Creating a wedding gift registry is not easy. In fact, it can be very confusing and time consuming for the bride & groom-to-be who are not familiar with what a new household requires.
In the West, couples tend to live together before marriage, therefore, they have an idea of what a new household may require.
In the Arab world, this is totally different. Arab couples DO NOT live together before marriage. This is a social taboo. In fact, some (in very conservative societies) would not have seen each other before their wedding night.
So, putting together a wedding gift list may not be as easy as it sounds.
If you don’t know anything about gift registries and don’t even know what you want or where to sign for (particularly if you are living in Amman – Jordan), here is everything you need to know.
