Bridal or Wedding Registries … there was a time in the not so distant past that you cannot even think of suggesting to a bride that she should sign up for a bridal registry. It was just … not done. Back then, people felt that the soon-to-be-married couple were being cheeky for even suggesting what they wanted to receive as wedding presents. Engaged couples don’t drop hints about things like that, they should just accept whatever gift they are given with a smile and send a monogrammed thank you card afterwards.
How times have changed. Today, most couples wouldn’t think twice about signing up for a bridal registry. And their guests wouldn’t feel the least bit offended if the wedding invitation came with a little notecard identifying which shop the couple had registered in, or the kind of gift they wanted to receive. It’s quite practical really … for the couple, they receive the items that they need, while the guests will no longer have to rack their brains trying to figure out what present to give. If you need more convincing, here are some more benefits of signing up for a bridal or wedding registry.
