Register for anything - anywhere:
Any item from any store on one registry. Even add non-tangible stuff like cooking classes, indoor skydiving sessions, or a donation to your favorite charity. When your event is over all gifts are redeemed as cash for the ultimate in flexibility. Newer model of that camera you registered? Want a different color of that blender? No problem!
Pricey items to smaller portions:
Let's face it, there probably aren't many people that will buy you that awesome $2,000 camera all on their own. However, we can tell you have at least 20 friends (you have a kind face) that would be willing to chip in $100 each. We make it easy to allow for group-gifting at whatever levels you desire.
Kick-ass tools for easy setup:
Add any item on any website (like Amazon.com or Target.com) with just one-click using our SimpleAdder tool. Scan barcodes or take quick photos of items on-the-go with our free Mobile App. Don't have time for either? Use our Instant Registry feature to go from zero to complete registry in under 30-seconds. Use one or all of these great tools in combination.
Let others suggest cool items:
Why should you have to think up everything you'll need on your registry? Let your friends & family help! They get a custom version of our SimpleAdder tool and can suggest great items they already love. You have complete power over which suggested items to add – and which to ignore.
Saying "thank you" made easy:
Your mom was right: you should write a nice "thank you" note. We track all your gifts, who gave them, and the contact info for each giver. You can easily keep tabs on whom you've thanked already, and who still needs a note (hand-written is always best). And if you're the paper-type, you can easily generate and print a checklist with the full details. Read less

SimpleRegistry was a FANTASTIC alternative to the standard "wedding registry" - we got a lot of compliments based on people being able to give us an "experience" as opposed to something materialistic. We were extremely impressed and are recommending this service to everyone we know!

Simple Registry is GREAT! It's easy, straightforward, flexible, and perfect for people like me and my husband who couldn't fit any gifts in our little apartment, but just needed some donations to help us furnish at our own pace. I was worried that Simple Registry would look tacky to our guests, but just the opposite - my boss even recommend her son use it for his wedding!

Simple Registry provides a much more centralized, easily navigated and stress-free registration process. That said, I do think that the 5% fee is a bit excessive.

SimpleRegistry Wedding Registry responded with the following comments:

Hi Cooper,

Thanks for your valuable feedback.

We are always trying to find ways to reduce our costs so that we can lower our fee and provide greater value to our Members. SimpleRegistry is one of the least expensive cash wedding registry services that accepts credit cards. Unfortunately, credit card companies continue to keep fees high for small businesses like SimpleRegistry (2-3% per transaction) and it is only the largest companies like Amazon and Walmart that receive lower rates. I hope you understand that it would be impossible for SimpleRegistry to accept credit cards and have 24/7 customer service without charging a service fee.

Everyone on our team is working hard to find a better way to notify our Members of the fee. If you have any suggestions or recommendations on how we can improve the service fee notification (in addition to what we have
now), please don't hesitate to contact us.

Best Regards,
Brandon Warner

We found Simple Registry highly responsive and professional. The only question is whether you are willing to sacrifice 5% of the value of your gifts for the extreme convenience Simple Registry offers. For us, the answer was yes and we have been very satisfied.

We had a great time using simple registry. It was very easy to set up and to collect your gifts from after the wedding. Our guests loved that you could just pay with credit card and we listed various cost items from our honeymoon so everyone knew what their gifts were going towards. It was especially nice to get email notifications when anyone have a gift, so I knew right away and could thank them easily.

Cleanest/simplest design and easy interface of site we reviewed. We initially tried another site but it lacked a security certificate when it required our personal information and had horrible customer service.

Simple Registry indicated quality security at each step and made the entire process quick and easy. I would recommend this to my friends.

This registry site is quite a gem!
We thoroughly enjoyed its service - it provided us with the flexibility we wanted in bringing together gift ideas from a broad variety of sites; it is incredibly easy to use, easy to add our selections and simple to redeem the gifts.
I'm also very appreciative of the records the site maintains - I now have access to a clear list of gifts and giftees, with their respective date of purchase and mailing addresses for Thank You notes.

SimpleRegistry made registering for the items we really needed so easy. Traditional registries can seem outdated when the couple has already established a home before marriage. Typical items like flat wear and bed sheets are things we already own. Being able to register for a new couch and new tv was made possible by splitting the cost for our guests. Also, transferring the gift money directly to your bank account was unbelievably convenient! SimpleRegistry also creates a thank you list which makes even that part incredibly easy!

