Top Wedding Registries
April 14, 2010
Registering for your wedding gifts shouldn't be a bore! Here are some of the
best wedding registries we think will help you make the most of your wish list.
Most of these places are known nationwide and have the option to purchase gifts
online. This is especially convenient for family and friends who live out of
town, or for guests who just prefer to shop online from their comfy chair.
Remember, it never hurts to register for more than one registry - have fun
Let Macy's make your registering easy with their registry checklist, which is divided into different categories like dining, electrics, bed and bath, home decor. It allows you to check off which items you want from each category and print it out. Enjoy refreshments and get a free gift while you are registering at Macy's with their Sip and Scan events.
Bed Bath and Beyond's wedding registry offers tools like a task manager to help you keep track of things to do, a guest list manager, seating arranger, a timeline tool, a budget tool, and even a gift tracker in case you forgot who gave you that toaster oven. When your guests shop in-store, gift packaging is complimentary. For each friend you get to register with them, they send you a $25 Referral Award to use toward any in-store purchase of $50 or more.
Williams-Sonoma often has "The Store is Yours" events for registrants, where they offer time in the store after hours so you have a chance to learn more about their products. You also can receive a special gift from some of their vendors simply by adding a select amount of their branded products to your registry. In addition, you receive a second gift after the items are purchased.
Target has a great wedding registry that also gives you the option to sign up using the same information as your Amazon account. They also constantly have good deals like free shipping on certain items, or free shipping on items over a certain amount. If you need to return something but don't have a receipt, don't worry, all you have to do is print out your Gift Purchase Log at any store kiosk.
5) Crate and Barrel
Crate and Barrel has a great wedding registry that allows you to browse the most popular items that other wedding couples are registering for. They also offer a savings of 10% on your unfulfilled items after your wedding. They allow you to share your registry on Facebook, so now guests can access it right on your profile page.
The greatest thing about Amazon is that they have everything! They have tons of tools to make registering a cinch! One of these cool tools is a thank you list that shows everything that has been purchased, and also shows the sender's mailing address. They also give you an option to add a Universal Registry Button, which allows you to add products to your registry from any website and lets you keep track of everything in one place.
