Wedding registry is a type of service use by engaged couples to tell invited guests of their gift preferences. The service is traditionally provided by retail stores for couples to register a list of desired items. Guests are then invited to the store to view the list and purchase these items as gifts. When an item is purchased, the service crossed out the item from the list to prevent other guests from purchasing the same item twice. This helps couples to avoid the receipt of duplicate gifts and also a best way to solicit gifts that are favorable.
Wedding registry is already proving popular, especially among the younger couples. In fact, according to a survey conducted with wedding planners, it has become the norm, with 1 in 3 couples reported to have used a registry for their wedding.
These days, most couples and their guests prefer online wedding registry because of the convenience it provides, with it, all the registering and gifting works can be done in the comfort of their home without store visit. This is particularly useful when guests don’t live nearby to the store.
Other perk that online registry may offer is the cash registry service. Cash registry is a type of registry known as online wishing well that helps couples to accept cash gifts online to use towards honeymoon, experience and etc.
