Envelope Registry is simply beautiful, and a pleasure to use. Couples answer a few questions and then start building their registry from over 200 items. The items range from things like “appliances for the kitchen”, “indoor plants” or “ceramics” to activities and experiences like “dance lessons” or items for your honeymoon “like beach cocktails” or a “sunset cruise.”

Unlike other online registries Envelope’s items aren’t tided to particular supplier, rather Envelope collects cash contributions from your guests and sends it directly to your bank account. What’s more it free to use, your guests pay a small fee on check out.
