The newlywed and engaged couples of the 21st century are very different from the bride-and-groom of the last century. Who is the modern engaged or newlywed couple? We could picture them planning their wedding in between lunch breaks at the office, scheduling a honeymoon around their babysitters, and sharing a home before the nuptials.
The changes in the typical couple of today’s society is also reflected in the wedding style and even in the wedding registry. The traditional wedding registry usually consisted of the usual household items, like kitchenware, bedding, and home improvement tools. But as couples are getting married later in life and living together much sooner, the content in a wedding registry has been modernized as well.
MyRegistry.com, launched in 2007 by founder, Oded Berkowitz, realized what was needed for the modern couple looking to expand their wedding registry to meet their needs. Nancy Lee of MyRegistry.com explores the most popular wedding registry items for today’s newlywed couple, and how it differs from the traditional “toaster” items of yesterday.
