The Overwhelming Wedding Bridal Registry
I experienced serious bridal registry anxiety…Why? Because, I was moving into a new home with my husband and I had no idea what we actually needed, I was concerned about the guests and what stores would be readily accessible to them (considering that a good portion of our guests were traveling from out of state) and I didn’t know of a good store that offered great customer service to their brides and grooms (they typically just hand you a scanning gun and send you on your way!).
Bridal Consultants to the Rescue!
Well, my fears vanished when I walked into Macy’s – Bellevue Square!!! The Bridal Consultant (yes, they have dedicated bridal consultants for their bridal registry) greeted me immediately upon entering the department and offered me a seat and an espresso…I was sold! She helped me plan out our registry, research comparable items, and locate items in the store. I could not have asked for a better experience.
Not only was the initial experience a pleasure, but the return/exchange process was even better! We had a number of gifts that, unfortunately, were duplicated and I had to return them to Macy’s. I had a trunk full and I dreaded bringing all those gifts back! I politely asked a sales associate how I could return a lot of gifts and they instructed me to pull around to will call and they would take care of everything…that statement could not have been more true! A gentleman met me at my car, piled all the gifts in a cart and escorted me and the gifts directly to the bridal registry department. The Bridal Consultant took care of everything! She offered me a water and a seat in a small, but nice back office while she made all the returns…no standing in line with angry customers breathing down your back! It was wonderful!!!
So, if you are experiencing Bridal Registry Anxiety, please consider registering at Macy’s or a similar store with dedicated consultants! The entire experience is at the top of my “Best”.
