Some couples feel uneasy about using a gift registry, but it can make things easier for your guests as it's then clear to them what items you need and want rather than them having to guess at what you might need - and hoping no one else buys the same thing. You can always make it clear that although you have a gift registry, it's not mandatory for your guests to use it.
You may set up more than one gift registry, thereby giving your guests a large range of items and prices to select from.
Guests may contribute towards a large gift such as a flat screen television or put the money towards your honeymoon.
Many gift registry services will provide you with gift registry cards that can be sent along with your wedding invitation but you may prefer for your Bridesmaids or Mum to spread the word about where you have registered.
