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.
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.
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.
Our wedding was a little untraditional (just like us!), and it was wonderful to be able to find a registry service that allowed and even encouraged us to think outside the box.
I happened to find SimpleRegistry on a wedding blog and I'm so thankful I did! With all the crazy wedding planning that has been going on, it's been nice to have a simple and easy way to manage our registry. Thanks SimpleRegistry!
