LOOKING TO REGISTER? LET EMMA ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS ON MODERN DAY
REGISTRY’S FOR YOU!
Your wedding registry is the time to think about all the things you and your future husband will need
once you say “I Do.” But registering isn’t as easy as just scanning a product at the store.
Take our quiz to see if you’re registry ready.
1. We really want cash. Is it rude to ask guests for money?
• Yes, it’s not polite. We should be grateful for any gifts we receive.
• No, money is practical and will help us set up our married life.
Answer: Yes. Many guests will give you cash or gift cards, whether or not you ask for
it. Still it’s not the best etiquette to express your desire for money. A better solution?
Register on a site like MyRegistry.com, which allows you to set up a “cash gift fund,”
which you can earmark for specific purposes like a “house fund” or “paying off our
2. You should only register for practical items like pots and pans or bed sheets.
• Yes, you can’t go wrong if you sign up for household basics.
• No, many couples are already established homeowners or live together, which
means you might not need new tablecloths or a coffee pot.
Answer: No. It’s OK to register for whatever you want and will use. Love tennis?
Register for new rackets. Want to take ballroom dance lessons? Start a fund for a few
sessions at a dance studio. Your registry is yours so have fun creating a wish list that
suits you and your groom.
3. You should register for things in different price points.
• Yes, we’ll be able to use inexpensive things, like towels and kitchen tools, as well
as pricey things like luggage and electronics.
• No, it’s too much work and not realistic. Who’s really going to buy that $300
juicer I want?
Answer: Yes. Registering for a variety of gifts in different price ranges will give your
guests gift options. Who knows? Your friends may chip in to buy that pricey juicer.
