The way we furnish our homes says a lot about our lifestyles and our personalities, and creating an environment that reflects these ideals is no simple task. For many, the bulk of furnishing a home comes with marriage and, subsequently, the all-important wedding registry.

Creating a wedding registry is an exciting opportunity to outfit a home, but it can also be a frustrating and tedious project. We found one company whose goal is to change that.


Thanks to its clean, simple design and impressive features, Blueprint Registry is simplifying the traditional wedding registry experience while expanding the options available to newlyweds.

The free service allows couples to create a personalized profile and select home goods from a large selection of retailers. Choices include registry staples such as Crate and Barrel, Anthropologie and Amazon, as well as boutique and specialty product lines. The “Add to Blueprint” bookmark button lets you add registry items in one click while browsing the web.

Our favorite part of the experience is that it allows couples to break down the process and search for items room by room. You can collect both the essentials and the decor items one space at a time, making it easier to put together accents for your dream living room, and harder to forget utensils for your kitchen.

For higher-priced items, multiple guests can contribute to a “group gift” — so you can get that modern sectional or Vitamix blender you’ve had your eye on.

At a time when many newlyweds already have most of their household essentials before marriage, Blueprint enables them to go beyond home goods with an Experience Room, where guests can contribute to designated cash gifts. It’s a simple (and low-fee) way to fund a honeymoon, mortgage or other monetary investment.

For the modern couple furnishing a modern home, it only makes sense to create a modern approach. The design, function and capabilities of Blueprint Registry make it a great place to register for wedding gifts from a variety of retailers for your newly combined household.
