Add Your Gift Registry

Everybody loves presents, and sometimes it’s a relief to know exactly what to give rather than having to come up with the unique, clever, meaningful, beautiful, never-been-done perfect gift. This is why we love registries. 

Of course, not everybody will want a registry or feel the need to include it on their website and app. You can, therefore, add or remove the section as your preferences (or need for that gravy boat you saw last weekend) change. Click here to see how to remove the Registry section.

To start you’ll want to navigate to the main “Registry” page from your admin dashboard.

1) Add a link to your existing registry, or create a new registry

To add links that will take your guests directly to your online registries, click on the Manage tab at the top of the Registry Page. Under External Registries click ‘link an existing registry.’

A dialog box will appear where you can paste your registry URL under ‘Registry Link.’ The site will show the icon for the registry site (such as the Crate and Barrel logo below). If we can’t find a logo for your registry, no problem, you can type in a registry title to display on our website. Add as many links as you would like following the same process. You can even include a Honeymoon fund or PayPal link for those cash registries.

If you haven’t picked out a registry yet, we’ve picked our favorite registry providers and you can see those at the bottom of the page under the Browse Tab. When you find one you like click the “Create New Registry” button and we’ll send you to the website of the store you’ve selected.

After you’ve completed creating your registry, when you come back to Joy, simply paste in the registry link you created and we’ll display it on your wedding website.

2) Edit your Welcome Note

Personalize your page with your registry message: remember, this is the last thing your guests will read before deciding how much money they want to spend on you!

To do this, click on Edit Welcome note, then edit the text in the text box and click “Save Note”.

3) Change the order of your stores

To change the order of how the registries appear on your page, click “Reorder List”. You can then drag and drop your registries in whatever order you like. When you’re finished, click “Finish”.

4) Delete a registry (in case you have any unwanted extra)

In case you need to remove one of the registries, click on the Manage tab, then the registry you want to remove. This will then open another box. Click on the “Delete Registry” on the bottom left corner of that box and this will successfully remove the registry from your registry page!
