Recently, I met with Brandon Warner of SimpleRegistry.com. Like TGK, they are doing something rather unconventional in their market. I was intrigued and wanted to learn more.
SimpleRegistry aims to make creating registries fun, helping couples create a gift list that says, “this is who we are and these are the types of items, activities, and experiences that we love.” With SimpleRegistry, a couple can register for anything associated with a price. The goal: To help couples have a registry that shows off their personality instead of the latest inventory of the big box retail stores. SimpleRegistry makes a wedding registry reflective of each couple’s personality.
SimpleRegistry has several really cool features to make creating and maintaining a wedding registry fun and easy. With SimpleRegistry’s iPhone app, you can scan a barcode or take a picture of an item and immediately add it to your registry. When you find a “must have” item online, use SimpleRegistry’s browser button (similar to the PinIt Button) and add it quickly and easily your wedding registry!
One of my favorite benefits of SimpleRegistry is the ability to split or fund big ticket items through many gift givers. Let’s say you register for an iPad or a really pretty dining room table. SimpleRegistry allows multiple guests to contribute to the cost of these expensive gifts, splitting the cost into more accessible, manageable prices.
I give SimpleRegistry.com two big thumbs up for doing something different and innovative in the antiquated Gift Registry industry. What do you think of the idea of implementing a universal registry like SimpleRegistry into your wedding? Have you used or considered SimpleRegistry?
