I find the idea of wedding gifts and wedding registries so wonderfully romantic. These are the items you'll be using for the rest of your lives, as you spend the rest of your lives together, each one infused with the love of the person who so generously gave it to you. If you're the sort who only wants to own a few things, but wants each one of them to be (multi)functional, look beautiful, and last forever, this is the wedding registry for you. Cheers!
