If it wasn’t clear before, Target made their message clear in July of 2012 that LGBT couples are more than welcome at their wedding registry. The mega retailer has released two registry ads, one of two brides and one with two grooms, that read, “Be yourself, together.” Besides Target having pretty much anything a newlywed couple could need or want, they also guarantee a 10 percent discount on items you didn’t receive but still want to purchase. Target also has a mobile registry app for easy access anywhere and a digital wedding catalog for registry ease at home.

SEARS

Do you want to new tools, a washing machine or sporting accessories? Look no farther than Sears’ wedding registry. They even provide a starter registry as an inspiration list of items you may forget to consider on the first go-round. Plus, Sears Holding Company, the corporation created when Sears and Kmart merged in 2005, scored a 100/100 in the Human Right’s Campaign’s 2013 Corporate Equality Index, so showing our mutual love is a good idea.
