Do I Have To Go With Her to Register?
Registering is one of the wedding planning events the bride-to be looks forward to most. It's not a requirement you accompany her to register but it will mean a lot if you take an interest in the making of your future home. Go with her and actually enjoy the experience, and you'll win major points.
What is the Deal?
While the brides look forward to registering, many grooms dread this part of the process, but why? Do they think spending the day in a department store staring at plates is all registering is about? Not at all! Wedding registry has come a long way. While there is a portion of the time dedicated to picking out china, there are so many additional products to add to a registry.
Did You Know?
Did you know all of the options you have? When it comes time to register, think about all the things you like to do. For example, do you like to cook breakfast on Saturday mornings? How about registering for a state of the art griddle. Do you love to grill out? Register for a new gas grill. Can't make it to work in the morning without that perfect cup of coffee? How about a state-of-the-art cappuccino/espresso/coffee station? Did you know you can register for a store gift card or a new set of luggage for the honeymoon? Are you an infamous bartender to all of your friends? You can register for fun barware and utensils or a margarita machine. Research the products ahead of time to make sure you get the best deal for your guests; this will also speed up the process while in the store.
There are a lot options available for gift registry. So, think about your favorite things to do and make a list of all the gadgets and appliances that would make them better, easier or more fun. And if she sees you're enjoying yourself, maybe she will give you the scanning gun and let you fire away.
