Planning a wedding can be stressful, making it hard to remember everything you need on your registry. Find out our top six registry essentials you may have forgotten or didn't know you needed on your wedding registry.
Flower crowns are all the rage in decorative headpieces, allowing a creative bride to imbue her wedding with a boho fairy vibe. These flower crowns have roots in mythology and art and can be traced back to ancient Greece, where people wore them to celebrate the gods. European women also wore flower crowns as they celebrated spring by dancing around a maypole on May Day. Of course, flower crowns made a major comeback during the '60s and '70s, when hippies ushered them in as a symbol of peace, love and closeness to nature.
Bridesmaids, flower girls and brides can all accessorize themselves with floral crowns for a romantic wedding filled with blooms. Any hairstyle will accommodate a flower crown, whether it's sitting atop cascading tresses, encircling a high, wavy ponytail or wrapped around an elegant bun. A bride might choose pale pastel flowers for a spring wedding, deeper tones for a winter wedding or white and cream for any time of year. Planning a Day of the Dead theme? Try a flower crown in a riot of colors. Regardless, most brides won't want to part with their flower crowns after the big day, and they don't have to: These crowns, available at favorite retailers including BHLDN, David's Bridal, Walmart, H&M and even Amazon, can do double duty as a festival accessory. Watch out, Coachella!
After the wedding itself, the second busiest aspect of planning is creating a wedding registry. It should be one of your fist tasks and you should make certain all of the essentials are included. A basic item all newlyweds should get is an amazing new sheet set — or two or three or four sets. You'll want to create a bedroom that's a cozy retreat for you and your new hubby, so use our handy list to start adding your bedding basics your wedding registry checklist.
We've done tons of research to find the best sheet sets for new brides, according to the best reviews on the internet. We also looked at thread count (we recommend no less than 200), materials, weave type, organic options, design, price, quality and more. Phew! There are a lot of sheets out there, and the materials run the gamut — organic cotton, long-staple cotton, chemical-free cotton, Egyptian cotton, microfiber, sateen, satin, flannel and more are among your choices. When you register, you peruse this list to decide what's most important to you for creating your new nest of newlywed coziness.
If you're serious about getting flawless skin for your wedding day (and who isn't?), the latest reports on vitamin C in skin care products will make you a true believer. This ingredient isn't just hype; dermatologists have written about it glowingly in medical literature and are stocking their shelves with vitamin C-infused products, too. So we studied the science and found the 15 best vitamin C serums and beauty products to benefit your face.
Dr. Ellen Marmur, a Manhattan dermatologist and founder of Marmur Metamorphosis Skincare, explains the properties that make vitamin C a windfall for skin. "Vitamin C is an essential component in the body's production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged and photodamaged skin," Marmur says. "Ascorbic acid is one of the many beneficial forms of vitamin C that helps to brighten and even out skin tone."
No pre-wedding brightening regimen will be complete without one or more of these superstar products, many of which contain the antioxidant ferulic acid and can be found at favorite retailers like Amazon, Sephora and Walmart.
Cyber Monday is a great day to stock up on discounted holiday gifts for family and friends, but it's also an opportunity to score stylish honeymoon necessities for yourself. And the online destination that should serve as your starting point to prep your for your first trip as newlyweds? Why Nordstrom, of course. The department store's sales are the stuff retail legends are made of, and the Cyber Monday sale is certainly no exception. Last year, Nordstrom offered online shoppers an additional 20% off select sale items — which means this time around you've got the potential to scoop up a whole bunch of essentials that make for a chic honeymoon (without having to overpack). From cozy plane-worthy pants to sunglasses you'll wear long after you return home, these are the deals we think are worth keeping an eye on (and adding to cart) this Cyber Monday.
