Gift Registry:

Utilizing a gift registry will help you keep track of your wedding gifts. It will also provide benefits to both you and your guests. By using a registry, gift givers can be assured that their money is being spent on something you want or need. Knowing what you exactly need or want will save your guests time and money when shopping for your gift. It will be helpful when you are trying to complete your china, silver, and crystal service as your registry will specify your pattern and
what pieces you still need. In addition, it helps to prevent duplicates and helps to avoid exchanges.

You should open a gift registry 6 to 9 months before your wedding to allow guests time to use your registry and make their purchases. Don’t register too early as some of your selections may go out of stock or may be discontinued.

You will first need to determine what items you need or want for starting or adding to your household. Also, determine what type of entertaining you may be doing and determine the colors you want. Look through magazines or window shop to gain some ideas. Using a checklist can help you make these decisions and can help keep you organized.


You want to make sure your wedding party, out-of-town guests and most of all the groom, arrive at the ceremony and reception on time. It’s the bride’s responsibility to supply transportation or at least provide for it.

You will need to determine how many people need transportation, where they need to be picked up and where they need to be taken to.

Depending on your budget, you may consider renting limousines: for taking you and your father to the church, maybe taking the entire wedding party, taking you and your groom to the reception, and for your final departure. A nice touch for the groom’s parents who live out-of-town is to send a car for them.


Limousine service is available in most cities and can be found by looking in the local yellow pages. Call 6 to 12 months before the ceremony to compare prices and shop around to see which source will provide  you with what you really want at the least rate.
