All about Etsy new wedding gift registry

How To Create A New Wedding Gift Registry On Etsy

For couples wanting to get started with their wedding planning experience, creating your own gift registry on Etsy is super easy. Visit and click the 'Create a wedding registry' button. If you know your wedding date, you can input it or you can move forward without a set date and add your wedding date at a later time. Your registry stays private until you choose to publish it, so you have a lot of flexibility to change and arrange your registry as you'd like.

To start adding gifts to your wedding registry, find an item on Etsy you love, click the heart icon on the product image to 'Favorite' it, and then 'Add to collection or registry' to place it on your registry. That's it!

How To Share Your Etsy Gift Registry

When you're ready, you can select to have your registry available publicly or to only those who have the direct link. Choose your preference and share away! Etsy will email you confirmation that your registry is ready to share and give you Share options from there. You can also click on the 'Share' button on your registry dashboard that will copy the link to your device so you can paste on your wedding website or social media.

Guests can also find your published registry by searching via 'Find a registry' with your first names. However, we advise to avoid recommending this feature to your guests right now since it appears to be a bit flooded with names and past weddings with no filters available.

Frequently Asked Questions About Etsy's Gift Registry

We have gone through the whole Etsy registry creation process ourselves to learn the ins and outs, and from that, we came up with some answers to some questions you might have.

Q: Does it cost anything to have a registry?
A: No! It's free to create and use. All you need is an Etsy account.

Q: Can I use Etsy's wedding registry for another occasion?
A: Absolutely! We think it's perfect for baby showers and housewarming gifting, too! It's not wedding-branded on your dashboard or on the guest's view, so it would seamlessly fit in with any other event.

Q: Can I have more than one Etsy registry at a time?
A: No, but we found you can delete any current registry and create new ones on the website.

Q: Is there a limit to how many items I can add to the Etsy registry?
A: Thank goodness, no! But we recommend not having too little nor too many as it can be overwhelming for your guests and/or may come across as your not being intentional with your registry. For a wedding with 100 guests, we recommend adding at least 200 items at all price points collectively on all of your gift registries. Having multiple gifting options beyond an online registry is important (e.g., honeymoon experiences, cash, local brick-and-mortar store, etc). For more wedding registry tips, check out our how to make a great wedding registry or what to include on your wedding registry.

Q: Is group buying an option on the Etsy registry?
A: No, but you can change the quantities of however many of the items you want.

Q: Can I add non-Etsy things like cash on my registry?
A: No. You'll need to create different registry lists on other websites. (For weddings, the rule of thumb is to have 3 different gift registries, again, with various price points and purchase accessibility!)

Q: Can I use the Etsy app to build my registry?
A: At this time, you can only create and add things to your registry via the Etsy website. We are hoping they add app functionality in the near future!

Q: I'm not getting married for a few years. Can I still create one?
A: Yes! There is no time limit to your registry from what we could find. For real wedding world advice though, if you don't have a confirmed venue yet, we recommend waiting to create your registry until you do. This helps streamline communication with your guests.
