I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Okay ladies! It is time to talk registries! For those of you that are a bit more particular (read: Lady Grey falls into this category) it is often times hard to find the perfect store to register at because choosing all the loveliness you’ll want for your newly married life is hard to squeeze into just two or three stores! Am I right? This is where Zola comes in. Zola is an all-in-one, flexible registry that allows you to register for beautiful gifts, memorable experiences, cash/honeymoon funds and anything from any store. That means, everything you’d ever want, completely customized, and all in one place! Ready to hear how it works?

First off, Zola is super easy! You have total control and can do things like decide when/where your gifts are shipped (moving between now and the honeymoon??–your gifts can be shipped when you are settled in your new abode!). You can also track gifts, their recipients, and make your thank you’s much easier!

And–get this! If you are a shopper on the go and see something you love in store, just use the Zola iPhone app to scan barcodes and add to your registry in one quick step! OH MY! Plus, don’t love what someone picked out or changed your mind? You can exchange gifts before they are sent to you! Seriously. I die.

As if it couldn’t get any better, Zola also offers a curated experience for registering. They’ve created Tastemaker Collections from amaze peeps like Molly Sims and Lisa Vorce to help you pick out rad stuff from all over the web! How lovely to have someone help you find the perfect elements based on your own style? I love that!

In addition to ease of gift registry, Zola allows you to register for experiences and honeymoon or cash funds! If you are the type of couple that has everything for your house, this is a super amaze option! Your friends can also go in on a group gift too! Plus, you can make your registry completely personal by adding fun notes, collections and even pictures!

Registry Example - Ella & Harold

So guess what you guys? Grey Likes Weddings readers will receive $25 in Zola credits when they set up their wedding registry on Zola. New registries must be started (but not necessarily published) between 1/21/15 – 4/21/15. Credits will be placed into the couple’s Zola account 4 weeks after a couple’s registry is published live.

Okay ladies! For those of you newly engaged, don’t forget that one of the looming tasks on your to do list is to create a wedding website! This is always so helpful for guests who are traveling for the big day and is also a polite way to share registry information. What we didn’t know when it comes to checking this off your list is that a wedding website can be a lot easier said than done. First off, finding a source for well-designed sites in our aesthetic (read: super pretty) is nigh impossible. Second, finding pretty combined with functionality (read: virtual RSVPs!!!) is even tougher to hunt down. Forget about adding an easy interface so it’s easy to customize–the list is getting way too long! Until now, duh.

May we introduce you to Appy Couple?

WebStack_Confetti_w630px

Appy Couple is a modern wedding website and a coordinating interactive app that lets you manage and share important details of your wedding— everything from RSVPs to travel details for guests, from registry information to virtual champagne toasts and so much—with ease and style. It’s easy. Really, really easy. With an intuitive drag and drop interface, it’s so easy, it practically builds itself. And did I say it was pretty? Very pretty! More like, excited to send to friends to show off your design savvy fabulousness.

So, here’s what we love about Appy Couple!

1) It’s a truly all-in-one integrated wedding website and wedding app. Say goodbye to managing a patchwork of difficult to use accounts for various tasks (photo sharing, website creation, email invitations…you get the idea). Appy brings everything together for you so you can easily and elegantly create your wedding website and wedding app once and publish anywhere—on any device.

2) Guest list, RSVP tools and more that will delight you. Here’s one thing I know all brides find to be a major pain – managing their guest list and RSVPs. And this is something Appy Couple makes insanely easy to manage. Here’s how: You can not only upload and manage your entire guest list and RSVPs all from within your app or website, but you can also send personalized emails that match your design. And the most amazing part — Appy sends you push notifications when a guest RSVPs, so you can keep your guest list updated in real time (and guests love not having to snail-mail their RSVPs).

And of course, Appy has everything else that you can think of – travel information, registries, dining options and more – along with those you won’t think of – child care, weather, directions, local services among others.

3) Then of course, there are all the fun features that you’ll LOVE (and where guests can also join in) that make Appy Couple magical.

Not only can you add your photos, video and story but so can your friends. That’s something no one else lets you do. Your friends can not only add pictures of you directly from their phone but also edit them and add filters so they look good. Just for fun, Appy also includes thoughtful digital keepsakes: Virtual champagne toasts, a digital guestbook, an iTunes Playlist to which your guests can contribute – these are native app features that allow your guests to share in your wedding journey from Day One.

Not that it was a hard decision, but are you ready to get started?

It’s easy.

You can choose any design created by Appy’s award-winning design team and pay a one-time fee of $35 (for any design from the Boutique Collection) and you’ll be ready to go. Their oh-so-romantic Luxury Collection, featuring exclusive Carolina Herrera designs inspired by House prints and décor, is a one-time fee of $69.

Remember, you can always change the design at any time and as many times as you’d like for free – and your website and app will update immediately and automatically. How amazing is that?!

For those of you lucky holiday brides, we love the fact that you can use your registry as an opportunity to deck your halls in the prettiest ways possible! Crate & Barrel is our absolute favorite place to recommend for registries. Lady Grey herself registered there, and it remains one of her fave places to stock up! Not only does Crate & Barrel carry the perfect variety of entertaining, home, and kitchen items, but their customer service is spectacular! Returns and exchanges were a total breeze, and we love that because their style is so classic, we can keep adding to our collection over the years and still achieve a cohesive look to our home! Because of the variety of items they carry, with a classic, yet slightly edgy aesthetic, it always gets us excited to bedeck our home out just a wee bit more.

We know you’ve got yourself all excited about entertaining platters and cocktail glasses, and we would be too! Check out Lady Grey’s picks for her registry faves that are perfect for hosting, whether during the holidays, or year round! Be sure to find out how you can create a registry at Crate & Barrel (if you haven’t already) or even find a fun “Wedding Party” near you to attend!