Simple Registry is a unique place to have your registry. We really liked the idea that we could chose the gifts ourselves and have the pictures and prices posted for guests to chose from.
One of the wishes is that the website could be made more colorful and interesting. We did have a bit of an issue with posting the gift money to our bank account, but it got resolved quickly. And the check for the second gift we got via mail fairly fast too.
Overall, pretty cool registry - we were able to add "random" things and activities for a quality time as our gift ideas

Great idea, but some people are easily confused and don't understand how the site works. After I created the page for our wedding registry and sent out the address to family and friends, I received very few hits. Most people complained that they didn't know what to do or how it worked. Not great for all ages.

This was such a fantastic way to ask for "gifts". All of our guests loved it, and thought it was very clever, fun, and useful, with most saying how easy it was to give their "donation". We have everything we could need in life, really, and we certainly didn't need toasters and wok's, so we made our gifts to be fun things we need for our house, like rug's, and a wine fridge. Everyone was able to add their desired gift amount to whichever item they wanted, and low and behold, the totals climbed higher and higher, and now we have a new wine fridge, and we are currently looking for a rug and other fun things, all due to the generosity of our friends and family.

Highly recommended!

SimpleRegistry made our wedding registry a breeze! We could add items from any website, and we could even split up the cost of more expensive items - "crowd sourcing" the larger gifts. We had many people contribute, and it was easy to redeem our funds. The only drawback we had was that some people either weren't comfortable with an online registry, or they didn't quite understand how the whole thing worked. This is no fault of SimpleRegistry, though. The service was wonderful and headache-free!

Simple Registry was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm so glad I went with them! We already have a lot of the typical registry items, and Simple Registry allowed us to register for more untraditional items. We had categories like Down Payment for a House and New Furniture. This registry allowed us to purchase items we would actually use. Simple Registry was easy to use, receiving the money was fast and easy, and they charge lower fees than other similar registry sites.

While I loved the concept of being able to register for whatever I wanted, I probably should have read the directions before I signed up - didn't realize I wouldn't actually be getting the ITEMS and would only be getting $ until after people started purchasing and the things I registered for weren't showing up at the house. Some of the things people bought me were sold out by the time I got the check and got around to trying to buy them, which wasn't ideal and might be hard to explain to your relatives and friends who think they're actually buying you the items you registered for. In other words, make sure you understand what you're getting into before you start using this registry - it's probably better for last minute gift-registering or funding a big purchase than it is for smaller, run-of-the-mill registry items.

I didn't like that they kept a percentage of our gift cards. I didn't read that before I registered or I would have looked elsewhere. My fault for not reading the fine print! I registered only for southwest gift cards, that was it and the only way I could redeem them was by them sending me a check for the amount people bought the gift cards. If I wanted money I would have asked for money. I wanted the gift cards so that we could use them to fly our kids back and forth. Although the money was the same thing, it's easier not to spend when it comes in the form of a specific gift card!

Simple Registry was perfect for my husband and I. We wanted a non-traditional registry that would allow our guests to help us make memories, not just buy us a new toaster. For example, Simple Resistry allowed us to register for scuba diving on our honey moon and an annual pass to state parks, in addition to more traditional home goods. It also provided us with the flexibility to split more expensive items into "shares" so that guests could go in together on some gifts and allowed guests to simply contribute cash.

It was convenient to create the registry using the Simple Adder tool, but our only complaint is that the web interface did not provide a link to the registry items to us or to our guests.

My partner researched or 5 or 6 sites for raising money to help make our commitment ceremony and reception happen. SimpleRegistry had the best rates relative to its easy to use platform - both for us to customize and for our guests to contribute. My partner thought the personal messages via post were superfluous but I loved getting them. When we "cashed in" our gifts, the money appeared in our account quickly and without incident. I'd recommend SimpleRegistry to anyone!

Simple to create a unique wedding registry from around the web and guests can put an amount toward a large ticket item. They keep a small fee from the amount that your guests submit. Quick and simple process to redeem the gifts, with a few options to receive it (direct deposit/check in the mail/paypal).

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Simple Registry. So glad I did my research and found them. I'm the girl with "expensive taste that has everything", or so I've been told. And to make it worse me and my now husband had been together for 12 yrs befre getting married and already bought a home so there wasn't anything we really needed.

We chose to be environmentally friendly foregoing traditional paper invites. Instead we chose fancy evites fron paperless posts so it was only fitting to have a strictly online registry as well!

Loved using the simple adder tool and had a lot of fun creating our wedding registry including items rangin from airfare for our honeymoon to furniture to magazine subscriptions. Many of our family and friends told us they lived the concept and had no problem giving.

I will say I never had to interact with "customer service", since everything was so user friendly and well explained, but I assume from the tone of ther emails that they'd be pretty cool!

I'd definitely recommend Simple Registry to anyone. Hell, I already have!

