Seven things you’re going to wish you put on your wedding registry. We know you’re busy with the thrill of wedding planning details, but don’t leave your registry in the dust! The Wedding Guys have you covered with our seven picks that will have you wondering, “Why didn’t I register for that!”
Many couples opt for the classic white dish sets or maybe an elegant set of formal china but consider treating yourself to a more eye catching dinnerware option, choose something artsy and fun! We love the statement this stylish marble pattern gives while still staying classy and chic. Find this 4 piece porcelain dinner plate at Herberger’s for $120
Especially for those couples moving into your first home together after the nuptials, you’ll be surprised how long it takes to fill up the bare white walls and shelves, and let’s be honest, your hubby’s bachelor pad style should be left in the past! Speed up the decorating process in a meaningful way by registering for artwork. Mirrors are always a great way to fill up wall space, and they are especially helpful when dealing with a small space. This fun overlapping mirror piece from West Elm is the perfect way to fill up some bare wall space! Price: $399
Alright, lets be real here, the last thing you want to do after slaving away on a home-cooked meal is to dig through your cupboards to find something visually appealing to serve your cuisine in. Impress your dinner guest and save some time and hassle by registering for a few oven-to-table bakeware pieces. These Le Creuset Cast-Iron pieces available at Williams-Sonoma are perfect for any occasion, and our favorite part is that they come in tons of fun colors, choose one or mix and match a few and your on your way to a meal that not only tastes good but looks good too!
Decorative Pillows are another fun and simple way to jazz up your new place together! Most people overlook the little things when decorating a room like decorative pillows, but they can be a fun way to add a pop of color or decorate for the season. How fun is this personalized burlap decorative pillow from the Etsy shop, WillowCreekCompany for $38
Who wants to spend hundreds on a nice set of suitcases for themselves? If you’re still using the modge podge of your parents hand-me-downs consider traveling in style for your honeymoon with a brand new luggage set for the occasion, what a great excuse to ask for a nice set, plus we think you deserve it! We recommend the Travel Quarter Solid 3-pc. Hardside Spinner Luggage Set, that come in his and her color schemes! They are $180 each, so they wont break your guest’s budget either. Available at Herberger’s.
Speaking of traveling…why not register for your honeymoon! Say What!? Yes, you read that right, check out ZOLA Honeymoon registry. Your guests can buy portions of your honeymoon as wedding gifts, such as gift cards for AirBnB, Hotels.com, Delta, Southwest, Royal Caribbean, and more! Guests can even give you a cash gift allocated towards something fun to do on your honeymoon like Breakfast in bed, a couples massage or drinks with a view!
We recently read a statement from a wedding gift list advisor that stuck with us, “The wine glasses are bound to break- the memories should last far longer.” Remember, don’t get caught up in the sip and scan madness, (although we do think that’s fun!) but remember that experiences last a lifetime. Consider asking friends and family for gift cards to their favorite date night dining spots, theatres or weekend get-aways! It’s a meaningful and fun way to try new places and celebrate your new married life!
