- Wedding: August 2014
We registered at BedBath&Beyond and at Zola. I liked the layout of the latter, the fact that you could add pictures and categories, and that it allowed group gifting.
However, after just finishing my first shower, it seems like it didn’t work. Only one of my guests purchased anything off of the Zola list, and she didn’t really buy it off of the registry. I hadn’t realized that it didn’t act like MyRegistry, which directs people to the website to purchase the gift. Instead, it asks them to essentially put money into a pot, then earmarks that money for the gift the person intended for us to go and buy ourselves. My guest instead went to the website of the gift (which doesn’t have its own registry system) and bought it off of there, but then there was no way to update the Zola list.
I guess what I’m asking is a) is there a better option and b) will it be too strange/confusing if I switch where we’re registered after already having a shower?