I really enjoyed using SimpleRegistry. I was looking for something where we could select the gifts we wanted and we also wanted the option of receiving cash, but felt as if asking for cash was rude. With SimpleRegistry, you receive the cash for the gifts your friends and family are getting for you and this way works great. We actually decided to keep most of the money, and only got the very essential items. It's not easy to be young and married and trying to start your life in SF, very expensive...!

We loved using SimpleRegistry for it's unique ability to combine a cash registry with items that you want and need at your own convenience. It is simple to understand, simple to explain to others, simple to use and SO MUCH FUN! You can customize your own site and truly make your registry about you and your future. People found it easy to use and we didn't have a bunch of questions about why we were asking for cash or why we didn't register somewhere...it really is intuitive and valuable. When I was ready to redeem our money after the wedding it was super easy and the fact that all of the gifts, names and addresses are provided at the end makes it even more amazing when doing Thank You cards. One less thing to do afterward. This is absolutely the best registry to use if you want to think bigger than pots and pans and a toaster.

We loved Simple Registry. My now husband and I had been living together a while before we got married, so we already had a bunch of stuff we would typically need. We didn't want to just ask for cash and this way we got to hand pick what we wanted from absolutely anywhere. When you are ready for your money, they will send you a check or do a direct deposit into your account. Super convenient and very well done website.

Easy to work with. Just add a button to your browser and "add" gifts to your registry. If you want to get cash instead of the gifts, it's really easy to do that also. I think the 5% fee is a tad bit too high but otherwise it's a great service.

Simple Registry earned us a lot of cash that we used to pay for the honeymoon. The guests feel that their gifts towards "a romantic dinner on our honeymoon" is more personal and direct, but the cash is more flexible for us. Awesome service.

After having to decide between registering with multiple stores or none at all, I found SimpleRegistry.com to be a great solution! I was able to add things we actually needed/wanted and also receive advice from close family & friends as far as what they wished they would've had on their own registries! After the wedding, the money was easy to cash out and, overall, I feel our registry was a success!

Guests even complimented us on the ease of use and cool concept that Simple Registry uses so I would say it was a win for all! I would definitely use it again!

This site is very user friendly and fun to set up and the transaction to redeem the cash value for the gifts was simple and quick as well. We received instant email notifications when gifts were purchased for us. We registered for hydrangea bushes that need to be planted in the Spring so this was a perfect way to register for exactly what we wanted and have the ability to purchase the plants when we are ready for them. Some things to think about are that people like to bring gifts to showers and are still slightly uncomfortable with the technology so acknowledging gifts when the notification is sent rather than waiting until the event, may put people at ease. Other than thinking through the new etiquette a bit, it was a no muss, no fuss, convenient and time saving way to register.

Hi Brandon Warner
We are very happy with your service at Simple Registry and loved the flexibility and the fact that our friends from all over the world could contribute to a gift we really wanted.
We still have our page open as a couple of friends have expressed interest in making contributions.
My only complaint would be that we didn't get email alerts for all the wedding contributions and that a friend said she made a contribution but I don't see it reflected on the history or the thank you tabs. Could you please look into that everyone who has contributed is reflected, otherwise our thank yous are incomplete.
Many thanks, Susana and Andrew

Really great site and so awesome to have an alternative-type registry. We were able to ask for donations to charity, items for our home, honeymoon funds, and activities! It was great. Adding some items to the registry using the simple adder was not always simple-- but after re-installing that software, we were back on track. Overall, it was a great experience that allowed us to customize our registry to include all sorts of things we liked!

We enjoyed setting up our whole registry on Simple Registry. It made life so much easier since mailing to our home is very difficult. They are quick in their response time to moving your money into your account. You can pick anything all in one place and put up personalized messages and photos for your family and friends. Overall, about 90% of our guests or more used Simple Registry and had a good experience. Many commented that they liked how intentional we were with setting forth our gift choices, including help for our honeymoon and a 10% donation to charity on the cash choice. The 5% deduction from gifts is a chunk, but it saved us a lot of trouble and guests pay no service fee, tax, shipping or gift wrap. The last bonus of Simple Registry is that it is going to make Thank You notes so much easier. All ordered and organized already!

This was very much worth it. Everything was organized--from the requests to the e-mail notifications. People told me that it was easy to "make purchases" and get us gifts. The site was easy to use. Well organized. We had shopped around at different websites and companies who do this style of gift registry...and this one by far came out looking the best, being the easiest to use, and taking the LEAST of our money. I would recommend it to everyone for every occasion.

Not happy that only 1 person bought something on our registry. It made us sad. It really sort of freaked out a lot of people I think.. because, in the end, they're really just giving you cash. You get a check and need to go out and buy the stuff you want.

