The benefits of a wedding gift registry

First of all, we need to get you into the right frame of mind. Here are some perks to setting up a gift registry.

You avoid multiple guests getting you the same item.

You avoid guests buying you household items you already have.

You dodge guests buying you appliances you would never use.

Every item on the list is something one or both you actually want.

You make life easier for guests who are worried they don’t know you well enough to buy a present
you’ll really like.

Your mates will be in debt to you because you spared them having to go shopping.

You can even get large items, like a new sofa or TV as many registries allow you to divide up the cost of bigger items into smaller present packages your guests can fund.
