About us

We created Zankyou after having seen through our own experiences that there was no wedding registry and wedding website service designed for today's couple. Couples are increasingly global and living together already so they don't need a house full of stuff. Furthermore, their wedding guests come from around the world with lifestyles that are increasingly driven by online options.

Today, Zankyou offers services in the US, Mexico and several other countries in Latin America and Europe in eight different languages (English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Polish and Dutch) and multiple currencies.

To date, more than 100,000 couples have created their wedding website through Zankyou, more than 500,000 gifts have been given via Zankyou wedding registries and every month more than 3 M users use the website, with an average of 14 million page visits per month. Our robust registry service is supported by recognized global organizations such as Citibank and gift payments are secured with Thawte® (Verisign).

Zankou prides itself on being a leader of innovative technology for weddings and changing the status quo for engaged couples around the world. We love your wedding!
