This post is in partnership with Bed Bath & Beyond, a brand I love! All opinions are my own.
If you’ve found yourself here then a Congratulations is likely in order, you’re getting married! The dress, the cake, the invitations… aaah! It can be daunting, but have no fear, I’m going to break down one of my favorite elements of the engagement process: the registry! Specifically, a curated list of my top favorite registry picks for party lovers from Bed Bath & Beyond !
I had the privilege of visiting my local Bed Bath & Beyond store here in Tennessee to meet with a registry consultant! They have wonderful registry consultants to help newly engaged couples with the registry process. Whether you want to create your registry online, in-store, or a little of both, they can help you every step of the way. Perhaps you’re stuck on what items you need for bedding, bath, or want to mix-and-match your dinnerware, they can help! Plus, the selection is even larger online so it’s not too hard to see why Bed Bath & Beyond is the #1 place to registry for wedding gifts. First, a few photos of how I am using my picks followed by an easy-to-follow clickable list for you!
A few more reasons why I love Bed Bath & Beyond’s registry? First of all, everything ships for free from your registry. Next up, there are lots of free gifts you can receive with purchases off your registry (and a cute tote full of goodies when you register). Returns are easy and you get 10% off in-store AND online after the wedding day. Whew, no-brainer, friends!
I want to list out my top registry picks for party lovers and then explain a bit of the reasoning behind my picks! Without further ado, here’s the list:
When it comes to cookware, keep it simple in color and style. Copper is on trend and beautiful, I love the Kitchen Aid Copper Cookware set! If you need to narrow it down, you can do a lot with a sauté pan and a casserole, these are my top two picks! Be sure a few of your cookware pieces can go from oven to table like Le Creuset cookware. I selected white so that it will be a versatile color for all occasions!
SERVEWARE & DINNERWARE
- Nambe Skye Hors D’oeuvre Tray
- Fitz & Floyd White Cake Stand
- Brian Gluckstein by Lenox | Salad Plates, Soup Bowls
- Denmark Scalloped Serving Platter
- Le Creuset Tier Tray
- Vera Wang Gold Serving Set
My favorite part of the registry, serveware and dinnerware! This is where the fun begins. Hands down, my #1 tip for newly engaged couples when registering is to pick classy white dinnerware and serving pieces. If I could become a spokesperson for Olivia & Oliver, I would. You’ll see it in my book releasing next fall, you’ll see it here in these photos, and you might remember it from this pineapple tablescape. It can be dressed up with soup or salad plates from other dinnerware lines (I love the cobalt greek key from the Brian Gluckstein by Lenox line). The Olivia & Oliver line serves as the perfect, versatile dinnerware for tablescaping all year long! For serveware, white cake stands and uniquely shaped platters add classic elegance for serving up everything from birthday cakes to mini party bites.
- Olivia & Oliver Red Wine Glasses
- Olivia & Oliver White Wine Glasses
- Olivia & Oliver Madison Gold Cocktail Glasses
You can rule the world with these 3 glass sets. A basic white and red as well as a gold rimmed cocktail! They’re simple enough for everyday occasions yet the lines are sleek for fancy sipping!
Parties are prepared in the kitchen so I’d be remiss not to mention a few of my favorite appliances. First off, you’ve heard me talk about my love for my KitchenAid Copper Mixer before so I must say it again! You can do anything from baking cakes to shredding chicken with a KitchenAid. Next up, a food processor is a great item to have for slicing fruits and vegetables as well as prepping fresh salsa, for example. I love a good blender (like a Vitamix) for prepping blended cocktails, dips, sauces, and even soups!
You can always add a few extra fancies on your registry such as napkins and placemats as well as candlestick holders and vases. Select versatile pieces that will work well for all occasions!
If you have friends getting married (best friend, sister, neighbor…), send them over here for a good place to start when it comes to registry essentials, especially if she’s a fellow hostess with the mostess! Plus, remind her to check out the Bed Bath & Beyond website for Rock Your Registry events as well as schedule an in-store appointment to get all squared away with registry picks!
