gift registries...

I've found myself coming across unique gift registries here lately...of course there is always the fabulous crate & barrel, restoration hardware, macy's, target, and more...but some couples might have everything they need to start their life together...

A unique gift registry might be a good are some options that I have come across lately:

The IMA in Indianapolis
They have a gift shop that has a wide array of items, and they've started a gift registry!
Some great gift ideas, jewlery, hostess gifts, holiday presents, and more as well.

Different Drummer in Bloomington
Most people in Bloomington are aware of the Different Drummer, the cute little shop just off of College Mall Rd. They have started a gift registry program as well...cute home accessories and more await...

Other online options for different types of gifts:
Many couples are couples are choosing not to give favors at their wedding reception, but are instead choosing to give a donation in honor of each guest.
Charity Gift Certificates, gives couples options, as well guests to donate in the couple's honor
Most specific charities have similar giving options as well.
The IDoFoundation also does this...

For the honeymoon...
Honeymoon Wishes...this website is a service that allows you to register for pieces of your honeymoon or destination wedding and guests can purchase them for you (a masssage, champagne, a night on the town, a romantic dinner, car rental, etc).

Send Us Off...this site has a similar idea to Honeymoon Wishes, but it can provide more "outings" and things for you to experience together such as a hot air balloon ride, a guided tour, riding a camel, etc.

You can also consider unusual registries...such at local nursery for plants, trees, and shrubs for a new home or art at a local gallery. Likely, many places wont have registry programs in place, but many will work with you to set something up for you and your guests.

Happy Planning!
