Have you heard of Wedding Registry Events?  They are events that take place in the store and they typically serve you champagne or mocktails, appetizers or light bites and then you get to scan products for your registry.

Some stores have experts on hand to offer assistance where it might be needed.  Here are a few that I think you’ll find interesting –


I just received an Evite for an event at Macy’s –

“Sip yummy mocktails, snack on light bites, and scan your registry top picks at a Macy’s Wedding Party event near you.  Advisors and brand experts will guide you through your registry process.  Oh, and did we mention the DJ and photo booth, too?”

Sounds like a fun time if you are registering at Macy’s!  Here is a link to find an event near you – Macy’s Wedding Party.

Crate & Barrel

Crate & Barrel also holds Private Registry Events.

“Have the store to yourself as you get inside tips from our registry experts, create your perfect registry, mingle with other couples and celebrate with food, drinks and fun.”

Many, many other stores have wedding gift registries, these listed above just have “events” and I’m sure other stores do too if you search a little bit further.  You want to register where you love the products.  For example, if you love Target and the diversity of their products, they offer a discount on items that are left on your registry after the wedding day.  They also offer easy returns.

I would recommend finding a store that carries items you want and then checking with them if they have an event you can attend.

Have fun sipping, snacking and scanning!
