Nowadays, I think it’s pretty safe to say that the more popular form of a wedding registry is to set up a Honeymoon Fund or an account where guests can contribute to whatever it is you’d rather have than loads and loads of physical gifts. A friend of mine recently set up her wedding registry to help her and her fiancé save for a house, so there’s a ton of ways you can get creative with it. Joey and I set up a Honeymoon Fund. It was the easiest thing for us and honestly, we’d already lived together for 6 years so there wasn’t much in the home department that we needed or didn’t already have. Since we were doing a Honeymoon Fund for our wedding registry, I thought I was done and had gotten off easy.
That’s around the time my mom asked me to set up a registry for my bridal shower. Her friends had been asking about what to get me and she thought it’d be a good idea to throw something together that gave guests another option other than contributing to our
Honeymoon Fund twice (once for the shower and then another time for our wedding). I honestly had no idea what to even include, but saw the importance of setting something up, so I set up an Amazon registry in addition to asking guests to donate to MONOSAR (Mammoth Mountain Search & Rescue).
Without further ado, here are the items I put on my registry and some added items that we already had, love, and definitely recommend to any future brides out there who are doing a traditional registry! Everything is linked down below!
