regardless of how you feel about asking loved ones for presents on your wedding day, most of your friends and family will want to bring a gift or send one on the days surrounding your wedding. Not only is it a way to show their appreciation for being invited to your celebration, but they likely want to be a part of building your new life as a married pair.

If you're not quite sure where to begin, most couples start by selecting a few retailers from which to register. Popular options include well-known department stores, high-end specialty stores like Gearys, and even home décor shops. Most retailers that have a registry program have a well-trained staff that will help you along every step of the way, but it's still important to do your own research.

While it may be tempting to point the registry gun at every item you like, you will be better off choosing only the items that you will actually want to store and use. It's imperative that you also choose pieces that go together – you don't want to open all of your gifts only to find that now you have a mess of items that you won't want to display together in your home.
