Looking for a Unique Wedding Registry Idea???

Is your kitchen already stocked?  Do you have enough bedding to last a lifetime?  Why not register for something you’ll actually enjoy…upscale restaurant gift certificates aka DINNER COOKED BY SOMEONE ELSE!!!


The Foodie Registry lets couples register for meals at more than 100 restaurants across the country.  This is a great option for foodies and globetrotters alike.  Just set up a registry, select your favorite restaurants and spread the word about your love of food to your guests.

It sure beats ending up with another pair of candlesticks…
