    FAQs: Creating Your Wedding Registry on The Knot

    What is a registry profile on The Knot?

    Your registry profile on The Knot is unique to you and your fiancé. Once you log into your registry account, you'll be taken to an overview page. At the top, there's a handy summary showing how many gifts you've added to your wish list, how many have been purchased and how many days are left until you say "I do." The overview page also features helpful tips and ideas for completing your registry.

    You'll be able to see all of your registry items through your profile on The Knot under the "Manage Registry" tab. This handy page groups all of your registry items from multiple retailers in one place for easy sharing and management. Click on "View as Guest" in the top right-hand corner for a sneak peek of what your loved ones will see when they're directed to your registry.

    Other helpful tabs in your profile include a functional checklist of registry items, a gift-tracking page for keeping tabs on who bought what and a settings tab where you can add a note for guests, edit your shipping address and more.

    Who are The Knot's registry partners?

    The Knot Registry is directly partnered with a selection of retailers who also offer wedding registry services. So, what exactly does that mean for your registry on The Knot? If you've created a separate wish list with any of our retail partners, it'll automatically sync to your profile on The Knot Registry. That means all your wish lists will be in one easy-to-access place for guests. We've partnered with the following top registry retailers:

    • Amazon
    • Anthropologie
    • Belk
    • Bloomingdale's
    • CB2
    • Crate & Barrel
    • Dillard's
    • GEARYS
    • GoFundMe
    • Macy's
    • Pottery Barn
    • REI
    • SPUR Experiences
    • Sur La Table
    • Target
    • Traveler's Joy
    • West Elm
    • Williams Sonoma

    If you're wondering how to add a retailer registry like Amazon to The Knot, it will automatically sync to your profile as long as you signed up with the same email address. One thing to note: It may take up to 72 hours for a newly created registry to display online.

    If your retailer registry isn't appearing for any reason (e.g. you used a different email address), you can manually add it instead. Simply select "Add Store Registries" from the Registry dropdown menu in the top navigation bar. Scroll down to where it says "Option Two: Link Your Store Registries" and select the specific store from the dropdown menu. From there, paste the URL for that registry into the text box and select "Link Now."

    If you have a registry with a retailer that's not listed above, you can add that to your profile manually too. Follow the same instructions as before, but instead of selecting a specific retailer, choose "Add Another Store." You'll be prompted to add the name of the store and a link to your registry. Then, just click "Add Now."

    Does The Knot Registry charge a fee?

    The Knot Registry is a free service for couples to set up and share their wedding wish lists. You won't be charged a fee at any step in the process. Not only that, but you can also set up a free wedding website with us which will sync automatically with your registry.

    Can I add my wedding website link to my registry profile?

    If you created your wedding website with us as well as your registry, we've got good news. Your registries will automatically display on your wedding website and the wedding website link will automatically display on your registry profile. You can choose to hide it at any time by updating your display settings. Don't have a wedding website yet? You can set one up through your registry profile by clicking on "Manage Your Wedding Website" in the settings tab.

    FAQs: Managing Your Wedding Registry on The Knot

    How do I add items to my registry on The Knot?

    Using The Knot Registry Store is easy, especially when it comes to adding items. If you're browsing collections, you can quickly and conveniently add gifts to your wish list by clicking the "+" button on the bottom left corner of the product image. If you want to find out more about a particular item before adding it, click on the product, read more about it, then select "Add To Registry."

    Want to add items to The Knot Registry from another website? You don't have to create a whole new wish list with another retailer just to add one or two things from their store. Instead, download our handy browser button. You can drag the button directly from the bottom of your registry overview page to your bookmarks bar, where it appears as "Add to The Knot." Go to the website and item you want to add and click on your browser button. You can edit the name, price and quantity before officially adding it to your wish list.

    How can I edit my name or wedding date on my registry profile?

    To change your name or wedding details on The Knot, log in and then click on "Your Account" in the top right-hand corner. To update personal information like your name and address, go to "Your Profile." If you want to edit the date or location of your wedding (which also appears for guests on your registry), go to "Wedding Details." Just make sure you save any changes afterward.

    As an extension of our partnership with the top registry retailers, we make it easy for your family and friends to find all of your registries in one convenient spot. To ensure that the name and wedding date on your store registries are the most current, make sure each retailer has the most up-to-date information in their system. It may take up to 72 hours for any changes to appear on your The Knot registry profile. If you've updated your information with your retailer and it's still not appearing on your profile, contact customer service at help@theknot.com for help.

    If we display a registry on your profile that doesn't belong to you or that you don't want to share, you can easily hide or remove it. Log into your registry profile and go to the "Manage Registry" tab. At the top of the page, there'll be a list of your linked stores. If you select the retailer you want to remove from your wish list, a "Store Details" window will appear. To hide (but not delete) a store registry from The Knot, click on the toggle under "Store Visibility" to switch off visibility of that particular retailer on your registry. If you want to remove it from your wedding wish list altogether, select "Remove This Store From Your Registry."

    Can I mark gifts as purchased on The Knot Registry?

    We do our best to make sure we're always showing you the most up-to-date purchase status. If it looks like something's out of date, try refreshing the page or refer to the retailer website for the latest information on purchase status. For store registries, it can take a few hours to a few days for purchase information to be updated depending on the retailer, especially if guests are shopping in store.

    Can I update a partner registry from within my registry profile?

    While you can add, hide and remove retailer registries using your profile on The Knot, any updates to your registry items need to be made on the retailer's website or in their stores. We aim to update any changes to your registry profile ASAP—you might just need to refresh the page to see them.

    Can I remove items from my registry?

    To remove items from a retailer registry, you'll need to log into your account with that retailer. If the item you want to remove was added from The Knot Registry Store or using your "Add to The Knot" browser button, you can easily delete it from your wish list. Go to "Manage Registry" in your registry profile, click on the item you want to remove to bring up the "Gift Details" window, then select "Remove Gift From Registry."

    FAQs: Sharing Your Wedding Registry on The Knot

    Can I make my registry private or password protected?

    You can't password-protect or hide your registry on The Knot without doing so to your wedding website as well. The guest view of your registry is always accessible unless you make your whole wedding website unfindable, which could pose a challenge for loved ones wanting to browse the wish list you spent hours thoughtfully putting together. Without hiding your wedding registry, guests can find it easily by searching your names, wedding month and year on The Knot's wedding registry search page.

    How do I share my registry on The Knot?

    In addition to automatically syncing to your wedding website, you can manually share your wedding registry too. Go to your registry profile settings and select "Copy Link" under your registry URL. From there, it's up to you where you want to share it. You can add it to your shower invitations, share it via email or copy the link to social media.

    Can I choose which registries I want to display?

    You have complete control over which of your synced wedding registries are shown to guests. As mentioned, you can hide linked stores under the "Manage Registry" tab of your profile. Simply hide the ones you don't want to share and leave the ones you do.

    Can guests view my registry if they're not a member of The Knot?

    We want to make the registry experience a breeze for you and your loved ones. That's why your guests can view and purchase items from your registry on The Knot without having an account.

    How do I delete my registry from The Knot?

    If you want to permanently delete your registry from The Knot search results and search engines, please contact customer service at help@theknot.com with your registry link and the email associated with your account. To permanently delete registries you've synced from other retailers, you'll need to log into your account with each retailer or contact their customer service.
