10 Wedding Gifts You\'re Not Registering For, But Should
NEW YORK --(MainStreet)-- The wedding registry is so guilty. Sometimes what they need is lost somewhere behind the coffee machine, a free opportunity for couples to get what they want. The wedding site TheKnot, part of the XOXO Web properties Group, conducted a registration study last year and identified this. 5 million couples register to receive gifts each year. Nearly 70% of couples really enjoyed receiving gifts from their registry, and their guests were very much willing to stick to the list in exchange for free food. Last year, about 54% of wedding gifts came from the couple\'s registry. Getting things is the easy part. Setting up a registry is part of wedding planning, and everyone feels like they can participate. More than 80% of couples say families have some influence in helping them pick gifts, while less than 80% rely on the Internet to build a gift list. It could be a different story if more than 44% of fiances are involved in picking registry projects, however, never post couples online investigating \"what do I want for this holiday? The crowd bag suddenly appeared in their registration center. When 38% of couples asked their mothers to pick wedding gifts for them, another 20% left their shopping opportunities to their friends, there is a good chance that something people need or want to get married will be left out of the mess. The couple will be told to make sure there are a lot of changes in the price of their items, which is the idea of 72% of couples deciding how many gifts to put in the registry. They will be informed to consider the number of guests they invite (as 50% did) Or just shut up and listen to your mom (as 30% did). About 65% consider what it takes to equip their house, but it\'s just another sound in the noise cloud, whiter than most wedding dresses. Entering jambalaya has a big impact on where a couple goes to shop. When 91% of couples say they choose a place based on the breadth and diversity of their choices, that\'s the bed, bath and its \"seen on TV\" product shelves became the most popular registered destination in the United States, with 61% of respondents filling out their list on the main aisle of the square. Who\'s No. 2? That\'s discount. Chic Target has 51% registered couples, followed by 39% macy, 26% Crate & Barrel and 11% Kohl. Once the ring is on, people may spend quite a bit of time shopping places-- Amazon, Dillard and Home Depot- Check in between 6% and 3%. It\'s not that simple. In the months before the wedding, the couple saw a blender, a blender, and a coffee machine ( 44% considered the most important project) As well as baking pans, color pans, Dutch ovens (37%). Few (11%) Consider that at some point after their honeymoon they may have to vacuum the carpet. It seems that only 16% of people think that they will have to repair or install something during their happy marriage, because the power tools are on top of movies, books, games and personal care items in the bakeware-led registry list ( 91% of all registries) Kitchen appliances (90%) Kitchen Accessories (87%). With the help of the team of wedding experts, including the wedding editor Kim Forrest and Sharon Naylor, who wrote more than 35 wedding books, including the ultimate wedding Registration Manual (Citadel, 2005) We have come up with 10 items that most couples have not registered, but it should probably be: cleaning supplies couples will want to clean up the air before they get married, we don\'t mean to tell what happened at Senor Frogs in senior year. Items like bathroom accessories, irons and vacuum cleaners didn\'t get couples excited about filling out the register, but they were more convenient than the double boiler they signed up for, and if any, they would obviously use it once. If they live in a house with pets, there is enough fur on their carpet and carpet to be declared another mammal The electric vacuum or air purifier in each room will greatly help to calm down the post- Cough during your honeymoon and ask guests not to beg from benajo. \"An anti- \"The Allergen vacuum cleaner is a smart choice for the bridal registry because today\'s new model is very good at removing pollen, dust and other allergens from carpets, sofas and curtains,\" Allergen lor said . \". \"For newlyweds, no matter how severe their own allergies are, breathing easily is a top priority. \"Organizing the item, a trash can on a track that slides out of the sink, is not entirely a compelling wedding item, but the couple who got it should be grateful. Why? Because they use it every day. - For their milkshake makers, this is beyond what can be said --- Because it moved their home one step from the wall. This is the landfill before they got married. The day a couple get together is the day when things start to merge big. You have yours, they have theirs, and all of a sudden it has to be adapted to a place that has not been able to accommodate one of you until recently. Once you get rid of all the repetition, dollar- Store your original items and pieces of your past life, and now look like something stolen from an old man\'s wine cabinet, as well as a DVD review of the last decade in a romantic comedy, you have finally found a perfect balance that balances the existence of a couple. Then, when everything found its place, the wedding came and poured something completely different in the value of life on their legs. Unless the couple has all the space they need for the rest of their lives to attend the wedding, they need something from now on to take them to a bigger place. \"For newlyweds, organization is a hot topic, regardless of whether they live together before marriage,\" said Naylor . \". \"We\'re all mouth-watering about the great magazines that show the super-magazine feature. Organized kitchen, so be sure to add those great metal racks to your storage room, upgraded spice racks and fabric storage boxes at the top of the wardrobe, and sealed plastic storage containers in the basement. Don\'t load a lot of cartons. . . Everything is organized in a matching bin, which gives a great sense of order at home. \"Unless a couple announce their new love next to the museum and keep everything vulnerable under the laser tripwire and glass, it breaks things. Think about it: if a couple is just getting married, they will most likely move at some point in the future. This means that glassware and exquisite Chinese patterns will take some time to be dragged up stairs or loaded into trucks by movers. If all of these items survive the move, there are still concerns about dinner, parties and regular use and cleaning. If there is a child appearing in the photo at any time, this will require at least one place in the child\'s life to shoot one for the team. \"Sign up to more China than you think,\" Forrest said . \". \"The Chinese model is often stopped and the dishes are broken, so if you have a big family, register 8 to 12 sets, and more --- It may seem a lot, but it is worth it. \"Couples in bed will spend most of their marriage in bed, so it can be comfortable. Reply to \"bow qika Wow\" everything you want, but on a cold night everyone has had a hard day, the comfort of a couple\'s blankets and sheets is much more important than anything that happens below them. \"Brides and grooms often forget to check in every season, so if you live on a cold night, it\'s a great place, and the comfortable throw blanket is perfect to snuggle up when watching a movie, \"said Naylor. \"Register sheets for all seasons, such as lightweight jersey sheets for the summer season and heavier fleece sheets for the winter season. \"Don\'t forget the pillows. They are an item that you won\'t struggle for more at night and can be customized to suit the tastes on both sides of the bed. A couple may have to compromise on the flannel sheets, but if one prefers a down jacket and the other prefers the Tempurpedic, everyone can rest peacefully at the end of the day. 9 out of 10 couples registered to purchase kitchen appliances and no one forgot the toaster, blender and slow cooker. Similarly, nearly half of couples consider these projects to be the most important. However, when it comes to getting a good set of knives, 70% of couples registered for them, but only 13% gave them any priority. The couple should remember that- Anniversary, when they bargain The tomato can\'t be punctured with a knife. \"I like the idea of upgrading to a higher level --quality, chef- Because the cutter will become dull over time, and the dishwasher steam will weaken the handle on the cutter, \"said Naylor. \"You might even want shiny silver knife blocks instead of wooden, in tune with those great countertop kitchen appliances. \"Even something much smaller than an expensive knife will have a huge impact in the kitchen depending on who is cooking. Naylor still cherishes her Juliana Piller, Juliana carrots, zucchini, eggplant and other vegetables that can be cooked healthy without having to come up with a larger device. If you peel off the thin flaky skin on a clove of garlic, which is equivalent to the slow torture of home cooking, then there is a narrow cannoli- Plastic pipes in shape to complete the work with less confusion and deterioration. Even simple things like registering multiple cutting boards can help reduce confusion and confusion while contributing to a healthier marriage. \"The chef cuts vegetables in blue and raw meat in yellow, which is a smart and safe way to cook,\" said Naylor . \". \"But when you\'re ready for a holiday meal or entertainment, you\'ll have a few people cook --- Or just when the bride and groom want to cook together, it\'s easier to eat a plate more. \"Out of the seasonal/holiday gifts for all items listed in the Knot registration survey, only one part is becoming increasingly popular year by year: barbecue and barbecue equipment. Couples who register for outdoor supplies account for 43% of the total, exceeding couples who register for luggage (36%)or fine china (32%). \"The whole calendar is considered when registering,\" Forrest said . \". \"Even if you pick a gift in the winter, you should still register for a barbecue grill and gardening tool --- It will warm up soon. \"Those forward- It seems that couples are also very different in places where people register.

