I just got a random (well not really random) bridal registry!!!!

A friend of mine who is a BeautiControl consultant had a friend that is getting married in June. I told my friend that I would count her referral as booking a show for a Mystery Host Show I have going right now. She told her friend and she registered!!!!

I am so psyched!!!! The only downside is that the happy couple opted not to be contacted so I can't even introduce myself. They are all in Michigan and I am in Germany. There won't be an actual Bridal show, and I don't even have to do anything so I feel like I should reward the couple as well as the referrer.


Any ideas what to give as a Thank You without being able to contact her??????

Well, since your friend knows her, you could pass something along to her through your friend.

One suggestion I've heard is that when people elect not to be contacted by the consultant, you go on their registry as a guest and order them something like an "i-Slice" and include a little message congratulating them and telling them they can use the handy tool to open their wedding gifts. You'd also then get their address. But I don't know how couples would view this since they made the choice to not be contacted. Personally, as long as the consultant didn't continue to contact me (as the bride), I would think the gift was a nice gesture.

The i-slice is a great idea for all the opening they are about to be doing!!! So, you think I should do that immediately???? Maybe I will ask my friend if they would appreciate that type of gift. Or I can suggest it for her to take to the actual Bridal Shower???

If your friend thinks it would be ok to just send it to her now, I would maybe do it now. Tell her congrats and maybe even let her know if she needs suggestions on other things to register for, she's more than welcome to call you. When is the wedding?

Well, she can't call me because I am overseas, but email is just as good....and I get the point.

This is the cool part, the wedding is in June so the latest time to close the show is September. All she has registered for so far is stones!!! And from all previous years, September is Stoneware Sale Month!!! I won't tell her that until it is confirmed tho!! I wish I could help her build that registry list!! I really think she would like our other stuff too!!! Maybe I need a rep in Michigan to do an actual show......nahhh that would be contacting her too. Crap this is tough!!!! LOL.

I got the 'All Clear' from the referrer to send my Bride a Thank-You gift!! I sent her the i-Slice to open her gifts!! The 100 character limit on the message was difficult to overcome! I didn't even get to tell her that we have so much more than Stoneware to offer and that I coulld help her with those choices. I guess I should just be happy with the free business!!

What should I give to the referrer as a gift for bringing me this 'workless' business??

Tina,
That's a great idea!! How would I do that since it's all ordered directly from the website. I am not actually doing a Bridal Shower. I can give her an additional gift with any other order??

I haven't quite figured out how to do it yet since I don't have any registries yet but I thought maybe I could send that person a $10 check or something like that. If anyone has any other suggestions please feel free to to share!

I really appreciate the help, Tina!! I just can't send someone a check though, because I have a German bank account over here. I don't have checks for my business account.

I think I will stick with $10 off her next order with me, unless someone else comes up with something really cool!!

You could do your own Gift Certificate adn send her one of those!
