How To Register Without A Fight
So let me get this straight…..couples actually fight while picking out presents for other people to gift them?
Yes, it sounds totally insane but unfortunately the stress of wedding planning boils over and it happens. Robby and I actually had a blast creating our registry on Zola – ok fine, we had a hiccup here and there over a BBQ set but I’ll save that story for another day ;) To make sure that you and yours get through the registry process without wanting to kill one another here are some pointers to take into consideration.
4 Tips On How To Register Without A Fight
If you two find yourself on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to décor aesthetic; finding a middle ground is key before registering. Registering for future items as Mr. and Mrs. should be a fun experience that isn’t trumped because he likes a modern look and you are a die-hard vintage fan. The good news is that Zola offers any and every style your heart could desire. Work together on meeting in the middle with the common areas and then he can register for a particular item for his man cave and you can register for that perfect piece for your home office. It’s all about compromise!!
While one of you would empty your pockets for the perfect thread count, the other may spend their last penny on a kitchen appliance. Differences like this can be common so before you add items to your registry it’s crucial to make sure you both are on the same page in regards to price point. Ask yourself what are you, as a couple, comfortable with suggesting your guest to spend on a gift? One of the cool things about Zola is that within the registry they offer a price section so those purchasing an item can quickly decipher which price point they are willing to spend. They also offer group gifting so several of your friends can contribute whatever they want to that big-ticket item of your dreams. The most important thing to remember is that regardless of the price tag each and every gift is purchased with love.
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and chat about what you really need to register for. Is your goal to stock up on brand new kitchen items or do you have your eyes on a new bed set? Whatever you two agree on, Zola offers 3 starter guides that make it incredibly easy to ensure you have your entire registry basis covered. Before publishing your registry, I highly recommend reviewing the Starter Collection, Registry Checklist and the Registries We Love! The guides not only make sure you dot your I’s and cross your T’s but they also lend as a source of major inspo!
Don’t let a silly argument take away the good times that you two can have when registering for items that you will have for years to come! Also, take a moment to think outside the box and take advantage of registering for experiences through Zola that you two can look forward to doing together as a married couple – whether that’s cooking together or exploring a new city!
