Well, I am about to introduce you to a bride’s new best friend (well besides her planner of course). Blueprint Registry has revolutionized how a couple can register for their wedding gifts. This website is the first, and currently only, online wedding registry that is based around the lay-out of your OWN home.
That’s right….your actual house. You pick what “type” of room you are registering for (i.e Bedroom, Kitchen, Living Room) and put your dimensions in. Then, Blueprint does all the work and brings in lists of highly rated products from numerous amazing stores such as Williams-Sonoma, West Elm and Crate & Barrel. Then, they suggest quantity types and refer other products you may desire as well.
It’s a registry that helps create your “dream home” by searching for gifts by the rooms in your own house, while you are actually sitting IN your own house. Basically looking at the “blueprint” of your home (see below), only with your registered items in there too! You customize your selection, too, by your “style” of decorating so your registry is just as unique as you are.
Blueprint helps cut down on the crazy number of exhausting trips you will take to stores where you go up and down aisles and scan bar codes/make lists of millions of things that you may want and/or need, while trying to remember the exact shade of those table place settings you use. This website has totally revolutionized the registering process. It’s made specifically to bring you a hassle-free registry. Engaged couples can now receive personalized style and quantity recommendations based on their home’s layout all while sitting in the comfort of their own home!
So yes, they offer products from some of my favorite stores, but also other unique items from select boutiques and designers. Best part–if you can’t find something on their website you would like, specifically, (which is unlikely) you can add it yourself from other stores. Very user-friendly.
Another cool feature, you can add any kind of honeymoon and or a cash registry is that if something you are interested in. You don’t even have to pick items, just simply things you need help funding. You can even add a fund to your blueprint registry and people can donate to your charity of choice as another option!
Now, your friends and family have a website to look at, in their own homes, that has everything you’ve been wanting and needing for your future home (and/or other fund). They can then pay for them, split up payment between other friends and family members, or put money towards certain things. How cool is that? Not only does it make registering easy for you, but it makes it SO much easier for everyone else as well! We reiterate…very user-friendly.
When we first heard about this amazing website, we contacted their founders Sara and Lizzy. They told us all about how wonderful this website was, making us even more excited for our brides. So, we had to ask them what some of their favorite registry items were and we have listed those below:
Go check it out! It’s free too, so you have nothing to lose…except numerous hours wandering around inside Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
