When Stephanie Pirishis was getting married, she had difficulty finding a practical solution to register at her favorite local shops. She and her fiancé desired gifts that would reflect who they were as a couple from their favorite Chicago stores. “This is where Poladora comes in,” Pirishis says. “It’s about connecting you to all the cool and fun Chicago stores, you can register for the items you really want and make it easier for local stores to participate in the registry market.”

The word poladora means “many gifts” in Greek. Could the name for a gift registry get any better? The name is a true indicator of all they stand for with many gift options to suit all tastes and budgets. As a consolidated registry, Poladora allows the couple to be in full control of the gifts they receive, as well as when they are shipped. When a guest purchases a gift, the money is held as a credit. The bride and groom can then choose to use the credit at any time, on any item with a participating retailer. This will help the couple avoid incomplete sets of their dinnerware and eliminate the hassle of exchanging gifts. Also! the credit is valid at any retailer in the Poladora network for the next five years. Poladora will send you a helpful reminder quarterly about your remaining credit.

So what kind of items can you purchase with your credit? Working with more than 15 local Chicago retailers, Poladora has developed a wide range of gift options. You can register for traditional shower items like pots and pans or non traditional items like cooking or yoga classes. Your guests can contribute to pre-wedding necessities such as dance lessons at Chicago Dance or your bridal shower package. They can encourage your love of gourmet food and wine or purchase large ticket items like furniture and art. You can even register for “Day of” items like your wedding cake from Sarah’s Candies and Pastries or your bridal or bridesmaids accessories from The Left Bank.
