WeddingFutures.com (www.weddingfutures.com), a new online wedding registry site that brings immediate value to happy couples and their financial portfolio, announced today that it has commenced online operations in the United States. A practical alternative to traditional wedding gift registry sites, WeddingFutures.com enables couples to quickly and easily select and register for stocks and mutual funds as wedding gifts. Wedding gift givers can log onto WeddingFutures.com, purchase registered items for the happy couple, and pay by PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover in moments, without the hassles of shipping fees, gift wrapping or worrying if the item will break in transit.
“For the first time, couples-to-be can register for gifts that feather their financial nest and set the foundation for a solid financial future, “ said Keaton Nguyen, founder, WeddingFutures.com. “Gift givers can be confident that their WeddingFutures.com gift – unlike a pricey coffee-maker, which will break or become obsolete — will always be needed, wanted and put to good use by the happy couple, because it will appreciate in value.”
WeddingFutures.com gifts are perfect for couples of all kinds:
- Young couples saving for a house down payment
- Couples marrying later in life who already have sufficient housewares and household items
- Second-married couples with blended families and furniture who want to offset costs of a memorable family vacation or solidify their investment portfolio
- Couples in small city living spaces who lack sufficient room for piles of household appliances
- Couples with kids who want to start a college cost nest egg
- Eco-friendly couples seeking to eliminate the significant carbon footprint generated by wedding gift production, wrapping and shipping.
HOW THE WEDDINGFUTURES.COM GIFT REGISTRY WORKS
At registration couples select from one of five types of portfolio profiles – Conservative, Moderate, Aggressive, Green, or Socially Responsible. Stocks in each risk profile span a broad range of prices to fit every gifter’s budget. “Our pre-created portfolio registries align with the couple’s risk tolerance, so even investment neophytes’ gifts align with the couple’s “financial décor,” said Nguyen.
WHY WEDDINGFUTURES.COM GIFTS?
“Traditional wedding gifts of housewares and household goods are problematic for several reasons. Many are returned outright for cash or store credit. Others are seldom used, and eventually all wear out, break, go out of warranty, become obsolete or decrease in value over time,” said Nguyen. “Envelopes with large amounts of cash or checks are risky gifts because they can easily be misplaced or lost in the confusion of wedding day festivities and honeymoon transit and travel,” Nguyen continued. “By contrast, gifts from the WeddingFutures.com site are securely purchased and transferred online, and can actually increase in value over time, so today’s gift will always fit every couples’ needs now and into the future.”
