Hi, loves! Emma here. The other day I was chatting with my adorable friend Kat about her upcoming wedding. She’s working on her registry, and it brought me back to when Andrew and I scanned our wedding registry list together. It wasn’t that long ago, and yet so much has changed with wedding registries since then. Picking out one store and choosing only their products is now a thing of the past. If you find a product you love, it can now be added to your universal registry thanks to the awesome folks of MyRegistry.com. In fact, we’ve identified five key reasons why MyRegistry.com will save you time, eliminate frustration and stress, and make the registering fun and easy! Read on to see what we’ve discovered…
How MyRegistry.com Makes It Easier
1. Stop picking favorites
The big question where should we register is no longer one that needs to be asked, thanks to MyRegistry.com. In the past, couples had to choose one or two big box stores and register in person. Now, you don’t have to play favorites: you can pick any store, any product, virtually anything you love, and add it to one central registry. (Note: Can you imagine all the amazing handmade / Etsy finds you could add to it?) You can even register for it all online, in your pajamas, without even leaving the house.
2. Get personalized registry advice
Other commonly asked questions by couples is where to start or what to register for. MyRegistry.com saves you time and frustration by suggesting products from top brands such as Target, Crate and Barrel, Williams-Sonoma, Anthropologie, Best Buy, Pottery Barn, Sur la Table, and many other major retailers. They’ll suggest and showcase popular registry items to get you started. They even offer special pricing and/or free shipping on many items.
3. Include items from anywhere and add anything
We can’t emphasize how important this truly is! If you find it and love it, add it to your universal registry. Why limit yourself to one place? For instance, that handmade favorite you spotted on Etsy? Add it! That cool kitchen gadget you found on Amazon? Put it on the list! You can even add products directly from your smartphone.
4. Merge existing registries
Have you already registered somewhere else? Not a problem! You can merge your existing registry to your MyRegistry.com account. You know those two or three tiny registry enclosures you receive from stores to place inside bridal shower invitations? Now you can just add one! Guests can easily see all of your registries in one central place.
5. Guests can give cash gifts conveniently and securely
If you’d like to register for experience gifts (such as a spa treatment on your honeymoon or a hot air balloon ride), a honeymoon fund, or cash gifts for other needs, it’s easy to do! Guests can send money directly to your account with ease.
