frequently asked questions

What is a wedding registry?


A wedding registry, also referred to as a bridal registry or bridal shower registry, is a gift list created by engaged
couples that indicates to wedding guests which presents the couple would like to receive for their big day. Once
completed, this wish list is sent out to friends and family who can determine at a glance which presents have been
purchased and which haven’t, helping them decide what to buy while avoiding duplicate wedding gifts.

Why is Crate & Barrel one of the best places to register for a wedding?


When you create a Crate & Barrel gift registry, there are a number of perks and benefits to take part in. Registrants
get easy access to our wedding lookbook and a 15% discount that is good for up to six months after your event.
Additionally, engaged couples are welcome to join in on our Private Registry Events every other Sunday morning
before your nearest Crate & Barrel store opens to the public for the day.

Can I set up a cash registry at Crate & Barrel?

gift card that can be used to purchase any items that you did not receive for your wedding.

Does Crate & Barrel have a wedding registry app?


Apple iPhone users with iOS 12.1 or later can download the Crate & Barrel app(opens in new window) from the App Store. The registry app allows you to create and edit a gift registry with ease. And sneak peeks are encouraged—the app alerts you every time a registry item is purchased. You can even use the app to scan barcodes in-store to add items to your wedding registry.

How many items should be on a wedding registry?


The size of your wedding registry depends on the size of your wedding; the best rule of thumb is to add twice as many gifts to your registry as there are invitees to your nuptials. While this may seem like a lot, doing so allows guests to select something off your bridal registry that they feel excited about giving you. As you approach the big day, continue adding to your registry to ensure that last-minute gifters have enough options.

What goes on a wedding registry?


The short answer: anything you want. While dinnerware, cookware and linens are among the most popular wedding registry items, the Crate & Barrel wedding registry also allows you to add non-traditional items as well, such as furniture, holiday decor, baby products and gift cards. Be sure to include your best registry ideas at a variety of price points to accommodate your guests’ different budgets.

When should I set up my wedding registry?


The best time for the bride, groom, or anyone getting married to set up their gift registry is four to six months in advance of tying the knot. This gives loved ones plenty of time to purchase gifts and ensures the registry is set up in advance of any pre-wedding celebrations, including the bridal shower, couples shower or wedding shower.
