Lindsay Jones, founder of Woman Getting Married, recommends a mix of traditional and cash gifts. "Older guests always want to buy a stand mixer or towels."
Usually. Some wedding registries, such as With Joy, are fee-free. Depending on the registry, guests may pay the fee or you may pay it when you collect gifts.
Etiquette says not to include your registry on invitations. Include your wedding website on the invitation, then link to your registry.
Etiquette expert Jodi R.R. Smith, author of From Clueless to Class Act: Manners for the Modern Woman and founder of Mannersmith in Marblehead, Mass., says, “There's a time and a place and a way to do things politely.”
