How to Register for Gifts you'll Love with ZOLA

Registering for wedding gifts should be one of the most fun + stress-free aspects of your wedding planning. And, while some stores + registries take out the fun part, or severely limit what you can add to your wish list, Zola is the smarter wedding registry that easily lets you combine brands you love with curated experiences and cash funds – all on a single registry page!

Since we know deciding what to register for can be tricky, we thought it would be helpful for us to share a few tips on how to register for gifts you’ll always use – striking the perfect balance between those fun + trendy items you’re coveting now and the tried and true staples you will have for a lifetime.

Below, you’ll learn how we’d find that harmony + you’ll see firsthand our top registry picks. It’s all so simple, thanks to Zola. From creating the perfect, personalized registry, to feeling rest-assured that your guests can use + navigate your page with ease, we’re pretty sure you’ll agree that Zola is the perfect place to create the best-ever wedding gift wish list for your biggest + best of days.



Registry Tip #1: Start with the trendy items first. Decide between the two of you what fun, specialty items you’d like to register for. Maybe a metallic bar set or some patterned serving pieces? Get these selects into the mix so you can then see what essentials you’ll need to include.

Tip #2: Opt for timeless bedding + textiles that you’ll enjoy for years to come. A house isn’t a home unless you can feel relaxed. We suggest adding classic, but quality, pieces – to channel your inner zen master – to your wedding registry!
