Comprehensive, Modern Registry Options Guide

There are a lot of registry options out there. But what is it that you need? Click the links below to start exploring the registries you find most interesting.

Housewares

The first thing you need to evaluate is what you need to start your life together. If you have never lived together before you may need quite a lot of items to run your household from pots and pans to bed sheets.

Houseware staples, at great prices:

Bed, Bath, and Beyond Registry
Target Registry
Walmart Registry
Kohl’s Registry
JC Penny’s Registry
Sears’  Registry

Of the above registries I was able to find all registry incentives for all but Walmart. Registry incentives change often so I recommend looking into the most current perks.

Does everything above appeal to you? Do you need some housewares and a honeymoon fund? There are some great all inclusive options.

All Inclusive:
Zola
        Zola is a great choice for the bride and groom that want a little bit of everything-from honeymoon fund, to housewares, to experiences, to cash giving. Zola offers group gifting so guests can contribute to a large purchases in any amounts and personalized pages. The couple can even exchange gifts online before they arrive. Zola offers a wide offering of brands but not as wide range of products as Amazon.

NewlyWish
This is very similar to Zola but you can definitely register for off site products.

Amazon
               Amazon is a good user friendly choice for both the bride and groom, and the guest. It doesn’t offer the chic layouts that Blueprint and Zola have but it makes up for that with familiarity and ease of use.

Blueprint
                Blueprint is an elegant way to organize your registry. You can explore different rooms to help give you ideas for what you are looking for and register from select stores such as Crate and Barrell, Anthropology, Amazon, and an assortment of boutique stores. Group gifting and cash giving are available.
