Weddings are always so much fun. Celebrating the joy of a couple combining their lives, there's really nothing else like seeing a couple so madly in love share something so special in front of all of their friends and family. Laughter, tears of joy, good times, even better music, even more amazing friends, and hopefully some mind-blowingly fantastic wedding cake - we all love weddings for one reason or another!
We had a wedding registry all set up and we received some amazing gifts for our wedding day way back in 2008, but I really wish I would've known that Best Buy offered a wedding registry service! We could've added things to our list that we really needed and/or wanted and I bet most of those items would still be with us today. We received a lot of things that we thought we needed, towels, plate sets, the norm... We were thankful for those items but most of them have been donated or just simply used until they couldn't be used anymore. Had we had the chance to register for appliances and electronics, amongst the other items Best Buy carries, we'd most likely still have everything we received. Think of registering at Best Buy as investment of sorts...
Another reason to register at Best Buy is their "group gift" option. Your guests can choose an amount they wish to contribute and you'll receive an e-gift card instead of a random gift you didn't really want... Hello to another reason to smile big on your wedding day! Whether you want to register for new appliances and ask all your guests to group gift the items to you or you want to add every DVD you've ever wanted, you can put whatever your heart desires on your wedding registry and your friends can be sure the gift they're giving you is perfect for you!
Today I'm going to share 5 items that every couple should have on their wedding registry... After being married for nearly 7 years (in December), I think I have a pretty good idea of what you will and won't need.
What you will need will definitely include a nice washer and dryer set. While this may not seem like the ultimate gift idea, I assure you - if you get the right set you'll be super thankful that you have it! We have spent many years visiting laundry mats and I'll let you know right now, a washer and dryer is a must-have as a married couple! It's not a fancy gift, per say, but it's something you'll use for many years to come AND I'm certain your family and friends would love to throw in together and "group gift" this for you so that they are actually getting you something you want and need!
You'll also want to add a reliable and sturdy vacuum. We bought a cheap little handheld back when we first got married... little did I know that we'd go through a handful of dreadful and unreliable vacuums through out our marriage. I'm still dreaming of the day that we're rewarded with a beauty like this Dyson, so I suggest you add this investment of a vacuum to your registry and tell a group of your bestest friends to go in on it together! It'll be something you cherish and every time you vacuum it'll be less of a chore because it was a gift from people you love... right?
While you may not necessarily need this, you'll definitely want a GoPro Hero4 to your list. It's not your average wedding gift, but you'll love that you have a camera recording when your taking your first surf lessons on your honeymoon or exploring the coast on your anniversary trip. We're still longing for a GoPro in our home... donations are being accepted in the form of Best Buy gift cards, if you feel like treating us! *hint, hint - a GoPro Hero4 really is the perfect gift for ANY couple!*
Last, but certainly not least, this beast is definitely something you'll want and need in your life. Having a computer that is reliable and that can handle all of the video and picture memories you two will make together is so important. I recently upgraded to this exact laptop, that's only available at Best Buy, and I'm in love with it. High quality, reliable, and runs so smooth! I highly suggest you ask for a new computer to start your new journey together, especially if your a techie couple like we are... Oh and in case you are wondering, this is the HP Envy 17.3 inch Touch Screen Laptop with a HUGE 16GB memory, 1 TB Hard Drive, and a whole lot of awesomeness!
Why stop there though? There's a million other things that Best Buy can help you find to complete your wedding registry, from hair straighteners to new speakers for your souped-up ride - you'll be able to add anything and everything to your wedding registry and your quirky friends and loving family will be able to find the perfect treasures to treat you with quickly. I'd love to hear what you plan to add to your wedding registry or if you're already married, tell me all about what your Best Buy "wish list" looks like in the comments below!
