The Best Places for Wedding Registries by Wendy Dessler
There is nothing more exciting for a Bride and Groom than setting up their wedding registries. This is their chance to show their taste, and to express themselves as a couple. This is also a very thoughtful and considerate way of helping your friends and family provide you with gifts they know you will cherish.
The needs and desires of each couple are different. While some start their union with very little and build their homes together, others begin with a fully furnished home allowing them to receive select items to complement their lives. We have selected the top five places to register. We think you will agree this list will satisfy any couple as they begin their lives together.
Honeyfund is one of the most popular registries in the country. It was created by a couple who wanted to begin their lives as a married couple by going on the honeymoon of their dreams. With Honeyfund, family and friends can donate to the trip or purchase special gifts. For example, the couple may receive the gift of a romantic dinner on the beach, or a relaxing massage while you are in their private paradise. But Honeyfund doesn’t stop there. The Honeyfund website offers traditional gifts, gifts for the first year of married life, and even down payment fund accounts. There is something for everyone and every budget.
Plumfund is a site set up for people to tastefully share their needs, dreams, and desires with people they love. Perhaps the couple has already bought a home, but are in need of home improvements, additions, or furnishings. Perhaps they are paying off debts in order to afford their growing family.
Maybe they would like their gifts to be charitable donations. No matter what the situation is, Plumfund is the perfect platform to show how much you care. By registering with Plumfund, the exact goals are set and everyone is allowed to contribute toward the future of the young family.
