Zankyou is Europe's #1 wedding website and the must go to site for all things wedding. Through the Zankyou Wedding Magazine, we aim to inspire and help our couples to plan the wedding of their dreams. Another great feature to our site is our Online Cash Wedding Registry which allows couples to register for their honeymoon, experiences such as dining, balloon rides and even wine tasting lessons. Other options include a couples dream project or their favorite charities, as well as traditional household goods. The best part? couples receive the cash equivalent of all the gifts listed on their registry. With a 2.85% handling fee for every gift that can either be paid for by the couple or their guests, it is one of the lowest rates in the market. If the couples guests pay for the handling fee, the site is absolutely free and they get 100% of all gifts made to their registry!
