One of the most fun steps of wedding planning is creating your wedding registry! Historically, this has meant registering with one or two big-brand stores to select the items you'd appreciate receiving as wedding gifts. As weddings have evolved over the past few years, so have the options for registries. As much as we love the classic options such as Macy’s, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Target, these just aren't a match for every couple.
Whether you've already furnished your first home, prefer experiences over material things, or simply have unique interests, there's a wedding registry perfectly suited for you! Check out some of these popular alternatives to wedding gift registry stores!
