Today's Wedding Wednesday is all about registries. Picking out gifts for people to buy you- what could be better! I'm using Zola for my registry, and I'm loving it! I didn't do too much research beforehand- I saw an ad on Instagram, clicked it, and liked what I saw. Zola is great because it has a clean interface, makes suggestions, and has a great phone app. It even has a browser button you can download to add things to your registry with the click of a button! Check out more of their features below.
Clean Interface- Zola's organized, easy-to-use interface makes it simple to search for items by category, room, or brand. It's also really easy for your guests to see what's been purchased.
Browser Button- Zola has a super handy "add to Zola" button, so that you can add things to your registry right from the webpage! It works in a similar way the Pinterest button does.
Suggestions- Zola has loads of suggestions, and even has lists of the basic items you'll need with options in various price ranges.
Gift Tracker- The gift tracker shows how many items were purchased, who bought them, and their value. You can even export the list to excel! This will make "thank you" notes super easy.
Group Contribution Option- For large ticket items, you have the option to allow guests to contribute towards the purchase. Even if you don't get enough funds to purchase the item, you get to keep all the credits to make a purchase on their site. The credits never expire!
Phone App- On the mobile app, you can edit your registry on the go! You can browse their extensive database or use the barcode scanner in stores. You can also use their Blender setting to explore random items, and swipe left or right to add or skip!
Control Shipping- With Gift Tracker, you can decide whether you want an item shipped to you right away, or if you want them to hold it for a later time.
Online Gift Swap- Change your mind on an item you selected? No problem! You can convert the gifts into credit, or exchange them before you receive them. Easy peasy!
Gift Options- You can add experiences (like cheese of the month or cooking classes), funds (like a honeymoon or downpayment), or fun weekend items (like a tent or bike).
