When it comes to building your wedding registry, adding timeless dinnerware and glassware is a no-brainer: you want your gifts to last through years of wear, tear, and style evolution (shout out to those mauve Tupperware cups in your mom’s cabinet). But, I'm also a firm believer in registering for the now, including a few trendier picks that 1) make you really happy, and 2) are gorgeous enough to stay in style. Serve up newlywed dinners and drinks in these hot materials and prints, and never look back:
We’re seeing a huge surge in all things jade green. And it makes total sense to scatter jade hues liberally around any newlywed home: the mineral is thought to reveal inner truths and bring about reflective wisdom. These are great picks for the self-aware couple.
