Registering for wedding gifts - it's supposed to be fun but usually ends up being overwhelming. Mostly because everyone keeps telling you that you HAVE to register for this or you HAVE to register for that. Ignore them. These days you can register for your honeymoon or even register for the kitchen sink. But what if you actually DO want to register for stuff - just not AS MUCH stuff as everyone's telling you to?
The Registry Handbook to the rescue!
This series will be helping you build your registry piece by piece but with a practical bend. This is the registry round up for you non-fancy-gardeners, non-celebrate-every-holidayers, and non-fancy-ass-anythingers. These are the essentials you'll need to get you into your new married life in a sensible fashion. We're talking the bare-bones basics and looking more into investing in good (not great) quality than in hoarding. Check it out:

The focus of this Jewish-centric registry is to get you what you need to do a little celebrating and a little worshipping. Nothing more. Nothing less. When registering, try to focus on picking out quality items in the middle price range. Anything less will not last or be crappy and frustrate you and anything more is a bit much if all you plan on doing is focusing on a specific holiday and some basic celebrating. Stick with simple colors and materials (solid colors and hardy materials hold up best). Everything on this downloadable (click the image for the PDF!) handbook page is perfect for your holiday/worship needs and ready to 3-hole punch and insert in your wedding binder/planner.
