You deserve to have it all. 💝
We heard you’re engaged?! Congrats! 😍 Now the fun is really getting started because you’re thinking about a registry and all the cool gifts for your new life together!
Whether you’re looking to score everything of your dreams, get cash gifts, or just love one store in particular, we think you deserve to have the perfect registry. We’re sharing the very best wedding registries and all the awesome perks you (and your guests) get with each!
Here are the top universal registries that have everything in one place:
For the trendy couple that wants it all.
The registry that has it ALL! No, really, they have everything because you can add anything your heart desires – even starting a cash fund for your honeymoon airfare, that new house you’ve been dreaming of, or even…a puppy. 🐶 With Zola, you’ll get so much more than a registry.
You can use your new Zola account to build a free wedding website that easily keeps all of your information in one place, including tracking your guest list and RSVP’s, your genius recommendations & ideas, photo albums, wedding hashtags you want to share with the world, and much, much more.
Some of the perks of your Zola registry will be free shipping and returns, which is super convenient for all your guests. Find something better? You can even return a gift before it ships and Zola won’t tell your guests.
And up to 6 months after your big day, you can still shop the remaining items on your registry with 20% off perks (but fingers crossed you score it all before then! 😉). The Biggest perk? Obviously getting to add whatever you want, whenever you want – now, let’s get started!
2. The Knot
For the couple that likes to give back (but still wants it all).
When using The Knot, you make things super fun! Take their wedding style quiz so they have an idea what type of wedding you’re having (Psst…I did it and once I completed it I was already greeted with coupons and promo codes to some of my favorite stores!)
Plus, they’ll also recommend some of the best wedding venues in your area and in your budget. You can even shop online for your wedding dress or find the perfect bridesmaids dresses.
With The Knot wedding registry, you can choose your most sought after items from tons of popular stores like Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, and so much more! All you have to do is sync your registry with The Knot, using the same email address! As a bonus, whenever guests purchase gifts via your registry on The Knot, they’ll make a donation to whichever charity you link to, at no cost to you or your guests. Cheers to that!
Don’t want any gifts? No problem! You can even set up cash funds for some newlywed adventures like travel airfare, romantic dinners, or, heck, indulge a little and put a couple’s massage on that list!
For the one-stop-shop couple.
You already know Amazon has it all! But when it comes to your wedding registry, it’s a no brainer! Amazon’s Wedding Registry offers the world’s largest selection of unique items, from flatware to flat-screens, tents to teapots, and board games to bath towels.
Plus, you can even add items from other websites using their universal button. You can even shop for wedding party gifts & favors, browse all their stationery and invitations, or find the perfect wedding dress – all from the comfort of your own couch.
The benefits for your Amazon Wedding registry don’t stop there either. You can score any of these bonus gifts when guests purchase qualifying gifts off your registry and never feel bad about adding those splurge items to your list because they even have group gifting, which makes it easy for your friends to contribute to pricier items.
Plus, after your wedding date, non-Prime members (though you can sign up for a FREE 30-day trial here) will receive a one-time 10% promo code valid on anything from your registry. Even better, Amazon Prime members who complete their Amazon Wedding Registry of at least $500 will receive a one-time 20% discount. You’ll also have up to 180 days to return most items from your wedding registry!
Here are some of our other favorite stores with great registry perks:
Trendy home decor from Opalhouse, the timeless Hearth & Hand dishes or even paint for your new, shared space together. The options for your wedding registry are endless with Target’s trendy and unique collections and they even let you add some items from other stores.
Target also offers many other perks, like a 15% OFF completion coupon for the items remaining on your registry after your event date and easy returns so there’s no need to save every receipt—return & exchange unwanted gifts for up to a year.
Are you and your fiance more interested in experiences? Target partnered with Honeyfund which allows your friends & family to contribute to your honeymoon and newlywed experiences as a wedding gift instead!
Use the funds for your well-deserved honeymoon, fun adventures, date nights, yoga classes, or whatever else you and your new spouse are after. The sky’s the limit! Hey, why not try skydiving while you’re at it?! 😏
