Have you ever thought how hard it would be for your guests to decide on a gift that they can give you on the day of your wedding? It is quite common that they’ll search for an ideal gift by just making some assumptions on what things you might want. After mindlessly going through the endless list of products on the internet many of them will just end up giving an envelope of money.
What I think will be the best option for you, as a couple getting married, would be that you can go ahead and make a wedding registry. It’ll be something that’ll help the guests to decide on a gift that is useful for you. So, you might be thinking,
No, it is not exactly an alien concept that’ll help your guests read your mind and tell them about what all the things you want for your wedding. But, it is very much closer to it(without including any alien powers). It is a way by which you can make a list of items that you need as the gift and then convey the list to your guests by adding that to your wedding website.
As far as my understanding goes, a wedding gift must be something that is useful to the couple and will help them in the daily chores and last for a lifetime instead of being locked in a cupboard only to be opened for passing it on to a different person at their wedding.
There are many mainstream gifts that you’ll want your guests to ignore as it is really a great possibility that some other person goes through the same thought process and decide to give the same gift to you. This is what makes setting up a wedding registry so much important for the guests so that they know exactly what to give you on your wedding.
Gifting the Tupperware sets in the wedding is really a thing of the past. It is quite a possibility that you’d prefer to buy the kitchenware as per your requirement and liking. So, there is always a chance that the gift you get will be there lying in some corner never to be opened again. Opposed to that, a set of handmade bowls will surely be taken good care of and will find a great place to settle somewhere in your new house.

This is probably the safest option in the gifts that you can ask your guests for. Knives are one of the most used items in a household and there is always a need for a spare one. So, adding this to your list of the bridal registry would be another great option.
Empty wishing jars in which you can save for your dreams is another great gift that you can get on your wedding. Each time you’ll add some money into those jars you’ll definitely be thanking the one who gave you that gift on your wedding.

Have some artists on your wedding guest list? It will be great to ask your guests for some great customized artworks for your wedding. You’ll be really surprised to see all the creativity that comes your way
A book is one of the best things that you can ask your guests for. You’ll be surprised when you’ll open the different gifts as you’ll surely find some great options that’ll be a great addition to your personal library. Be ready to get some great novels along with different books on relationships explaining how to overcome the common hurdles that every couple faces. You might also be gifted with a cookbook that has some great international cuisines which you can try making together with your partner.
A crate of fresh fruits and vegetables directly from a farm is another great gift that you can add to your wedding registry wishlist. It will be the healthiest thing that will double as a great wedding gift as well.
An updated Oxford dictionary is something that every house should have. And, adding it to your wedding registry when you’re shifting to your new house after your wedding is one of the most practical options.
Very much like the customized artworks, handmade gifts are also a great option to gift to a new couple. This one is my personal favourite, and to me, the thing that the guests will actually be gifting will be their precious time that they took out from their busy schedules.
Much like the set of knives, gifting the linens at the wedding is always welcomed by every couple with open arms. You might not have the need for anything else in the list of wedding registries, but an extra pair of linens is something that’ll always come in handy.
Getting the guests to know what you want as your wedding gift is not an alien concept(already cleared that in the beginning), and neither it is a new one that’s just out of the pandora’s box. This is an old concept instituted by Marshall Field & Co. in 1924 in it’s Chicago building by which the guests can gift china, silver and crystal based on the indications by the new couple.
Deciding on the wedding registry list and adding them on your wedding website for everyone to see will work as a wishlist that’ll help the guests in deciding what to gift on your wedding. This list is populated by combining the inputs of some real couples about what they want to be gifted on their own wedding.
