After you’ve selected your wedding date and booked your venue, there are a few key boxes left to tick at the top of your wedding to do list. Setting up your registry is absolutely one of them. This is your chance to put together your wish list of gifts for all stages of your celebration: engagement, showers and the actual big day. Having a registry is such a benefit to your nearest and dearest as it takes the guess work out of gifting. It’s also one of the best parts of wedding planning (does it get any better than creating your ultimate shopping list?!) and Hudson’s Bay has just re-launched their registry program to make the process easier, faster and seriously fun.
At Hudson’s Bay you can literally start your wedding registry in less than a minute! An in-store appointment can be made to help you get scanning but it’s not required. A easy-to-use interface on the store’s computers and ipads allows you to quickly enter your information, then you are ready to start scanning your most wanted using your mobile device. You can also easily double team your shopping by having you scan with your smartphone and your partner use one of Hudson’s Bay compact mobile scanners. Once you are set up, you can come back and add items to your wishlist at anytime with a quick scan, or do so online at home in your pjs. Think #registerandchill!
Other cool features of Hudson’s Bay new registry includes a profile progress feature which shows you how your gift list is progressing and makes it possible to publish your registry so all wedding guests can see what to purchase. You can also select gift faves so guests know what’s at the top of your list and Hudson’s Bay registry calculator helps you determine the right number of gifts to include at all price points. Hudson’s Bay’s AutoLocate feature of the Hudson’s Bay system also makes it a breeze for a guest to buy a gift at any store location across Canada. If the store does not have the product requested a store associate can AutoLocate the item and have it shipped directly to you. Want to share your registry digitally?
