Hello there! I’ve lurked on Weddingbee a bit but this is my first post.
My partner and I are working on our wedding invitations, and realised that our registry info should be on the invitations, so we should make one soon. And then we discovered we can hardly think of anything we want, that would work for a traditional registry!
We already live together and have all the basic household necessities. I like vintage/unique styles for things like china and crockery, and tend to find things at thrift stores and flea markets rather than regular shops.
The ideal gifts for us would be cash (like everyone else, really) and vouchers for certain shops/experiences. Of course we aren’t going to ask for cash, but if we don’t have a registry, would people just go for giving cash?
I was also considering an “experiences” registry – vouchers for restaurants we love, special experiences in the places we’re going for our honeymoon, things like that. Is that a thing? What website would we use to put one together?
Or perhaps we can just not have a registry, but have a list of these experiences so that if people ask what we want, we have answers ready?
We would also be fine with explicitly saying no gifts, but how often do people really follow that? And would people feel bad for coming without a gift even if we’ve asked for it?
Any other suggestions for a couple who can’t come up with any physical gifts to put on a registry?!
Thanks for your help!
EDIT: I see that a couple people have said there should NOT be registry information on the invitation. So how did you ladies do it?
The last few weddings my partner and I have been invited to, have all had registry info on the invitation. It seems to be a common thing in our circle and I feel like people might be expecting it?
