CLEVELAND, OH -- I've been to 5 weddings this summer already with two more to go and continue to hear about those of you looking for something beyond Macy's or Crate and Barrel. Before we get to five great unique registries...
Airline Registries: Almost as good as cash, my wife and I registered with a major airline. The people that gave to it also benefited from air miles when they gifted. We chose United Airlines. Their personalized registry web portal made things easy.
Hotel Registries: Another great option to cash-in on an experience or use for a honeymoon / anniversary.
Outdoor Lovers: REI has a registry option for couples outdoor enthusiasts and some nice updated features.
Cash Registries: Let's face it: the vast majority of couples these days want money. For those who want to ask for cash without any shame, registries, like OurWishingWell.com allow visitors to give toward events like a household renovation, trip, new home or even a graduate degree.
