You know how wild Buddy the Elf goes when he hears Santa is coming to the mall? That’s how I feel when I hear there’s a Macy’s in sight …. in person or on the web.
My eyes light up thinking of all the ways life can be decorated at Macy’s – especially when you’re planning your wedding. With all of their amazing resources – the wedding shop, their bridal registry, an amazing love-it list – there’s no better one-stop shop for all things wedding.
Here are a few of my favorite things Macy’s has up their sleeve for brides.
All in one place, you can dress your bridesmaids and groomsmen, find your Maid of Honor the perfect gift, get shiny shoes for your stud of a future husband, find a gorgeous necklace for your mother and mother-in-law, and round up your favorite makeup for the day of and all the big days leading up to it.
The best part is the “shop by occasion” feature where you’ll find a fabulous collection of things for each of your big wedding events. You can shop for your bridal shower, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, and even for “something blue”. Your guests and wedding party can also shop within the experience and you can use Macy’s brand new “love-it list” to collect your favorite things and share them with your friends.
Let’s face it, working on your bridal registry is a blast. You get to shop for all the things you and your hubba hubba want but there’s no swiping a card at the end. Macy’s registry is one of the more widely used registries and for tons of good reasons.
First, you get great discounts. I’m talking 20% off shoes and handbags, 25% men’s suits and tuxes, 20% off invitations, and more. The perks are endless.
Next, you’ve got so many options and tools for you and your guests. Macy’s Dream Fund is especially awesome because your guests can contribute funds to your Dream Fund gift card, rather than search for specific gifts, that you can spend on absolutely anything. It’s a good way to check off all of your newlywed needs plus it takes away some shopping anxiety for your friends and family.
There’s tons of fun to have in-store too. You can book a private appointment with one of Macy’s trusty registry consultants or get down with music, cocktails, experts and other couples at a Sip and Scan™ event.
At these events, you’ll get the lowdown on products you’re interested in adding to your registry, plus be able to get a feel for them right there. You can chat with other couples going through the same wedding process and share tips and tricks with them and the dedicated experts at Macy’s. It’s a fun way to celebrate and plan with a like-minded group!
