Alternative Wedding Registry Ideas

Photo by Rivets and Roses photographer Thea Volk Modern weddings are shifting when it comes to registering for wedding gifts. We are beginning to see many couples have a guest book signing table with no place for gifts since many are registering online these days. Although having older relatives figure out an online registry leaves them confused, so if you are going to have an online registry make sure it is easy to use! We have researched some of the best alternative online registries to hopefully help you find the perfect one for you and your wedding guests. Deciding where to register online can be tricky, especially if you want to have multiple registries. You first have to figure out what you’re most interested in before deciding which of these online wedding registries will work best for you.
