5 Unique Registry Ideas

These days more and more couples are moving and living together before their wedding dates – this means they have all those basic pots and pans that a traditional wedding registry is designed to help provide. Nowadays, registries act more like a collective envelope to gather the guests´ “gifts,” but it´s still a little awkward to ask your guests for money instead of say, another set of dishes. That´s why a new trend in wedding gift registries has appeared: married-couples-to-be opt to direct the cash they receive towards things that would be more useful to the couple in this day and age. Sites like Zankyou help these couples find alternative ways to invest the money that their guests give them – think of it like crowd funding tailored to personally fit you. Here are their top five suggestions on how best to re-invest your wedding gifts your way.

NizucDream Honeymoon Location Nizuc Resort & Spa in Punta Nizuc Mexico

 1.  Fund Your Dream Honeymoon

Have you been dreaming about some escaping to some exotic locale for your honeymoon, but can´t afford to after the wedding costs? Well, with cash gift list services like Zankyou, your guests can help you fund that dream honeymoon. You can customize the registry to include even the very smallest of details: list a romantic meal in Paris, a visit to Disney World or snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. You can also list different stages of a world tour and allow your guests to fund your exploration of Europe, Asia, South America, or Africa. The world is your oyster!

2. Fund Your Dream Car

The bride and groom exit the church under a shower of rice and petals, lovingly kiss their friends and family farewell and then hop into a beautiful car tagged “Just Married” and drive off with a trail of cans dragging behind. Usually, those cars are rented, but what if you could drive away in your dream set of wheels completely funded by the guests who just showered you with rice and confetti? Beats those monogrammed guest toilette towels, don´t you think?

3.  Fund Home Improvements

Let´s face it, a house is never finished – there´s always some type of home improvement that nags at our conscience. The couch has seen better days, the TV could always be bigger or perhaps you´ve always wanted a home theater, maybe your kitchen needs to be updated, or your house re-painted, the yard would look so much better with a gazebo or just some landscaping – and the list goes on. You may not need an extra Panini grill, but cash contributions from your guests that will allow you to shape up your home exactly as you want are a great modern twist on the traditional wedding registry.

4.   Fund Your Future

Have you had a student loan or a mortgage hanging over your head? It´s hard to imagine a future when you feel as though you’re already financially chained, but here your guests can help you, too – a cash gift can help relieve some of that burden and get you closer to financial freedom. If you´re looking to the future perhaps you´re hoping to save a little extra money to help with the down payment on a dream home, or to help secure a college fund for your future children. Whatever it may be, we guarantee your guests will feel all the more happy knowing they´ve given you a gift that keeps giving.

Brides Against Breast CancerWedding Salon’s choice for funding a good cause – Brides Against Breast Cancer

5.     Fund A Good Cause

Gifts are awesome. Who doesn´t like receiving gifts? It´s very easy to get carried away with gifts especially when you´re getting exactly what you want; however, are those things you want necessarily things you need? Many couples are opting for another wonderful option, which is to pay it forward and offer guests the option to donate to a charity and to give to those who are truly in need.

 What do you think of these unique ideas from Zankyou for your own registry? ZankYou is an amazing resource if you like the idea of a non-traditional registry!
