Denver, CO, August 08, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Shea McGrath, Denver Wedding Photographer, agrees with Best Buy's survey from Wakefield Research, which sees a growing increase with technology requests for wedding registries. According to a survey of brides and grooms, 74% of those married within the last five years consider requesting hi-tech gifts (such as flat-screen television, camera or video camera, a tablet, smart thermostat, or wireless sound system) acceptable on a wedding registry.
“I think it is mainly because we are from the millennial generation. We were raised on technology as small children and have adapted our lives around the conveniences of technology,” noted McGrath. “Additionally, I see technology gifts are more common than traditional gifts such as chinaware,” added McGrath.
"Technology is of course ever present today and couples are really starting to include these tools in their weddings – including their gift registries," said Wendy Fritz, head of gifting registry for Best Buy, which began its own registry in February. "It's no longer about a fancy china place setting, it's about a flat screen TV for a new home or a digital camera for the honeymoon."
Most of those surveyed (74%) said they would prefer a useful gift such as a tech product over a sentimental gift. For Best Buy's survey, Wakefield Research got input about wedding gifts from more than 1,000 brides and 1,000 grooms from May 29 to June 12, 2015. Half the respondents were married five years ago or less, the other half 20 years ago or more.
