Have the Wedding of Your Dreams with Wedding Funding and Online Registries!

Have you considered wedding funding in lieu of a traditional wedding registry?  The internet has completely changed the way engaged couples can now register for their wedding gifts!  Not only can you register for gifts from multiple retailers all in one spot, you can now ask your family and friends to help you fund your wedding or honeymoon in a non-tacky and totally tasteful way!  No more filling your new home with tons of items that you’ll never use!  Why not ask for a snorkel trip on your honeymoon, couples cooking classes, or even helping you have the vendors of your dreams (ahem, your favorite photographers) 😉 !?

Consider wedding funding in lieu of a traditional registry!  I’ve done some research and picked my favorite 3 sites for wedding funding registries.  They each have their own perks but all with the same goal in mind.  Enjoy the wedding of your dreams and happy registering!

Best Wedding Funding and Gift Registry Sites:

  1. Simple Registry : This first one may be my favorite option; think of it as Wedding Funding 2.0!  You can DREAM BIG, register for whatever you want, and in the end you actually get the cash to purchase it all on your own or take money from one gift to allocate it to another.  Check out this couples registry where they even ask for donations for their favorite charity in lieu of gifts! How sweet is that?!  Simple Registry is easy to use, beautiful to look at, and user friendly! They even have a mobile app that allows you to scan barcodes wherever you go and your friends can suggest gifts they love!  Check it out!
  2. Zola :  This may be one of the more popular wedding funding sites!  With Zola not only can you create your experience and tangible goods registry, but you can also create a wedding website, your guest list, and a checklist!  It’s 4 tools in one and has a mobile app!  With Zola you can register for any of their over 50,000 gifts and home goods as well as chose when to have them shipped to you when your guests purchase them (right away, prior to, or after the wedding day).  There is also a plethora of cash gift and honeymoon experience options to choose from! The opportunities are endless!!!
  3. ZankYou : With ZankYou wedding funding you can both create your beautiful Wedding Website AND your Wedding Registry in one place! This register also allows you to register for wedding expenses, gifts of experience, and actual tangible gifts. ZankYou is completely mobile and you can tailor it to your needs. How perfect is that?!

Oh, and if you’re looking for Honeymoon Funding, you definitely want to check out Honeyfund!

There you have it!  Three amazing sites that help you have the wedding of your dreams with wedding funding registries, fill your home with only things you need, and can even pay for your honeymoon snorkeling adventure!  Happy Planning!!!
