A Bride Tells All: Everything You Need to Know About Your Wedding Registry

Confession: I started our Zola wedding registry the morning after we got engaged. I know that seems crazy, but my fiancé and I knew exactly which part of wedding planning I’d be most excited for long before he popped the question last August. As a home editor, I’ve spent most of my career online shopping (for work, of course), searching for luxe bedding, fun throw pillows and pretty plates. I’ve been picking and choosing favorites for years, and now I was psyched that it was finally my turn to shop for myself. And not so surprisingly, it was tougher than I thought it would be. But I did learn some super helpful tips in the process that proved to be the key ingredients to nailing our perfect-for-us registry. You’re making the registry for your future home, not your current one. When you’re looking around your tiny apartment or starter home, it can be hard to see the need for twelve place settings or a 10-cup coffee maker. My mom told us to keep in mind …

Your to-do list is growing by the day so let’s get down to business – make sure you set up your wedding registry as soon as possible!

How-To: Build and Receive Your Dream Wedding Registry

How to get exactly what you want for your wedding is one of the most frequently-asked questions by our Zola couples. We completely understand why—it’s not every day you get to ask for anything you want from your nearest and dearest (and coworkers, family friends, great aunts we’ve only met once, etc.). So here’s our expert advice on how to get the most out of your wedding registry. Ask and You Shall Receive Don’t be shy! First-timers may feel a bit of pressure to register for what they think they’re supposed to register for instead of registering for what they actually want. You may feel pressure to get your mother’s favorite china, for example, or the bread box your grandmother swears by. But ask yourself what you want and what you’ll use. Are you mostly gluten-free? Then what’s the point of a bread box? Sit with your fiancé, take a look around your apartment or house and hone in on what you want and need. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Want a …
