In case you missed it, Amazon recently eclipsed traditional retailers in a section of once-hallowed ground: wedding registries. Ranking higher than Macy's and even ahead of fresher faces like Zola, Amazon is now considered the most popular wedding registry site in the country. It's already where as much as 75% of US online shoppers buy holiday gifts - so it's not exactly surprising the trend has reached soon-to-be newlyweds.It also has a cornucopia of perks. An Amazon Wedding Registry means you can register for pretty much anything - from camping tents to board games to champagne glasses - all in one spot. It has the world's largest selection, and all eligible gifts will get fast and free two-day shipping. Unlike many brands with only a couple national warehouses, Amazon has 140 fulfillment centers in over 29 states so no matter where you are, you'll likely be able to get your gift delivered in two days or less. In case you don't love it, you'll have 180 days to return gifts.
Guests can also "group gift" items with a higher price tag. Once you enable Group Gifts on one or more items in your Amazon Wedding Registry, guests will be able to see the amount already contributed as well as the remaining contribution amount available. You can even add personal notes, pictures, and highlights on the items you love so that guests have a better idea of why you picked something.
You can also save up to 20% off in a "special completion discount" on any items left on your registry that you still want to buy, and Amazon will keep a running list of who purchased which gift so you can easily send out thank you messages after the wedding.
But Amazon's intense variety can also be a hurdle to curating a useful, pared-down list of the essentials needed for married life. Below, you'll find 30 of the best options to consider as a jumping-off point.
