How Does Amazon Wedding Registry Work?

The Amazon wedding registry is a great way to get going with your wedding planning and you can set it up well in advance of your big day.

I started this wedding registry series with How to Get Started With Your Wedding Registry on Amazon.

In that article, I shared the perks of setting up your wedding registry on Amazon and how you’ll save precious time by using Amazon wedding registry.

This article provides a step-by-step guide to setting up and personalizing your wedding registry on Amazon in as little as 10 minutes.

There are millions of items on Amazon to choose from and there are no limits to the type of gifts you can add to your registry.

How to set up an Amazon wedding registry - step by step

How to Set Up a Wedding Registry on Amazon

There are 7 steps to setting up your Amazon wedding registry and it takes less than 10 minutes. I’ve laid out the steps below:-

Step 1

It starts with adding you and your fiancé’s name. Click next.

Step 2

Add the date of the wedding. If you’re unsure of the date, you can put a tentative date. It can be changed later on. 

Step 3

Add the approximate number of guests. This will help the Gift Advisor feature make best suggestions. 

Step 4

Mention if you’re registering somewhere else. If you are, you can consolidate items from other retailers with your Amazon Wedding Registry.

Step 5

Add the address you would like your gifts shipped to

Step 6

Privacy options. Your list can be public or private. If public, anyone can find it. If private, you will have to send the link to your guests for access.

You can also make your wedding registry searchable on theknot.com.

Step 7

Opt-in for emails so you’ll receive notifications and other information regarding your wedding registry

You’re all set up. You should receive a confirmation email from Amazon with more information.

Click to start adding items to your wedding registry. There’s also a Gift Advisor available that will help you figure out what to add to your registry list.

Any item you click on will have a button next to it to choose quantity, color, etc, and add to your wedding registry.

How Do I Organize My Amazon Wedding Registry?

After setting up your wedding registry account, there are several different ways to organize your wedding registry:-

  • You can utilize Gift Advisor to assist you with organizing your gifts.
  • You can go to categories and start adding gifts from across different lifestyle categories.
  • There is an option to add the most popular gifts
  • You can add gifts according to rooms such as office, garage, patio, kitchen, smart home, bedroom, etc. 
  • You can add gifts by hobbies such as travel, health, and wellness, travel, beauty, gift cards, etc.
  • Finally, you can add gifts from any number of your favorite brands such as Philips, Kate Spade, Vitamix, Samsung, etc. 

Amazon makes it very easy to add and remove gifts from your wedding registry without having to leave Amazon at all.

Additionally, there is a menu in the top right corner where you can find someone else’s registry and organize thank you notes for the people who sent you gifts.

Within the settings available in the menu, you can change names, dates, delivery addresses, enable group gifting and also delete the registry.

And if you get stuck on something along the way, there is a comprehensive Wedding Registries help page where you can search for answers. See it HERE.

How to Share Your Amazon Wedding Registry?

If your registry is private, there is an option to copy your link and share it with your guests via email or social media.

You can also customize the link with any cutesy name or nickname you have in mind and add a picture of the couple to the page.

Can You Return Items from Amazon Registry?

You sure can. You have 180 days after purchase to return any gift or exchange it for something else.