Thank you for your feedback and I'm really sorry you only receive one gift from your registry. The average number of gifs our members received is 19 so this makes us really sad too! We try to make it as clear as possible that Members have the freedom to purchase the gifts they have received monetary contributions toward whenever they please. That is one of the key differences with SimpleRegistry compared to most traditional registries.

This was a great alternative for our registry as we live out of state from where our wedding was, and we didn't want to worry about transporting a lot of items back home.

The only negative I saw was that some people were confused by the wording on items that had been split into smaller portions. They thought we were asking for 5 kayaks, not that the one kayak we wanted was split into 5 smaller portions.

This was absolutely perfect. My husband and I didn't need a lot of the more "traditional" presents, but even the ones we did want, we could just add, lickety split, from here! ANYwhere. And I didn't have to keep a good idea in mind, because I had the "simple adder" on my bookmark tab. I saw something I wanted on etsy one day, and BAM. it was on my list. We registered for everything from tea pots to hiking boots to sleeping bags to things for our future dogs. Everything we wanted was on one easy site, organized by "type," and easy to see who bought what IF we wanted that.

Thank you SO so much for making this easy. Traditional registry buyers may be a little thrown... assure them that this is everything you need.

We used SimpleRegistry for our wedding registry and were very happy with it. Our guests found it easy to use and did not know it was a cash registry. After the wedding it was extremely simple to get our money out of the account (they just sent us a check within several days) and I especially liked the thank-you list which exported as a CSV so I could merge it with my other records. All in all, very happy.

it was a hassle to use this site. at first glance I thought that it would be wonderful because I could gather items from several places. Which was the initial draw. However, I found it frustrating to have to go purchase the gift myself, later, after the money was in my "account". It is a useful site if you want to go back and pick and choose the gifts that you receive by pooling your money. but it is not a great registry if you do not want to have to actively go purchase the gifts yourself, from each website you found them on. That part is really time consuming.

They provided the exact service we needed. We really wanted cash for a down payment on a house, but found that a lot of people were turned off by the idea of cash. So this allowed the guests the opportunity to feel like they were giving a gift, but we were able to actually get the cash. And we had a distance wedding, so it was nice to not need to worry about traveling back with the gifts. They were great!

We used SimpleRegistry after a friend's wedding experienced some monetary theft at the home they rented with their bridal party (put a huge damper on the whole weekend). We didn't want to have a big wad of cash to keep track of at our wedding in New Orleans, so I put on our wedding website a link to make a honeymoon fund donation, and everyone was so happy with how easily they could give us a gift at our wedding reception! They were using their cell phones (or several people "gave" honeymoon fund gifts before the reception)... it was very very easy to use, and the thank you list at the end is also super convenient. I highly recommend SimpleRegistry!

Thank your for your valuable feedback. I will forward this to our customer service manager to find out what happened to your inquiry. We take a lot of pride in our 24/7 customer service and it is very frustrating when we don't answer our customer's questions. Please feel free to reach out to our manage directly at the email below: missy@simpleregistry[dot]com

I reviewed our redemption options in our FAQ and wanted to let you know the delivery times. The fastest redemption option is the ACH Bank Transfer or International Bank Wire Transfer. These are processed within (1) business day but allow up to (2) additional business days for the funds to appear in your bank account. PayPal redemptions are processed within (3) business days. Finally, check redemptions are MAILED within (3) business days of the redemption and delivery time will vary by location. Please allow up to (8) business days to receive a bank check in the mail. If a bank check is requested on a Friday, it could take the following 5 business days + 3 business days in the second week for the check to go out.

I will do my best to talk to the team that processes these redemptions to see if there is a way to speed up the check redemption process. Thanks again for your valuable feedback.

My husband and I both had separate apartments and merged our belongings when we moved in together. We had to get rid of so many things and didn't need any more plates, cups, etc. Our guests kept asking us for a registry and we came upon this site. We could list what we truly needed and allow more than one person to contribute it it. Although not many people used the site, I did find the owner to be quite responsive and professional. We received our check shortly after requesting it.

Would definitely recommend.

SimpleRegistry was amazingly simple and convenient. It's an online registry that lets guests pay for all or portions of gifts making it easy for everyone to contribute as much or as little as they like. Easy to set up, and easy to edit. SimpleRegistry provides you with your own unique link to your registry to share with friends and family. I got a notification by email whenever a gift was given, making it easy to thank people. Getting our total gift was extremely simple, and the cheque arrived less than a week after we requested it. I've already recommended SimpleRegistry to others.

