Here is a list of the top 20 national wedding registries in the United States. If you are getting married, you are going to want to use this list to easily set up your wedding registry making shower gift, and wedding gift, shopping easy for your friends and family!
Planning a wedding? Know someone who is? People prefer to buy shower and wedding gifts that they know the bride and groom can use, so wedding registries have become very popular. Below is a list of wedding registries. Besides preventing alike gifts – the registry will track purchases to avoid duplicates – many wedding registries offer extra discounts, gifts or free shipping!
My nieces have all taken a walk down the aisle the last few years (wish Sonny-boy would get his butt in gear). They all signed up for wedding registries for shower gifts, as well as wedding presents. While no one “owes” you a gift when you invite them to a wedding or a shower, the truth is most people will bring one! We want to help a young couple get a start on their new married life, and not end up in debt trying to afford a few comforts.
As a buyer, wedding registries help me understand what the couple would like: their taste, what they still need, I won’t buy something Aunt Edna is also buying, etc.
Yes, a wedding registry can be time-consuming to set-up, but the lack of duplicates, slipping a word to your mom so Aunt Louise knows what to buy (that’s how we did it before registries) make the time spent on building a registry worthwhile.
I do not advise anyone to begin a registry at every store on this list. Pick two or three stores you are comfortable with, that are affordable for your guests, and that have a good selection of merchandise you can actually use. While I have listed national registries, do not ignore specialty stores in your immediate area. One of my nieces had a nice selection picked out at a local fine china store, and I purchased her several shower gifts there (that is nice for folks who are local).
Be sure to read all the terms of service for whatever wedding registry you sign up for as the details are in the fine print!
