Indian Wedding Registry
While the preferred gifting method for Indian weddings is most often money in the form of cash or a check, a wedding registry may also make sense for your wedding.
There are a host of helpful benefits that a wedding registry website can offer both you and your guests. Firstly, it takes the burden off your guests of deciding what to get you and your groom-to-be. Instead of trying to come up with something that you can both use and enjoy, guests can rely on a wedding registry to give them options of items you have hand-picked that you genuinely want to kickstart your new life with your husband.
Secondly, a wedding registry can help prevent gift duplicates and the time-consuming process of having to return items because you received two or three of the same thing. Wedding registries also permit your guests the ease and convenience that comes with shopping online and having gifts delivered straight to you and your groom instead of having to pack them in their suitcase when they travel to your wedding.
Outside of physical gift registries, some couples like to build wish lists that serve more as a fund to help bankroll their honeymoons, like a wedding registry India, Hawaii, or Mexico where friends and family can simply chip in money. Similarly, some couples also like to ask guests who want to give gifts to donate instead to a home fund to help bulk up their savings for buying a new house.
When it comes to putting your wedding registry together, keep these important tips in mind. Take your time building your dream collection, involve your soon-to-be husband, and take stock of all the items you two already own. Opt for at least 2 to 4 stores where you register for gifts across a wide price range to give guests plenty of options.
Find out how easy the gift-buying process is by speaking directly with a sales representative from the store, i.e. ask if guests can purchase gifts online as well as over the phone. And finally, keep track of what is being bought, add items as the choices dwindle, and find out if you can get a discount on any items that are leftover that you might like to buy yourself.
