Get Gifts + Do Good
Registering for wedding gifts is one of the fun and kind of stressful parts of planning a wedding. If you go to a big store, the gun that scans the barcode is pretty cool to use, but debating cream or ivory dinner plates with your soon-to-be spouse can get a bit tiring :)
To do good while receiving gifts, consider registering at Ten Thousand Villages. They have a beautiful assortment of serving dishes, dinnerware, tablecloths, decor, furniture, etc. and the best part is all products are handmade by artisans that are receiving fair pay for their work. Winnipeg has two locations - on Henderson Highway in Northdale Shopping Centre and at Winnipeg Plaza off of Pembina. There are also locations in Altona, Brandon, Steinbach and Winkler.
