Create the Ultimate Wedding Registry

1. Create the ultimate wedding registry

When it comes to creating a registry, if there was a way to have your cake and eat it too, MyRegistry.com would be it. Let’s face it, you don’t shop at just one store. So, why would you limit the number of places where you register? MyRegistry lets you create gift lists at as many stores as you like and then combine them into one universal registry. Huge bonus: Whatever signup incentives the stores give you (free gifts, completion discounts, etc.) are yours to keep!

Discreetly Number Your RSVP Cards

2. Discreetly number your RSVP cards

Put an inconspicuous number on your RSVP cards that corresponds to your own numbered guest list. Terrible handwriting and missing names (it happens, just wait!) are no match for this foolproof little maneuver.

Seal Envelopes Without Licking Them

3. Seal envelopes without licking them

Engagement party invites, wedding invites, thank you notes—it can feel like you have a million envelopes to seal. Well, fret not. To keep paper cuts off your tongue—and that awful glue taste out of your mouth—use a clean household sponge dampened with water. Just be sure it’s slightly moist, not wet, or you could end up damaging the contents inside.

Color Code Your Seating Chart

4. Color code your seating chart

Surely you’ve heard by now that tackling a seating chart is no small task. We won’t lie, it’s a huge pain. But it can be made less bad with color-coded sticky notes. Assign a different color to each set of guests and then pen in individual names. Need to rethink placing the IT guy from work next to your single-but-ready-to-mingle Aunt Susie? No problem.

Sidestep Writer's Cramp

5. Sidestep writer’s cramp

Another peril of post-event correspondence is how many times you have to write out your return address. Sure, you can order those run-of-the-mill sticky labels, but a custom return address stamp is infinitely more elegant—and cost effective, too. Just replace the ink pad after every few hundred uses and you’ll go on stamping forever (or at least until you move).
