4 Reasons Not To Gift Off the Registry (A W(h)iney Bride)
In my opinion, there are only a few justifiable reasons for not buying a gift off the registry. Here's when and why I deviate from the registry:
- When I'm not invited to their wedding shower
- When I'm not invited to their wedding
- When I have a personal, thoughtful reason for purchasing your gift for the newly married couple
- When the couple's registry is completely sold out
For my close friends who were married last weekend in Chicago, my fiancé and I decided to gift them something a little bit different. My justifications for doing so were Rule # 1 and # 4. Doubly justified!
Joel and I are huge winos (hence my blogger name) — and this particular couple appreciates their wine too. So we wanted to incorporate that into our wedding gift.
Just regular old wine bottles wouldn't cut it so we added a special touch and I'm so pleased with the way they turned out.
Each of the three bottles will be opened on a significant moment in their lives and they'll always be reminded of our friendship every time they pop a cork.
Plus, I have no fear that this will be a repeat gift!
