You’re engaged? Congratulations! This is such an exciting time for you and your significant other, and one that should be as stress-free and simple as possible. Even still, there are probably a million things running through your head right now like venue options, the guest list, color palettes, caterers… the list could go on forever. In the midst of all the chaos, it’s important to think about ways to make the planning easier, and one of those ways is deciding on a great place to register.

With many 2022 couples deciding to postpone their nuptials until this year, not only does registering online for your wedding take a load off your guests, it also gives you peace of mind in a time when anything could change. Think of it this way: You pick the gifts you want (fun!) and the registry does the rest. That’s it! No need for your guests, or you, to even leave the house.

But, as with everything else wedding-related, there are lots of places to choose from when trying to decide the best place to register online. There are plenty of varying offers, product stocks, and the average price of items to think about, depending on your needs and guest budget. Considering this, we’ve narrowed down the top 15 places to register for your wedding online, so it’s one less thing you and your beau have to do.

Enjoy The Knot's Universal Registry to register for any item, anywhere

Product Selection: XL Return Policy: 90 days of shipment confirmation Prices: $ $ $

Among the many places to register for a wedding, The Knot seems to be one of the most popular. This comes as no surprise, seeing as its numerous features and options can be super helpful for brides and grooms throughout the wedding planning process.

First, you’re able to add any item you want to your registry, from anywhere you want. That’s right—anywhere. Because The Knot has partnerships with many stores like Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and Wayfair, you’ll be able to sync your registry from any of the retailers into one registry on The Knot. They call it the Universal Registry; one place for all your registered gifts so you and your guests can see everything at once. Plus, gifts aren’t the only thing you can register for on The Knot. You’re also able to register for cash funds that could go towards a honeymoon, pet fund, home renovations, or anything else you’d like. Keep everything organized with their free wedding website service as well, which easily handles the registry and other important wedding details so guests can stay up to date on the latest.

Best of all, there are The Knot Gifts Back program which donates a percentage of purchases made at participating retailers to more than 100 charitable organizations. All you have to do is choose your charity and pick your gifts, and The Knot donates up to 3% of all qualifying gifts to your chosen cause.

Product Selection: XL Return Policy: 180 days Prices: $ $-$ $ $

It’s great to register with Amazon for the same reasons it’s great for everyday purchases: convenience and variety. Simply put, there’s no shortage of items on Amazon, and they’ll all get to you as quickly as you can say “I do.”

As if the extensive stock on Amazon alone wasn’t enough, with their universal registry you can search for and add products to your registry from anywhere on the internet. That’s right—anywhere. And don’t worry about those bigger, higher-priced items. With group gifting, your friends and family are able to contribute to the total cost of an expensive item together. They’ll also enjoy the two-day shipping that Amazon is known for, so there will be no stress-waiting by the mailbox on the morning of the wedding. Guests can give back, too; Amazon Smile is available with their registry purchases in order to support their favorite charities. Want to guide folks in the right direction? Highlight the items you love the most so they’re guaranteed to be bought first, and see who gave what with the package x-ray tool so you’ll know just who to thank. Best of all, there’s a 20% completion discount for the remaining items in your registry just in case you don't get everything you want.

Depending on your specific needs, Target has a good selection of kitchen, bath, and decor to easily fill up your registry list, specifically Target exclusives we know and love like Hearth & Hand by Magnolia, Threshold, and Opalhouse. If by any chance you’re not able to find something you’re looking for, Target has a universal registry feature that lets you add on products you want from other websites.

Even better, if there are some items left in the registry after your big day, you’ll receive a 15% discount on them.

Recently Target partnered with Honeyfund, a service that lets your friends & family contribute to your honeymoon and newlywed experiences as a wedding gift alternative (or add-on). You can use these funds for anything from honeymoon travel to date nights. Choose from amazing adventures like a romantic cruise, dinner and a movie, and even wine tastings.

15. Walmart

Walmart has the name brands and prices you love

Product Selection: Large Return Policy: 90 days Prices: $ $

Get the cooking, dining, and household essentials that you want, for a lot less. Registering with Walmart gives you access to their famously low prices, as well as the Registry section of the Walmart app, allowing you to scan and register for items both online and in-store.

A nice perk when registering with Walmart is the registry card, which is not something we’ve seen with other retailers. Once your registry is created and completed, a custom card is created with your registration information so that you can print and place them into shower invitations. About the size of a business card, they’re perfect for easily giving friends and relatives access to your registry without the fuss. Walmart even offers a variety of personalized gifts from jewelry to cake toppers. Have a favorite photo? It can be made into a blanket, wall decor, or pillow of your choice. When it comes to returning any items you weren’t 100% satisfied with, registry returns are able to be made within 90 days and can be done by both mail or in-store.
