Getting engaged and planning a wedding often means that a friend or family member will offer to throw you a bridal shower, and Amazon Wedding Registry will make the gifting part easy for you and your guests.
Wedding registries allow guests to easily choose gifts for bridal showers and weddings that they know the bride and groom would like to receive, and while some may still think picking out your own gifts is poor etiquette, the Emily Post Institute approves this modern convenience.
Nearly every department, big box, and home good store offers wedding registries, so it can be hard to decide where to register. It’s recommended that you register at least one store located near the majority of your guests to accommodate those who would prefer to shop in-store and for last minute morning-of-the-shower purchases, as well as one “store” that offers online shopping to allow guests to ship gifts directly to you, or shop from their couches. Popular stores for registries include Macys, Bed, Bath, & Beyond, Crate and Barrel, Target, and Kohls. While all of these stores offer online shopping, brands and styles are specific and limited to each store, and shipping can add $10 to $15 unless the purchase is $75, $100 or more. The best online wedding registry option for you and your guests is Amazon.com. Amazon wedding registry offers some key advantages over other registry websites.
