Are you the type of couple that has a bucket list filled with adventurous excursions? Hikes in the Himalayas, maybe? Sea kayaking in Baja? Road tripping through all the national parks? Or maybe the two of you love to spend summer evenings on the side of a lake, roasting marshmallows over a fire, and curling up to sleep in a cozy tent. Or perhaps you're city dwellers that just have a hankering to dip your toes into some outdoor adventures (low key and relaxed, thank you very much).
If you're a newbie to the outdoor aisle, one of the best times to try out activities and gear is when you're registering for your wedding. Thankfully, registries these days are more than just fancy china and silver (as much as we do love a pretty table setting). It's all about how you really want to spend time together. And if that means pitching a tent in the wilderness, then by all means, go for it!
Outdoorsy gear can range from the totally practical (shelter from the elements) to the cutest, highly Instagram-able accessories (fireside panini maker, anyone?). The main thing for a romantic outdoor getaway is to be comfortable and cozy. That means a tent that will keep you warm and dry and fun cooking gear for those nights around the fire. And it's not just limited to accessories. Consider putting that pair of snowboards or canoe on your registry. Even if it's more on the pricey side, some of your guests might love to chip for a group gift that's really reflective of your true loves and interests.
