NG REGISTRY TIPS ▼ • Register with more than one retailer, such as a department store and a few specialty shops that you love. This will also give your guests more options in selecting a gift. • Wherever you register, get the word out via friends and family. Remember, it's a big no-no to mention it on your wedding invitations. • Be considerate of your guests' budgets and choose registry items at a wide variety of price points. • If you prefer to receive cash, don't be tacky by asking for it outright. Instead, register for gift certificates, or register on a website where guests can contribute funds toward your honeymoon, new home or other needs. • Be sure to send a thank-you card to every giftgiver. Don't leave it too late, or they'll be wondering if you even received their gift. Brick-oven-style pizza is easy to make at home with Breville's Crispy Crust Pizza Maker.
