Register Here, There and Everywhere!
Anthropologie, West Elm and Best Buy unveil wedding registries.
Anthropologie now has in-store registry service for couples, in addition to their easy online registry or smartphone options. “Our registry customers are mainly couples looking to meld their individual styles into one that will speak to their lives together in a meaningful, very personal way,” says Leigh Johnson, Anthropologie’s senior manager of registry. Bring your fiancé along and peruse a wide selection of bohemian housewares, from the bedroom to the kitchen to the dining room table.
If you already love West Elm, you’ll definitely appreciate the ease of their new registry services. “Our new wedding and gift registry is the perfect tool to help couples design a home to suit their new life together,” says Vanessa Holden, creative director of West Elm. You can choose from any of West Elm’s products, including monogram services, and schedule time for a personal home design consultation. Once you complete your registry, you’ll get discounts on a custom wedding website with Riley & Grey and invitations at Minted. After the big day, you’ll get 10 percent off on anything still on your registry.
Registering is not just about china. Best Buy is making it easy to register for all your tech essentials too. “Electronics and small appliances are as important to today’s newlyweds as silverware and towels,” says Wendy Fritz, Best Buy head of gifting strategy. The registry is easy to make in-store or online, and can be easily synced with your wedding website; once the wedding date passes, you’ll receive a 10 percent off coupon for the remaining registry items. A handy group-gifting feature allows your guests to make contributions to a big-ticket item like a high-definition TV. And did we mention free shipping? Hooray! Best Buy, locations statewide.
