An Outdoor Lovers Guide to Creating a Wedding Registry

When you create your wedding registry, you’re also creating a vision for the life you plan to live together. For those who have a sense of adventure and love the outdoors, the traditional gifts of china and crystal might not match the vision of the everyday life you would like to create with your future spouse. 

And, that’s okay. 

There’s a whole world of registries beyond houseware and table linens out there. And an adventurous life together starts with an adventurous wedding registry. 

You can expand your wedding registry list to include less traditional items—from outdoor gear, sports equipment, and barbecues to the latest outdoor technologies.

What should you include in your adventurous wedding registry? 

Everyone’s #RelationshipGoals are different. Sit down with your soon-to-be spouse and ask yourselves a few questions, starting with what big adventures you both see for your future, working your way down to ways you can honor your time together daily in small adventurous ways.

Here are a few questions to think about:

  1. What are the big adventures you see for yourself as a couple in the future?
  2. What are the small adventures you see for yourself as a couple in the future?
  3. What are the day-to-day (or typical weekend) activities you currently love to do together or would love to do if you had the right equipment/gear?
Visiting each of the U.S. National ParksRunning a marathon togetherBiking or hiking
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro Skiing/SnowboardingOutdoor patio grilling
Sailing the Greek IslandsPaddleboarding in the oceanPlaying outdoor games
Floating in the Dead SeaCamping under the starsSplashing in the pool, lake, or ocean
Chasing the Northern LightsKayaking in the riverBirdwatching out the kitchen window
Going on a Safari Boating/fishing in the lakeWatching the sunset while sitting by the outdoor firepit  

Next, categorize and list the items that you could add to your wedding registry for the adventures you have planned. Make sure that you list activities and items that you would enjoy together. 

Your registry should include items that:

  • Reflect your relationship 
  • Reflect your lifestyle
  • Are made to last 
  • Make your life easier 
  • Help you create new memories for years to come 

Once you have your list mapped out, it’s time to add some adventurous items to your wedding registry.
