Dip-dying, the more stylish cousin of tie-dye, is a fun way to personalize your wedding registry. It's perfect for the trendy or boho bride who's searching for a twist on the basics, as well as the traditional girl searching for a few unexpected additions. To help inspire your own wedding registry picks, we rounded up a few of our favorite dip-dyed finds.
First, accent a white couch with these green pillows to add a pop of color to your living room. Also we found pretty rose-dipped napkins — essentials for your first summer cocktail party as newlyweds.
And contrary to popular belief, dip-dying isn't reserved for bold, vibrant colors. The look can also add modernity to an otherwise basic registry item by using a neutral or metallic color. Case in point: Serena and Lily's storage baskets (a great place to stash gloves and other winter accessories in the winter) and gold-dipped serving trays. The dark charcoal of the foot stool courtesy of Etsy and the hint of navy blue in the West Elm rug are also good alternatives if you're not keen on brighter colors, but still want to try the playful trend.
Overall, remember to have fun with your registry! It's always smart to stick with the must-haves (i.e. good sheets, pots and pans, etc), but it's totally okay to mix in some fun items that reflect your style.
