One of the most fun parts of being engaged is the REGISTRY. It's kind of like free shopping! I'm a year and a half into my marriage now and there are so many things we received from our registry that we use every single day. We registered at Target for everything - kitchen supplies, bathroom decorations, even board games!
But first things first - creating a registry can take all day, so I put together a quick style board for the perfect registry day outfit (all from Target, of course!). Flat shoes for comfort, striped scarf for style, and a cross-body bag to keep your hands free for lists and scanning.
As for the registry, I have a few ideas for that as well! The list they give you is a great start - but make sure you're picking up things you'll actually use. Here are some of our favorite things we got from Target for our wedding.
Instagram worthy plates ($60 for 4 settings) :: These are ours! They're extra big, and a little unique. And PS...white plates look better under food for those of you who like snapping shots of what you eat. I recommend at least two boxes.
Party-worthy glasses ($40 for 4) :: Add some things to your registry you might not splurge on yourself. We registered for Riedel wine glasses, which really bring a special touch to our wine and cheese parties.
Soft-as-butter sheets (price varies based on size) :: Trust me. You'll be glad you registered for a few extra threads in your count.
Add some style to your bathroom ($20) :: Now is a great time to think about what styles you'd like to see in your home. Try and register for things that match so you can put together an entire room - we picked this shower curtain first, then built the rest of the bathroom around it including towels, soap dispensers, trays and containers, even wall decor!
And, something fun. ($40) :: I grew up with family game nights, and I love them - we received several fun board games to start a collection of our own. Plus, they're perfect for entertaining friends after the wedding.
So whether you're a newly engaged couple or shopping for an upcoming wedding, I have a nice surprise for you! I'm giving away a $25 gift card to Target in today's post. Just leave me a comment below with your favorite registry item - whether it's what you want, what you got, or your favorite gift you've given - and I'll pick a winner Friday!
UPDATE :: Thanks for all of your entries! I loved reading your responses. Shana won the giftcard!
