The editors of Martha Stewart Weddings have compiled a great wedding registry guide for newly engaged couples. The online piece, titled “Build The Perfect Wedding Registry,” details the how-to’s and what-for’s to help anyone set-up and manage an effective registry.

Whether you’re looking for traditional home-starter items or going off the beaten path and simply soliciting donations for a favorite charity, this guide will let you know how to set up a wedding registry that meets your goals. Couples in need of financial gifts — say for a down payment on a house — or who would like to have their honeymoons funded, also have registry options that many people aren’t aware of.

The editors emphasize these four key points about wedding registries:

  • Registries aren’t just a gift grab — they make your guests’ lives easier.
  • Online is great, but you should still visit a store in person.
  • Stick to two or three stores, ideally one of them national.
  • Rely on family members to spread the word about where you’re registered.
