It includes what you want as you start your life together, what you add to the registry will be part of the fabric of your future life. And it doesn’t just have to be kitchenware or plates and silver. Here are 10 unique wedding registry ideas that you are guaranteed to fall in love withand they’ll likely keep you in love with your spouse at the same time.

We believe that unique wedding gifts can be the best wedding giftsespecially when you ask for them.


Enjoy a Dream Honeymoon

The newlywed’s honeymoon has been a traditional post-wedding ritual for nearly 200 years. Of course, how people travel and where they go on their honeymoon has changed substantially, but the purpose of the trip has remained the sameto enjoy the moment with your new spouse before returning to everyday life. One unique wedding registry idea is to create a honeymoon registry that can help you enjoy this wonderful trip and include your friends and family, but not in an awkward, third-wheel kind of way. :-) 

Your honeymoon registry can include a cash fund to pay for flights, hotels or experiences like specific tours or activities. But it can also include hotel or resort stays, as well as specific products you might want or need for the trip like luggage or travel accessories. You might already have them in your wedding registry, but it's never a bad idea to make sure you include them if you want to do a lot of travel as a couple.

DIY Around Your Home

Home takes on more meaning for the married couple. You’ll want to make sure it reflects the best of both you and your partner’s tastes and preferences. This might include some DIY projects around the home. Why not add a few DIY home improvement wedding gifts ideas for your wedding registry. By adding tools and supplies from the big box home stores like Home Depot or Lowes, or new furniture from Macy’s or Bloomingdales, your registry can help your friends and family know what you need - and what you like. As you curate your wedding gift list you’ll be sharing the kinds of things you like that align with your vision for how you want to live. So take the time and think about what you need to make your house or apartment the home you and your spouse want.

The Name Change Gift Card. No, really, it’s a thing.

Gift cards are boring, but not when they save you time and hassle! Enter the HitchSwitch gift card. This is a unique wedding registry idea that is also unbelievably practical. Name changes can be a hassle and HitchSwitch takes the hassle out of the process. They have three levels of service: Print at Home, Full Service and Platinum. Pick one and add it to your registry. You will be glad you did. 

Sharing Via Charitable Donations

Weddings are ultimately about sharing the love between two people amongst friends and family. You may not want the sharing to stop there. If you’re the philanthropic type, look to add charitable donations as an option for your wedding registry. Maybe you have a foundation or a local organization that you support or want to start supporting, make a charitable donation to that organization available on your wedding registry. Thousands of charities use MyRegistry.com to help them raise funds through gift drives, but there’s also an easy way to add cash donations that will go straight to the organization you love. Including a charitable donation is a sincere and unique wedding registry ideaespecially if you and your spouse already have most of what you need and just want to give back in honor of your special day.

Keep Growing With Memberships

Couples need to keep growing and exploring together. Memberships to museums or cultural clubs or even gyms are some of the most unique wedding registry gift ideas. If you’re in NYC, maybe the MoMA membership makes sense. Or for Angelenos or film buff couples, the Academy of Motion Picture’s Academy Museum offers annual memberships that can take your love of film to a whole new level. 

Couples That Play Together

Golf lessons, yoga classes or a surfing school trip? Experiences can be a unique wedding gift to add to your wedding registry. Finding time to enjoy life together as a couple can be challenging as work and other commitments take over. Filling your schedule with planned classes can help keep the magic going. And maybe your friends and family can join you. You’ll want to add all the wedding gifts for outdoorsy couples needed for these experiences as well!

Open for Learning a Language

Hola! Ciao! Guten Tag! What language would you like to learn? Maybe pick a language that neither you nor your partner speaks and learn it together. The idea of adding language lessons is definitely a unique wedding registry idea. Not that MyRegistry hasn’t seen it before; we’ve seen all sorts of things on our registries.

Putting Down Roots With a Down Payment Fund

Sometimes cold hard cash is the best thing to ask for as a wedding gift. As a couple just starting out together creating a cash fund with the specific goal of saving for a down payment on a house is definitely worth considering. As home purchases keep getting more expensive, saving from the get go will make eventually buying a home a lot easier. Your guests will appreciate having the option to give a cash gift and be pleased to know it's going to help you buy your home.

Get Wedding Gifts All Year Long With Subscription Services

Subscription serviceslike a meal plan from Hello Fresh or a bottle of wine from the Wine of the Month Clubare a terrific and unique wedding registry idea. Since they come regularly each month or week, these subscriptions can be like receiving a wedding gift over and over again all year long! 

Hit the Road With Travel and New Experiences

Travel is all about experiencing new and exciting destinations. Beyond your honeymoon, you and your spouse will have a lifetime of travel together. So why not put some of your bucket list travel destinations on your registry.
