My take on registry

Home & Registry, Wedding Style & Decor

With the amount of work in planning a wedding, registering for gifts may seem like yet another daunting task. It is important to keep in mind that the registry should reflect not only your taste and desires, but your lifestyle as well. To get started, discuss with your partner how you want to live. Will you be entertaining a lot? Do you plan on having holiday meals for the family at your home? Even if you haven't entertained much before you marry, marriage does change things. So consider this an opportunity to prepare for the future. And most of all... enjoy this part of your engagement together.

Nothing is more a cornerstone for your home than china, crystal and flatware. If they are beautifully designed and resonate with your lifestyle, they become something not only for special occasions but pieces you use everyday. And that is my ultimate goal! It's all about creative living. There is no wrong decision; it's about your own personal creativity. If you are true to yourself, registering for your new home and life together will be wonderful.
