Hope this guide gives you some fun ideas for planning your own wedding registry!
You’ll undoubtedly have a few wedding photos you’ll want to have framed so why not think ahead and include a few luxe frame choices on your registry? I’m a big fan of the gorgeous quality offered by Graphic Image. The leather is soft and feels rich to the touch and it’s so nice to add a few initials (you can choose from 1-3) to your frames. Whether they’re framing moments from your big day or a baby down the way, they’re sure to be a standout piece in your home. (Image in featured frame is by Brea McDonald Photography)
I love being able to fill our home with unique art and locally handcrafted goods that speak to my soul and I find it a win-win when the art also serves a useful purpose. And that’s just what you have with these charming hand forged wall hooks. I’m so glad I came across Nick’s shop on Etsy where he showcases several products he forges by hand in Maine. I’m currently using these wall hooks for our hat collection but they’d also be great for keys or towels. A beautifully utilitarian gift for a couple’s first home!
Lawn equipment may not be something that immediately comes to mind when one thinks of a wedding registry but many newly married couples will be moving into a home with a yard for the first time and those lawn care staples will make that transition so much easier. I think a lawn mower like this one from BLACK + DECKER is a wonderfully practical thing to include on your registry.
Doormat with Border (c/o) from uncommon doormats
I’m always on the lookout for a good classic doormat and am partial to the look of natural coir and this mat from uncommon doormats does just the trick. It’s eco-friendly, weather-resistant and constructed with a solid vinyl base making it ready to brave the elements of every season. You can choose to personalize the mat with your last name or initials, as well.
Electric String Trimmer/Edger (c/o) from BLACK + DECKER
As I mentioned earlier, lawn equipment may be a category that often gets looked over with wedding registries but these items can definitely come in handy and make the perfect gifts for a new couple moving into a new home.
Personalized Leather Dopp Kit (c/o) from Felix Street Studio
While dopp kits typically make great groomsmens’ gifts, they’re also a lovely gift for a groom! Perfect for a honeymoon and the many vacations to follow, this personalized leather toiletry bag is just right for toting those travel essentials. The full grain aniline dyed leather is ruggedly distressed making it a beautiful option for a registry gift. I love that you can opt to have it monogrammed, as well!
I wish I had discovered GelPro mats years ago! I currently have this pretty mat in front of our kitchen sink and both my husband and I are so appreciative of the comfort it provides for our feet while washing dishes. The mat offers great support, features a slip-resistant bottom and a stain-resistant top surface (constructed with non-toxic polyurethane). As soon as I unpacked the mat, I was impressed with the top-notch quality – it has the perfect thickness and cushion and the design aesthetic is beautiful. I typically have a hard time finding mats that match our classic home design but this one blends in seamlessly. In fact, I’d love to get another for our laundry room! A wonderful comfort gift to include on your wedding registry.
Shark® IONFlex™ 2X DuoClean® Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum (c/o) by Shark
I think registering for a vacuum is an incredibly great idea as every home needs a good vacuum! This cordless vacuum is a nice choice as it offers two ION power pack batteries and a double charging dock meaning you’ll never be tethered to a wall and you can vacuum while another battery is charging. It also features MultiFLEX™ reach mode which allows you to reach under furniture and crevices with ease. And my favorite part? It easily transforms into a handheld vacuum (which I love to use to clean out our cars). Transitioning to a cordless vacuum for me, personally, has been a wonderful experience and I highly recommend this choice.
eko® lite yoga mat 4mm – carval (c/o) from manduka
A yoga mat may seem a little outside the box for a wedding registry but I think investing in a top quality yoga mat that helps to achieve clarity for both your mind and spirit is a wise investment for a healthy and strong marriage! I love that manduka offers eco-friendly and biodegradable mats made from non-Amazon harvested tree rubber – supporting your dedication to the practice and the planet. Win win!
Easy Steam Compact Iron (c/o) by BLACK + DECKER
I’ll end this guide with a classic: a compact steam iron. You can’t go wrong with adding something like this to your registry as it’s a home essential. Even if you don’t do much ironing (I certainly don’t!), there’s always that last-minute dress shirt or skirt that needs a quick steam and it’s nice to have a reliable iron on hand.
