The Dos

  • Make a list of items that range from low-cost basics, like food storage, to more expensive items, like a king-size mattress. This allows guests to pick something within their budget.
  • Include homeware items like bedding, kitchenware, cookware, and other home essentials. Your guests will appreciate that they are contributing something useful and helping you start your new life with the basics covered.
  • You may also ask for advice from the SM Gift Registry Advisors when creating your wedding wishlist. Simply visit the SM Gift Registry area at your nearest SM mall.

The don’ts

  • Don’t register for too many things. It can be overwhelming for your guests if you have too many items on your list. Try to keep the number manageable and focus on the essentials.
  • Don’t get stuck in one department or brand. This way, you’ll have a variety of gifts for your guests to choose from without feeling restricted by any one brand or category.
  • Don’t forget to register early and send the link to your guests. It is important to remember that your guests may need more time to go through your wishlist and decide on a gift.
