Adding items to your wedding gift registry can be very overwhelming, especially if you register at a large department store.

If you are health conscious, opt for gluten-free wedding cakes, appetizers, and refreshments. Instead of sweets loaded with wheat, many bakeries now offer options that are entirely free of gluten.

For a unique spin on the traditional wedding guest book, use clothespins to affix blank heavyweight over-size gift tags to a floral garland, hemp rope, or line of pennants.

Guests can write messages of hope and blessings for the new couple, then pin them back on the rope.

A dozen large, elaborate floral centerpieces can set a bride back hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Save money by opting for floral pots filled with fresh garden herbs like lavender, thyme, and rosemary. Fresh-cut green herbs will fill the reception site with a clean, crisp fragrance. Sprigs of herbs are also an affordable way to add volume to floral centerpieces.

Think about filling a menu with popular choices in a contemporary fusion style. Add a twist by using ethnic drinks, wedding favors, or dessert options.

Don’t wait too long, and take action well in advance to guarantee you receive the venue you desire as well as the vendors at the top of your list.
