If you’ve been following Once Wed for a while now, you’ll know that we love online registry Zola. But you may not know why, so today we’ve rounded up our top 5 reasons that Once Wed loves Zola!
1. Completely customizable: With Zola, you not only get your own easy to remember and share custom registry URL, but you will also be able to customize your page to fit your style as a couple. Add photos of the two of you, write a welcome message to your guests, and leave notes on your gifts, indicating why you chose them!
2. Everything you want, in one place:
Already have a fully stocked kitchen? You can add gifts, experiences, and honeymoon & cash funds instead, plus anything from any store. (Yep! Feel free to pick out your favorite wine glasses from one store and that must-have gadget from somewhere else without sending your guests all over the internet.) Mark those pricier items you’re in love with for Group Gifting, so that multiple friends can pitch in!
3. Features that are actually helpful:
Not sure where to start when adding items to your registry? Zola’s Registry Planner tells you how many gifts you need in each price range based on the number of guests attending your wedding.
The Timeline will keep you on track throughout your wedding planning process and the Starter Collections are full of ideas that will inspire you as you search for the perfect pieces to start your new life together.
4. Stay in control of your gifts with:
Control shipping: You’ll get notified when a gift is purchased, and then you can decide to ship now or hold it for a more convenient time.
Online gift swap: Receive a gift from your registry and now you’ve decided it’s just not a favorite anymore? You can swap gifts before you even receive them or convert the purchase to credit.
5. An easy to use app for on-the-go planning:
Create and manage your registry on-the-go from Zola’s iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch app. See something you love while out shopping? Add it to your registry right from your phone with the barcode scanner! You can also browse gifts in 3D settings – like a real store, apartment or rooftop – with the 360° Feature to imagine how it might fit perfectly in your own space.
