As an unregistered Kohls.com customer, how do I create a Wedding Registry?
If you are completely new to our Website, or if you have shopped and/or purchased from our online store but never registered for a Kohls.com shopping account, then you can create your registry in just four easy steps. Click "continue" to begin. You will then be asked to enter:

  1. your contact information;
  2. your event information;
  3. create a password for your registry;
  4. and, you'll have the option to enter your parents' names.

It's that easy! And, next time you visit Kohls.com Gift Registry, your personal registry will be just a few clicks away!

Back to Top

As a registered Kohls.com customer, how do I search for my registry list?
By signing-in at Kohls.com, Kohl's Wedding Registry will be instantly available in "My Account." From My Account you can view, add or change items on your Gift List, as well as update your registry profile.

Or, if you choose, you can access Kohl's Wedding Registry through the top navigation bar and search for your registry by name or Registry Number.

Either way, all of your Gift Registry information is just a few clicks away!

Back to Top

As an unregistered Kohls.com customer, how do I search for my registry list?
Kohl's Wedding Registry offers you two easy ways to search! Find your registry by name or search by Registry Number for immediate results.

To find your registry by name, select your role (Bride or Groom) and enter at least the first letter of your First Name and the first three letters of your Last Name. Entering your Event Month, Event Year and Event Location is optional; however, the more information you enter, the better your search results will be.

(Helpful Hint: If there are more than 20 matches to your search, click "continue" to review these results or narrow your search by entering more information.)

To find your registry by number, just enter your Registry Number and the Password you provided when you created your registry. A partial Registry Number will not yield any results.

Back to Top

What do I need to know about the registry search results?
The results of your registry search are displayed with a maximum of 10 results per page. Click "next 10" to view the next page of results. If the registry you are looking for is not here, click on "please search again" or click on your Internet browser's "Back" button to return to the search page and try again. Once you choose your name from the results list, you will enter your Password to access your registry.

As a registered Kohls.com customer, can I change the E-mail Address in my Wedding Registry?
Yes. If you've shopped online at www.kohls.com and registered with us, then your E-mail Address is used as your Sign-in Name. So, if you change your E-mail Address in your Registry, remember that change when you're accessing your Kohls.com Account!

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!

Back to Top

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.

Back to Top

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:

  1. Select an existing address from your drop-down address book to use as your new Contact Address.
  2. 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.)
  3. 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.

What do I need to know about entering a Shipping Address?
We encourage you to enter a Shipping Address so your guests can ship gifts to you! You can simply select an address that you've already entered, or quickly create a new address. This way guests can have the option to ship gifts directly to you, without seeing your specific address. Plus, your guests won't even need to request a gift receipt because we will automatically include one!

Trust us, your guests will thank you!

Back to Top

How do I make my registry available to my guests online?
We strongly recommend you choose "Allow my guests to shop my gift list at Kohls.com" because that means all your guests will be able to purchase from your registry, whether they live next door or across the country. (Don't forget to add your Shipping Address.)

If you choose "Do not allow my guests to find and shop my gift list at Kohls.com," your guests will need to visit their nearest Kohl's Department Store to access and shop your registry. You will still be able to update your registry online, but we do not need your Shipping Address. Please choose "Do Not Ship" from the drop-down menu in the "Where to Ship Your Gifts" Section of this page.

Back to Top

How do I edit my Shipping Address?
There are three ways to change a Shipping Address:

  1. Select an existing address from your drop-down address book to use as your new Shipping Address.
  2. 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 Shipping Address for your Contact Address, the change will be made there as well.)
  3. Create a brand-new address.

If you choose to create a brand-new address, make sure the name in the Address Label field accurately represents the location, i.e., "ShippingAddress" or "Tom & Mary's House," and is within the 20-character limit.

Should you wish not to allow guests to ship gifts to you, select "Do Not Ship" from the drop-down menu.

Back to Top

How do I edit my Guest Access?
To change your guest access selection, choose the button next to your preferred option: "Allow" or "Do not allow" access.

We strongly recommend you choose "Allow my guests to shop my gift list at Kohls.com" because that means all your guests will be able to purchase from your registry, whether they live next door or across the country. (Don't forget to add your Shipping Address.)

