waveform events

Weddings are a happy time for family, friends, and of course the bride and groom. But there is a lot of planning before the wedding. On thing on your to-do list is your wedding registry. A registry can vary from couple to couple, but if you’re having trouble deciding what your registry should be, these 4 categories can help you decide!

1. Home goods. If you’re looking to add items to your home, your registry should be linked to your top home good choices. From kitchenware to electronics, this is a great way to get some of the items you’re missing.

2. Honeymoon. A great way to fund your honeymoon is to have your guests contribute to the fund. Instead of gifts, let your guests know they can give a donation toward your dream destination. Create an online GoFundMe account to make it easier for guests to donate.

3. Cash Gifts. A modern wedding gift idea is to have guests give you “gift cards” to your favorite places. Perfect for future date nights or a future purchase, cash gifts are a great way for guests to give couples who may not need much for their home!

4. Charity Donations. You may opt for something completely different and have your guests donate to a special cause you and your groom feel passionate about. Instead of gifts, have them donate to your favorite charity.

Whether you need items for your home or opt to donate to a charity, these registry ideas are a helpful tip for your guests to get you the perfect wedding send off gift.

Fun Bridal Party Games


It’s the job for the bridal party to shower and pamper the lovely bride right before her big day with a big bridal shower. From champagne toasts to girl talk, there are so many things to plan, especially the games. Although the bridal shower is for the bride, her lovely bridal party should have fun in the process too. Some games are dull and boring, but these six games will keep guests laughing and having fun throughout the day!

1. Who Am I? Ever play the game Guess Who? This game is similar, however, you write down the names of your favorite famous people and guests will place them on their forehead. Then the guests will take turns giving hints, while the person with the name on their forehead tries to guess. To spice it up, try using people, places, dates, etc significant to the bride and her groom.

2. How Old Is The Bride? Gather a big pile of photos from the bride and grooms childhood and have guests try to guess their age. Line them up on either a board or a table (not in chronological order) and the guest with the most correct answers wins a prize.

3. Words of Wisdom. This one is a little more sentimental. Have guests write down some thoughtful words or advice for the soon to be couple (from serious to silly of course). During the gift opening portion of the party, have the gift giver (the gift the bride is opening) read their words.

4. Gift Bingo. Create a game by writing down the potential gifts the bride may receive. During gifts, guests will mark their boards. Get creative with prizes by getting fun and silly gifts from the dollar store or making fun gift bags.

5. Banned Words. This is fun. As guests arrive, give them a fun trinket, like a bracelet or a necklace (something silly) and let them know a certain word is not allowed to be spoken for a portion of the party. The person who collects the most trinkets wins the game.

6. Dressing for the Honeymoon. This is an interactive game for the bride. Fill a suitcase or a travel bag with silly and fun items; from a big sombrero to a moo moo and things in-between. Blindfold the bride and as she picks up an item she has to guess how it is worn. It will be a fun and silly game and perfect photo opportunities for all!

From silly to sentimental, these games are a perfect addition to any bridal shower. Of course, modify each to your bride-to-be to make each game special. Let the fun begin!
