When you think of a wedding registry, you probably think of department stores, home furnishing stores, and kitchen stores. You don’t exactly think about a pizza store, and yet, Domino’s is going where no pizza shop has ever gone – they’re offering wedding registries to their customers.
“Our registry aims to bring couples together over their shared love of pizza,” spokeswoman Jenny Fouracre said in a statement. “We hear often from customers that Domino’s was a part of their big day, from proposals to after-hours meals at their wedding. We wanted to make it easier for people to ask for and receive something that they’ll really use.”
Not to be offensive in any way, because I eat way more Domino’s than I care to admit, but who in their right mind is catering the biggest day of their life with Domino’s? Anyway…to go along with the fine china, toaster ovens, coffee pots, and other stuff that will stay in boxes for years that are usually bought off wedding registries, Domino’s has decided, for some reason, to create a wedding registry of their own.
They’re offering various denominations of e-gifts which includes “Bust Out the Fine China” and “The Wedding Night” in case more than one memorable night isn’t enough Domino’s for you and your special someone.
And the best part of this craziness: people have already signed up!
24 year old Laura Krahel and her fiance, 25 year old Curtis Crosier have signed up! Put them in those weird commercials already!
“I just thought it was really fun. We order pizza all the time and we make pizza at home. We have a regular registry and I know a lot of groomsmen who’d want to give Curtis this gift instead of maybe buying something for the kitchen,” said the advertising executive, who’s getting married in June.
And by that, she of course means his friends don’t want to actually put brainpower towards buying them a useful gift and instead will buy them fast-food pizza and cinnastix.
For this little nugget, I really hope you’re sitting down while you read it: Krahel plans for Domino’s to be mentioned in the invitations for her bridal shower!
“I posted it to Facebook yesterday and got 70 likes on it and I thought, ‘We might get a lot of pizza, but that might be awesome. We can share with all our guests or our bridal party or we could donate it.'”
At some point, there’s just too much Domino’s for one group of people to stomach at once.
Thankfully, more sane wedding planners are calling BS.
“I can’t really imagine my clients doing that. Maybe it’s a novelty for a year,” said Nicola Wilson of Milford, Michigan. “Maybe it’s the same as giving a gift certificate to nice restaurant, but it’s not the same…. Maybe it’s more for the budget market.”
“More for the budget market” is the understatement of the century, Ms. Wilson. So, if craving Domino’s is an itch you just can’t scratch enough, have some on your wedding day, your honeymoon, or even have your children take their first communion on Domino’s! The possibilities are endless!
