How to Register for Anything Online and In-Store

Posted January 16, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

The wedding registry is an exciting – and fun – part of planning your wedding. A wedding registry is a gift list curated by the couple and given to guests (typically as a mention in your bridal shower invitation) as potential gift ideas. From a gift-givers point of view, a wedding registry is a brilliant idea: why guess when you can buy gifts you know the couple will love? A wedding registry removes all doubt and identifies specific gifts the couple has carefully selected together.

In the past, wedding registries were limited to select big box chains only. You had to pick a store that offered a registry service and limit your gift choices on items they carried. But now, the wedding registry is different thanks to the folks at SimpleRegistry! They have created a new, modern alternative to the traditional wedding registry that allows couples register for anything they want! Read on to find out how you can register for anything online (and in-store)…
