I’m not a big fan of gift registers for many reasons .
Whilst I understand their function I was brought up to believe a gift is given from the heart and so you should be great full for what you recieve.
I also feel it rude to demand a particular gift and quite uncomfortable for those who can’t afford items on your list.
As for the tradition of asking for cash ….that just makes me cringe.
Whilst planning our wedding goodies I happened to find some fantastic ideas to gift couples that I thought I’d share with you for if you like me and prefer to just ignore the registery and buy a gift to give.
Gift the couple a gift to match each sense.for example sound …a favourite cd, sight…a photo of them in a cute frame, smell …a Reed diffuser for their room, taste …a box of chocolates and touch …a fluffy throw for the bed.
