My son and daughter in-law got married in a small civil ceremony due to Covid restrictions. Can we send out wedding announcements that tactfully incorporate a wedding registry?
Wedding registries have changed, especially for Offbeat Brides, and wedding registry etiquette has also changed. Etiquette can help reduce the stress and strife that can come up around registries, though. Check out our practical tips.
We’re no strangers to charitable registries — they’re some of our favorite ways to channel funds to awesome organizations (and so you don’t end up with a bunch of stuff you don’t even need!). If you’re a bibliophile who loves to support your local public library, this wedding registry concept is stellar.
Instead of that traditional gift registry, you can easily create a wedding charity registry in support of The New York Public Library!

Y’all know we are all about experience gifts instead of more stuff we don’t need. That’s why honeymoon registries, cash registries, and registering for experiences is one of the most flexible ways to receive wedding gifts you’ll actually use.

But sometimes your guests would rather get you something you can hold or that they can see you open. That’s where this new kind of gift registry comes in…
