A New Take On Gift Registries

I recently had the pleasure of meeting one of the innovative creators of Wedding Republic, Hana Abaza, and loved what she had to say about her online registry:

With a Wedding Republic gift registry, you can create a gift list that reflects what you really want. Basically, your registry is a cash fund. You can select your gifts so guests can see what they are contributing towards, and at the end of the day you get the cash. This gives you the ultimate flexibility to use the registry (and cash) to get the most out of your gifts!

It’s easy and convenient for both you and your guests. Nothing is off limits: from camping gear to a big screen TV to that chic plate set only available at a niche store that’s locally owned, you can set up a gift registry that is perfect for the two of you!

Choose gifts from their gift list add your own. You add the photo, cost and description of your ideal gifts. You can even add expensive gifts and break them apart using WR’s Puzzle Piece feature. Guests can then buy “piece” of the puzzle!

Guests pay a small percentage fee on every gift transaction (currently 4.5%). Creating, managing and sharing the registry is completely free for the happy couple, making the gift process for your wedding stress free and fun!

WR is going to be a huge hit with couples - who wouldn't love help saving for a down payment on a home or that dream honeymoon you wish you could go on? To learn more, visit them online at
