What Wedding Gifts to Skip

Is there such a thing as a bad wedding gift?

When a Bride and Groom set up their registry, they have an idea in their head of what they want as wedding gifts. Sometimes those must haves turn into dust collectors, never leaving the box. Other times, well meaning loved ones skip the registry. They go with something sweet and sentimental in mind or something really last minute and again, the gift is pushed to the back shelf until the couple finally decides to toss it. If a bride and groom in either of these situations have the receipts to do returns and figure out that they want to return it early enough, then they may be able to salvage the bad gift before it ends up in the trash. Unfortunately, it is pretty typical for that gift receipt to not be included. You may think it's harsh to say your must have may turn into a waste or if your a wedding guest that your well meaning gift could end up in the trash?  But, think about all the things you have purchased and used once. Then think about putting another person's opinions and tastes into the equation. It's not a far fetched prophecy! So, let us help  you out!

Five Wedding Gifts NOT to get

Worst Wedding Gifts 1) Cutesy Cooking Tools: Nobody needs a mini doughnut maker. Unless they are five and it's play pretend. 2) Homemade and BOLD items: Homemade can be sweet. However, if it's too bold or distinct in style and doesn't match the couple or their home, you can bet that sweet item won't last very long. 3) Lingerie from anyone that's not a BFF type person. Mom's, grandmas, church leaders - pass your married life wisdom in another form. This gift has a good shot of just feeling awkward. Ultimately it is just more appropriate as a shower gift from a friend, than as wedding gifts. Basically, just read the room on this gift! Just a Bad idea as Wedding Gifts! 4) Advice Books: Whether it is about saving a relationship - "keeping the fire" - or what positions will increase the chances of getting pregnant, it is intrusive and works more as passing judgement than being helpful. 5) Anything that needs maintenance. If it's not something the bride and groom are already in the habit of doing or committed to, chances are that beautiful antique that needs to be oiled daily to keep in usable condition isn't going to oiled.

Now, what do you think the BEST wedding gifts would be? Check out our top three blog here and see if you agree!

Wedding Woes that can Wait

Planning a wedding seems to happen all at once - all of the decisions feel equally important and relevant when you're first engaged and you're caught in a flurry of congratulations and furious planning. Before you drive yourself crazy with details and dahlias, what tasks can be delegated down or saved for later? Here's a short list of tasks and tribulations that you can put on the backburner:   Picking the Bridal Party
Many a retrospective and once-overly-enthusiastic bride will tell you this: don't pick your bridal party too early. If you're still more than a year away from the wedding, keep your #1 pick for Maid of Honor and Flower Girl under wraps. Relationships change, people move away or begin doctorate programs. While your bridal party has only one responsibility - showing up and wearing nice, pre-selected clothes - you want to be sure that the men and women in your line are the friends and family you really want behind you on your wedding day. There's no harm in just waiting it out! Snapping Engagement Photos
Even though they're called "engagement photo shoots" they don't have to be planned and finished within the first few weeks of your engagement. The point of an engagement photo shoot is to showcase your relationship in an environment in which you feel comfortable during a particularly happy time in your life. Some couples choose to use these photos in their "save the dates" or wedding invitations, but by no means is that a requirement. If you're already overburdened with other wedding woes, don't feel that you have to squeeze an engagement photo shoot in as well. Then again, if you could really use an afternoon of looking pretty and exploring your favorite museum or tide pool with your puppy and fiancé, go right ahead!   Selecting Wedding Gifts
Gifts are fun, and pre-planning gifts for your wedding can be just as enjoyable, but it can also take a lot out of you. Registering takes way more energy than you might think, and registering too early can spell disaster for your "early bird" wedding planning ideals. If you register more than a few months ahead of when your invitations go out, you run the risk of items being discontinued and matching dish sets being broken up. My advice is to go through retailers' websites, mark items that you're interested in, and put that list aside for later. Save the physical registration process for just a few months before the big day to save an even bigger hassle later.
