Mastering the Wedding Registry

You may not be planning a wedding this year… yet somehow you are finding yourself scouring the internet on all the dos and don’ts for being a wedding guest. You’ve been invited to 5 different weddings this year – all at different venues, some are using an online rsvp system, some require you to mail in your meal choice.
