If you are recently engaged, creating an online wedding registry may be on the top of your to do list. Thanks to internet, you no longer need to head to a physical store to create the registry. At the comfort of home, you can pick out your favorite brands and items online. But with so many online registries, it can be a little overwhelming. That’s why we picked the best online wedding registries for you!
Featured in our Best Apps & Websites for Brides, Zola is without doubt one of our favorite wedding registries. You can build your registries with gift items and experiences, including honeymoon fund that can take you to dream places! Zola even lets you build your free website so you can easily share your wedding details with guests. If you have leftover gift items in your registry, you get 20% off for 6 months after your wedding date. With so many benefits, what’s not to love about Zola?
Even if you don’t know where your guests usually shop, Amazon is a safe choice. Amazon has become such household name that chances are, your guests already regularly order deliveries from the giant online retailer. And because it’s such a large platform, Amazon offers extensive gift options that you may not even think of. With the Prime feature, your friends can send you gift items last minute as well. However, Amazon doesn’t allow cash donations, which means that your friends can’t send you honeymoon funds. If you are looking for convenience and straightforward registries, definitely choose Amazon.
3. Bed, Bath & Beyond
Bed, Bath & Beyond has multiple physical store locations so if your guests prefer to head to the store to pick out a gift for you, they absolutely can! Or perhaps some of your guests prefer to check out the item personally first before placing an order online. Their one year return policy lets your guests purchase with confidence and less stress. The retailer also allows cash donations such as honeymoon funds. Other perks include 20% off completion offer, in person registry expert to help you build the registry, price analyzer…and much more!
Target also has physical store locations so it gives your guests flexibility in how to pick and shop for your gift items. Building a registry at Target provides your guests convenience as well, since chances are they are already grocery shopping at their nearest Target store! Similar to Bed, Bath & Beyond, you get one year of free return policy. Another perk Target provides is that any gift item that is over $100 qualifies for group gifting. So your friends can pitch in to a fancy expensive item that you have been wanting without breaking their bank!
5. Blueprint Registry
Blueprint is somewhat similar to Zola in terms of the perks they offer. It allows you to put together a list of items from different retailers and also group gifting options so your friends can contribute to expensive items. What makes Blueprint a one stop registry is that it allows cash donations and honeymoon funds in addition to gift items. If you are just starting to plan your wedding, Blueprint has a guide to help you with planning the wedding. Once you have the wedding details down, you can create a free website for your wedding details. So if you want all your wedding related activities in one place, Blueprint is for you!
6. Crate & Barrel
Even though its scale is not as large as other big name retailers, Crate & Barrel does have some physical store locations. If you are a fan of Crate & Barrel products, you should definitely build a registry with them. They offer some exclusive products that your guests cannot find at other registry. Crate & Barrel also offers design experts who can help with your design challenges. Their perks are similar to other retailers: group gifting option, easy organization of who purchased the gift on the registry, and a 15% off completion discount for 3 months after your wedding day. Crate & Barrel is for those who are into design and unique products.
Besides these 6 registry websites we recommend, there are so many other retailers with wedding registries. If you are interested in more specialized items, look into your favorite brands, such as Pottery Barn, Wayfair, IKEA, West Elm. If you are just unsure which is the best registry for you, just go with the brand or retailer that you usually shop from!
