Shower Advice: Tips to Using the Registry
This week I am touching on all things related to bridal showers. This summer I have several showers and I am going to use them as practice for my own which will not take place until next summer. I will share some secrets that help the day run smooth, and also provide advice for you girls that have yet to attend a shower. Today, I begin with my tips to using the registry.
When I first started attending wedding showers I was so excited to watch my friends open up the gift I carefully selected off her registry. However, I slowly realized she usually knew exactly what she was opening. Of course she already picked it out, that is not what I am saying, I mean she actually already knew the exact gift I bought her. On many of these websites the bride has the ability to not only see which items have been purchased, but she can see who exactly bought them. This aggravates me to my core! We spend so much money and time wrapping presents (which most of the time the bride doesn't unwrap herself) and buy her exactly what she wants, at least let us surprise her with what we choose!
Okay, so now let's say the bride abides by this simple request, my next tip is how to select a gift off the registry.
The moral of the story is everyone should be happy. If you follow these few tips I think both the bride and the bridesmaid will be please with the registry results!
