You're engaged! Mazel tov! Congratulations! Here are the three best wedding registries to sign up for



You're engaged!  Yay!  Mazel tov!  Congratulations!  Showers and showers of happiness upon you and your spouse and your families.

Okay.  Now what?

No doubt, you've got a long list of things to do before your wedding, and some of them are tedious and some of them are awesome.  Among the list of much funner pre-marital must-dos are registering for gifts. I consider registering for gifts a way of behaving thoughtfully to your guests; for the guests who want to give you something more personal than a check, it's a genteel way of telling them that these are things that you need to set up your new household. It's also a great way of ensuring that you don't end up with 14 Lenox punch bowls.

Retailers make out like bandits over weddings, and they will give brides and grooms all sorts of nice gifts and freebies to entice you to create your wedding registry on their website.

Here are (in my humble opinion) the three BEST registries that you can sign up for and their accompanying perks.  You have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain by signing up for all three initially, even if you end up not using all of them, and each signup takes just a few minutes.  Make sure you add at least one item to each registry (you can always remove it later) when you sign up to make sure you have a "placeholder;" sometimes websites do housekeeping and wipe out empty registries before couples have a chance to fill them up with their wishlist.


#1: Amazon Wedding Registry (now with even BETTER benefits).  Amazon is not only the king of retail; they currently have the best wedding registry program, especially if you're an Amazon Prime member.

Sign up for an Amazon Wedding Registry here (and add at least one item as a "placeholder") and check out these benefits:
  • Amazon Wedding Registry 10%/20% Completion Discount:  A one-time 10% discount for non-Prime members, (up to $100 on $1,000 worth of items,) and 20% discount for Amazon Prime members, (up to $500 on $2,500 worth of items,) is offered on select items from your registry, good for up to 90 days after your event date. (The Prime 20% off Wedding Gift promotion will be limited to Prime customers who are members of Campus, Fresh, Prime Members with Shipping Benefits, Prime members with Mom benefits. This excludes trial, Student and Invitee members.) Details here.
  • Bonus Brand Completion Bonuses:  Since these tend to rotate over time, the current offers are listed here.  At the time of this posting, you can get valuable gifts for completing a Lenox, Nordic Ware, All-Clad, Calphalon, Global/Scanpan, Nesspresso, Le Creuset, and Vitamix registry on Amazon.
  • Universal Registry Capability:  Add items from other websites to your registry with the Amazon Universal Registry Button.


#2: Target Wedding Registry


  • Target Wedding Registry 15% Completion Discount:  15% discount on everything left on your registry after the big day.  This is not including your 5% RedCard discount. (If you don't have a RedCard, get one now.)
  • Bonus Brand Completion Bonuses:  Since these tend to rotate over time, the current offers are listed here.  At the time of this posting, you can get valuable gifts for completing a GreenPan, Keurig, Circulon, 10 Strawberry Street, Corningware, Joseph Joseph, Thirstystone, Luigi Bormioli, J.A. Henkels, Cambridge, Hamilton Beach, Nespresso, Ninja, Peugeot, and Shark registry on Target.
  • Group Gifting:  group gifts are an easy way for friends and family to chip in to purchase a single registry item and Target has a pretty nifty way of managing them. Details here.
  • Easy returns and exchanges up to a year after your event.
  • Add items from any other site (like Amazon).

Sign up for a Bed Bath & Beyond Wedding Registry here (and add at least one item as a "placeholder") and check out these benefits:
  • BB&B Wedding Registry 10% Completion Discount:  Though they don't say so on their website, Bed Bath & Beyond will mail a 10% completion coupon good for up to 3 months after the wedding, and will also host a completion event, a designated day when you take 20% off without a coupon in-store.
  • Bonus Brand Completion Bonuses:  Since these tend to rotate over time, the current offers are listed here.  At the time of this posting, you can get valuable gifts for completing a Mikasa, Lenox, Noritake, Oxo, Anolon, Calphalon, All-Clad, Cuisinart, KitchenAid, Keurig, Omega,  registry at BB&B.
There are other registry benefits for these three retailers that I haven't mentioned here, because I think these are the really significant ones.  Make sure you sign up as soon as you can after you get engaged, and let the perks roll....
