Over the years, wedding registries have taken on a completely new form. Couples are seldom picking out fine china and matching monogrammed towels anymore, rather opting for experiences and more custom pieces for their home.
Dinnerware for entertaining guests, happy hour related gifts and honeymoon funds are the currently the most popular type of gifts that couples are registering for.
With so many options for every couple's needs, the registry can be overwhelming.
Here are some of our favorites!
Wayfair recently launched their Wedding Registry. They have beautiful ready-made registries, such as boho, modern and timeless classics to choose from, as well as specially curated collections inspired by Style Me Pretty, Joss & Main and many others.
Wayfair also has a mobile app, which allows you to access and manage your registry from anywhere. You can add new items, remove items you no longer want and track gift status.
They also have the option for group-gifting, so your friends can go in on larger gifts together!
What we love about Zola, is that it is not just a registry. The website has a planner that helps you figure out how many gifts you should add to your registry according to your guest count.
They also have pre selected registries, like Gifts Under $25, Fun and Adventure and Unique gifts.
You can also add monthly wine subscriptions, monthly massage subscriptions, and other experiences including cooking classes, sunset cruises and golf lessons. The best part is that they are customized to your home city.
For the couple that has everything they need, there is now a flower subscription service that sends the recipient beautiful blooms every month or week. Flower Muse offers many varieties of flowers and you can customize packages as well.
Finally, you may not be sure of what you need, or what you want- You may even be thinking of a relocation. Card Avenue is a gift card registry with hundreds of options from restaurants, retailers, online stores and credit card gift cards.
A gift card registry gives you the freedom to take the time to shop around and get the gifts your really want!
These are just some of our favorite places to register. Hope they help with the registry process!
