Publishing your registry

When you’re ready to publish your registry, click Share at the top of the Registry page.

Confirm your wedding date and share your and your partner's names. Your partner is not required to have an Etsy account. If he or she does have an account, we will not link to it from your registry.

Choose a delivery address for gifts. You can select from addresses you’ve used in the past or add a new address. During checkout, buyers will have the option of shipping to this address or to one of their own.

Mark your registry as “findable” for friends and family to be able to locate it in our registry search.

Once published, you can share it with others:

  • via direct link

  • Facebook

  • Twitter

  • embeddable HTML code

  • or printable cards

Other common questions

How do I delete my registry?

Find the Info box on the right side of the Registry page and click Edit. You can delete your registry using the link in the bottom right corner of the overlay that appears.

Please note that deleted registries cannot be restored.

What does it mean if items are “unavailable?”

If an item on your registry is unavailable, it has either sold out, expired, or otherwise been removed from the site.

Unavailable items are not visible on your public registry, but you can still see them on your individual Registry page.

Will sellers know that a purchase is from a registry?

Yes—items purchased from a registry are noted on both the buyer and seller receipt pages.
