Creating our wedding registry was both stressful and fun.
The stressful part…
-Picking out the crystal glasses/sterling serveware/etc. we will use throughout our entire marriage.
-Picking out master bedroom bedding when we A.) don’t have a master bedroom yet and B.) don’t have master bedroom furniture either. Same goes for guest room and all bathrooms! I need to know the space before I pick out the items that will fill it.
-Researching almost every item on the list was not fun. I’m so type-A in some aspects. I literally spent months researching the best starter cookware, crystal patterns, yada yada yada.
-And just in general… picking out what’s equivalent to the most gigantic Christmas list I will ever create. Sounds fun -and it was. But I had no idea how endless our options would be. Right then and there, we’re expected to pick out a ton of items that will fill our future home. I change my mind daily. I am terrible with decisions. Why is a round whisk better than a flat whisk? Why does the prettiest coffee maker have the worst reviews? Why, why, WHY?
The fun part…
…and basically, picking out what is equivalent to the most gigantic Christmas list we will ever create. Sure, it’s a lot of decisions, but we all know they are fun decisions.
Luckily, we already have our fine china set. Also, my grandmother had pulled out her sterling silver flatware to give me before she passed away. One of the last things she said to me was how excited she was to polish it all for me and Brandon. That’s so special.
After spending two hours in Target, an hour in Belk, three hours in Bed Bath & Beyond, and countless hours on the Pottery Barn website, we have our gift list (geeesh!). Kind of. Since then, I’ve deleted the Target and Belk lists because most all of those items were available at BB&B. The woman at BB&B still says that we don’t have enough gifts on our registry, but it’s a pretty awesome start. Seriously, I can’t think of anything else to put on there! Here are some of our favorite items on our list…
Hotel 600-Thread Count Sateen Duvet Cover and Shams from Pottery Barn (I only like white bedding!)
Silver-Plated Candlesticks from Pottery Barn
Monogrammed Bath Towels from Pottery Barn
Lenox Tin Can Alley Casual China (for everyday use)
Pearl Embroidered Duvet Set from Pottery Barn (for guest room)
Those are just a few of our favorites!
Married ladies: I’ve asked you before… but what is your favorite item that was on your wedding registry? I want to make sure I haven’t left anything important off the list!
