What Type of Wedding Registry is Right For You
Creating your wedding registry is often one of the most fun aspects of getting ready for your wedding. It’s guilt-free (and cash free) shopping for the things you really need, really want, or would just plain never buy for yourself. These days, the wedding registry comes in so many forms that it can be confusing and hard to choose just one!
In-Store Wedding Registry
This is the most traditional option for your wedding registry. Most couples choose two or three different stores so that their guests have options in any area of the country. The internet has made it easy for guests to purchase gifts and have them shipped, as most stores offering a wedding registry will give you the option of having it available online. Be sure to select at least one store with a national presence or a web site.
Honeymoon Wedding Registry
Now your wedding registry can include your honeymoon! You set the different segments (airfare, rental car, hotel, meals, activities, etc.) and assign a value to them. Guests can purchase all or a part of an available item and send you a personal message. When your wedding registry expires (a week before your wedding date), you are mailed a check for the amount contributed by your guests. In essence, you are reimbursed for the cost of your honeymoon! Click hereto register for your honeymoon using Wedding Solutions’ online wedding registry. Unlike most sites offering this type of wedding registry, there is no cost to the couple, so you can try it risk-free.
Mortgage Wedding Registry
Like the honeymoon wedding registry, the mortgage wedding registry allows your guests to contribute toward a large purchase. Generally, this type of wedding registry is handled through the actual mortgage brokerage. You purchase a home and arrange for a mortgage. The amount gifted to your wedding registry is deducted from the amount you owe on your mortgage.
