5 Unique Wedding Registry Items for Modern Couples

No comments:

Wedding planning starts from the moment you and your fiance get engaged. You have a lot to decide and organize from selecting the venue to finding the perfect wedding dress. And don't forget about your wedding gift registry. If you need some help getting started, consider these five modern gift inspirations:

Swap the Coffee Maker for a Keurig

Kitchen appliances have been a long-time staple for wedding registries. However, many of these old school appliances have been replaced by newer, more efficient models. The coffee maker, for example, has been replaced by a new state-of-the-art brewing system. Keurig brewing systems are more efficient and easy to operate. Plus, you don’t have to make a big pot of coffee each morning or worry about burning it. Keurig systems brew single servings, so you’re wasting less and the brew time is faster than standard drip coffee makers. Say goodbye to messy coffee filters and hello to K-cups.

Ask Your Guests to Give to Charity

If you and your fiance have lived together for awhile and seem to have everything you need, do something non-traditional and ask your guests to donate to your favorite charity. The I Do Foundation lets engaged couples raise money and awareness for their favorite charities. Simply register your wedding with the I Do Foundation, select your charity and add your guests. Then, guests can donate to the charity of your choice online, in your name. Thanking guests is easy, too because The I Do Foundation keeps track of which guests donate to specific charities.

Trade Boring China for Hot Plates

Add just a touch of tradition to your modern registry with a set of dishes that wow. Instead of boring white styles, opt for a pop of color like red or orange. Or, consider a porcelain set that’s illustrated by designer Julia Rothman. The black and white graphics make for a modern and contemporary look. Crate and Barrel offers the full collection, which includes everything from saucers and salad bowls to dinner plates and platters.

Something for Him

You can’t forget about the groom when making your registry. Consider adding a barbecue grill to the registry for your husband-to-be. Having a grill in the backyard will give you the opportunity to host summertime parties and cookouts. And, you and your hubby can creatively thank the gift-giver by having them over for a delicious grilled meal.
