First off, we'd like to say that your presence at our wedding is the greatest gift we could ask for. The time, effort and expense of traveling to be with us is something we deeply appreciate in our hearts, and we are so thrilled that we will be able to celebrate this happy occasion with you.
We did have a honeymoon to St Lucia booked but since our family is growing again, we would love to finally buy a house instead. We have been blessed to have a lot of the "essential" home items that a newly engaged couple needs. We hope you find this registry to help us make our goal of buying a house come true! While Matt and I have taken many exciting trips together, we are very much looking forward to our first real adventure as husband and wife. It is because of the lifetime memories we will gain from this that we finally settled on a down payment registry. We greatly appreciate and will fondly remember these gifts for years to come. After all, the memories from this home will last a lot longer than a new set of wine glasses.
We'll do our best to document our progress and include some fantastic photos in your much deserved thank you note. Thanks again and we can't wait to see you at the wedding (or earlier!).
Matthew & Jennifer
