As we reach this new digital age, the concept surrounding wedding registries has changed for the better. Here are three great reasons why couples really benefit from signing up for a wedding cash gift registry.
When More Stuff Is Not What You Need
Without an online wedding registry, couples may find themselves receiving gifts from selected stores that they don’t want or need. Rather than dealing with the hassle of returning items in exchange for store credit, a wedding cash gift registry allows guests to contribute towards a variety of gifts.
An online cash registry allows couples to use money towards things beyond that kitchen appliance or television set. Friends and family will be able to contribute towards honeymoon activities or a down payment on a car or house; pretty much anything not listed in online stores.
You’re Never Stuck With Any Particular Gift
Couples that find themselves tired of the latest trends and have already placed a trendy gift on a registry list will be able to use that cash for something else. For example, high thread count bed linens were attractive for their softness but ultimately rejected by consumers because the cloth didn’t allow the body to breathe easily and caused many couples an uncomfortable night’s sleep. If a couple had heard about that issue and already added high thread count linens to their gift registry, they can easily use the cash later for something they really want.
Reinventing The Cash Gift
The cash gift has had a blemished history of feeling impersonal. Although it might be a break from tradition, it is common for the guest to want to give more meaningful gifts. An online wedding registry allows each guest to see what they are contributing towards. Whether they’re helping out with a newly renovated kitchen or a funding an exciting honeymoon excursion, guests will feel happy knowing they have contributed towards something desirable instead of guessing what the couple needs.
With a wedding cash gift registry you can remove the awkwardness of asking for cash while still using the money in any way you want. Wed&Wish provides guests a wish list without couples being restricted in what they can ask for. Check out an example wish list here.
