One of the best things about planning a wedding?
Registering for gifts!
Now, I do not mean that statement to come across as selfish and as if all I care about is gifts. I just want our wedding day to be full of love and fun with our family and friends…but, you have to admit, it’s fun to make a wish list and pick out anything you want for your house and your future!! Lee and I registered at Macy’s and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. My original plan was Macy’s and Target, but both of those stores are in the same towns…neither of which is close to us, so I changed to Bed, Bath, and Beyond so there was a local option for Lee’s family and our friends.
Here are some of my favorite items on our list:
KitchenAid Artisan Mixer in Pistachio
KitchenAid makes their mixers in the most amazing colors and it was so hard to decide which one to choose! I eventually went with Pistachio because of the retro feel. My style is not at all retro, but for the kitchen, I envision my grandmother using a mixer of that color back in the day…probably because she still has pots that are that color!!
Hotel Collection Bedding in the new Gates pattern
Our bedroom walls are a dark blue-green color and I wasn’t sure how this bedding would look next to them, but the more I studied it (Lee loved that I stood in front of the bedding just staring at it for more than a few minutes), I think it’s going to look great! I can’t wait to freshen up our bedroom!
Martha Stewart Cutlery
These knives are colored and are coded with little pictures on them so you know their purpose. How cute and fun is that!?
Cuisinart Pizzelle Press
My grandma has made pizzelles for as long as I can remember and they are always a family favorite during the holidays. I’m hoping someday to be like my grandma and make all of those delicious things that she forces on us! Getting this press is step 1!
Silpat Baking Mat
Apparently, I plan on spending a lot of time in my kitchen?
Rosette Shower Curtain
I think this shower curtain is so girly and pretty. It’s a little hard to see is this picture, but it actually reminds me of a wedding dress. There are raised rosette textures on the top and bottom. I just painted our bathroom a couple of months ago and I think it would be a great addition!
Mr. and Mrs. Leather Luggage Tags
These are just for fun!
Obviously, there is a lot more on our lists…but these are just a few of the things that I am obsessing over!
If you are married, where did you register for gifts? What was your favorite gift you received?
If you are not married, do you buy gifts from a couple’s registry when you go to weddings or do you do gift cards/cash? – I have done both…it depends on my relationship with the couple.
