The Registry Goes Tech

Posted by on Jul 15, 2010 in Blog | 6 Comments

The tradition of the bridal registry dates back to Victorian times when the registry was actually just a simple book kept in a shop where friends and relatives would go to view the list and select items to purchase. Now that we have entered the “digital” age, most registries are accessible on-line in one way or another. Additionally, with technological advances there are an overwhelming range of items you can add to your registry – some  quite useful, others not so necessary…but still pretty awesome.

Here are a few fun items that fall into both of these categories: (the Cuisinart ice cream maker tops my list – mom never let me get the Snoopy Snow Cone machine so this will hit the spot and then some)

Another personal favorite is the new Nook from Barnes and Noble. It is a new-ish (new for for B&N at least) e-reader that you can personalize with fun cases that come in a variety of different colors and styles. And yes I have to admit, the chic and adorable Kate Spade covers are an absolute must have in my book. Ha! Get it…my book ;-)

    I think my wife and I were more old fashioned and registered for gifts such as lamps, towels, pot and pans…Mostly because the more technologically advanced items are just way too expensive right now. I really do love all the gifts pictured above though!

    The New Tech Wedding Registry…

    When getting married, or even having a baby, going to a store and using the registry is actually something that is quite fun for most. While there are various people that actually put useful and diverse items on their registry. . …….

    what i like best about the ‘digital’ age is the abundance of online registries. i go kinda nutty in the stores…do you know depositagift.com? we decided to forego the stuff and use it to register for a new home fund and a mini-moon. it rocks.

    All fantastic ideas. People have known for years that the registry concept has been outdated and the movement towards the non-traditional and high-tech is such a breath of fresh air!
