Creative Non-Traditional Registry Ideas

Have you started planning your wedding & realized that it’s turning out to be less traditional than you thought? Well, it’s 2020 & your registry doesn’t have to be traditional either! We see a lot of non-traditional things in the industry from floral trends to food ideas & registries have been changing over the last few years as well. Look no further for ideas (with links!) for out of the box registries if you want to give your guests options to gift that aren’t cash or in store options.


You’ve likely heard of Honeyfund – here your guests can give you money, gift cards, or passes for excursions on your actual trip via the site & lucky for you, it’s all free to set up. You can get your money deposited to you in as quickly as 3 days, & use it for your honeymoon shortly after your wedding, which is what makes it such a popular option.


Because who doesn’t need art?! UGallery allows the bride & groom to curate their own non-traditional registry from up & coming artists & then their guests can purchase that art & have it shipped straight to the their intended addresses. They even have group gifting if multiple people want to go in on one piece of art. We think it’s a great gift for a new couple starting a new chapter.


Okay, hear us out with this one. Glamping & camping are at an all time high, & for the couple who already have all the bedding, pots, pans & everything else this might just be what they need. REI offers a wedding registry through a partnership with MyRegistry.com & any pair planning to spend their time in the outdoors can find everything they need. If you’re the couple who wants to hike, camp, & sleep under the stars after tying the knot then we’d suggest checking out this non-traditional registry.


If you’re a couple who feels like you already have everything or just don’t need new things you could consider a charitable registry. JustGiving is one of many where you can elect a non-profit organization where your guests can donate to a cause of your choosing. While non-traditional, it’s always great to be generous when people have been generous to you & a registry is a good place to start!

We know that when planning gets going your registry isn’t one of the larger things in mind, but we’d still love to help get it all pulled together. Please reach out to us if you’d like to start planning any of these registries – we’d love to help!
