Imagine a romantic, candlelit evening. A beautiful dinner is on the table, the wine is breathing and you and your love are sharing an intimate conversation. In Crate & Barrel’s January catalog, this idea becomes a beautiful reality; two (gorgeous) men sit in a chic, Manhattan apartment-esque apartment, radiating love. Showing LGBT love, Crate & Barrel, along with a few other retail and department stores, are perfect for your wedding registry. Check out our five favorites:

CRATE & BARREL

Crate and Barrel’s unique dinnerware sets, wine glasses and furniture will be sure to create a registry for a perfect, stylish home. Between the new merchandise in stock (like their Bed and Bath items) and with 10 percent off all purchases during the six months after the wedding, how can we say no?

TARGET

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.

MACY'S

The magic of Macy’s extends beyond its tagline. In the Human Rights Campaign’s 2013 Corporate Equality Index, Macy’s scored a 90/100, right behind Levi Strauss & Co. and Nike Inc. When you register at Macy’s and live in big metropolitan cities like New York City and Los Angeles, you can book an in-store appointment with a wedding registry consultant online, creating less hassle. Macy’s wedding registry also offers discounts and savings, as well as fun events like Sip & Scan to make the registration process an enjoyable event.

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.

J.C. PENNEY

Rounding out our top five list is J.C. Penny. Not only is their registry easy, simple and LGBT-friendly, J.C. Penny will show their appreciation with a free one-year subscription to Brides magazine (hello, value!). JCP is also offering great deals on wedding portraits when you register, including free sitting fees and a free 8x10 image. With their affordable pricing, for both you and the guests, you’ll be sure to keep on budget.

If a registry isn’t quite you and your fiancé/e’s thing, but you still need a few items for your home, shop at these stores that had perfect scores in the Human Right’s Campaign’s 2013 Corporate Equality Index: Best Buy, Abercrombie and Fitch, Barnes and Noble, Gamestop and Nordstrom.
