While there are no shortage of “to do’s” from the very beginning of wedding planning, one that I highly recommend getting a jump on is starting your wedding registry. Family and friends might like to get you an engagement gift, so it’s a great idea to at least get your registry off the ground and add a few things to it right off the bat. You can then continue to add to and refine it over time!
Today’s sponsor, Macy’s, is one that’s near and dear to my heart, because it’s where John and I chose to register. For us, it was pretty much a no-brainer, since Macy’s is the perfect one-stop shop for all things wedding. And the more we learned about their registry, the more excited we were — they have some incredible registry benefits, like exclusive discounts (20% off women’s shoes, 15% off jewelry, 20% off luggage…) and 15% completion savings for six months after your wedding! By far the most exciting benefit, though, was the Star Rewards program — as guests purchase gifts from your registry, a certain percentage is added to a Macy’s gift card, sent to you after your wedding! John and I had more than $200 on our gift card, which was perfect for purchasing a few things that didn’t get snapped up by guests.
From china to chairs, vacuums to sheets, Macy’s has an incredible array of products to choose from and amazing partnerships with brands like Kate Spade, Le Creuset, Vera Wang, and Martha Stewart that make everything feel curated. These were just a few of the goodies we put on our own registry:
Of course, Macy’s is about much more than registries! Their Wedding Shop has a “shop by occasion” feature where you can hunt for the perfect bridal shower, bachelorette party, or rehearsal dress. They have accessories, too, including a whole “something blue” section! Wedding guests, grooms, and mamas can shop within the experience, as well. Just for fun, here are a few of our favorite wedding looks pulled from Macy’s racks:
I’d love to hear: Are you registered at Macy’s? What’s your favorite item from your registry?
