Bridal registries for the modern bride by Alicia Yarrish Photography at The Olana in Dallas Texas

Choosing your bridal registries can be completely overwhelming, and honestly exhausting. There are so many options now- individual stores, websites that lump individual store registries together, and then, of course, Amazon. But how do you know which bridal registry is right for you and your fiancé? Times have changed since your parents got married. Because of that, there are some considering factors that might point you in the direction of the best bridal registry option for you and yours!

Questions to ask yourself to find your perfect wedding registry

Bridal Registry Question #1: Do you two live together?

If the answer is yes, did you have a housewarming party? In that case, you likely have the home goods you need! Additionally, you’ve probably accumulated a lot of the “big items” you need. Teylor and I lived together a good bit before getting married. We already had a KitchenAid mixer, plenty of sets of dishes, glassware, etc. If you and your fiancé already have those kitchen items set and you don’t want an upgrade you’ll be doing yourself a favor by skipping the popular Williams Sonoma bridal registry. Instead, look into things like Wayfair if you’ve been eyeballing any new home decor.

If you two don’t live together yet consider what you two have separately before registering. You’ll be surprised at how little or much you need. It all depends on how long you’ve been adulting!

Bridal Registry Question #2: Do you two have a wedding website?

If you and your fiancé have a little corner of the web in the form of a wedding website you’re probably already familiar with Zola and The Knot. These are all-inclusive websites. They allow you to read educational articles on wedding planning, grab wedding planning checklists, create a wedding website to share with guests, and even house your registry.

If you already have a wedding website live- make it easy on yourself! Utilize their tool to combine individual store registries. For example, if you are registered at Crate and Barrel and Williams Sonoma Zola or The Knot can aggregate those lists through your wedding website for a seamless experience for your guests.

Don’t have a wedding website and need a little bit of everything? Consider a big box store like Bed, Bath, and Beyond or creating a registry on Amazon.com.

Bridal Registry Question #3: What do you two value?

If you two are an ‘experience over things’ couple look into wedding registry websites that offer monetary gift contributions. You can specify what your guest’s gift will be going towards (think Honeymoon or Anniversary trip). Or you can register via Amazon.com and ask for items that will facilitate your experiences.

The items you register for don’t have to be traditional kitchen or homemaking items! Y’all, it’s 2020. If you love to explore the outdoors together register for camping gear and go make some memories!
