You may know Macy’s mostly for its great wedding registry, but you may not be as familiar with the Wedding Shop on Macys.com! It’s your one-stop shop for outfitting your entire wedding party, from jewelry to shoes to bridesmaids dresses, tuxedos and even gifts! All in a range of colors & price points, you’ll be buying off the rack vs having to order directly through a designer, so it’s super easy and will save you lots of time.
There is also a fun tool called “My Bridal Party” which allows you to pull together head-to-toe looks that you can share with your bridal party, who can then comment on & rate their favorite look. It makes it the best way to communicate your vision with your family and friends, and makes it incredibly easy to buy the entire look in one shot.
What’s better is that when you sign up for Macy’s Registry Star Rewards Program, you can earn Rewards when you shop from most areas of the Wedding Shop, AND when you receive gifts from your registry! (not valid on Beauty or Fragrances)

When Chad and I got engaged, we ended up having a pretty lengthy engagement…2 1/2 years! It wasn’t because we couldn’t get our stuff together, we essentially had our wedding planned within 6 months….it was because I didn’t want to get married in an odd-year. You see, we got engaged towards the end of 2006, and could have gotten married in 2007 if we wanted to, but I have this thing with odd numbers, so we held off til Spring of 2008! Maybe its a silly reason, but hey, we ended up having ALL even numbers for our anniversary date…04/26/08, so I’m pretty happy about that!
That leads me to the premise of a film coming out on April 27 called The 5-Year Engagement starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segel….if you haven’t seen the previews yet, you absolutely must! The characters, Tom & Violet, get engaged a year after meeting, and through a series of crazy events, their wedding gets postponed multiple times over 5 years…its from the producers of Bridesmaids, so its pretty much guaranteed to be hilarious.
A bunch of blogs today are getting in on the fun…each participating blog below is featuring a different save the date that Tom & Violet sent out over their 5 year engagement….simply collect 4 of the dates (seen on the STD card) and enter them at the sweepstakes page for a chance to win $1000 Amazon giftcard!
