Zola vs. The Knot for a Wedding Registry

Zola vs. The Knot for a Wedding Registry

Congratulations! You are engaged and planning your dream wedding, and it can be overwhelming. Before long people will be asking where you are registered. The two main wedding registry websites are Zola and The Knot. Our goal is to break down each one for you to help you choose the best registry option for you! So which is better for you, Zola or The Knot? Let’s take a look….

Zola vs. The Knot

The Knot


  • Free Wedding Website
  • Wedding Registry Gifts – Grab gifts from any online store and easily include them on your registry
  • Features Brands such as Bed Bath and Beyond, Williams Sonoma, Wayfair, Amazon, etc
  • Cash Registry

The Knot is the original and well-known powerhouse when it comes to a one-stop shop for wedding planning. We like to describe it as the place to plan a wedding, find vendors, build a registry, and wedding website. They also have an extensive blog and planning tools to make the process easier. If you are looking for a one-stop solution to your wedding, then the knot maybe best for you.



  • Free Wedding Website
  • Wedding Registry Gifts and Gift Cards (Free shipping and returns) from their select stores
  • Features brands such as Crate and Barrel, Backcountry, and more
  • Honeymoon Funds with a 2.5% fee.
  • Save the Date and Invitation Ordering
  • 20% Post Wedding Discount

Zola is the “new kid on the block” when it comes to wedding registries and has a lot going for it. They advertise as being a more personal source for wedding registries. By offering invitations and save the dates as well as 20% post-wedding discounts on all your items, it can be very appealing. Some of the companies on The Knot, like Bed Bath and Beyond, offer 20% off post-wedding purchases, but it is not website wide on all items like Zola offers. Zola partners more with individual brands versus the big box stores, so you have access to thousands of brands and items that you can purchase at a discount if they are not gifted to you.


So Zola vs. the Knot, they both have their perks. Ultimately, it is up to you and your fiancé(e) to determine which one is best for you. If you are looking for a personal and unique option, then Zola may be best for you, but if you want a one-stop wedding planning solution, then I would consider The Knot.
