Wedding Registries

Since six of our closest couple friends have gotten engaged in the last 10 months, we have heard a lot about weddings. I feel well briefed on possible venues all across Canada, the benefits of a brunch wedding over a dinner, and where the best dress store in each major city is. Today we are talking about one of the less- discussed subjects, the registry. Personally, I think you need one, but I am not here to make that case. It is now quite common for couples to live together before marriage so I have compiled a list of registry items for the bride and groom to be who already live together (and likely have most of the necessities).

  1. At Sears you can also register for travel. William Ashley is also great in Toronto. They give you two champagne flutes, champagne travels, and free parking passes in the Manulife Center.

    1. Really? Those are amazing tips! The parking is a great incentive, but you know me, I love the idea of registering for travel! Very cool! Cant wait to find out where you registered
