A dear friend of mine's son is getting married next month. The wedding is in California and unfortunately, we won't be able to attend.
I was happy to see that the couple had a wedding registry. That made buying them a gift much easier. And it is great that the gift is sent directly to them.
When I said I do (36+ years ago), I was young and naive and didn't even know about registries. All the gifts that we received were greatly appreciated ~ we didn't have anything and needed everything. Life was simpler then.
