So where do you plan on setting up your bridal registry? Most of the time the answers you’ll hear are Macy’s, Bloomingdales, or Target. Today I’m going to give you a few different ideas, something other than your standard china, appliances, and bedding, from the ultimate in luxury to the ultimate in excitement!
Don’t want to get too far from tradition but still want unique gifts? Register at Barney’s, they have pretty much everything for the home, tableware. They also have clothing for men and women and you can also ask for gift cards on your registry. But what makes Barney’s different than other department stores? The products are all premium quality and are hard to find. But, in order to register you’ll have to go to New York, Beverly Hills, or Chicago. Guests can shop online from anywhere.
For the ultimate in luxury and service, register at Gearys Beverly Hills. Gearys, shown to the right, has been a tradition in Beverly Hills for more than 75 years. They offer the finest in tabletop items, china, silver, and linens. They also carry fine watches and jewelry. But the thing Geary’s is most famous for is the service. During the registry process, the bride is pampered with attention for as long as required to put together the perfect registry. According to Helene Hale, Gearys Senior Sales Associate, they actually “play house” and set the table as if it was in the brides dining room to show her what her choices will look like. You will also have to visit one of the two Gearys Beverly Hills locations to register but your guests can buy online anywhere.
For the more “extreme” bride and groom, a bridal registry is available at REI. From biking to mountain climbing equipment, REI has it. They also offer eco-friendly travel from REI Adventures, to spice up your honeymoon.
Speaking of eco-friendly…checkout the gift registry at Gaiam.com. They have a large collection of eco-friendly products without compromising on quality or appearance! They carry a wide variety of household products, clothing, etc.
But if you still want to go with the standard registry I highly recommend you checkout the “I do” Foundation gift registry. If you register with most of your standard registries including Macy’s, Linens and Things, etc a portion of the price of the purchases will be donated to a charity of your choice! And, the best part is it’s totally free!
Be unique go out and find a different gift registry but please check out the “I do” Foundation gift registry so the rest of the world also benefits with you!
