Wedding Registry Guide

Creating a universal wedding registry is almost like writing a wish list for your dream home. You want to fill it with items you’ve always wanted, but should also keep in mind the amount of times you are actually going to use them. We’ve partnered with Zola, our go-to online wedding registry, to make a checklist of everything you should be asking for.

Now you know what you need to ask for, and here’s why you should get them from Zola:

–  Hold your gifts: Take control of box overload. Each time you receive a gift, they’ll notify you and give you the choice to ship it now or convert it to Zola store credit to use later. Your call, every time.

–  Everything in one place: Choose the only registry that lets you combine the brands you love, curated experiences, and cash funds on a single page. Simple for you, simple for your guests.

–  Personalized Page: Have a registry that reflects your style. Customize photos, notes to guests and your URL.

–  Group Gifting: Group gifting makes any size gift a possibility. Register for that swanky bar cart or tricked out Vitamix. Let guests contribute any amount or choose increments.

–  Best Registry App: Take Zola on the go. Spot a must-have gift while on your lunch break? Use their barcode scanner to add to your wedding registry, easy and fast.

Zola is giving our readers $25 when you create a registry with them. Make one here.
