#ZolaCouple: Meet Becky + Jesse

Here at Zola, we love a creative proposal story. We also love the fact that couples can register for Soul Cycle classes and Gray Malin art gifts cards on Zola. So when Becky Katz, Director of PR at SoulCycle, shared her amazing Gray Malin-themed engagement story with us, she and her fiancé Jesse became an instant #ZolaCouple! This one is a must read, people! Becky, tell us about yourself. I grew up just outside of Boston and love all things related including lobster rolls, Tom Brady, and the accents.

Wedding Registry Hacks

How to get exactly what you want for your wedding is one of the frequently-asked questions from our Zola couples and we completely understand why.

Personalized Notes In order to effectively make your case for why you need that Vitamix or swanky coffee table, add a personalized note on your wedding registry explaining to your guests how each gift will fit into your new life as a couple.