This was an excellent way to register for us! As a couple who has lived together, and before that lived separately with our own homes, we were not in need of a great deal of "things.". But this system allowed us to both register for the few things we needed as well as assign dollars to particular items for our honeymoon. It's a great, useful [and subtle] option for getting what we really needed and wanted! thank you!

I had a bit of a difficult time getting an account set up with Simple Registry- some of the "click throughs" did not work for me, but I spoke with their customer service and my account was set-up so quickly. They also give me a little tutorial on adding gifts to my registry. All in all, an awesome way to receive the gifts that worked for us- we didn't have a household to set-up, but we do have some expensive projects going on at our home which are now underway thanks to the gifts we received from family and friends through Simple Registry. Additionally cool is that all our people now feel even more connected to our home as they have helped us get the big work done.

SimpleRegistry was a cinch to set up and add items using the SimpleAdder Chrome add-on. We had a great response from guests and it was an easy transaction when we decided to redeem our gifts. We had been referred to SR by other friends who had recently gotten married, and I would do so for my friends with upcoming weddings and showers. Thanks!

Everything from the handy browser bar tool that easily adds the item you wish to add to your registry to the "thank you" list with everyone's mailing address was very convenient. One of my favourite things about Simple Registry was the fact that you could list all these different "gifts" - be it an experience, something for your new home, or your honeymoon.. and in the end you could receive it all as cash (via wire/bank transfer). Thanks so much!

the communication from simple registry was timely and informative, it never was too much. The fact that we were allowed to provide our own descriptions and pictures for items helped us bring in the tone that spread throughout the wedding. Our honeymoon was a roadtrip in California so some of the wishlist things didn't exactly fit into a traditional model. Once the event was over, the transfer of our gifts was two clicks away!

SimpleRegistry is easy to use, with good recommendations and friendly reminders and updates. I especially liked the Thank-You Note feature, where my guests could leave well wishes and I'd get a list of people I needed to thank.

Only downside is the $5 fee. I had quite a few guests tell me they preferred to send a check instead of incur the fee.

SimpleRegistry Wedding Registry responded with the following comments:

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for your valuable feedback.

We are always trying to find ways to reduce our costs so that we can lower our fee and provide greater value to our Members. SimpleRegistry is one of the least expensive cash wedding registry services that accepts credit cards. Unfortunately, credit card companies continue to keep fees high for small businesses like SimpleRegistry (2-3% per transaction) and it is only the largest companies like Amazon and Walmart that receive lower rates. I hope you understand that it would be impossible for SimpleRegistry to accept credit cards and have 24/7 customer service without charging a service fee.

Everyone on our team is working hard to find a better way to notify our Members of the fee. If you have any suggestions or recommendations on how we can improve the service fee notification (in addition to what we have
now), please don't hesitate to contact us.

The upside is that when you are busy planning your wedding, working and keeping up with your life, if you don't have time to pick out specific things for your registry, you can select general items for people to contribute towards and you can be specific later.

We also assumed that it would be easier for guests who couldn't spend a lot to contribute as little as a $20 increment towards a gift and still feel like they gave us a gift.

Unfortunately, only 5 out of 133 invited guests knew what it was, even with an explanation and link on our invites, and were comfortable gifting there. The other draw back is of course that you are not done. With more traditional registries, gifts are shipped to you, here you still have to coordinate getting the item yourself, and in our case, paying for the difference and the fees for simpleregistry. We loved the idea, but it didn't ultimately work out for us. We debated whether to use simpleregistry.com or amazon and in hindsight I wish we had chosen Amazon.

SimpleRegistry Wedding Registry responded with the following comments:

Hi Kathy,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our service. I'm sorry to hear that not many of your guests used this registry to give you a gift. Did you have other registries? Typically our Members receive about 80% of their gifts from their SimpleRegistry wedding registry. This certainly decreases if they have other registries.

SimpleRegistry was created to give engaged couples as much flexibility as possible with their registry. We believe that by allowing the couple to purchase items when they are ready is the best way to do this. I'm sorry we weren't exactly what you were looking for but happy to hear everything worked out well with the gifts that you did receive on your SimpleRegistry wedding registry.

Best Regards,

SimpleRegistry was as the name suggests, simple and easy to sign up. After my wedding, it was extremely easy to "cash in" my gifts, and I received a cheque within 2 weeks. I love the fact that you get a cheque and not the items because it turned out that someone had bought me a silverware set, which was on my registry but they bought it somewhere else in person. This flexibility was really handy, as I didn't have to return anything.

I loved this registry! It was so easy and so wonderful to customize the items. Being an older couple who already owns a house together, we didn't need a lot of the traditional household items. We really just needed cash to help us pay for the wedding. This was a fun way for our family and friends to contribute. We set up portions of our honeymoon in denominations that made sense to our guests. I looked into other registries that have honeymoon packages but we wanted to have more control over our honeymoon and plan our own trip. So, this registry was ideal!

