11 Gifts from Jennifer Lawrence’s Amazon Wedding Registry You Actually Need

11 Gifts from Jennifer Lawrence’s Amazon Wedding Registry You Actually Need
Shop Story

Even Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence admits that although planning a wedding can be exciting, it can also be overwhelming. This is especially true of creating a wedding registry. Because, do you really need that? It’s with the hope of helping, and maybe inspiring, other couples that Lawrence has shared her curated list of must-have products from her own wedding registry. And, oh, do we love peeking inside the home of the star and her soon-to-be husband, Cooke Maroney, an art gallery director. But, us mere mortals may not need every single item on the A-list celeb’s list. Ahem, pasta maker. And a $360 cashmere travel blanket, socks, and eye mask set may be a bit too indulgent for the average bride (or maybe not!). To help you save time (because you’re busy planning a wedding), we narrowed down J- Law’s wedding registry to the top 11 products you really need, if, say, you aren’t a Hollywood actress. That’s not to say we don’t recommend some of the splurge items on Lawrence’s list (weighted blanket). You’ll find our list arranged by category, from kitchen to outdoor, to travel and tech. Here’s wishing you a ton of fun as you get ready to register like a star.

 

 

Planning Your Wedding Registry

 

Tips:

Jennifer Lawrence says she registered on Amazon.com because you can find everything in one place. That said, you may want to consider creating a wedding registry with more than one retailer. This will ensure you register for all the products you need, and give your guests options when it comes to shopping for your gifts. It’s a good idea to attend a wedding registry event at a store like Bed, Bath & Beyond, Williams Sonoma, or Pottery Barn. And make sure your signif other comes, too. That way you two can ask registry experts questions about what you need, and see in person, as well as touch and feel various options in each category, from bedding, to cookware. And just keep in mind that even if you don’t think you need 12 place settings now, you may one day. So, don’t under-register, and then wind up wishing you could find matching items down the road.

 

 

Creating a Wedding Registry

 

Budget:

Be sure to include items at a range of price points, so all of your guests can find a gift that works for their budget. This is also your chance to get things you wouldn’t typically buy for yourself (like an espresso maker). Don’t be afraid to ask for the high-price items of your dreams.

 

 

Style:

Register for what you and your soon-to-be spouse love, not what your mother thinks you should like. Remember, you have to live with that comforter, those plates, and that lamp. So be sure your registry reflects your taste. If your tastes don’t quite align with your partner, compromise. You want your shared space to feel like home for both of you.

 

 

Other Considerations:

Let your guests know where you registered when you send out bridal shower and wedding invitations, as well as on your wedding website. It’s also OK to register at non-traditional retailers, like REI, or for travel or even cash.

“These AirPods are amazing because they automatically play audio as soon as you put them in your ears, and pause when you take them out. A simple double-tap during music listening will skip forward. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call, or even get directions, just say ‘Hey Siri’ to activate. Additionally, they deliver five hours of listening time on a single charge.”
