Registering!

16 May

Let’s get real for a minute…Getting married is the celebration of finding that special person you want to spend the rest of your life with…Getting married is also the celebration of getting to REGISTER!!

It’s the one time in your life when you get to actual pick out exactly what you want!  The wedding registry concept started back in the early 20’s when a Chicago Department store wanted to provide engaged couples the opportunity to choose the china, silver & crystal they wished to receive.

The idea has obviously evolved 10x over, today you can not only register for china, but you can register for serving dishes, furniture, towels, bedding, you name it!  You can even register for your honeymoon or for donations to a charity you hold close to your heart.  Not to mention this can all be done in your pajamas since most registries are available online.

Friday night, Trevor & I spent the evening at Pottery Barn:)  We were updating our registry since we started it online, but I like to go to the store to actually see things in person.  Our big decision of the night was flatware and every day dishes.  We already picked out a set at Crate & Barrel, but we were having second thoughts.  In the end we decided on…

The Gabriella Dinnerware & Katherine Flatware sets from Pottery Barn!  These place settings really match our style so we thought they were a better fit.  A few other things I’m REALLY excited for…

Towels: Classic PB from Pottery Barn

Kitchen Gadgets: Cuisinart Griddler from Crate & Barrel

Fancy Trash Can: Simplehuman stainless steel can from Crate & Barrel

Of course  I’m excited for all the possible gifts Trevor and I will be so lucky to receive.  These are just a few that I’m crossing my fingers for.  Isn’t it funny how when you get older the things that you want are generally more the things you need🙂  Who get’s excited for a new trash can?!  This girl!
