I’m so excited about this. It’s something that I heard about last summer when they were still in development and I’m happy to say that Best Buy has finally launched a wedding registry! As someone who is both a tech addict and a gadget geek, I so wish this had been an option when Kyle and I got married.
Why set up a registry at Best Buy?
Realistically, the days when most of us will need a dining set for eight are probably behind us. I registered for (and received) a full dining set for eight courtesy of a lot of generous relatives and I can now host a dinner in which everyone will have high end matching dinner, salad, and desert plates along with soup bowls, ice cream bowls, and mugs for coffee. In the six years we’ve been married, I have only occasionally served dinner for eight people all at once. In absolutely none of those instances have I ever used our wedding china. Le sigh.
What we have been using (and purchasing for ourselves) have been things like cameras, activity trackers, our TV, tablets, mp3 players, speakers, and video games. If I could, I would trade our wedding dishes in for Best Buy credit faster than you can say, “I can’t believe I had to buy a hutch just to have somewhere to put all of these dishes”. Best Buy also has a lot of the appliances newlyweds need when they’re setting up their first home and it’s easy to set up group gifting so people can go in on something large (or small!) that the couple really wants.
It’s easy to set up a wedding registry at Best Buy and start sharing it with your wedding guests, who can either shop online or in-store. The only hard part will be narrowing down which awesome things you really want! (And narrow it down, believe me! Registering for everything is how we ended up with our fondue set and the camping gear we’ve never ever used. Le sigh again.)
