If you are an obsessive pinner like I am, then I know you spend endless hours pouring over inspiration images all day. Many of the products, designs and ideas come from a variety of sources: everything from handmade Etsy crafts to exquisite designer textiles. Gals with design in mind have a tough time when it comes to registries…it’s so hard to limit your selections to one or two major chains. I mean, if I were to make a dream list of things I might want for my own wedding, it might include experiences like a road trip safari, a hand gilded zig zag tray, a Moroccan wedding blanket (vis SF Girl by Bay) and a bauble or two for the honeymoon.
What’s a girl to do when she’s not satisfied with status quo? The solution is Deposit a Gift, which is a service that allows your guests to discreetly give you cash gifts, so you can spend their token of congratulations on creative, memorable items that you’ll adore, rather than a bajillion toasters and white plates that you’ll wear out. And, if you are the type of couple that already has everything for your home, I love that Deposit a Gift allows you the freedom to splurge a bit more on wedding details, like perhaps individual margarita shots with mini tacos (via Peak of Chic), a canoe of drinks, or custom printed handkerchief invites and bellybands:
Additionally, Deposit a Gift can help you throw a shower (!!!) like this brunch inspired one that was recently featured over on Hostess with the Mostess with party design and styling by Frilly Milly Events and photography by Lauren Blair Photography.
If you love the idea as much as I do, you can create your registry here. Your guests will love the convenience and you will benefit from the flexibility! Plus, they’ll get to see what they are helping you purchase, like this couple, who put together an entire registry to help them revamp their first home! (How adorbs, right?). With Deposit a Gift you can register for anything, from honeymoons to home down payments, hobbies and crafts, to even date nights and charity! Want more ideas? Check out what these happy couples did.
I’ll let you get back to pinning, which now, may be a bit more like shopping than you ever had thought possible.
