15 most popular registry gifts for 2018 wedding season By Elly Rowe January 9, 2018 2:33 am 01/09/2018 02:33am WASHINGTON — The years pass and the seasons change, but the tradition of the wedding registry remains. See photos of Sunday’s 75th annual Gold Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Couples-to-be share their wish lists, loved ones grant those wishes, and the newlyweds get what they need for a fresh start. That time-honored tradition, of course, has evolved somewhat. The internet makes it convenient for all involved. And demographically, a growing number of couples-to-be already living together (with their possessions already “merged”) has meant that appliances aren’t the wish-list sure thing they once were. Instead of a kitchen gadget, a couple might want something that provides an experience, said Jennifer Spector of Zola , an online wedding registry. “The gift of travel — for example, an Airbnb gift card — is something that newlyweds can treasure long after their wedding date,” said Spector, Zola’s director of brand marketing and “resident newlywed-at-large.” That said, requests for physical gifts still dominate registries — and one appliance, um, stands above the pack. “The KitchenAid Stand Mixer will be the most wanted gift by engaged couples until death do us part,” Spector said.

Hundreds of Indonesian couples ring in the new year at mass wedding JAKARTA (Reuters) - Hundreds of Indonesian couples celebrated New Year’s Eve on Sunday night by tying the knot in a mass wedding in the capital Jakarta. Nearly 450 couples gathered in a large tent in the city center just hours before midnight to pray with their families before signing marriage certificates. Government officials oversaw each brief ceremony. “We wanted an unforgettable experience and we’re so happy that we decided to participate today,” said Hartiningish, a 38-year-old East Javanese bride, while a live band played a set of traditional and pop music in the background. Her husband, Ricky Rangga, 30, said the couple was grateful to the city administration for making the wedding possible. Many couples wore matching colors and colorful traditional Indonesian outfits, with some brides donning elaborate headdresses and grooms carrying traditional daggers called keris. Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan congratulated those taking the plunge and said the city would now host the event every New Year’s Eve. The city government raised donation funds to pay for token gold dowries for the couples to exchange.
