It’s a great thing actually, to plan and witness a wedding firsthand. That’s why even though wedding planning is stressful at some point (even for a wedding planner by profession, trust us because we know) but once everything ends smoothly, it’s fulfilling. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming but here’s a checklist that you can find handy for the big day but how about after the wedding? This is why a wedding gift registry is important.

A wedding gift registry is a list of gifts the couple have already selected and assigned to their guests. This is great in many ways – it gives you a starter as a couple and altogether avoids the frustration of getting three of the same gift. We put together everything you need for the wedding registry checklist. Though it’s important to have everything figured out and smooth on your big day, it’s not too bad to look beyond and plan what’s in store for the two of you after the wedding.
