By now, we’re all familiar with the likes of the incredibly addictive Pinterest. If you’ve ever planned, been part of, or dreamed about a wedding, you’ve probably got a board going called “Happily Ever After”, or something equally charming. If you don’t, do it! Pinterest is a fabulous resource for brides-to-be and every procrastinator’s dream.
Dream It, Pin It, Get It
Don’t worry, we’re not about to suggest that you and Prince Charming spend the better half of year one pinning out your marriage anxiety, however, if you can make a Pinterest board full of inspiration for your special day, why can’t you do the same thing for your first year as Mr. and Mrs.? Furthermore, why can’t you make life a little easier on all of your loved ones and guide them through the gift-giving process by transferring the contents of your “Married Life” Board into the new registry you’ve set up with Wed&Wish? This way, instead of spending five Saturdays in a row at Sears returning the blenders, toasters and tableware, you’ll be enjoying tennis lessons, wine tastings, and romantic dinners at all the restaurants you’ve been dying to try out!
Extend Your Wedding Bliss
The best wedding gift registries are the ones that are tailored to the bride and groom. After spending all that time planning for one, big day, you deserve to ride the honeymoon wave for a lot longer than 7 days in the Caribbean. So, do yourselves a favor and take some time together to cross-reference your respective bucket lists, and you’ll be left with very cool wedding registry ideas.
How to Convert a Pinboard to Wedding Gifts
Taking a pin-board of great ideas is easier than you think to transform into amazing gifts. Simply estimate the amount of guests you think will attend and multiply that number by the average gift amount you think they will spend to get your total amount. Then take a look at your pin-board and make some decisions as to which events, gifts or experiences would be fun for all to post about and share. Pick enough gifts to approximately equal that amount you came to in the example above or choose one large gift of the same amount to split up into gift amounts. It’s that easy and registration is free on most registries so try one out today!