If you choose "Do not allow my guests to find and shop my gift list at Kohls.com," you will still be able to update your registry online, but your guests will need to visit their nearest Kohl's Department Store to access and shop your registry.

How do I edit my Event Information?

What do I need to know about the Event Date and Event Location?
Event Date (month, date and year) and Event Location (2-letter state abbreviation) are important required fields because they can help your guests find your registry. They'll search by entering your name, and can narrow their search with your Event Month, Event Year and Event Location. This information will also help your guests choose the correct listing from the search results page.

If you are getting a head start on the registering process, and have not yet chosen an Event Date and/or Event Location, then enter an approximate Event Date and/or Event Location. If this information changes as you continue to plan for your big day, then just come back to Kohl's Wedding Registry and choose "Update a Registry." Once you sign-in, you can quickly and easily update your Event Date and/or Event Location, as well as any other information that may have changed.

Back to Top

What should I enter for "Name of Event?"
Your event name will be seen by your guests as a way to ship gifts to you (if you chose "Allow my guests to shop my gift list at Kohls.com" and you provide a Shipping Address).

We automatically provide the Name of Event for you. It consists of the combination of your last name + your co-registrant's last name + Wedding (SmithJonesWedding). However, there is a 20-character limit, so part of this combination could be cut off (PattersonHunterWeddi).

So, if your last names are long, you may want to edit your Event Name to show your first names instead of your last names (Lisa & John Wedding). And, remember, there is a 20 character limit!

Back to Top

How do I edit my Event Information?
Select the field you want to modify and enter the new information. Remember: Your guests will find your registry with this info. Your registry will be available for 13 months after your event.

If you have not yet chosen an Event Date and/or Event Location, then enter an approximate Event Date and/or Event Location. If this information changes as you continue to plan for your big day, then just come back to Your Profile and update this information again.

If you choose to edit your Event Name, you may want to show your first names (Lisa & John Wedding) instead of your last names. Remember, there is a 20 character limit!

What do I need to know about entering an E-mail Address?
When necessary, we make sure to keep bridal registrants informed about their registries through the mail. And, we'd love to communicate with you via e-mail, too! Make sure to enter your E-mail Address in the appropriate format, e.g., yourname@host.com.

And, if you give us your E-mail Address and check "Yes! I want to Sign-up for Sale Alerts," we'll periodically send e-mail messages about our biggest online sales to the address you provide. There's no obligation and no hassle. Every e-mail we send you will include an easy opt-out feature to remove your name from our e-mail list. You must be at least 18 years old to Sign-up for Sale Alerts.

And, if you are not a registered Kohls.com customer, you also have the option of checking "Yes! Save my information and create a Kohls.com shopping account for me!" Why is this a good idea? Well, it doesn't take any time and it makes creating future registries a snap!

And, because we consider you a valued customer, you have our commitment to respect your privacy. We do not share, sell or rent the information you provide us, including your E-mail Address, to third parties.

What happens if I forgot my Password?
Don't worry! We'll give you a temporary password. This will allow you to access your account, where you'll be able to change your password — without losing any of your personal information.

Registered Kohls.com customers: Click the Forget your Password? link on the Update Your Registry Selection Results page. Enter your E-Mail Address you provided when you created your Kohls.com shopping account. We'll send you a temporary password via e-mail almost immediately. (PLEASE NOTE: If your password does not arrive within 24 hours, please call Customer Service toll-free at 1-866-887-8884.)

Unregistered Kohls.com customers: Please call our Gift Registry Customer Service toll-free at (866) 887-8884. A Customer Service Representative will ask for certain information to verify your identity, including your Registry Number and your name. You will then receive a temporary Password for your registry account. (The next time you access your account, you can change the temporary Password to a new, permanent Password at any time.)

How do I edit my E-mail Address?

Why should I enter our Parents' Names?
Entering your Parents' Names gives your guests an extra way to search for your registry.

To make it easier on your guests, you may want to consider entering your parents' common names, rather than their formal names. For instance, if your father's formal name is "William," but he's known by family and friends as his common name, you might choose to enter "Bill" into the "First Name" field.