When my wife (then Fiancee) and I were searching for a registry for our wedding, we happen to stumble on Simple Registry, and as soon as we read about how it worked, we just couldn't believe it, "this was simply the best idea for a wedding Registry", we said. Why get gifts such China sets, fancy bed sets, and so forth when you can do with the cash. This was a great way to help us make back most of the money we spent on our wedding, this way, we knew we were starting out our married life on a strong financially foundation, and this was totally worth it. Also, Simple registry has the function of actually purchasing the registry items by choice, and that's just perfect, we got the chance to decide on what items we currently needed and were able to purchase them. At the end of it all, we can say, we have a great cash box, and just the right gifts we currently need for our new life together.
Thanks Simply Registry

Simple Registry was such a great way to create our Honeymoon Fund. We already lived together and had all the things we needed for our home, so we thought it would be a great idea to have a Honeymoon Fund for our wedding. Our guests loved it too! They were able to buy us dinner in Paris, bottle of wine, or a gondola ride in Venice, etc! And we were able to send photos along with our thank you cards, so our guests could see us enjoying their gift! Simple Registry had the lowest fees compared to other websites, and were very easy to use. The funds were easily and quickly deposited into our account in time for our honeymoon! The great thing is that you can use this site for other special events as well, not just weddings!

I chose SimpleRegistry because I planned my wedding in 3 months and didn't have a bridal shower. This saved me time because I could stay at home and add gift requests for products from any website. The flexibility was amazing. I even added my own gift category called "Honey Moon Fund". I also saved money because I didn't send shower invitations (hundreds of stamps) to everyone. I just included the link to my SimpleRegistry site in my Save the Date announcements. Simple Registry also saved me time because of the cash out option. I didn't have to return any gifts, and if my guests couldn't cover the total cost of the gift, I was just given the cash that they contributed. This process was quick and easy. I love this website!

We wanted to collect enough funds to pay for our honeymoon to Thailand... this was a great way to get the word out without overtly asking for cash! We did get plenty of cash as well, but this provided a way for people who felt a little funny just writing a check to be able to give us something more tangible (for example, a night at a hotel, a portion of plane tickets, dinner at a restaurant, etc). Long story short... we're headed to Thailand in November and are paid in full!

My (now) husband and I bought a house and had been living together for several years before we got married, and did NOT need "things" from a traditional gift registry. What we did want is money to pay for a fabulous honeymoon. My mid-western parents thought asking for cash was tacky. We knew guests our age would be fine with it, but the older generation wanted to actually give "something." With a honeymoon registry, guests feel like they are doing just that. I did some research on the different cash registries and visited several other sites. SimpleRegistry, as the name implies, seemed to be the most straightforward, and easy to use. We chose them mainly because we didn't want to pay ridiculous fees, or be told when we could or couldn't withdraw our money. It was the right choice. Set up was easy- We were able to create a page in one evening (neither one of us are super tech-y) and it turned out just as we wanted- we added lots of unique photos to illustrate the present/experience we were requesting (like dinner at a particular restaurant in Geneva, or vintage ski posters). We had many compliments on the site from our guests- both the creativity and the ease of use. Even the older generation contributed! We would definitely recommend SimpleRegistry!

SimpleRegistry was super easy to use and set-up. We did a cash registry because we had already moved in together, and we needed money to pay for our wedding, but we did not need any gifts. We elected to have people pay the credit card fees (versus it being held from us) as a way to encourage them to bring us checks and cash. It worked... sort-of! There are always those people who just HAVE to buy you something off your registry which is so silly, but for those people, this was our perfect solution. I have "value" rated as the lowest rating here because I know credit card processing fees are not nearly as much as what they charge on SimpleRegistry. Otherwise, we had a great experience. Thank you!

We both have lived on our own and then together for a number of years, so didn't need any household items. Because basically all of the stores you can register at only sell household items, this was not a great option for us. Simple Registry allowed our guests to choose fun activities we would actually be spending money on in the future (Honeymoon activities, dinners out, etc.), and items we actually needed (a hammer drill, coffee for a year, artwork, etc.). The registering part was really fun and easy, and it can all be done from the comfort of your home in a few minutes. This was also important to us as we both work and didn't have much time to spend a day or two visiting a store to register. All in all it was a great experience and we have recommended Simple Registry to a number of our friends getting married!

