Everyone knows they want money. Here’s what they’re not thinking about. There’s so much power in creating a wedding registry. You can add anything you want. Like that insanely overpriced copper cookware set everyone keeps Pinning, or the Playstation your partner wants but isn’t allowed to spend money on because you’re, you know, paying for a wedding. And people will buy it for you! It’s like your birthday and the holidays all rolled up into one, except you know exactly what’s going to be in those prettily-wrapped boxes.
Even though you think you know how you want your guests to spend their money, they go off-script and surprise you with a gift you didn’t even know you wanted — or needed. After hearing the surprising gifts these brides got, you just might want to add a few more items to your own registry.
