One of the most common questions we get, once a new registry is created, is..."ok, What do I do next?"
There is always more than one way to cook an egg but here are some pointers to get you started...
1) Invitations and wording
There's nothing better than receiving an invitation with all the relevant details and direct steps. If your Photographer or Videographer have their own coded registry cards, ask them for a bundle for your invites. If not, you can create your own. Here's some wording to get you started :)
"If choosing a gift is not your cup of tea you might like to try our Album Registry"
"All that we ask from you is that you join in celebrating our special day with us. However, if you decide on a gift, a contribution to our Album Registry would be warmly appreciated".
"If you were thinking of giving a gift to help us on our way A gift towards our Album would really make our day".
2) Socially share your registry
You'll be surprised as you get closer to your event, be it a wedding or a baby shower, you'll have hoards of friends, colleagues, family interstate or internationally wanting to give you something special. How do we know this? A large majority of our registry gifts are given from a different postcode from the registry location. Work mates always love to be a part of something unique, let them gift you something meaningful.
Head to your registry and hit the share icon. It's that simple.
3) Create an event page for your upcoming event
You can create a private or public event page on Facebook and include those who have been invited to attend then event and add others who you'd to keep up to date with all the relevant details. Or if you'd prefer to keep those not on the social medias in the loop, check out With Joy for a wedding webpage. These are perfect for travel directions, accomodation options and also your gift registry :) You can copy and paste your unique registry URL and drop it directly into the event page.
We look forward to seeing you get the most out of your registry experience. If you have any feedback or any tips we can add to this post, please let us know on the instant messenger :)
