Fine China, 500-thread count sheets and KitchenAid Mixers are the traditional staple pieces of any wedding registry. However, being that gal pal who is always trying something new, we decided to look into alternative registry lists to give our scanners a break at Crate N' Barrel and spice up our taste. With our top five list consisting of honeymoon registries, charity registries and much more, there's sure to be a registry to spark your interest and fit you and your hubby's style just perfectly!

Zola. 

We love Zola because it boast experiences in addition to tangible gifts. As an all-inclusive gift registry, it offers a list of fun things to do in cities as well as fun gifts, like a monthly coffee subscription for endless gifting possibilities. With everything you love in one simple site, this is a must-go to if you are that adventurous couple looking to build experiences but also build your home.

Honeyfund

This honeymoon registry helps you discover the off-the-beaten-path destinations and lets you pick how guest give to that fund (fee-free gift cards, direct deposits or checks). It's perfect for any couple needing a little extra help to make their honeymoon as dreamy as their wedding. Not only that but we love how HoneyFund has a personalized app that allows you to track and record gifts and send personalized thank you notes. 

Heartful.ly

This registry offers a unique experience allowing couples to crowd fund for any cause they feel passionate about. Whether it's something close to home or financing a future cause, this registry allows you to spread the word online via social media pages. Perfect for couples looking to bring more of their personality into their wedding and tie in a charitable cause.

Blueprint

What better way to start designing your dream home than with a registry? Blueprint allows you to create a layout of your house - furnishings, decor, house ware needs - based off your personal style. The more the merrier as the site allows you to make sure everything fits and design it online. This is great for couples moving in to their first home or who needs a little more guidance and visual aid to see the final outcome.

The Lovely

This registry combines the in-store experience to an online extravaganza. Couples are able to create their own site (cover photo and all) and then share it with their guests. Each site is customized to the couple with gifts ranging from shower curtains to kitchen aids to clothes and accessories. The site will link you to the desired gift site and allow you to make purchases straight from home. Perfect for the couple who would rather spend a day together on the couch picking out wedding gifts!
