Wedding Registries can be as conventional or unconventional as you want. This is your opportunity to let your guests know the things you want most as a newly wed couple. It is perfectly acceptable to start your registry as soon as you become engaged, that way your guests can start contributing at pre-wedding celebrations like engagement parties, congratulatory brunches, bridal showers, etc. Below are a few different registries to help you chose which is right for you.
Conventional Wedding Registries: Crate &Barrel, Bed Bath & Beyond, William Sonoma, Pottery Barn, etc.
These registry is perfect for those starting with nothing. Remember to register for more than you need in all different price ranges. This gives guests the option to choose what they would like to give, and not be pressured to pick the last item on the list. Make a day of it, have some fun, and register for everything and anything that you can imagine in your new home.
Unconventional wedding registry: honeyfund, a honeymoon registry.

This allows couples to plan their dream honeymoon without all the hassle. The site is very user friendly, and lets your guest know they are contributing to a wonderful memory that will be with you forever.
Unconventional Wedding Registry: Hatch my House, buying a home registry.
