2016 is finally here, and for many of you, that means your wedding is just a quick, few months away. As you continue to plan this momentous occasion, take a look below at some of the latest trends in the registry space for 2016. Forewarning: it may take some convincing to tell your mom it’s the new normal to register for a wine-of-the-month club.

Control When Your Gifts Ship
Registries are changing with the times now, too. Zola lets couples control when and where gifts ship. Send gifts immediately, hold them for later, or swap them for credit. Say goodbye to box pile up and yes to swapping an outdated china pattern from your Aunt Betty for a cooking class.
Stop with the series of Venmo transfers among friends. While you may feel uncomfortable registering for a $600 vacuum or a Vitamix, get up to speed on the latest trend – group gifting. Yes we said it. Let your family or closest friends all go in on that pricey gift. Even better on Zola, couples can mark any gift as a group gift no matter how big or small.
Register for Gifts You’ll Really Use
Do you love to cook? Enjoy a glass (or two) of wine after work? Zola allows you to register for subscriptions like Blue Apron, Club W and Brew Club. While your mom may say you HAVE to register for fine china, we say take matters into your own hands and get what you really want. And hey, if there’s no way around that china, good thing Zola has virtual exchanges so mom may never have to know…
Add Gifts On the Go
Did you ever think that you could add gifts to your registry while you were waiting in line at the grocery? Or while you’re waiting for the subway? Think again. With Zola’s apps for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch you can add those martini glasses you’ve been eyeing while you’re at Happy Hour. With this much control, now all of you need to worry about is that your fiance doesn’t exchange all of your dinnerware for a foosball table.
Sitewide Completion Discounts
While some registries will give you a small discount on the rest of your items on your registry, Zola gives you 10% off the entire site for the following year. It’s our (small) way of thanking our couples.
