The only thing cooler than this couples’ destination wedding plans is their taste in home decor.
Noah and Zooey know what they want: a small wedding in a tropical place and to purchase their first home. And they’re using their Blueprint Registry to do just that.
But let’s go back to the beginning: these lovebirds met through mutual friends at their favorite music festival and have lived together in Portland (with their cat Broccoli!) for two years. Noah is a full-time student working toward his MBA and Zooey teaches at an elementary school.
While they’re mostly set when it comes to home goods, many of their essentials are leftover from their undergrad days, so they’re using their registry to upgrade some of their larger appliances and big ticket items, as well as adding gifts from local boutiques. Their Costa Rican wedding will include 50 of their closest friends and family, but they also want to be sure to include enough cash gifts for their loved ones who are unable to travel.
And we think they’ve struck the perfect balance!
Does the big-ticket + cash fund gift registry sound right for you?
Questions + Considerations
What does Blueprint recommend when starting a registry? Three easy places to start to think about registry ideas: items you own and want to upgrade + general cash funds + experiences to do together
How many gifts should I have? 2 gifts per guest. Cash funds help create many gifting opportunities by allowing multiple guests to contribute, especially since the wedding is a destination wedding.
Does Blueprint allow registrants to add gifts from local boutiques? Absolutely! If the boutique has an online shopping capability; or registrants can create a custom cash gift for the item to buy on their own time.
How do I share Blueprint Registry with my guests? Registrants may share their custom URL, or simply say that they are registered with BlueprintRegistry.com.
See below for some of the gifts they chose, and don’t miss the rest of their beautiful registry.
