In the end, we were very surprised at how many of our guests used SimpleRegistry. As the name implies, the process was simple as can be.
We will certainly be utilizing SimpleRegistry in the near future for a fundraiser and more of life's unforgettable events.
In regards to SimpleRegistry's ease of use, I can't boast that enough. From set-up to sending thank you notes to transferring the money into our bank account, I almost felt like SimpleRegistry was too good to be true. Was it all that easy? Well, it truly was.
There were items we could NOT have had w/o SimpleRegistry which allowed our guests to donate towards. The surprise for my mom. I found her wedding dress from 1965. I found a tailor who could reconstruct the dress to a modern cut (more my style), but the price was steep. So, I added it to the registry.
We simply could not have registered for almost anything on our SimpleRegistry with any of the other registry options. We wanted an elegant, enjoyable way for our guests to give us what we really wanted.
