[Featured Registry] A Wedding Registry With A Little Character

One of the best parts of my job is catching a glimpse into the creative and diverse gift ideas that couples post on their Wedding Republic wedding registry. Here’s one that I absolutely loved.

Meet Asya and Ron, the creative bride and groom behind this stellar registry. Even at first glance, you can see they’ve included the things that are important to them. Gifts that will have a real impact on their lives rather than (potentially) collecting dust on a shelf for 20 years… crystal punch bowl anyone?

Here’s what I love about Asya and Ron’s Registry:

The Gift List Shows The Kind of Life They Want

Here’s a snapshot of their wedding registry. They have everything from a house down payment, to gym memberships (one for him and one for her) and even a subscription to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. Their wedding registry is reflective of the life they’re creating together, and gives friends and family a glimpse into what’s really important to them. What better way to start married life than with the things that really matter to you?

They Gave Their Guests A Ton of Option

By diversifying their gift list Asya and Ron’s guests are almost guaranteed to find something they’d love to contribute to. Lets delve into the science of giving for a moment. Gift giving is as much about the giver as the receiver. Think back to when you gave a gift. You want the recipient to love it, right? By diversifying their wedding registry, they give guests lots of choice from books for their library to dinner at their favorite restaurant.

The couple has also done a great job at varying the price points. For example, they’ve taken the house down payment and broken it up into affordable puzzle pieces so every guest can find something that’s within their price range.

They Had Fun With The Descriptions

Clever quips, funny phrases or even movie quotes – anything that reflects your personality goes! This just adds to your registry and might even make your friends and family laugh (or gush, or smile… depending on what you’re going for) as they browse your wedding registry.

Rather than submitting to what decades of traditional wedding registries have told them they should have, they’ve chosen to create a wedding registry filled with what they really want. Things that have meaning for them. At the end of the day, only you can (and should) decide what you need to build your life. You be the expert.

Asya and Ron are getting married this weekend, and we’ll be sending them happy thoughts from Wedding Republic HQ.

From the entire WR team… congratulations Asya and Ron!

  3. […] Believe me, staying at Club Land'or, you will not be impressed. The place is pretty run down, but the staff is terrific, so make the most of it. Best way to get there is by cab. It should run you about $30 plus $1 for the toll for the two of you. They are lined up outside the arrivals gate at the airport. Don't forget the tip. The trip takes about 30 minutes. To get back and forth to town from Land'or, the ferry is the way to go. $3pp each way, and they run from 9am to 6pm daily. Local hang out would be Green Parrot Harbourside Grill at Hurricane Hole. (nearby, just ask anyone, they will point the way). Or if you really want to rub elbows with the locals, go over the western bridge (the one with the traffice circle, and under it you'll find it lined with Fish shacks.. Great food, cold beer, dominos, music whatever you like. Not for the faint of heart. This area is called Potters Cay. You can also head to Araway Cay's Fish Fry.. A 1/3 mile walk west of downtown, It's a "village" of locally owned restaurants, daiguari shacks etc with music on weekend evenings. Great local hang out. Real local food – eat downtown on the wharf at lunchtime. The lunch ladies bring their food to the wharf for the workers. They server from the trunks of their cars and one even has a van. Great local food for cheap. Soup of the day, chicken or fish dinners for $10, stewed pork chops, curried goat, Ox tail.. Excellent. You'll think you died and went to heaven. I wouldn't recommend scooters unless you had a death wish. Maybe if you stayed on Paradise Island, but I wouldn't go across the bridge. Bahamian Drivers are the worst I've ever seen. Best to talk to the locals while you there and get a feel for what's going on. BTW.. Junkanoo will take place on Boxing Day. (starting around 2am on the 26th and going thru the nite til the morning).. It's like Carnival. A parade and festivities. It take place downtown on Bay Street. There are bleacher seats available for a price, but most people stand along the streets. Don't miss it. If you decide on ANY tours.. Do the Rose Island Tour that is available thru Club Land'or. It's a wonderful relaxing day on a private island beach. Powered by Yahoo! Answers Joseph asks… Is this normal, help I am a newlywed?
