Amazon.com’s New and Improved Wedding Registry (Giveaway!)

**Read til the end of this post for an exclusive Amazon.com sponsored giveaway!! Win a selection of products shown here**
It’s wedding season (although lately, it’s been feeling like when is it NOT?), so it’s the perfect time to tell you about Amazon.com’s updated Wedding Registry which makes it even easier to craft your list! Here are some benefits I learned about recently:

Room guides: where couples can find all the products they need by each room of their home.
Similar Registries: Couples can look to the Similar Registries lists on Amazon to see what other couples are registering for based on what is currently on their registry, by region or by wedding month.
Connect via social networks: share your wedding registry via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Easier than ever for guests to find your registry: Guests can simply type in the couples name followed by โ€œregistryโ€ in the Amazon.comโ€™s homepage search bar.
Amazing selections: couples can register for not just kitchen items, but anything from bikes and tents to books and electronics.
Thank you card manager: stores all the guests who ordered from your Wedding Registry by Amazon in one place for easy reference.

    Modern Nostalgia is completely my style..I adore the traveler cargo suitcase and the KitchenAid blender..both remind me of traveling and cooking up a storm with my family!

    What an amazing giveaway! I think the Modern Nostalgia is my style mostly because I have a love/hate relationship with food and exercise, I would be able to cook up a storm with the Kitchen Aide Mixer and Bar Blender all while not feeling guilty because after I could ride the beautiful bike to work it all off!

    This is great!!!!! I love this!!!
    I am more like the Tastefully Timeless and the Eco Chic that combination is fabulous. I love the clarosonic tooth brushes. Mine just stopped working this week and my fiance’s too a little while ago. As a couple that soon will start creating a life together this is a great way to figure out our styles in choosing together what we will need in our new home. Besides, I love Amazon I am excited that we can also do our wedding registry here. Yey to Amazon!!!! :-))

    This is SO cool. I’m getting married next year and this is the perfect way to organize your registry items based on your personality!! Also – the thank you card manager is AWESOME – I remember when my sister got married. Thank you cards can be really hard to manage when you are writing gifts into a notebook. My favorite grouping is Tastefully Timeless. Why? Because I love classic items that you can put your own modern twist on. You can use these items for years and they never go out of style. I love shopping for quality pieces like that. The Rachael Ray porcelain enamel nonstick cookware would be an AWESOME (and much needed) addition to my kitchen. The Mikasa Place setting is gorgeous (and so classic!). One thing that happens to be a part of a different group though is the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and have been wanting to have my own FOREVER. I bought my sister one (from Amazon!) a few years ago and now I have major Kitchen Aid stand mixer envy whenever I visit her.

    Tastefully timeless –

    Not for myself… But I would be ecstatic to give this to my sister, Samira! Her wedding is this summer. I love my sister, but she does need a jump start in the kitchen, this would definitely help!!!!

    Amazon has been my staple go to for years. And as the honorary wedding planner going on past few family weddings it’s definitely come in handy.

    Each of the above packages has its perks… But waterford, Lenox, le creuset, Rachel ray — oh my!!

    Thank you!!

    I forgot to describe why Tastefully timeless is close to my taste. Well I love food and making it so the cookware set and place settings are a given! Afer I’m done eating what better than to use an amazing toothbrush like the Sonicare. I graduated from nursing school so SLEEP is a memory so the egyptian sateen sheet set will definitely be useful after a long 12 hours shift! And Im a do-it-yourself kind of girl so the drill kit would be amazing!

    I have been following you for awhile (old fan) and here is my tweet!

    I like the modern nostalgia to describe my tastes. I absolutely love the 50s, but I don’t want to go search thrift stores for actual items from the 50s. I’d rather find newer items in cute retro colors and styles to mix and match in my home.
