Diary of a Bride | Wedding Registries | Melissa Lynn Hunt Photography

Last weekend I finally dragged Carter to the mall to register. I find clicking through a store’s inventory online to be very overwhelming, so I knew that we needed to go and do it, or at least start it, in person. Carter drug his feet the whole morning, but once he had the scanner in his hand it was a whole different story!

Just a wee bit scan-happy!

Here is a great article from Real Simple on the do’s and don’ts of wedding registries. One tip I found very helpful was the one about selecting a range of gifts at different price points. The article suggested registering at one kitchen store, one home goods store, and one department store, and that is exactly what we plan to do. We took care of Belks over the weekend, and are planning on also registering at William Sonoma and Crate and Barrel.

With so many great options for registries it can be hard to narrow it down- take your time and make sure that the stores you ultimately select reflect you all as a couple!
