When my husband and I got married, we registered for all of the traditional stuff; the blender, the crock pot, the china and wine glasses. We figured that we would need all of it...eventually. Our only problem was that we were still living in a small one bedroom apartment, where we barely had enough kitchen counter space to make a sandwich. So we made a plan with my parents, and had all of our gifts shipped and stored at their house until we managed to move into a bigger place. It wasn't until nearly a year later that we were able to open and begin using our wedding gifts. In the end, we were very happy to have all of the items we registered for, but obviously, it wasn't an ideal situation for us.
I imagine that we aren't the only couple in the world who just wasn't ready for a garlic press and food processor when it came time to register. You may be like we were, and you just don't have the need or space for all of the housewares, or maybe you just have bigger priorities. Buying a house to store all of that glassware, for instance. Or maybe you have your sights set on something a bit more immediate, like a dream honeymoon getaway. Whatever your wedding gift desires, I'm pretty sure you will love registering at Wedding Republic.
Wedding Republic is an online registry that allows you to set up a customized wedding registry full of gifts you really want. With Wedding Republic, you can add anything; your house down payment, honeymoon, your favourite wine or charity - or just register for cash! Yes, I know what you're thinking...we can't ask for cash! That's so tacky! Well, Wedding Republic takes away the taboo because it allows you to raise funds for specific items or occasions that are personal to you. Ask your family and friends to contribute to a couples massage on your honeymoon, or even a romantic dinner for two. Rather than just buying stuff, your guests will enjoy contributing to those special moments for the two of you as you begin your new life together.
With Wedding Republic, creating your dream wedding registry is easy. Just add items from a gallery of gift suggestions or add your own gift ideas. Every gift is customizable, so you can add your own price and description, giving it that personal touch your guests will love. With Wedding Republic's signature puzzle piece feature, you can even break apart expensive gifts, say your trip to Italy, into smaller, affordable pieces so guests can each contribute to a portion of the trip (that first class plane ticket, for instance).
