When you get married, one portion of the wedding planning you can’t overlook is creating a wedding registry. Before your wedding day, you register a list of all the items you would like to receive as a gift from your guests. It’s a great way to ensure you get everything you need for your honeymoon or new home following your big day.

But what if you are dealing with a wedding postponement? What is the proper wedding etiquette according to expert advice? Can you still have a wedding registry?

How Long Can I Keep My Hitchd Registry After Setting a New Date?

The good news is that you can keep your wedding registry active for as long as you want! If you’ve decided to postpone your wedding to a new date, your registry will be waiting for you. There’s no process involved. You can even go beyond your original inspiration and add presents to it or take items off as you please. So, if you’re planning your nuptial celebration with loved ones now or in the future, don’t worry - you can still have a Hitchd registry!

With the ever-looming threat of COVID-19 resurfacing and causing wedding vendors to shut their doors another time, postponing your big day to a new date is an issue many weddings face. Hitchd knows this and guarantees you and your guests peace of mind that your registry will still be waiting for you on the other side.

How Long Is a Wedding Registry Good For?

A wedding registry is typically good for one year. This means you can use it to receive gifts up to one year after your wedding date. After that, the registry will expire, and you will no longer be able to add items or receive gifts.

However, some registries (like Hitchd) do not have an expiration date, so you can keep your registry active for as long as you want. That sets Hitchd apart from the competition; we value our clients and understand that life can be unpredictable.

Do People Still Make Wedding Registries?

Of course! People still get married all the time, and they still have wedding registries. Many couples are now choosing to create a registry even if they’re not getting married because a registry can be used for any special occasion, not just a wedding. If you’re having an anniversary or even a baby shower, you can create a registry for this too.

The registry gives you functions for your guest list to RSVP. Plus, it details an event overview describing times, locations, and dates to friends and family in attendance.

Do Older Couples Have a Wedding Registry?

Yes! Many older couples choose to have a registry, especially if they are getting married for the second time, because they may already have all of the traditional items typically given as wedding gifts.

By choosing a nontraditional registry, they can get funding for their honeymoons instead of doing things the traditional way. If you’re an older couple getting married (or honeymooning), we recommend creating a Hitchd Registry. Our registries never expire, so you can create one today and use it whenever you’re ready to honeymoon.

What Types of Couples Have Registries on Their Wedding Website?

No one type of couple has a wedding website registry - all kinds of couples can benefit from having one. Whether you’re getting married for the first or the fifth time, eloping or having a traditional wedding, young or old.

Charitable Couples

Hitchd has a function in which friends and family can put towards a charity of your choice. That’s why couples want to donate their proceeds to charity using Htichd. If you and your partner want to donate all or some of the proceeds from your registry to charity, then Hitchd has you covered.

Modern Couples

If you and your partner are looking for a modern way to honeymoon, then moving away from the traditional registry is what you need. Hitchd allows your guests to give gifts towards experiences rather than physical items. Hitchd is the way modern couples do things these days.

Older Couples

Older couples often have most of the material things they need in their home. They might not have the opportunity to travel as much as they used to. That’s where honeymoon registries come into play. Guests can help fund your dream honeymoon so that you can travel the world while creating new memories together later in your life.

Traditional Couples

For couples looking for a more traditional registry, Hitchd has this too. You can add physical items to your registry as well as honeymoon experiences. This way, you can have the best of both worlds.

Can You Still Have a Wedding Registry if You Elope?
