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.
The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
The mother of the bride holds a highly esteemed position within the wedding party, and she should look the part. That's why we've assembled the best mother-of-the-bride dresses in prices under $250, and we've included plus size, tea length, long length and evening dresses so that your mom will look elegant on your big day. After all, she'll be the second most noticed woman in the room.
There are many bridal options available to moms as they shop for that moment-defining outfit. We've listed flattering mother-of-the-bride dresses that feature an array of tailored touches. Your mother can choose from dresses that include empire waists, flutter sleeves, draping, A-line skirts and strategically placed ruffles. Her attire can exude any mood, from casual to formal, and these styles can take her to any wedding, from oceanfront ceremonies to ballroom events. Shop our favorite finds below.
