Merci Registry

A new online registry that's as easily customizable as it is good-looking

by Ami Kealoha in Tech on 12 July 2010


The joint project of real-life couple David Rager and Cheri Messerli, Merci Registry combines the cottage industry appeal of Etsy with the elegant interface of Tumblr.


As a result, the wedding wish list not only looks better than the generic design offered by similar services, but also makes it way easier to add gifts from nearly any online store or a made-up gift—like honeymoon drinks at a special bar.


Thanks to the duo's combined design chops (for proof check out their charming former apartment on the Selby), you can choose from five pre-made themes ranging from a playfully-smudged pastel background to a crisply minimal layout. Prices (which include hosting) start at $65 for six months, but for $175 you get one designed to your liking for 12 months.
