MyRegistry.com is a truly global gift registry & wishlist service that allows its users to add items from literally any store in the world, whether that store is online, your favorite around-the-corner boutique, or halfway around the globe. Until now, access to gifts from choice retail establishments depended on housing your bridal registry with them, and stores that were out of your geographic area were off limits. With MyRegistry.com, all of your favorite stores are within reach, no matter where you live. You can add as many items as you wish to your registry, from as many stores as you like — all under one centralized, easy-to-use online registry.
MyRegistry.com allows you to add registry items from ANY WEBSITE, which was the draw for my husband and I. You aren't stuck to just one vendor. However, I think many of my guests were hesitant to use it because it works a little differently than traditional registries.
We wanted a registry that didn't confine us to just one or two stores, and this one seemed to fit the bill. Unfortunately, the site is still a bit cumbersome, and since they interface with outside sites over which they have no control, the service is only as good as the outside sites. Adding to and tracking gifts on the registry was a snap, but a couple guests had issues ordering from outside sites. Also, when we received items, the lack of paperwork from the shipper meant that we didn't know who gave them to us. The MyRegistry customer service folks were responsive though, and hopefully they will work with some of the bigger online vendors to iron out the kinks as things move forward.