I used simple registry as my only wedding registry page. It worked great for me and my husband because we were able to customize the page to include exactly the things that we needed. You can add pictures from the internet of items that you would like- you don't just have to use their suggested items. The feedback from our guests was that the site was very easy to use and convenient. We could cash our money in as we needed it, as many times as we wanted. The only thing is that you have to wait 72 hours after a gift was purchased before you can transfer it to your account. This wasn't a problem at all for me and my husband, and this is probably the same as any other cash gifting site. One thing to know is that this site takes 5% of the gift, but you can either pay this out of the gift or have your guest pay it on top of your gift. (If they give $100 it will total $105 at checkout if you have your guest pay). This was a competitive rate, and the best deal for us compared to many of the other cash registry sites. And if you think about it, 5% is less than your guest would pay for shipping on a traditional registry site. I would definitely recommend this site! Worked great for us!

I found this website to be an ideal place for creating a cash registry for our wedding. The interface was clean and easy to customize. We decided to create broad gift options like "Travel", "Lodging", etc so that our friends would get an idea as to what the money would go towards, at the same time giving us the flexibility of using the cash in the way we want.

SimpleRegistry was one of the best vendor choices I made for our 2013 wedding. It not only helped guests see what they were giving money for, it collected their addresses and made it SO easy for me to send thank you notes. It was well worth the small fee to use it.

Now for the other gifts I received AT the wedding... I'm still struggling to write the thank you notes, remember exactly what was in each envelope, and find all of the addresses to mail them.

Simpleregistry was a tremendous help to our wedding. I am a veteran and my husband is still serving so we had friends and family coming from all over and some who couldn't make it. Having a single website that they could go to and skip the shipping fees or having to bring gifts on planes was a great thing for our guests.

SimpleRegistry allowed us to register for our honeymoon, which was exactly what we needed! As a career professional who has lived alone for years, I had no need for traditional registry items. We did need some money for our honeymoon, so SimpleRegistry did it all! It took me 20-30 minutes to break down what we needed into easy payments and then put the link on our wedding website. Getting the money was extremely easy and we didn't have to pay a dime for our honeymoon. A perfect win win!

I thought this was a great idea and easy for us. i had no desire to do a foral registry anywhere and all we really wanted was money. I think some people shied away becasue of the fee charged but to be honest for the convenienc I think it is worth it and i woudl pay it.

It was a cool idea but only one friend used it to send us a gift. Also organizing gifts is difficult and I didn't particularly like the layout. I feel that I wasted a lot of time and no one used it. They did send us a check very quickly for the one gift we did receive. Had guests used the website it might be worth while. My guests were not tech savvy and many would also no RSVP on our wedding website. Moral of the story: know your guests' technical abilities. .

Simple Registry was simple to set up and share with our wedding guests. The only part I was unclear about was setting up the registry to withdraw the cut from each gift from our total rather than add onto our guests' totals. I would have set that up differently if it was more clear during the setup. Other than that, it was a positive experience.

This was a nice viable alternative to registering at a retail store for gift items. My guests actually had fun picking wine tours and different home improvement packages for us. Some of our guests donated to a couple national charities, so it made the gift picking fun and creative! Simple Registry Company was very easy to work with. There were times I could not log in so easily, this is the reason not giving them full scale 5 but otherwise very kind and responsive when I contacted customer service. Very good idea for registry!

We used the SimpleRegistry for our Wedding Registry, and as it states, it was very simple to set up. The customize features allowed us to make it our own, and our guests were able to navigate it easily and gave us good feedback on the way it looked and worked. We got an email each time someone used it, and the site created a thank you page for us with all the information needed to send out Thank Yous. We paid a one time fee, and never had to pay again for any gifts through the site. Once it was done, we requested the funds, and received them very quickly. It was a fun, convenient, and fast experience all around. We would recommend this site to anyone wishing to create an online registry. In fact, we were referred to them from a friend! Thanks!

Simple Registry is very easy to use and many of our guests used it to give us gifts. We chose this over another cash registry site because it was more flexible in letting us set up categories and the amount and number of each gift in each category. They also have a great database of pictures to choose from for each gift (or you can use your own pictures). We found the "thank you list" feature helpful while working on our thank you notes, but it would have been ideal if this was combined with the "gift history" feature so you can see name, address, gift amount, and gift date all in one page. But this was a pretty minor issue. The other negative is of course they charge a fee for each gift so some guests might prefer to just give you a check. But this is another option that might be more convenient for some guests.

