20% Newlywed Discount after your wedding
Save big after the big day, with 20% off anything that's still on your registry. The best part? You can use our Newlywed Discount as many times as you like, for six months. Think of it as a wedding gift from everyone at Zola — and the perfect start to newlywed life.
It's a good idea to go through every room. Start with the kitchen. Add appliances, cookware, drinkware, and dinnerware. And china is always a classic registry gift! Now for the bedroom. Ready for new bedding? Maybe upgrade your bathroom towels.
Don't forget the humbler items as well — those useful items that will make a real difference to your everyday life. Think about a stylish trash can, a set of new knives, wine glasses for every occasion, mixing bowls, and storage solutions. Trust us!
Absolutely! It's a great way for your guests to share in this amazing moment. With a Zola registry, you'll find the brands you love, add gifts from literally anywhere, AND create cash funds — for your honeymoon, a house downpayment, or… anything at all.
Remember, you can upgrade what you already have. Here's a good way to get started. Take a walk around your home and notice what is missing or what you've been meaning to replace. This could be a good moment to replace those mismatched plates or that “tempramental” coffee maker you've had since college.
And if you really don't need anything new, think about our experiences. Get a monthly coffee or wine subscription. Join a weekly meal club. Elevate date night with a cooking class, foraging expedition, or boat trip.
There are also gift cards for travel and accommodation, home decor and renovations, pet care, cooking classes, fitness classes… plus gift cards for all your favorite big box stores and online retailers.
Whether you're in Austin or Atlanta, Los Angeles or Las Vegas, we've got great experiences you can add to your registry to keep the celebrations going long after your wedding day. A few of our favorites include whale watching in Boston, a paddleboard yoga class in Miami, a behind-the-scenes Broadway tour in New York, and the Chicago craft brewery tasting in a barrel bus. And if you're honeymooning in Hawaii, try a helicopter tour or go nighttime snorkeling with manta rays.
Oh yes. Melissa from Team-Z, our expert wedding advisors, has lots of great thoughts here. “I recommend registering for 12 sets of plates/flatware. This may seem excessive, but one day your tabletop items will be discontinued and you'll be glad to have some backup if some break or go missing.” She also recommends registering for at least two new sets of sheets and bath linens.
Be specific. Instead of creating a general cash fund, create smaller funds for particular items. For example, instead of a honeymoon fund, why not set up a fund for your flights, for a romantic dinner, and scuba diving lessons. It helps guests really feel connected to your plans (and you can tell them all about it when you write them a thank you note!)
It's never too early! It's always worth having a few items on your registry once you get engaged as your friends and family might just want to treat you when they hear your big news! Then, keep topping up your registry, especially just before your wedding shower and your wedding itself.
One of the most common mistakes we see is when couples simply don't have enough gifts on their wedding registry. Guests love options, so make sure to include plenty of options for them to choose from!
Also, remember to include gift options in a wide range of prices. Luckily Zola has you covered, from affordable options to the bigger items. You can always add and edit gifts later, as well as exchange them or convert to credit if you change your mind.
One of the perks of being a universal registry is that you can add gifts from anywhere, from big box stores to home decor from local artisans. And we've got gifts for every price point. Honestly, creating your registry might be the most fun part of the wedding planning process.
This is a great moment to upgrade your camping and hiking equipment. Think tents, chairs, a camping stove, flasks, and coolers. You'll even find outdoor games and activities and portable speakers if you want to have fun in the great outdoors.
There are some obvious things here you've probably thought of — the Dutch Oven, the stand mixer, the flatware. But one of the most popular gifts recently has been the outdoor pizza oven, capable of making authentic, delicious pizza in just 60 seconds. It's great for date night or hosting a post-wedding get-together. Pair that with a gas or charcoal grill and you'll be the envy of your neighbors.
For another romantic foodie gift, try a picnic basket. We love the classic wicker baskets that have everything you need for an impromptu al fresco feast.
Then there are our foodie experiences. There are at home baking classes, in person cooking classes, pizza tours, and gift cards for a special meal for two.
Start with a stylish bar cart. They come in all sizes, price points, and styles, from Art Deco to industrial chic. Then move onto the basics — a cocktail shaker and set of bar tools, like measuring glasses, bottle openers, and jiggers. Now, onto the glasses. Now's the perfect moment to get the right items for the right drinks, whether you want to serve Martinis or Margaritas the way bartenders intend or you want to decant wine and whiskey.
And if you're really serious about your home bar, we've got you covered with top-quality gadgets like wine preservations systems and purifiers and carafes that aerate and chill.
Yes! Some of our most popular gifts are for our furry friends. There are luxury pet beds (no guarantees they won't just sleep on yours though), the most stylish litter boxes you've ever seen, and all the treats and toys they could want. Plus, gift cards to big name pet stores.
Guests just want to be able to share in this wonderful moment with you but any gift that lets them know they're setting you up for the next chapter of your lives together is perfect. That's why gifts for the home are always so popular, along with gifts they know will stand the test of time (because when else will they get the chance to buy a piece of beautiful crystal or high-end kitchenware?). Luggage is another winner — there's something symbolic about the start of a new journey. But most important of all are gifts that celebrate who you are as a couple — your interests, your ambitions, and what matters most to you.
A great gift (and totally unique to the two of you) is a wedding album. A guest can buy it for you and then you create it yourself once you've got your beautiful wedding photos. Our free album wizard can help you create an album as personal as the memories inside, along with all our customization options (like size, materials, number of pages, etc). It's also a great gift if you're looking for something special to give your wedding party or in-laws to say thanks for all their help.
Another great way to make those gifts extra unique is to think about monogramming. Add your initials to your luggage to make your honeymoon extra special or commemorate your wedding day with engraved silverware or barware.
Zola was so easy to use, and offers a generous discount for items still on your registry. The customer support was A+
I’d recommend Zola to ANYONE and everyone getting married. They have literally everything - plus the 20% post married discount is insane!
Zola had everything we were looking for. The cash funds were specifically designed for our busy life and honeymoon needs. We loved being able to ad...
