While mega retailers like Nordstrom, Crate & Barrel and Bed, Bath & Beyond have had a wedding registry for years, electronics giant Best Buy is finally entering the game with its own Wedding Registry!
That’s right, folks. This month, Best Buy launches its wedding registry in hopes of attracting more couples to its blue and yellow awning. And with today’s popularity of tech gadgets, we think it makes a lot of sense.
Though known for big ticket items like flat screen TVs, the electronic retailer sells a lot of household items perfect for the modern couple’s wedding registry needs. From blenders and espresso machines for that new kitchen to super-awesome Sonos speakers for entertaining to cameras for the honeymoon, there are plenty of items to choose from. Plus, did you know Best Buy sells luggage? I bet not!
Best Buy’s Wedding Registry has indispensable features like group gifting, which will help wedding guests spend the amount they want to help you get bigger ticket items and of course free shipping with no minimum purchase.
Though the latest industry trend has been moving toward online wedding registries like Zola, MyRegistry and Wanderable, the majority of today’s couples still go the traditional retailer route. I think Best Buy has all the right components for entering the wedding registry game if it’s able to overhaul the popular notion of its restrictive selection. It will be interesting to see how couples take interest in the upcoming 2015 wedding season.
