What do I need to know about Registrant and Co-Registrant Names?
Your names are the primary way that guests will search for your registry. Make sure to enter your First and Last Names completely. Middle initial is optional.
If your formal and common names are different, you'll need to decide which one to enter. For example, if your common name is "Ginny," but your formal first name will appear on your wedding invitations, you may want to enter "Virginia" as your first name. On the other hand, if your formal name is "Virginia," but everyone knows you as your middle name, you may want to enter "Sue" as your first name.
What do I need to know about entering Address information?
Whether you are entering a new address or updating an existing address, it is important that you enter information accurately and completely. A Contact Phone number is important so that we can get in touch with you with information that is specific to your registry.
When you have entered your Contact Address, we will create a handy Address Book for you to use whenever we ask for other types of addresses. (If you are a registered Kohls.com customer, your My Account Address Book will appear.) That means that any other time we request an address, you can simply select an address that you've already entered. What could be easier? Of course, we always allow you to create a new address, too.
And, if you haven't already, we'd like to encourage you to enter a Shipping Address. This way guests can have the option to ship gifts (and gift receipts) directly to you, without seeing your specific address. Trust us, your guests will thank you!
What should I enter for "Name this Address?"
On your behalf, we provide a unique, descriptive name for each new address you create. For example, we'll provide the name "ContactAddress" for the address you enter on the Contact Information page. Basically, this is an Address Label field, or simply a way to assign a "short name" to an address.
Please note: This Contact Address "short name" is for your use only. It will not be visible to your guests.
When we provide the unique, descriptive name for new addresses, we suggest you stick with them. However, if you do choose to rename this address, make sure that it accurately represents the location, i.e., "Mary's Apartment" or "Tom & Mary's House," and is within the 20-character limit.
How do I edit my Contact Information?
Through Your Profile, you can easily edit your Contact Information any time and as many times as you need.
In fact, there are three ways to change your Contact Address:
- Select an existing address from your drop-down address book to use as your new Contact Address.
- Select an existing address, but change the info we have on file for that address.
(Note: This will change the address everywhere you use it. For example, if you use this Contact Address for your Shipping Address, the change will be made there as well.)
- Create a brand-new address.
If you choose to create a brand-new address, make sure to provide a unique, descriptive name in the Address Label field as a way to name that address. Make sure that it accurately represents the location, i.e., "Mary's Apartment" or "Tom & Mary's House," and is within the 20-character limit.
