Should I Have a Bridal Registry If I’m Planning an Expensive Destination Wedding?

One bride is planning her wedding in Paris — an already-costly affair. Should her pricey destination wedding affect the cost of the items on her registry?

(page 2 of 2)

The Wedding Guru says: In a word, yes — it’s okay to have a registry. Your gift registry is not only for the guests attending the wedding, but also for those who won’t be traveling to Paris. If you’re that concerned, you may want to limit the number of pricey items on your registry. (Usually, the wider the price range, the better. Keep in mind that several guests might chip in to buy one expensive gift — you’ll have them covered if your registry offers pricier items.)

Some brides tell their guests that they consider their presence equivalent to a gift — and do not expect anything else. With the advent of today’s social media and technology, getting information out to a large number of people is much easier than it ever was before.
