Introducing Wanderable

Most brides that I talk to have a difficult time with two things: the honeymoon and setting up their registry. There are SO many honeymoon destinations to choose from, where to even start? And for the registry, either they have their homes set up and already have what they need, they really don’t want that fancy china set, or have …

If You Scan It, It Will Come

Posted 02/24/2010 by in The Registry \ 8 comments

Like many other brides, I thought registering would be the highlight of the wedding planning process. Contrary to popular opinion, it’s been little fun. Oh sure, at first I went all G.I. Jane with the scanning gun, shooting everything that struck my fancy. But then I began to realize, if you scan it, it will come.

Although my fiancé and …


What does your registry say about you?

Posted 05/27/2009 by in The Registry \ 3 comments

Almost all wedding registries include the basics: dinnerware and flatware, pots and pans, knives, kitchen electrics like blenders and toasters and mixers, towels, and sheets. But colors and styles are what set each one apart. The choices really reflect the personality of the couple. I actually find it pretty fun to check out what couples choose to decorate their homes …


Wedvice: Gifts and Registering

Beach-inspired Tabletop. Scroll down for details and description!

They always say it’s better to give than it is to receive. That may very well be the case- especially since it seems like etiquette for this arena of weddings seems to either be outgrown by the industry, or difficult to decode for most.

Let me back up. The Broke-Ass Groom and I have been living together for over 6 years. We’ve got most of what a couple needs to get by, but its all a modge-podge of chipped Ikea plates, dog-chewed towels, mason jar glassware, and …
