A Tailored Guide to Your Bridal Registry

Ascutney Double Old-Fashioned Set by Simon Pearce ($130)

Congratulations! You’ve just gotten engaged. You are about to embark on one of life’s most exciting journeys. There is so much to do – venues to book, caterers to sample, and of course, a wedding registry to start. The Bridal Registry as we know it dates back to the 1920s, when Macy’s department store came up with a clever way for wedding guests to discretely shop for couples without having to ask what they wanted.

Your friends and family will want to shower you with gifts. They’re excited to be a part of your happiness, so in order to help them (and yourself) out, it’s time to make a bridal registry. Make sure the gifts you receive (because trust me, whether you choose to register or not, those gifts are coming!) are things you want, things that enhance your new life as a married couple, are things maybe you couldn’t afford on your own, or they might just even be things you didn’t know you needed.

The Granduca Collection by Richard Ginori ($65 – $485)

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as having too many choices. Faced with a display of dozens of china in a dizzying array of patterns can cause a system overload. It doesn’t matter how much prep you did beforehand, or how many clippings you’ve collected into your scrapbook, suddenly your mind goes blank and you’re not even sure if you like the color blue or not. It’s called the paradox of choice (from the book The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less, by Barry Schwartz about living in a culture of  too many options), and the best way to conquer it is with help. Finding the right guide to help you along a potentially overwhelming path filled with multiple options is the one thing you probably didn’t know you needed when you were making your list of wedding to-dos. When your eyes start swimming with visions of serving bowls, steak knives, duvet covers, pasta bowls and more (and more, and more, and more!) you’ll see why.
