My Registry: A Truly Universal Wedding Registry
When it comes to choosing your wedding registry, there are tons of options out there. From store specific, to experiential, to universal wedding registries, couples have more options than ever when deciding where to send their guests to get them a gift. Today I wanted to share a resource you may already be familiar with… and if you're not, well then you're in for a treat!
Allow me to introduce you to My Registry!
No longer do you have to feel stuck registering with a few chosen big-box stores… thanks to My Registry, you can easily add items from all your favorite stores, regardless of whether or not they have a wedding registry service! You can even add cash gifts to your registry so your guests can all throw in on a big-ticket item, or for you to use on a more experiential type of gift. You can even register for cash to put towards your honeymoon or a down payment on your first home together.
My Registry allows you to sync or link the store registries you've already created, or you can seamlessly add from any of their network of partner stores. I love how flexible it is! Since My Registry lets you import your existing registries from 24 major retailers to create one giant gift list, it also allows you to take advantage of individual store registry benefits and completion discounts, all while managing all of your gift lists together in one place. I'd say that's a pretty sweet bonus!
Use the My Registry app for your smartphone to add items to your wedding registry on the go. Say you're browsing in one of your favorite stores and you come across something you absolutely can't live without… just scan the product's barcode with your phone to add the item to your registry! BONUS: Being able to add items from anywhere means you can also save your guests money by finding the best price before adding an item to your registry list. Budget savvy for the win!
When it comes to the cash gifts on your registry, My Registry makes giving totally secure. Your guests can conveniently send you cash gifts in any denomination by using a credit card or a PayPal account. Unlike some of the other gift registry services out there, MyRegistry.com has no member fees on cash gift funds! My Registry gives you an official place to collect the funds from your guests via PayPal, which has a standard service charge of 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction when money is transferred into your cash gift account. Your guests will only have to pay a nominal non-refundable handling fee to My Registry for providing the Cash Gift Fund Services and to ensure completion of the transaction.
