Wedding Wednesday: A guide to our registries

I’ve had lots of family and friends asking my mom what Cason and I want, to which my mom replies, “Well they are registered at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Kohls.”  However, I’ve heard that the response usually goes something like, “Yes, but what do they REALLY want?” So, I thought I would make a quick guide for the guests who want to know what we REALLY want.

A few quick things to give you an idea of us as a couple:

  1. I am the sentimental one.  In ten years, Cason and I will be standing in the kitchen trying to get rid of old things and the conversation will go something like this:
    C: “Jess, this wooden spoon has a crack down the middle.  I will buy you another spoon if we toss this one.”
    J: “Yes, but my aunt so-and-so gave that to us for our WEDDING gift. Can we frame it?  Keep it in a box at least?”
    Moral of the story: I will cherish any and all gifts and attach sentimental value to everything.  However, I am a fan of the personal gifts–the ones that we will use forever and likely not have to toss.
  2. Cason is the memory-maker and story-teller.  He likes to experience life and look back fondly on memories.  So even though including a check in a nice card may seem impersonal, he’s likely to look back on our honeymoon in 5 years and say things like, “Remember how much fun we had zip-lining on our honeymoon?”  And he will be thankful that our family and friends contributed to that experience.
  3. We both like things that are practical and good for everyday use.  And we both love food!  So, organization and kitchen items are always a good fall-back.

For the Sentimental Gift-Giver:

For this type of gift, our Etsy registry is a must-see!

For the Practical Gift-Giver:

Many of these items can be found on our Target and Bed Bath & Beyond registries.

For the Best of Both Worlds:

These are probably some of our favorite gifts on the list, and we will likely use them for years to come!  Check out TargetBed Bath & Beyond, and Kohl’s registries for more details.
