The evolution of wedding registries has been ongoing for decades. We have found that the more things change, the more they stay the same. While couples used to spend hours selecting crystal and fine China, now they are focused on finding items that show off their personality and add meaning to the home.
Make a statement.
Adding household items to your registry will never go out of style, but couples are now elevating these selections to high-end pieces that spark conversation and stand out from the ordinary. Quality is customary when picking decorations or items to entertain guests, yet the statement is what matters most. Couples want their house to be reflection of their relationship. Items like furniture, art and décor all reflect the couple’s personality. As the saying goes, “a room is a reflection of the people who live there”.
Items for travel.
Following two years of isolation and social distancing, couples are now eager to travel and create memories abroad. Vacation plans are ramping up across the globe as people try to make up for lost time. Luggage accessories, items that create comfortable flights, and even cash donation pages are showing up on wedding registries everywhere as couples are excited to put travel plans into motion.
One of the best ways to ensure a long and happy relationship is by regularly doing things together as a couple. Being gifted a cooking course, dance class, photography session, or couples massage can bond newlyweds in a way that material items never will accomplish. Therefore, experiences are now becoming popular gifts for the bride and groom. Many couples want to keep the romance alive by scheduling frequent date nights. The goal is to continue connecting even after the honeymoon stage has ended.