(WSM -Get Report) Only 16% of engagement couples registered for movies, books and games, and only 20% registered for sports or outdoor gear. That said, if guests know that a couple will use these items more than they will launch a set of crystal wine glasses, why not let it happen?

(WSM -Get Report) \"Yes, it\'s perfectly acceptable to register electronic products such as DVD players, cameras and speakers, as well as entertainment items such as board games and DVDs,\" Forrest said . \". \"Don\'t go too far with these types of gifts. . . Only a few carefully selected \"entertainment\" items are registered. \" (WSM -Get Report) Perhaps a honeymoon a decade ago would make the idea a reality, but now 11% of the engaged couples have a honeymoon registry to cover their post-honeymoon expenses. Wedding trip. (WSM -Get Report) There are some websites that allow couples to pay part of their fees for activities such as air tickets, hotel accommodation, car hire and spa services, catering and snorkeling.

These are great for room service, gift shop shopping or dining. \" (WSM -Get Report) Of course, some guests will scoff at the idea. Forrest said it is better to prepare more traditional items for these people, while maintaining the honeymoon registry for those guests who are preparing non-traditional gifts for the couple. (WSM -Get Report) When young, more Internet Savvy guests will fully \"acquire\" the concept of the honeymoon registry, be sure to register the physical, family- \"For those guests who prefer to go to the store to pick a vase or cutlery for you, this is a relevant gift,\" Forrest said . \".

(WSM -Get Report) For couples who are willing to ask the question and test the comfort of their guests, Naylor recommends asking them to put in and pay for the wedding as a gift. Couples can announce on the registration page of their personal wedding website that they welcome gift cards from photographers, videographers, flower designers and beauty salons.

(WSM -Get Report) \"If you are a couple who really have everything, you may consider setting up a registry that allows your guests to donate to a cause that is close and precious to you, Forrest said. \"Some couples ask guests to make charitable donations in lieu of gifts, while others include charitable donations in addition to a more traditional gift registry.
