Don't fall victim to FOMO
Zola asked over 650 newly-hitched couples to share their biggest wedding registry regrets. From travel accessories to quality furniture, take it from the pros who've been there, done that. Don't fall victim to FOMO, and enjoy this time when you get to build something bright, shiny, and new with the one you love. Check out the registry gifts you don't want to miss out on below:
Luggage takes the cake as the number one gift couples regret not registering for. Today couples are adventurous, and want to register for items that fit into their lifestyle. Consider registering for a quality set of luggage to support your future travels. One of our personal favorites is the Samsonite Winfield Collection ($140-$190).
You may already be living with your partner in a fully-furnished home, but that doesn't mean you can't aim for an upgrade! Think about it ... Will you still want that hand-me-down sofa in a few years from now? If there are any pieces of furniture that might be nearing its expiration, add it to the registry as a group gift! A favorite amongst our Zola couples is the Malibu Sofa by Jonathan Adler ($3,200).
You've heard the saying, "When you marry someone, you marry their entire family." This is very true, except you ALSO marry their friends! A bar cart is a registry gift our Zola couples wish they added, as it makes entertaining guests so much more exciting (and convenient). Plus, it's aesthetically a beautiful addition to any home, and instantly gives you major hostess points. Sauder carries a chic International Lux Bar Cart with a sharp price point ($200).
Hiking + Camping Equipment
Out of 650 surveyed couples, approximately 30% said they would rough it in nature over a luxe hotel any day. So, test your outdoor cooking skills with the Halulite Microdualist Complete 14-Piece Cooking Set. The two of you can enjoy a home-cooked dinner under the stars, while resting up for an adventure filled weekend of hiking, kayaking, and exploration ($100)!
Honeymoon & Cash Funds
After adding all of the products you love to your registry, don't forget to plan for the experiences. Zola offers the lowest cash fee around, so you can enjoy your funds to the fullest. When asked, 15% of couples wished they registered for a cash fund to use on travel or special date nights. Never underestimate the power of wining and dining, whether it's in your neighborhood or across the Atlantic! Bon appétit.
