As you begin building the wedding registry of your dreams, it's helpful to learn how you can make the most out of your gift registry. In this article, we're going to equip you with everything you need to know to get started.
Why are Wedding Registries Important?
The tradition of giving gifts to the bride and groom has been going on for many centuries. However, it was only in 1924 that a private company helped engaged couples communicate their gift preferences to the wedding guests. Today, this has become an important part of every wedding. Let's dive deeper to understand why wedding registries are so important.
Helps Guests Know What to Buy
It’s understandable to feel a little guilty about asking for gifts but the fact of the matter is that the guests you invite will already be gifting you something. By having a dedicated gift registry, you will make it easier for them to buy something that you will actually want and need.
Moreover, wedding registries are often shared with the people closest to you. It’s shared with the people that love you and want to play a small part in helping you have everything you need to get started with your marriage. So, go ahead and give them the opportunity to have this experience.
Prevents Duplicate Gifts
If you still feel a tiny amount of guilt, just remember this — you help your guests more by having a registry than by not having one. How so? Well, even if you don’t keep a registry, people are still going to give you something or other. But more often than not, you will end up receiving duplicate gifts, which is a waste of your guests’ money.
By creating your wedding registry with LOOMLAN, your guests will be able to track what all items have already been purchased for you by other guests and thus prevent giving you the same thing multiple times. It’s a win-win situation for both parties!
Guests Receive Registry Perks
Not all gifts are equal. No, we’re not talking about their price or the sentimental value they hold. We’re referring to their overall build quality. As is common in every industry, most items that are priced higher tend to be so because of the higher quality of materials that are used. But it’s difficult to buy expensive gifts so what ends up happening is that you’re given products with subpar build quality.
However, by partnering up with LOOMLAN, you can find handmade products built with expert craftsmanship that are priced at a more affordable rate. LOOMLAN products are also environmentally friendly and were built following sustainable practices, so you will help your guests support a good cause as well.
How to Make a Great Registry?
Although the trend started with wedding registries, the idea of registries has spread across multiple occasions like baby showers. Yet all these different types of registries have three important factors that you need to get right.
Give Guests Multiple Options
Gift-giving is a beautiful experience. It goes beyond just fulfilling the basic needs and wants of the receiver. A healthy gift-giving experience includes buying something that pleases the giver and the receiver. Because after all, there’s so much shared happiness and meaning in giving something both parties like.
Of course, this does not need to happen with every single guest you have on the list but if you can create that situation, why not? And the best way to do that is by having more than 3-4 gift options per guest. This provides enough opportunity for your guest to choose something that you need and that they themselves like as well.
Include Gifts from All Price Segments
Another reason why you want to include at least 3-4 gift options per guest is that everyone’s financial situation is different. They may or may not be able to afford a lot of the gifts mentioned in your list. People love you so they might try to go out of their budget just to get you what you want.
We feel you can totally prevent that situation by having multiple options priced in different price segments. This way, you can get whatever you want without putting your well-wishers in an awkward position.
Have More Evergreen Gifts
If there’s one mistake you want to avoid making while creating your wedding registry, it’s selecting only trendy and seasonal gifts. Yes, trends are great and certain trends can be great as long-term purchases but as a whole, trends disappear and if your items don’t serve a purpose besides their novelty, you might regret owning them.
It’s so much better to list evergreen products on your wedding registry. Such products help set the foundation of your home and be super useful for the next ten to twenty years. This does not mean you should only list utilitarian items on your registry. Try to strike an 80-20 balance between evergreen and trendy items.
Wedding Gifts for Every Room
Let’s kickstart with the bedroom. This is one of the easiest areas to decorate because you’re going to deal with fewer elements as compared to the living room.
However, beds can take a substantial chunk of your budget so if there’s one item to include in the registry, it should be the bed. Explore our collection of modern upholstered king size beds, dressers and bedside tables. We offer everything from country to contemporary in a variety of materials and colors.

The living room is where the fun starts. There are so many elements to play around with. You’ve got sofas, chandeliers, and bookshelves, the list is endless. One of the pieces a living room can not be without is a comfortable seating. Consider stain-resistant performance fabric couch or a sectional. LOOMLAN offers a large selection of performance fabric lounging furniture, which are ideal for busy home....perhaps a home with kids and pets. See stain resistant, pet parents (and kid parents alike) approved performance fabric sofas and sectionals here.
When it comes to wedding registries, the number one item given to couples is accent cabinets, buffets and sideboards.
LOOMLAN brings you a huge selection of buffets with or without hutches, as well as small accent cabinets and pantry sideboards. Consider stunning hand carved eco-friendly (sustainable materials) sideboards from recycled materials. Beautiful, spacious, practical and help to save the planet!
