That means brides and their grooms are registering for all the items they'll need to set up house.
And guests will be hitting the stores and websites in search of for the perfect gift.
From appliances to flatware, wedding registries let the happy couple choose the items they need, and hopefully avoid getting a few gifts they don't want.
Popular wedding planning site, the knot dot com, offers tips for couples, and their shoppers.
First, register early and update often.
You should have twice as many gifts on your registry as there are guests on your invite list.
Be sure to choose items from a variety of price points.
Everyone has a different amount they're comfortable spending on gifts.
Only register for the things you will actually use.
If you're outdoor enthusiasts, but don't often entertain, skip the china and register for camping gear instead.
While asking for cash is taboo, gift cards and funds are more acceptable.
At cardavenue.com, you can register for gift cards from multiple retailers.
You can also set up a honeymoon fund with a travel agent or an online site like honey-fund dot com.
No matter where you register or where you purchase a gift, be sure to read all the fine print.
Some retailers require a gift receipt for all registry items that are returned or exchanged and return time frames vary greatly.
