Planning your perfect registry can be a tall task, especially when your modern taste doesn't quite meld with classic china and cookware. Luckily, couples have more freedom to select pieces that feel inspired and original, so you can supplement your basic registry necessities with cool, contemporary choices. Case in point: yellow gold registry picks.
It's no secret that yellow gold is everywhere these days. From engagement rings and wedding bands to chic gowns and bold accessories, the metallic shade is the top pick in the bridal world and beyond. And now you can even stock your new home with of-the-moment sleek and sculptural gold pieces. With clean shapes, organic textures, and warm hues, these pieces are not only beautiful, but tough.
Even though gold is luxurious, that doesn't mean it has to be over-the-top. The key is to find glided items that are understated and not fussy. Matte finishes feel fresh, not excessive. Need proof? Check out the entertaining essentials above. And pieces with gold accents, like the serving tray we found, are unexpected and elegant.
If you're afraid gold registry picks may be price prohibitive, go for faux-gold alternatives that won't break the bank. Polished brass is gold's most common imitator, especially in larger hollow pieces like a milk jug or centerpiece. Gold finish over stainless steel is another affordable choice, which is used in flatware and solid items. So whatever your budget and style, there's something gorgeous and gold in your future.
