While many couples register at gift stores, other creative options for wedding registries can be both fun and useful for couples; check out some unique ideas below.

5 creative wedding registry ideas for soon-to-be newlyweds

1. Honeymoon fund registry

Why not let your guests help you out with planning your honeymoon?

  • You can register online for your honeymoon fund, then share the site with wedding invitees.
  • You can be specific about where you want to go and how much money you need, or you can plan the trip based on how much you receive.

2. Wine registry

This is a great idea for any wine lover.

  • Sign up online and create a registry of all your favourite wines.
  • Share the list with your guests so that you receive the wine as gifts and start to build your wine collection.

3. Charity registry

A charity registry allows couples to list charities that mean something to them.

  • Invitees to the wedding can go to the site and view the chosen charities.
  • This is a great way for couples to make an impact with their wedding rather than simply receiving gifts.

4. Online gift registry

If you want to register for more practical gifts, consider an online registry.

  • Guests can contribute to anything from a nice dinner out to home renovations.
  • Not only will you begin to save money for the big purchases in your future, but your guests will love that they're helping you build your new life together and not gifting you something that might never be used.

5. Lifestyle registry

Rather than going to a store and pick out items, you can make a list of things you want to create the lifestyle you would like to live.

  • For example, some couples might want to join a community supported agriculture (CSA) to get fresh vegetables weekly, while others would like to belong to a wine-of-the-month club.
  • Couples can create a list with links to send to friends and family, who then purchase the desired items. This is one of the best ways to ensure you get exactly what you want for your wedding.
