Welcome to our registry! As you know, we currently reside in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, most of the wedding festivities will take place back in the Midwest. It would be difficult for us to receive gifts back in the Midwest and fly them home back to the Southwest. So, we chose to register at Zola due to the shipping flexibility. Zola has the option for gifts to be shipped whenever the couple needs them to be shipped. This will keep us from having gifts sitting at our doorstep while we are away (we will be away the week before and the week after the wedding) as well as save money for checked baggage and extra shipping back to Vegas! Thank you for understanding our situation!
