Cash Gifts on a Wedding Registry? The Growing Trend of Asking For What You ACTUALLY Want!

Unique Registries

Guest Post By Nancy Lee, President of MyRegistry.com

So… you’ve lived with your boyfriend for more years than you can count. Naturally, you’ve accumulated “stuff”, lots of “stuff” for your home, for your pets, and for everything else that you do together. But now, with a wedding on the way and everyone asking you about your registry, you find yourself in a dilemma because you really do not want any more “stuff”. This is not to say that there aren’t plenty of things that you would like to have, they just aren’t the typical items found at a department store and easily placed on a gift registry. Or are they?

4 DIY Bridal Shower Gifts We Heart from Pinterest

Corn-hole Wedding Set: The perfect gift to give to a bride right before an outdoor wedding celebration!

 

Confetti Balloon: Okay, so giving money isn’t always ideal. But for the girl on the go this may be your only option. Give cash in a fun and innovative way by filling a giant balloon with helium, confetti, and cash. Have the bride pop it open and she’ll be “showered” with confetti!

 

 

Bridal Spoons: Why not personalize a boring set of wooden cooking spoons by decorating them with a bride and a groom? Perfect for an artsy person ready to take on a DIY challenge!

 

 

Dinner For Two: Did your bride register for a colander? Why not pair it with a few smaller gifts with a similar theme. Try an italian colander bundle! Include a bottle of wine, extra virgin olive oil, handmade pasta, and some delicious sauce to top off the meal!
