Knowing where to begin when starting your wedding registry can be daunting. There are so many options out there and so many shops to choose from—not to mention the challenge of merging your taste with your partner’s. But we're here to make your decisions easy for you. All you have to remember are these guidelines:
THERE IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Choose two or three items per invitation, and be sure to include a range of prices.
THINK BEYOND THE KITCHEN AND DINING ROOM
Gone are the days of registering only for fancy china. Today’s wish lists can set up your living room, bedrooms and bathrooms for a lifetime of wedded bliss, as well.
THE KEYWORD IS LIFETIME
Use your registry to upgrade what you had when you were single, but also think about what you might need down the road. Your future babies and Thanksgiving guests will thank you.
And don't fret. We know it's overwhelming. But you don't have to limit yourself to one location. Think about the room and its function, take a walk through a few of your favorite stores, and then set up different registries to ensure that you find the items you love. To get your creative juices flowing, we took a stroll through the six signature home stores at Gulfstream Park and put together some of our favorite foodie finds as the first in a series of wish lists to help you create your ideal registry.
