5 Reasons To Choose MyRegistry Over Zola For Your Wedding Registry

5 Reasons To Choose MyRegistry Over Zola For Your Wedding Registry

When it comes to your wedding, you should get what your heart desires, whether it's from a big box retailer or your local boutique store. MyRegistry was created with the vision of making it easy for your friends and family to get you exactly what you want on your big day. This is why our tools and features are designed to let you build your wedding registry with gifts from any store, anywhere. 

Here’s a list of reasons why people choose us as the go-to registry over competitors like Zola

We Make It Easy For Your Friends and Family by Making It Easy For You

Imagine a situation where you want to get furniture from Target, dishes from Bloomingdales, and bakeware from Williams Sonoma, so you create a registry with all of those stores. What’s next? Your friends and family have to navigate through all these sites to mark things off your registry. It sounds exhausting for everyone involved!

To avoid this, MyRegistry seamlessly and immediately syncs all your gifts into one list at the click of a button. While Zola wedding registry’s feature may feel similar, it’s not an automated benefit with all the background work already done for you. The heavy lifting – from finding, linking, and adding your registry – is on you, and updates can take up to 24 hours to reflect on your registry.

Ultimately our sync benefit is more than a feature. It's the key to our brand promise that makes it as easy as possible for you to ask for and receive what you want.

Benefit From Registry Perks From All Your Favorite Stores

Our couples love the idea of being able to sync multiple big box store registries while also benefiting from all of their perks. From over 20 sync partners like Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Crate & Barrel, you’re able to take advantage of perks like free shipping, completion discounts, and bonus gifts.

On the other hand, the Zola registry promotes its own perks—- and while this may be creative, it doesn't let you take advantage of the range of perks you could be getting from all the stores that could be part of your registry. And because we operate like Switzerland, we don’t have any agenda in promoting specific brands or retailers, we ensure that you get the benefits of every registry you sync on our site.

We Get You Right to Adding Gifts

Adding gifts to your registry is the most enjoyable part of wedding planning, (just take our brides’ word for it!) and our onboarding process is designed to get you adding gifts as quickly as possible.(Check it out here!) While creating your Zola wedding registry, the process involves over 10 questions and is designed to collect information to promote their products. In comparison, with half the amount of steps, MyRegistry gets you going in a snap.

All the Benefits of a Cash Fund Without the Privacy Vulnerabilities

With most online registries now offering cash funds, MyRegistry understands just how much trust goes into giving sites your personal information. For us, trust and security go hand-in-hand. We never ask you to give us any of your banking or credit card information on our site. We leave that to the pros – all of our cash funds are run directly through PayPal. They’ve been in the business of handling money for over 20 years and “...are backed with some of the best end-to-end encryption available” according to Business Insider. With us, you know that your security is one less thing you need to worry about.

We Are Not Just Your  Wedding Registry But Your Gift list for Life

As you embark on your journey as a couple, you will enjoy so many milestone moments that align with your values and life choices – new homes, new jobs, birthdays, first holidays together, children – these events are important to us because they’re important to you. MyRegistry is designed to make sure that you get to mark these events with gifts that you want. A recent article in The Washington Post encapsulated the idea well – “It’s important to rally for nontraditional things, too”. Unlike Zola bridal registry, which is focused on one major life event, only MyRegistry builds a relationship with you to celebrate all the special moments in your life.

The Bottom Line

At its core, a wedding is about celebrating an exciting moment in your life with your partner and all your loved ones. MyRegistry’s sole purpose is to make it easy for your friends and family to celebrate with you, by getting you exactly what you want. We make that happen because our platform is designed with flexibility, security, and trust at its heart; all with the goal of helping you add gifts from any store, anywhere with the click of a button. So from your wedding and beyond, we’re here to celebrate with you, for life.
