A Bridal Registry With Comfy Blankets And Home Goods
Creating a bridal registry can be a fun and exciting time for most couples, or at least the woman. You can finally ask for all the useless stuff you want but didn't feel like spending money on. But before you go crazy with popcorn makers and a chocolate fountain, you should first put on all the necessary items that you will need to make your house a home with your new spouse.
The kitchen is probably the most important room and it's where you'll need the most items. Basics like dinnerware, flatware, and glassware are essential. Don't be afraid to ask for extra sets of everything just in case anything breaks. The worst is when your pattern is discontinued and you end up with that one mismatched set. Throw in place mats and napkins to complete the look. Then think about pots and pans, knife sets, utensils, and about a hundred gadgets - such as can openers, garlic presses, cheese graters, etc. Don't be afraid to add these smaller, inexpensive items. Some people would rather create a basket full of said items rather than buying one giant gift.
After the kitchen is done, move onto the bedroom. Even though you might have a good amount of bedroom items, this is the time to upgrade and ask for nicer things! Pick out a new cotton sheet set or two, a comforter, new blankets, throw pillows, and anything else you could possibly want for your bed. Blankets and throws will be a nice addition in the colder months and you'll be glad you asked for it. Remember to ask for a second cotton sheet set so you always have a spare when you do laundry. Throw in some curtains and maybe a trunk to store your extra blanket in.
The bathroom will also require some much-needed necessities. Find plush bathroom towels, bathmat, and some new accessories like a soap dispenser and toothbrush holder. A few shower curtains will come in handy down the line when your current one gets old and moldy. An over-the-door towel rack will certainly prove useful, as will a cozy bathrobe.
After the essentials are taken care of, think about what items you would like for the rest of the home. You can ask for smaller pieces of furniture and décor items like framed artwork and candle sets. This is your opportunity to ask for the items you really want in your home, and your friends and family members are willing to buy them! Just remember that if you list it, they will buy.
