You just got engaged and need to start planning your wedding. Congrats! Get to the good stuff first and check out all the discounts you and your guests can get just for registering with the retailers below.
1. Crate & Barrel will give you a set of their best stemless wineglasses just for registering with them.
What the two of you get: A free set of Crate & Barrel’s best stemless wineglasses is nice, but you also get free bonus gifts when guests buy you certain brands, free Save the Dates from Paperless Post, complimentary announcement cards, and a six-month 10% completion discount good for any item (including furniture) in store or online after your event.
What your guests get: Crate & Barrel will ensure your guests receive the lowest price on the brands they sell with their in-store and online price match guarantee. Guests also receive free shipping on gifts over $99.
2. Macy’s will reward your guests with $20 off their next purchase when they buy you a gift.
What the two of you get: It literally pays to register at Macy’s if you have a Macy’s Rewards credit card. You’ll receive 10% back on gifts and accessories you buy for yourselves and an additional 5% back in Registry Star Rewards every time a guest purchases their gift to you. After the wedding, you’ll receive a gift card with your accumulated rewards.
Anything that’s left on your registry can be purchased for 20% off up to six months after your wedding.
What your guests get: Macy’s frequently offers their “Give a Gift, Get a Gift” promotion that rewards guests for buying your gift at Macy’s. The reward? $20 off your next purchase of $50 of more!
3. Kohl’s will give you 10% back on all the items purchased from your registry.
What the two of you get: Kohl’s gives you 15% off once you register, and if your guests buy certain brands like Calphalon or Keurig, you may be qualified to receive free gifts. The best part about registering at Kohl’s is that you earn 10% rewards on all the gifts purchased from your registry. So if your friend buys you guys $50 worth of towels, you’ll get $5 in store credit—no Kohl’s Charge card required, just start a registry!
You’ll also get 15% off items left on your registry for three months after the wedding.
What your guests get: Friends and family who spend at least $100 on your gift will save 20% on their in-store purchase.

What the two of you get: Couples get a one-time 10% discount on any Amazon item 30 days after the wedding and 180 days to return gifts. Amazon also keeps track of who buys what for you so it’s easier to send thank you cards. But, what we love most is Amazon’s Universal Registry Button that allows you to add items from other websites to your registry page.
What your guests get: Guests get free shipping on any gift over $49, including free 2-day shipping for Amazon Prime members.
5. Dillard’s will give you a free wedding planner and a 20% off completion discount.
