Choosing the best wedding registry for you
1. Discuss your priorities
Have you and your partner discussed your priorities and values for your lives together? If you've already got a fully stocked and furnished home, perhaps choosing a honeymoon or experience registry is best for you.
2. Consider your needs
Take an inventory of the items in your home(s) that are old, out of date, low-quality, or could use a replacement. Register for items that “uplevel” the things you own that aren't of the best quality.
3. Weigh the options and make a choice
Once you've identified your life priorities and any furnishing needs, select the best wedding registry option to help you fulfill those goals! Using the list above, you should have a pretty great jumping off point to make this decision.
