Amazon Wedding Registry
If you need essentials delivered straight to your door, Amazon is always the way to go. Why not use the same trusted source for go-to products on your wedding registry? Amazon lets you add registry picks from their site, as well as all of the other wedding and engagement gifts you want from around the web. There’s group gifting for those higher-priced items, gift card funds and super quick (and free!) shipping for Prime members on orders over $25. Qualified registrants even get 20% off after the wedding to grab the rest of what’s left on your list. Other bonuses? You can prioritize your gifts from high to low, and you might even get a free gift added in, depending on which registry items your guests purchase! And if you need to return wedding gifts, you have 180 days to do so.
Top pick: If you’ve always wanted an Instant Pot, now’s the time. Add the 8-quart Instant Pot Duo with nine appliance settings to your registry and get ready to dive in on a whole new world of pressure cooker recipes.
Target Wedding Registry
We already know Target has everything we need (and everything we probably don’t need but really want), so go ahead and use your go-to favorite store for your wedding registry. The upsides? You can sign up in minutes and add all of the items from your favorite Target collections like Threshold, Hearth & Hand and Project 62. Plus, there’s gift tracking to keep your thank you cards in order, and you have one year to return gifts, if necessary. And if you didn’t get everything you asked for, a 15% off discount is offered to snag the rest! Check out these wedding thank you gifts for after your big day.
Top pick: A Vitamix (with 10 variable speeds and tamper!) is a big-ticket item that makes mornings smoother. Turn on group gifting to allow multiple guests to contribute!
Walmart Wedding Registry
Want to be sure you’re set up for success with everyday essentials as a newlywed? You can use the Walmart app or go online to do just that. It’s simple to create your registry, add items and then share your list with family and friends through email or social media. As you add to your registry, Walmart will recommend popular wedding registry ideas, but of course, you can still browse online or in the store to add your must-haves.
Top pick: Love to make a meal using the set and forget method? With a quick-seal and spill-resistant lid, three heat settings and removable stoneware for easy cleanup, The Pioneer Woman 7-quart slow cooker is the perfect fit. Plus, thanks to how pretty the floral design is, you can leave it on the counter full time.
Etsy Wedding Registry
If handmade goods, unique wedding gifts and shopping from small businesses is your bread and butter, say hello to the Etsy wedding registry. Whether you’re looking for one-of-a-kind home decor or personal goodies that are as unique as your love, an Etsy wedding registry offers it all. We love Etsy as one of the best places to register for wedding registries because of the customizations behind each gift. You can shop items with the couple’s likeness, last name, wedding date and other special details. Get started by adding our picks for personalized wedding gifts.
Top pick: Here’s a wedding gift to cherish your special day, everyday. This personalized last name sign is perfect for the entryway or bedroom.
Macy’s Wedding Registry
From barware and dinnerware sets to cozy bedding and honeymoon luggage, Macy’s has just about everything you could want to add to your wedding registry. You can set it up for free, and then browse online or head in-store to add items to your registry in real-time. As with many other registries, Macy’s offers an extra 10-25% off to snag other items from your list after the big day. Plus, they add extra perks for using their registry, surprising you with discounts on shoes, clothes and even jewelry to get all of your shopping done in one place. Have you seen these bridal shower favor ideas?

Pottery Barn Wedding Registry
If high quality home and kitchen goods that last a lifetime sound right up your alley, you’re in luck with a Pottery Barn wedding registry. Add goods from sister stores Williams Sonoma, West Elm and Rejuvenation, and get tips on everything to include with Pottery Barn’s registry checklist. And if there’s something on your registry you didn’t receive, Pottery Barn offers 10% off up to six months after your big day. After all, your wedding is the best time to stock up on everything from dinnerware to table linens and entertaining goods you’ll never have to replace. Now, it’s time to pick out the wedding cake topper!
Top pick: Take this as your sign to upgrade your bath towels and add this organic Turkish cotton set to the list. The hardest part is choosing your favorite color!
Anthropologie Wedding Registry
Sure, traditional wedding gifts like a KitchenAid stand mixer earn rightful spots on your registry, but beyond that, it’s important to look for the bold and bright items that encapsulate your style. With an Anthropologie wedding registry, your options are anything but boring. Looking for funky barware to deck out the bar cart? How about playful linens to brighten up the kitchen? You’ll get it all and then some. Bonus: You’ll earn a 15% completion discount after your special day.
Top pick: There’s a lot of fun vase options beyond crystal. We love this Ferrara vase perfect for displaying one bud or an arrangement. Choose from three sizes—or add them all to your list for endless decorating.
The Knot Wedding Registry
While household items are always welcome on a wedding registry, sometimes it’s a better fit to ask for honeymoon funds or to put money toward buying your first house together. After all, those items aren’t exactly found in stores! A wedding registry from The Knot offers a wedding registry for cash funds. Or, add any item from any store, including Anthropologie, Sur La Table, Target and more. The registry keeps everything organized in one place for you, including the option to create a free wedding website to go along with it. It’s wedding planning made easy!
Senior Shopping Editor, Katie Bandurski, is using The Knot registry for her big day. “I love how intuitive adding gifts is, and that you can sync up with other store registries. Plus, it’s easy to add directly to your wedding website. Genius!”
Zola Wedding Registry
Zola is a one-stop-shop for all things wedding planning, making it easy to create a wedding website, design save the dates and create a wedding registry all in one place. Couples get convenient free shipping and free returns, along with a 20% off post-wedding completion discount to grab all of the remaining must-haves on your list. Choose to register for gifts, cash funds or a mixture of both. Hands down one of the best features available is group gifting, which is ideal for those big ticket items (we’re looking at you, Le Creuset). And while setting up your registry, Zola asks a few helpful questions to produce a list of suggested items to kick things off, taking much of the guesswork out of the process.
Top pick: After the big party, it’ll be all about rest and rejuvenation. Be sure you’re cozy with Parachute’s Percale sheet set, featuring breathable, 100% Egyptian cotton for the ultimate rest.

You can also add items from sister stores Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma. Not sure where to start? West Elm’s design experts will help you curate your registry online or in-store. Fabulous!
Williams Sonoma Wedding Registry
For the couple who loves to cook, this is the best wedding registry. Whether you’re hoping to add new cookware, bakeware, tabletop decor or even a few clever items for kitchen storage and organization, Williams Sonoma is your one-stop shop. Create a registry and schedule a private tour of the store, including product demos and expert help, to choose the best items for your kitchen.
