A wedding gift registry, for the uninitiated, is a way for the couples to let their guests know what they would love as wedding gifts. And yes, it helps the couple receive gifts that they will truly love and use. However, for all those who think it may be rude to ask your guests for gifts, here are all the reasons why a wedding gift registry is the BEST thing you can do for your guests!
1. No stressing about what to get
The biggest point of stress for any guest at a wedding is figuring out what a couple would like for their wedding gift. And a gift registry helps them know what the couple would want, eliminating the guesswork for them.
2. No rushing around getting it
During wedding season, it is not unlikely for any guest to be attending 4-5 weddings. And going shopping for each gift can be a time sink. With a registry, you can place the order in just a few clicks.
3. No boxed gift
There is nothing more annoying than walking into a wedding with a big box, and finding a moment with the couple when you can pass this on to them. With a wedding registry, the gifts get delivered directly to the couple, ensuring no one has to carry a box around.
4. No repeat gifts
Even if one knows what the couple will love, there is no guarantee that someone else might not get the same gift. But in a wedding registry, the minute a gift is bought, it shows purchased, therefore getting rid of the repeat-gifts conundrum.

A couple gets hundreds of gifts at their wedding, and you don’t want yours to get mixed in the lot. However, gift cards getting misplaced are a very real concern. When a couple does a wedding registry, they are sent a complete list of all gifts & messages!
6. Destination weddings!
With destination weddings becoming the new hot trend, it becomes a logistic pain for guests to carry a gift all the way to the destination. With delivery taken care of by the wedding registry service, this problem gets solved easily
7. Travelling from abroad?
For guests traveling from abroad, a wedding gift registry really simplifies the gifting process. There can be cultural differences in the kind of gifts people give, and having a wedding registry makes this easy for those traveling from other countries.
8. Money put to use
Wedding gift budgets can vary dramatically, and often veer towards a higher amount. No guest wants to spend a big chunk of money on a gift that the couple won’t use. Having a ready list of gifts that the couple has chosen ensures the money is well spent.
With guests who have a smaller budget for the wedding gifts, like colleagues or distant associates, it becomes very hard to find a good gift. With a wedding registry, each guest can contribute any amount they like towards any gift, so even a small amount of money has a meaningful impact.
