How The Slowdance Registry Works

A Hold Registry means that we hold the funds from all guest purchases in the form of credit to our store. When you are ready, log into your registry account, add the items that you want to purchase to your cart, and checkout using your unique gift card credit.

Will I know about a gift purchase?

We will notify you immediately via email when a guest purchases off your registry.

What are the benefits of the Slowdance Registry?

Simplicity and flexibility. You are in control of what gifts you receive and when you receive them. Click here for more benefits.

What if my guests would like the gift to be shipped to their address?

Guests are notified at the time of purchase that we aggregate registry gift shipments for a future delivery according to your preferences. Therefore, guests do not have the option to designate a shipping address.

Are guests alerted when items are shipped?

At checkout, guests will be notified that you have chosen to hold your items until a later date and that they will not receive shipment or tracking information. They will receive a confirmation email of their purchase.

Will my guests be charged shipping and handling fees?

Any gift purchased under $125 will incur a flat fee. Gift orders over $125 include complimentary shipping. Couples and guests should note, however, that some items (i.e. made-to-order gifts, specialty pieces, furniture, etc.) may require additional fees.

Will my items go out of stock?

In such cases, we place a backorder. If, however, the item has been discontinued and is no longer available, we will promptly notify you.

Will I get my items on time?

Lead times for delivery vary by item and brand and can be up to 6-12 months – especially for premium or special order items.

How do I use my credits?

Do my credits expire?

Credits do not expire, but we recommend you exercise them within one year after your wedding date. Price increases from the manufacturers are common. As a result, we will honor the price at the point of guest purchase for up to one year after your wedding date. After which, you will be responsible for the price of the item at the time you place your close-out order. 

*We encourage you to place a close-out order as soon as possible after your wedding. We offer a 20% completion discount up to 6 months after your wedding date. What this means is, that once you have used all of your registry credit, we offer you a one-time discount on any additional items that you would like to purchase for any items you may have wanted but did not receive as a gift.
