It's time for the bridal shower, that celebratory event during which ladies "ooh" and "ahh" over the dessert bar, the fabulous décor and, most of all, the gifts. There's such fun to be had in watching a much-loved bride and her best gals bestow new goodies to help feather her nest. If you want to bypass the wedding registry, do so with an amazing gift that will leave her in awe. Plus, sometimes the bride leaves something necessary (think: a new tea kettle!) off her registry simply because she doesn't know she needs it. Trust us: She needs one of these chic items. So stop stressing about finding the perfect wedding gift because we found them for you at West Elm, Crate & Barrel, Anthropologie and more.
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.
The white ball gown remains the iconic wedding dress for a princess bride. Think: Cinderella, Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy. Such wedding gown imagery is bound tightly within our collective memories, yet modernity has brought many a twist to the time-honored silhouette. One is the wedding jumpsuit. Another recently popularized style is the two-piece wedding ensemble, a new choice for the iconoclasts among us. The two-piece bridal outfit allows a bride various options. With a crop top and skirt combo, fit brides can subtly (or not so subtly...) flaunt their washboard abs. A voluminous skirt paired with a simple, structured top creates a stunning display. A slinky skirt and form-fitting top can allow for movement within structure. Here, we've made it a cinch to find your two-piece wedding gown by listing amazing options from Nordstrom, Etsy, David's Bridal and more.
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.
Every love story is unique: For the bride, an alternative engagement ring becomes her outward symbol of a one-of-a-kind love. Unusual rings are embraced by the bride who requires statement-making jewelry, and her choice of style runs the gamut from quietly minimalistic to exuberantly ornate.
Sure, the white round diamond has long been the classic engagement ring, but many gorgeous options exist beyond that typical style. Some are rendered unique due their setting design, be it modern or vintage-inspired. Others stand out due to their metal, ranging from rose gold to a highly-polished platinum band. A constellation of gemstones is there for one's choosing, including deeply red rubies, ink-toned sapphires, blushing morganites and opalescent pearls. Here, we've selected the most stunning alternative engagement rings from Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus and more.