Simple Registry was the exact solution that my husband and I were looking for when it came to our wedding registry. We already lived together, and didn't want to register for household goods that we didn't really need. With all the money we spent on the wedding and honeymoon, we thought if people REALLY wanted to give us gifts, cash was all we needed. I thought this was a little tacky and was hesitant to commit to a cash registry... but when I found SimpleRegistry I had high hopes. I was worried that we would loose a percentage of the money, that it would cost us something to use the service... but it was free! I still don't understand how they do that, but I was overjoyed with it just the same. The interface was nice, clean and classy. I loved that we could write a personal message to our guests and add pictures, it made it feel very personal and not just "give us money!" And it was super easy to get our gifts after the wedding too! You can have them mail you a check or you can enter your bank info and have them send one electronically (direct deposit), or you can have them send your funds to Paypal. Overall our experience with SimpleRegistry was perfect, their service is awesome and I will definitely be recommending them!

SimpleRegistry was super convenient for us, and our guests absolutely loved it because they were able to purchase items for us (like drinks on a cruise or an excursion) that they otherwise wouldn't have found. It made a lot of our guests happy since a significant number of them don't like to give just money inside of a card. It was unique!

Its okay. But beware that they do charge a fee for every gift. The person giving the gift is given the option to pay it for you, if they don't pay a fee then it is deducted from the amount automatically when you choose your method of withdraw. Also my hubby and I were on honey moon and wanted to transfer money to our bank account and they did not save our information for the transfer from the last time we did it! We didn't have our check book with us on or honeymoon so we had to wait to get out money. Overall I wouldn't recommend this service. I only had two people actually leave me a gift on here and it was a hassle that cost me money. Call me old fashioned but a card with cash in it is the way to go!

SimpleRegistry Wedding Registry responded with the following comments:

Hi Ashley:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our service. I understand why you are frustrated. Unfortunately we don't have a choice in charging a fee since we allow guests to give gifts using their credit card. Some don't realize this, but processing credit cards costs every business money. Online, it's around 2.5% per transaction. So the service fee covers this and leaves a bit for us to keep the lights on and pay our awesome staff. Finally, for security reasons, we don't keep any bank information when a customer redeems their gifts through a bank transfer. This will continue to be our policy as outlined by our bank and some of the top banking security organizations in the United States. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with any other questions or concerns.

It was very convenient to have an online place to do the registry but I never figured how to order the actual items from the Simple Registry site and ending up just having the cash sent to my account. Now I have to take time to go and order the items online or go out shopping for them. I was hoping to avoid that by using Simple Registry. The set up is simple but the phrasing and words they use is a little casual, but it seems that other sites are moving to a more casual format too, so I don't know that it is something that will change.

If I would have understood this site better, I would not have used it. It was recommended to me by my maid of honor because it looked like it would save me and my guests time and energy. If my guests would have been able to purchase gifts directly and have them sent to me that would have been much easier. Instead, the money was put in a secure account that I had to access so it could be transferred my account so I could purchase the gifts. It was a pain to do but it was also a little easier because we didn't have to return things when people bought duplicates. We just put the cash towards something else on our list or in our house savings fund.

I highly recommend Simple Registry as an online registry option. We used them for our honeymoon registry and this gave the option for our guests to gift a specific activity or give a general gift amount. Also, this is one of the few websites that allows the guests to use credit cards. Once most of our gifts were received we only had to wait a few days for an electronic check to be delivered to our bank accounts and we were all set for our honeymoon!

We were able to easily add a lot of items to our registry for people to have the option to 'purchase' for us. I wish the fee was a little less if someone paid via another method besides credit card, or the fee was just lower overall. But it was a nice way to give another option for people to give us gifts, even big gifts were multiple people all contribute, and let us go and purchase the items later. The instant email notifications when something was purchased was nice. It was a little bit of work to go and remember to transfer the funds after the few day waiting period versus having the option to do automatic transfer.

We loved using SimpleRegistry for our wedding. We had just bought a new house and knew that individual guests couldn't afford to buy us things like a whole refrigerator or couch, so this was a great way to break them down into manageable options. We've had friends come over since the wedding and ask if they can make dinner in their 1/6 of the oven. The site was also extremely easy to use and change up, and it let us add funny descriptions and personalize the experience. It's an added bonus that the staff seems to have a great sense of humor - I enjoyed all of their correspondence, even the form stuff. Would (will?) definitely use this site again!

It was so easy and our guests loved that they could give what they like or contribute toward our honeymoon. When we went to redeem our contributions right before our honeymoon last week the funds transferred quickly and easily. No hidden fees or complications. Plus, I loved getting emails when folks contributed. Thanks for a painless process!

This was an easy way to set up a registry. We live in a small town and wanted the flexibility to support local businesses. It also allowed us to have different types of items on one registry - donations to nonprofits, traditional gifts, honeymoon experiences and so forth. We also have limited space in our small house so this allowed us to purchase items when we needed them rather than having a bunch of gifts with no place to put them.
