Happy Wedding Wednesday! This week is flying by isn’t it?!
Registrering for a wedding can be a lot of work considering how much time and thought you and your fiancé put into choosing the items. As I was adding a bed skirt to ours yesterday I contemplated adding the plain one that was a few dollars less, only because it was a few dollars less, and then realized – this is the bed skirt we’re going to have for a really long time! We’re married adults, it’s OK to choose the one we want!
Even after your wedding you can add and purchase items for usually up to 6 months depending on the store and they almost always provide a registry completion discount if your buying the leftover items yourself (hence my bed skirt contemplation). If you make major life changes after your wedding, like move into a new home, you may wait to add some items until you realize what you really need (all of the sudden have 2 bathrooms? You need more sheets, towels, shower curtain, bath mat, accessories, etc!).
One major thing to remember to update after your wedding – your shipping address! We had everything shipped to my mother-in-law because we stayed with her most of the summer after our wedding but now that we’ve moved it’ll be much easier for us to have items shipped to us.
Don’t forget to let your guests know you moved too! A lot of people prefer to send wedding gifts after your wedding, which you may be very thankful for in the long run because moving nicely packed gifts takes up a lot of space! Consider sending out a change of address card to announce your new digs or a wedding thank you with a photo and your new address! Need help designing them? Let us do it! This is a sweet extension of your wedding stationery and not one to be missed!
