A benevolent wedding registry

Favors & Gifts, Home & Registry

In theory, a wedding registry sounds like great fun; after all, it's the ultimate wish list! But there are so many questions to address: When do you register? How do you determine an appropriate price range? What's the polite way to inform your guests about your registry? And then, of course, a registry can also make some couples feel uncomfortable. Asking for gifts can feel greedy and even rude, especially in such difficult economic times.

Enter Goodshop.com, a new online shopping mall that donates up to 30% of every purchase to one of 79,000 nonprofit organizations. Participating stores include Bloomingdale's, Williams-Sonoma, Macy's, Target and over 1,000 other stores you'll likely want on your registry. All you have to do is select a charity and ask your guests to purchase your wedding gift through Goodshop. The only thing better than getting a pair of beautiful candlesticks, is knowing that their purchase helped support your favorite charity! —Victoria Loustalot
