Wedding registries are a wonderful way to create a wishlist for your married life, while also guiding your guests in the right direction of items you may want as wedding gifts. Registries can contain a plethora of items from kitchenware and linens to appliances, and electronics. For tech-savvy couples, narrowing down electronics to add to a registry can pose a challenge. However, there’s no need to worry. Here’s everything you need to know followed by the top 10 electronics for your registry.
A few crucial things to keep in mind when making your registry is to get it to your guests well in advance, include items in a variety of price ranges, and involve your partner in creating your registry, so the list reflects both of you.
People tend to plan gifts in advance, so make sure to leave your guests with ample time to shop. We recommend creating your registry before sending out your save the dates and at least two to three weeks before your engagement party or bridal shower.
Varying price points on your registry is imperative, so that all of your guests feel comfortable within their individual budgets. The last thing you and your partner want is to make your registry financially inaccessible for some of your guests. A good rule of thumb is to hit three different price brackets (low price, mid-range, and expensive), and try to fit roughly ⅓ of your items into each category. Generally, you should also try to include plenty of items under $50 and $100.
Finally, creating your registry with your spouse is a great bonding experience. Make a night or two out of it by eating dinner or drinking some wine while putting your list together online. The registering process is meant to be fun, so keep it lighthearted and make sure you and your partner select electronics products that suit you both for this new phase of your lives.
