I created a ‘Wish List’ at Anthro as they do not have an actual registry set up (why? I do not know because it would make a lot of lives so much easier!) but instead we set up the Wish List to which someone would either have to print out and take it in the store, OR has to find the very user UN-friendly website for the Wish List. I have had about 5 people tell me that they have tried to find my Wish List, and that I am not on there, HOWEVER, I had to point out to them that if they pay close attention to the bottom right portion of the screen, that my name DOES pop up in a tiny little box.
I’m worried that no one will be able to find my Wish List/be able to use it. I don’t have much on there, but what I do have is important as there are a lot of low price points and a lot of super fun items!
Has anyone else ‘registered’ at Anthropologie and if so, did you get ANYTHING from it???

i hate how they dont have this feature!! how are you dealing with taking the items off the list? are you instructing guests to do so? i always thought that piece would be the most difficult

@ms.meowerson I am not AS concerned about receiving duplicates as I am just not receiving anything! Because at least I can exchange it for something else on my ‘registry’. Although I would feel terrible if I received 4 of the same thing from people. My shower invites have already gone out and I’m not quite sure how to relay to anyone to be sure to take the item off themselves.
I tried to find an article I read that said people in-store we trying to be better about taking it off the list if bought in-store, but I would imagine however bought the item would have to let an employee know they were shopping off of a wish-list in order for this to happen.
But I also read if they order it online it shows how many are still desired and how many were ‘fulfilled’. Perhaps I should just purchase something myself to test it!

i am planning to use the anthro “wish list” function as well.
if you are in your wish list, can you use that link to direct people directly to your wish list? (its really long and garbled… but maybe you can post this on your website?)

Oh I definitely set up my website to be very Anthro Wish List user-friendly. The #2 reason I set up a website was to make sure I found a way to include the easiest path to my Anthro list. They literally just have to click on the Anthro ‘click here’ hyperlink and it will send them right to it. My concern is more for the shower invitations that went out stating simply where I was registered.
But i also purposely included my link on my save the dates to make sure people A. could easily view my registry information and B. so people would understand what black tie optional was. I realized after the fact, that I should have had my bridesmaids include the website link on the shower invitation somewhere as well, but didn’t think fast enough.
The only other way to get your wish list across easily is to email it to specific people, which is fine for Christmas or Birthday, etc. But not so much for a wedding, in my opinion.
Obviously none of this deterred me from still picking Anthro as part of my registry! That’s dedication 🙂

I know that this is a little late since most of your wedding dates have passed but maybe it can help someone else. I have some Anthro items on my giftregistry360.com registry because they didn’t have a registry option and that’s seemed to be successful. Giftregistry360.com allows you to add items to your registry from websites that don’t have registry options.
