Crate & Barrel, Macy's, and Target are no longer the only big players in town when it comes to wedding registries. Minnesota-based electronics giant Best Buy proved it wants a piece of the bridal business pie yesterday when it entered the market with its Wedding Registry service for couples. Translation: You can now bolster your wedding wish list with flat-screen TVs and iPads, alongside your crockpots and china. Your groom will be so happy—which is exactly the point. Besides being able to offer modern gift options for your digitally inclined guests, Best Buy hopes it will encourage more dudes to get involved with the registry process. And that's a win-win for everyone.
In this early stage, couples can create and manage their registries (as well as sync with MyRegistry.com or TheKnot.com), check out the retailer's top picks, and prepare with a registry essentials checklist online or through the Best Buy app, but expect kiosks to start popping up in stores in April.
What do you think, brides? Would you and your spouse-to-be take your registry business to Best Buy?
