Almost as soon as you announce your engagement, people will start asking where you’re registered and what types of gifts you need the most. Wedding registries are great because they can help you avoid receiving six toasters in various colors and sizes. When it comes to items you need to start your life together, there are tiers. There are must-haves and really wants. The trick is to make sure that you get the must-haves first. Here are a few tips for creating a wedding registry before your big event at the Crystal Ballroom in Metro West.

Multiple Wedding Registries

From your great aunt Irma to your father’s business partner, your guests all have different budgets and the amount they can spend on varies. The key is to create multiple registries, such as one at Target for people on a budget and another at Crate and Barrel or Macy’s for people with more money to spend. It doesn’t cost you anything to create registries but you need to be careful not to ask for the same item or item type on multiple registries.

Start Small

Create a master list of the items you’d like to receive as wedding presents. Start by adding the things that you need most at varying price points to the registries. As the items are bought and the available items become more scarce, add additional items to the registry. You just need to make sure that you’re checking the registry frequently, especially right after the invitations go out and as the date draws closer. In this way, you can ensure that you get your must-haves along with a variety of the really wants.
