A wedding registry helps guests get you what you really need instead of three identical toasters. You can also opt for less tangible, but equally important gifts.
If you’re looking to save money on your wedding, you can ask guests to contribute to the budget instead of giving presents. Online crowd-funding can digitize the process so there’s no cash or checks to keep track of. You can also ask them to give the gift of their time by helping with decorating, cooking, scheduling vendors, and all the other million details involved in planning a wedding.
Still short on helping hands? You can also ask guests to cover some of the services needed for the wedding, such as landscaping help for a backyard wedding, event setup, and cleanup services. Guests can even book these services for you right from their mobile phones.
