But have you thought about the gifts you'll be receiving from your invitees? Did you know you could have a say in that, too? Because, why yes, you do.

It'll get the word out on what will help you get started on the next chapter of your lives. If you want to help out your guests with what gifts to give you, here are eight services you can check out:
Rustan’s provides a wide range of premium to luxurious options for anything you may need for the home or for yourselves. You can pick from fashion, beauty, accessories, fine jewelry, home and everything in between. A testament to the department store's carefully-curated merchandise is its selection of quirky and hard-to-find hobby items that would make nice additions to any home.
If building your shared home is the most important consideration in deciding what to include in your wedding gift wish list, turn to Crate and Barrel for all your needs. From big ticket items like beds and shelves to wall and table décor, you will be spoilt with choices. It also helps that their contemporary and modern products are versatile and timeless.
This Japanese chain for all things minimalist has amassed a following through its collection of stationery and writing instruments, but a quick scan of its store reveals many other fuss-free items to obsess over. Some items worth adding to your registry are outerwear, sleepwear, small accent pieces, and functional furniture and home storage. Perfect for when you need his and hers things.
Abenson Global City's registry program covers gadgets, appliances, as well as products under Abenson Home. After tagging a home theater set and maybe a microwave oven, you can head on over to Habitat to add an accent chair or a striking flower vase to your wishlist. Meanwhile, your guests have the option to pool their money together in order to get you the gift that you most want. They just have to arrange this with the store. This is an easier way to be gifted something that may be out of an individual's budget.
Over the years, Philux has made a name for its locally-crafted home products that stand the test of time. If you wish to fill your home with heirloom items that can be passed down to generations, you can register with Philux Home in Shangri-La at the Fort. The service promises an experience that is tailored to your taste and preference—a true hallmark of luxury.
A big part of building a home is entertaining guests, so it would be a good idea to stock up on items that would help you do a good job at it. Visit any of the 12 Gourdo's stores to register and hopefully cop some premium culinary tools and other specialty houseware to complete your home.
7. The SM Store
The sheer volume of selection at The SM Store should satisfy both yours and your future hubby's needs. They've really got it all for you and if you're starting from scratch on a brand new life together, you're gonna need all the help you can get. What's even better is, you can mix it up for your guests by choosing products from varying budget levels.
If spending three hours on the road and in the store tagging away is too much to deal with, you can opt to build your wedding registry online. At Knots and Pans, you can choose from a long list of both local and international brands in its roster. Much like online shopping, you might stumble across products you wouldn’t find in local brick and mortar stores. If you want to try something different, the site also has experiences and services as part of its offerings.
