Wedding registries have drastically changed over the past few decades. With modern dating and living arrangements, couples no longer look to a wedding registry to fill their living spaces with household items. More and more couples are registering for "out-of-the-box" items, such as honeymoon experiences, charitable donations, and even straight-up cash. Below check out the 7 items we feel the modern Texas bride should definitely have on her registry list.
Instead of registering for towels or another blender you don't need, you can register for your favorite bottles of wine and spirits through ThirstyNest! Use your wedding as an opportunity to build your dream home bar that you'll use to entertain family and guests for years to come. We also love the idea of registering for a few special bottles of red or champagne to save for your future anniversaries together.
2. Your Honeymoon
Ask your guests for donations to your honeymoon fund instead of traditional gifts! Yes, your dream honeymoon IS within reach, whether you're headed to the Caribbean or an amazing European destination. We love HoneyFund--you can even register for cash!
Since so many couples nowadays already have the home goods and items on traditional registries, we love the idea of registering for donations to charity instead! We love The Good Beginning--you can choose your favorite charities to donate to, or add your own!
4. Texas-made Liquor
We all know that Texas is home to some of the best distilleries and liquor brands in the country, so any Texas bride's registry wouldn't be complete without a few of their favorite bottles! Tito's, anyone?
The perfect gift for the couple that already has everything. Some galleries will let you register for artwork through them, or you can always register for prints and wall hangings from your favorite home decor sites. Your new art will add personality to your new home together, and will always remind you of your love for art and for each other!
7. Outdoor furniture
Backyard outdoor entertaining is practically a must during the Texas summers, so add some key outdoor furniture pieces to your wedding registry! A fire pit, next-level grill, and table & chairs set will get so much use post-wedding!
