Alternative Wedding Gift Registry

SimpleRegistry is changing the way engaged couples create and share their wedding registry. With cool and unique tools that make registering for gifts fun and personable, you can create a registry that is reflective of your own personality rather than the latest inventory of the big box retail stores.

What Do You Like to Do?

If you love mountain biking, sailing, wine tasting, cooking, rock climbing, or anything else under the sun, you can register for it thanks to SimpleRegistry!

How It Works

o Add Anything to a Registry — Any item from any store on one registry. Even non-tangible stuff like season tickets, indoor skydiving sessions, or a donation to a favorite charity. Literally *anything* that can be thought up can be added to a registry.

o Split Pricey Items to Smaller Portions — Let’s face it, there probably aren’t many people that will buy someone that awesome $2,000 camera all on their own. However, almost everyone has at least 20 friends that would be willing to chip in $100 each. It’s easy to allow for group-gifting at any price level.

o Setup is Easy (and Fun!) — Customizing a registry is easy with purpose-built tools like the SimpleAdder (bookmarklet for adding any item from any website with one-click), free Mobile App (scan barcodes or snap a photo of anything and add it to the registry), and Instant Registry for those in a hurry (pre-made lists of professionally curated items).

o Let Others Suggest Cool Items — Why should couples have to think up everything they’ll need on a registry? Registry creation is crowdsourced with their new Item Suggestions feature. Easily send people (with the best taste) a custom version of our SimpleAdder tool that allows them to suggest items from any website in the world. Couples have complete power over which suggested items to add – and which to ignore.

o All Gifts Redeemed as Cash — When the wedding is over all gifts are redeemed directly as cash for the ultimate in flexibility. Newer model of that camera since the registry was created? Different color of that blender desired? No problem! Couples tell SimpleRegistry when they’re ready to receive their gifts and they’ll receive a check or deposit funds directly to their checking or PayPal account.

o Saying “Thank You” Made Easy — Instantly generated list of all guests, the gift(s) they provided, amounts, and their full contact information.

*EB TIP: After your bridal shower (or wedding), guests love to see you enjoying their thoughtful gifts. So… after you’ve used that mountain bike or attended a cooking class, make sure you TAKE A PHOTO and send it to them with your thank you note! They will love to know their gift was appreciated.
