A few times each year, Crate and Barrel chooses select stores across the country to host “Plus” versions of their Private Registry Events, where couples are welcomed in before store hours to browse the latest products, enjoy one-on-one assistance from store associates, and build their wedding gift registries. As the National Strategic Planner for these events, we oversee the coordination of each market across the United States to ensure cohesion and overall adherence to the Crate and Barrel brand. We hand-select a local planner in each host market and work alongside them to put together a team of the city’s top wedding professionals to interact and inspire couples while showcasing Crate’s top registry products.
