Registries are an important part of any couple’s wedding. Your registry, like your wedding ceremony and reception, should be reflective of who you are as a couple, but COVID-19 tends to make anything wedding planning-related seem more difficult. Ultimately, having a registry isn’t required, but it’s a great way for your family and friends to show you that they love you and support your new life milestone. And, as we know, support is more valuable than ever these days. 
 
Wedding registry items for the home: 
 
-Workout equipment: Since a lot of people are working from home, not everyone can get out of the house like they used to. Workout equipment is a great addition to your registry because you can use it from the comfort of your home, and still get that good sweat in. (Did someone say Peloton?)
 
-Subscription services: In case you weren’t already aware, subscriptions usually make up a fair chunk of expenses for most households nowadays. Something like a year-long Netflix subscription, or a music streaming service, like Spotify would help fund any entertainment needs for the home. Or even a meal service like Hello Fresh or a wine subscription would be a great way to let your guests support you as a newlywed couple. And, this way, no one has to go out in public, and the entire transaction is contactless on both ends.
 
-Register online: Using websites where people can purchase registry items online that can be delivered to your house is a great way to have your guests give you a gift. Examples of sites like this include Bloomingdales , Macy’s or Williams Sonoma.

  
Other items for the happy couple:
 
-Donation: Consider having a registry item that is a donation to something that involves bigger funds. An example: honeymoon, first house fund. This way people can donate money to you, and it's completely hands-free for all involved. And, you get a little extra money toward whatever you’re saving up for. 
 
-Shop local: Try adding items from local stores to support small businesses and restaurants since small businesses across the nation have been struggling at increasing amounts in the past year. Not only are you supporting local families and making a difference in your community – you’re also getting a nice gift for your new home.
 
-Ask for a COVID-19 care basket: Newlyweds could request a “COVID couple” basket. Think a raffle basket, but it includes hand sanitizer, an air purifier, masks, vitamins, & other COVID-fighting items. Not only is this gift slightly comedic and cute, but it also allows any of your creative guests to make something fun and useful.
 
Whatever you do, don't stress. 
 
Planning a wedding during COVID doesn't have to be all stressful. Although parts of it can be frustrating, creating your registry is one of the things that can be really fun for you and your partner. With our helpful tips, you can make sure you're getting everything you want on your registry and keeping your guests safe.
