On or Off the Registry?
It’s wedding season and I’ve had quite a few engagement parties, bridal showers and weddings to go to this summer. With these parties comes gifts. I always check the couples registry lists and see if there’s anything I’d like to purchase. But then there are times I go “off the registry” and buy the couple something unique that they might not expect.
Sometimes I get them a gift certificate to their favorite place to eat and write a note saying to enjoy each other amongst all the planning. Other times I have given gift cards for spa services so they can relax before the wedding.
Another idea I like is personalized champagne flutes or personalized wine glasses. Gifting this with a bottle of champagne or wine has been my favorite engagement party gift. The couple can use this for their actual wedding as well and in their home.
When you’re purchasing a gift for a wedding, do you always follow the registry? Or do you have a fun gift idea? Let us know in the comments. I would love to hear from you!
