Ampersand Shops provides a beautiful assortment of premier tabletop, home decor + accessories perfect for any home. See what the experts had to say when creating the perfect registry + find out how to win a $1000 gift card with Ampersand Shops!
When does a couple need to begin the process for their gift registry?
We recommend 6 months before their wedding date. This will give the couples' guests plenty of time to pick out something special, plus their guests can see what the couple finds inspirational for their future together!
What is the process for beginning your gift registry with Ampersand Shops?
The couple can either make an appointment with our associates and we will help them with every step, or if you are out of town we offer a full-featured, easy-to-use wedding registry online.
What are the benefits of registering with Ampersands vs. Target or Macy’s?
We offer a collection of branded shops, giving our couples a convenient way to shop the widest selection of premiere designers in the tabletop market. We also offer one-on-one relationships with our clients, giving full attention and expertise to help make their homes as beautiful as their wedding day.
What is the biggest mistake couples make when creating their registry?
A common mistake is not registering for enough place-settings. Four or six dinner plates might suffice for a year or two…but when you would like to entertain or one breaks, an extra few plates will come to the rescue! We usually recommend that each couple should register for 10-12 place-settings.
What is the best advice you can offer to a couple looking to begin their registry?
Establish a combined aesthetic that both individuals love and find special. Don’t be afraid of taking risks, it’s okay to mix and match!
