i thought i would share some of my favorite wedding registry items with you since i've been enjoying several of them this week!
we were so grateful to be able to switch out hand-me-downs and kitchenware from college for nice, new housewares. we chose a mix of practical and pretty pieces that would help us set up our adult, newlywed home.
honestly, i felt a bit guilty registering for home decor and non-essential items at first, but there are only so many spatulas a person needs! experts suggest you register for two-to-three times as many items as guests invited to the wedding and in our case, that allowed us to get creative and add the "pretty" pieces that would bring character and style to our space. it's key to have variety on your registry because you'll find that everyone has different price points to work with and not everyone enjoys purchasing the typical registry items for the bride and groom.
in fact, we found that some of our family and friends were really excited to give us home decor. my mother-in-law got us a seriously beautiful venetian mirror from wisteria (i would have included it, but it's no longer available - similar here) and was so happy to know that it is hanging in our bedroom and that we admire it daily.
so, tell me: if you're married, what are your favorite registry gifts? if you're looking forward to a wedding one day, what are you excited to register for?
