Weddings are a part of every Indian’s dream. There is always the band baaja baarat, extravagant food and much more. Humans spend a lot of money on this big fat celebration. What they don’t understand is that it also amounts to a lot of wastage in the world. Food amounts to 50% of the wastage. Wedding gifts also form a big chunk of the wastage. This wastage is formed by wasteful gifts that the couple will not use. It also includes bouquets because of how many flowers can a person really carry back home after the wedding? Which is why it is advised that a couple should create a wedding registry for their big day.
A wedding registry is basically a list that couples create. This list is filled with gifts that a couple might want for their wedding. Most couples never use the crockery, glassware, photo frames, lamps and casseroles that their guests give them. Which is why a wedding registry is the best way to let guests know of their choices so that they can buy them just that. This way the problem of repetition of gifts is also eliminated.
If you’re wondering what to put on that list, here’s a quick list of must-have/essentials on your wedding registry.
Always start with these because even if there is something you might have missed out on the list you can always go and buy it with the gift card.
