You can do practically everything online these days to do with getting married. And there is a particularly well-developed set of services when it comes to shopping for your wedding – namely, the online wedding registries. Some people think that off-line or online, wedding registries are a bit tacky – because they look like you are really anxious for all those gifts.
That’s not really the way to look at it though. Starting a new household happens to be huge undertaking. And any new couple can use all the help they can get. Basically, you can just start a registry at any store up there. The problem with that though is that if something you want isn’t available there – books or clothing or whatever – it’s just tough luck. Basically, you want a one-stop registry for your wedding where you can register for things that come from just about every kind of department. Try the following online wedding registries for everything that you could possibly want, all in one place.
Without a doubt, Amazon’s wedding registry is the most popular in the business. Certainly, you have access to their mega-huge product lineup when you sign up to their registry. But they have other important little services that help round their service out, too. For every single thing out of that registry that someone on your guest list buys for you, they send you an e-mail so that you can know who bought what when it’s time to send out a thank you note. They also have lots of articles to help you make the right choices.
The Big Day Honeymoon Registry is, as you might guess from the name, a place for couples to sign up when the one thing need is a great exotic honeymoon and not more stuff table linen. It’s like the Amazon of honeymoons or vacations. You can request on your registry everything that you want for your vacation – plane tickets, a meal at some special restaurant in the city you’ll visit, a luxury spa visit and so on. It’s one of the newer ideas in online weddings registries.
Social Gift is another interesting take on registries. You get on the catalog they publish, and all your friends vote on the best gifts to give you, contribute to it until it is paid for, and the company then ships it to you. It’s a nice way to do things.
And finally, for the best of all the online weddings histories out there, try registering to MyRegistry – a wedding registry that gives you the pick of every registry at every store online.
