Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use Zola?

Because we make everything easy. With our super helpful registry, free wedding websites, affordable invites, and expert advice, we’ll help you two and your guests throughout your wedding planning journey and into newlywed life.

How is Zola free to use?

“Free” and “wedding” rarely appear in the same sentence, so we get this question a lot. We’re a store and like any online retailer, we make money on the products we sell. So we offer couples free tools to help streamline their wedding planning.

What’s the easiest way to get started?

There’s no right or wrong way to plan, so dive in wherever you’d like. Many of our couples build their free wedding website first, while some get a head start on their registry. We make it easy no matter where you begin your journey. For more guidance, visit our Expert Advice section.

If we’re planning a simple wedding, do we still need Zola?

We may be a touch biased, but… definitely! Whether you're saying “I do” in front of 20 people or 400, hosting an intimate reception or an epic dance party, there are still logistics to plan and we want to help with every single one of them.

Do we need a wedding date before we start planning?

Nope! You can take a crack at your wedding website, your registry, or even your guest list. Once you have a date, let us know and we’ll make sure you’re running on schedule. Not sure how to set your wedding date? Visit this Expert Advice post.

What if we’re registering at other stores AND Zola?

That’s totally fine! We filled our store with 50,000 of the best gifts, but for those special things we don’t have, you can add them to your registry from any online store. That way, guests can shop all your gifts in one place.
