Wedding Registry Checklist

 

Print this list before you register to stay organized as you select items. It'll help ensure that your registry is thorough, comprehensive and easy for your guests to shop from. Or, if you've already registered, use it to double-check for items you may have forgotten. (Chances are, you'll find something you missed!)

Make your registry experience fun and stress-free. Book an appointment in store
