The Crowdfunding Registry
Instead of building a list of physical items, register for something big—something you can’t put a name on. You can make it for a donation to a charity you really care about or contributions to a loved one’s medical expenses. People love to feel like they're part of a good cause. Whatever it is, a crowdfund might just be a hit! There are registries like Zola that let you set up a crowd gifting campaign so your guests can contribute to something you are passionate about.
The Honeymoon Registry
Perhaps the most conventional of the unconventional registry options is the honeymoon registry! A honeymoon registry asks your guests to make a financial contribution to your post-wedding getaway. They don't feel like they’re just forking over aimless cash, it's cash for a reason. Again they feel like they are are part of contributing to something. On sites like Honeyfund guests can choose which part of the vacation they want to fund. You can ask for a little help paying for everything from airfare, luxury hotels or romantic dinners and even outdoor adventures. It’s all online, it can't get easier than that!
The Gift Card Registry
You can create a registry for gift cards only! On Honeyfund, your wedding guests can send you gift cards to just about anywhere, from Target and Amazon to Starbucks and Victoria’s Secret. Your more old-fashioned guests may appreciate the opportunity to give you a gift card instead of cash. You can spend them however you wish. This is a great idea for couples who don’t have a lot of space to store bulky gifts because they may be moving into a new home soon.
The Homebuilding Registry
With getting married often comes moving in together or buying a house — which is exciting but expensive. With a registry like this, your guests can help you with things like your down payment, upgrades or home renovations. After all, a wedding registry is all about helping the newlyweds start their life together!

1. Create multiple registries. Create one registry for kitchen gadgets and home decor and set up another at a home improvement store (such as Home Depot) to help you with any remodels, decor or for the backyard and garden. Some couples even sest up a charitable registry so that their guests can make a donation to their favorite cause.
2. Include a list of the latest housewares. Pans, convection ovens, mixers, water purification systems, dishes, high thread count sheets, flateware and knife blocks are just a few ideas of items that can be added to the list.
3. Make sure that your registry has items for every season. When you’re adding items like blankets, sheets and complete bedding sets to your wedding registry list, be sure to choose some lightweight fabrics that would be appropriate for the spring and summer. Also, add some heavier items to the list like blankets and throws for the colder fall and winter months.
4. Add some electronics to your registry. Today many couples choose kitchen appliances, wifi thermostats, GPS systems, sound systems, security systems and other electronic gadgets that make their houses safer and energy-efficient.
5. Put some items for entertaining on your bridal registary. Make sure to add a variety of bakeware, serving platters, glassware, coasters, placemats, wine decanters, glass pitchers and other entertaining must haves to your bridal registry gift lists.
