Wedding Registry Roundup

jwf_5416Mother of the Bride, is it time for your daughter to decide where she and her groom-to-be should register for wedding gifts? This can take a little more time and thought that they might originally think so why not encourage them to do this sooner rather than later? If they put it off and end up pressed for time, something that should be fun could turn into a giant headache and even cause some unhappiness between them.

I’ve featured several wedding registries here on my blog over the past couple of years so today here’s a roundup post to help you find them all more easily. The registries I’ve featured are ones that are a little less common so I’ll list links to the more standard registries websites and then will list links to the posts I’ve written for the others.

Have fun sharing the links with your daughter, MOB. She might discover a registry she hadn’t thought of yet!

Wedding Registry to Consider: Sur La Table!

3384439742_f141ff993a_z

Mother of the Bride, when it comes time to register, your sweet girl might want to consider Sur La Table for one of her registries—especially if she and/or her groom love to cook and spend time in the kitchen. A cooking specialty store like Sur La Table will surely hit the spot for them, right?

The Sur La Table website has all kinds of registry helps: Creating, Finding, and Managing a Registry, Top Registry Gifts, Reasons to Register, Tips and Guides, information on Special Registry Events, and also a Gift Registry Concierge to assist you. You can receive help in the store, by phone, or online.

Sur La Table also offers free gifts for the couple. Some they’ll get just for registering and others they’ll qualify for after items from their registries are purchased. Sounds like a sweet deal to me!

So MOB, if your Mr. & Mrs.-to-be plan to cook up more than passion after they’re married, why not send them over to Sur La Table? They might even thank you by inviting you over for dinner sometime!

Mother of the Bride, is your daughter itching to branch out a bit from the most standard registry choices? If so, encourage her to check out what Crate and Barrel has to offer. Even if you don’t have a Crate and Barrel in your city, she and her sweet guy can register online, and of course, guests can shop online as well.

Crate and Barrel carries a wide range of products—everything from kitchen to bath to furniture to décor to even outdoor items and more. And you, MOB, will even have fun perusing their site!

Here are all the vital links your daughter will need:

The registry page itself has a lot of great info, tips, and suggestions.

Be sure to have her check out the registry benefits page. Among other things, the benefits include a set of Crate and Barrel’s best-selling stemless wine glasses in an embroidered linen bag, bonus gifts from more than 14 brands, and a mobile app.

If the happy couple registers for one of Crate and Barrel’s weekly private registry events, they’ll be eligible for the weekly giveaway drawing as well as the monthly giveaway drawing. They will also be given a goodie bag with free gift. Definitely something to do if at all possible, huh?

MOB, why not share this post with your sweet girl? It might be just the registry she’d love to add to her list of choices!

A Wedding Registry to Consider: Best Buy!

13297719805_d8589614cd_z

Mother of the Bride, when you and your daughter think of wedding registries, I’d be willing to be that Best Buy isn’t the first thing that springs to mind, is it? It’s definitely not one of the old standards where wedding registries are concerned, but it’s definitely one worth considering—especially if the bride and groom would like to include some electronics, home entertainment, or computer products in the mix.

You may not be aware of the wide range of products available at Best Buy. Not only do they have all the items they’re most well-known for that would fall under the electronics and technology umbrella, they also carry large and small appliances, home and personal care products, and also home office items. Check out their website for a full listing of items offered.

Best Buy has a helpful online wedding registry page, and couples can easily update their registries with a hand Best Buy mobile app. Group gifting is also available on gifts priced at $200 or more.

MOB, why not share this Best Buy wedding registry idea and info with your new Mr. & Mrs.-to-be? I think they will likely be very happy that you did!
