Step 1: Check out reviews Visit an online wedding forum to get feedback from brides on their preferred stores. Look for stores that have customer-friendly return policies and easy-to-use online registries. Step 2: Formulate a plan Consider what types of items you need before visiting stores to start your registries. This will save time and ensure that you create a balanced selection of goods you really want. Step 3: Narrow the field Select the stores after checking user feedback and considering what items you need. Two to three stores is typical. Tip Choose at least one national chain store that's easy for guests to visit and that offers traditional gifts. Step 4: Get the timing right Create your registry 3 to 6 months before the wedding, giving people plenty of time to shop. Step 5: Build your list Select various items that you feel you need or would enjoy using. Pick out two or three items per guest to give people choices. Step 6: Vary gift prices Include gifts that range in price from very inexpensive to bigger-ticket items. Tip Consider putting together a registry for your honeymoon, home down payment, or a charity if you feel you don't need any household items. Step 7: Spread the word Spread the word discreetly on where you're registered. Mention it to close family and friends so they can help get the word out. Don't mention registries in your invitations. Did You Know? On average, there are about 2.2 million weddings every year in the U.S.
