Wedding Registry Tips
“Before choosing where to register, find out what kinds of perks and discounts you might get. For example, some retailers offer what’s called a completion program that allows you to purchase whatever you don’t receive at a discount (10 to 15 percent off for up to a year after the wedding, for example).”
Did you know that some retailers will let you purchase the items you don’t get from your registry at a discount? That’s just one of the many tips and tricks that The Knot points out in their long list of wedding registry advice.
