Bridal Registry: What to Buy for the Couple Who Has Everything
Some bridal registry suggestions for the couple who has everything
(page 1 of 2)
Today’s question deals with wedding registries and gifts for couples who have been living together before their wedding. First, I thought I’d share some interesting facts for you to ponder:
In 2010, 1.5 million engaged couples (or 88% of all couples with pending nuptials) set up a registry, according to The Knot Market Intelligence annual wedding registry survey. According to research by the University of Denver, more than 70% of couples getting married live together before the wedding. And according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median marriage age in 2010 was 28.2 for men and 26.1 for women. In the 1960s, it was 22.8 for men and 20.3 for women. Compared to their parents’ generation, of the 30% of currently engaged couples who are not living together, each has at least six years to accumulate pretty much everything they need. Phew!
