Gift giving shouldn’t be a hassle. We know how thankful you are that your friends and family are helping you kickstart newlywed life with amazing gifts on your big day, so why not make it as easy for them as possible? Even before those gushing thank you notes go out there are a few things you can do to make them feel appreciated, which is why we’ve put together some quick tips to help you build a registry that’s more convenient for your guests.
Give your guests time to pick their gifts for all of your wedding festivities. Guests will want to purchase gifts for your engagement party and bridal shower, so get your registry set-up soon after you’re engaged. Remember, you can always add or exchange gifts later.
Make sure your registry is easily accessible for all of your guests. Whether they live out of town or just have busy schedules that make it difficult to visit a store, guests will appreciate the ease and flexibility of being able to do their shopping on-the-go.
Promote Your Registry
Put your registry on your wedding website and your invitations. Your guess won’t want to spend time searching for this, so make sure its easy to find and just a click away. Zola makes this easy – whether you have an account on The Knot or another wedding website, simply copy and paste your Zola registry link and you’re good to go.
Have Everything in One Place
Make it easy for your guests to comb through all of the items that you have registered for and pick the gift they want to give. Through your Zola Registry, you can keep gifts, experiences, cash funds, and products for other stores all on one page, so it’s easy for your guests to navigate.
Hit a Range of Price Points
Have a well rounded registry when it comes to price tags. You want to make sure every guest has options in their price range so they can get you something you will love and they can afford. Use Zola’s Registry Planner to help you with this process. The planner will not only tell you how many gifts you should add to your registry based off your guest list, but will also recommend the number of gifts you need across various price ranges.
Make Payment Easy
Consider out of town guests and their foreign credit cards (which Zola accepts!), making group gifting available for your large ticket items, and having online or over-the-phone payment options, so your guests are comfortable when purchasing your gift.
