Wedding season is upon us! It's always an exciting time- all the showers, brunches, the wedding itself- I love it (remember how I was in 14 weddings over the course of last year? Haha)!
Now that I've been married for a few years, I've had the opportunity to think about things that I wish I would have done differently. As far as our wedding goes, I wouldn't change a darn thing. To me, it was the most special day, and it was exactly what I hoped it would be.
But I would change a few things about our registry choices- and I figured I would share them with you. Here we go!
Let's compare the following two pictures... The same meal, two different bowls.
Isn't it UNBELIEVABLE how much better the food looks in the white bowl?! Mind blowing! I wish I would have known that little tidbit of information when we were registering three years ago (Whoa! Has it really been that long?!). Even though colorful dishes can be fun, I am 100% convinced that food looks WAY prettier when it's served on/in something white.
While I'm singing the praises of white dishes, I need to talk about white towels and how they're the best.
We made the silly decision to register for white, brown, khaki and blue towels at several stores. Now, we have 4 different shades of blue towels. Y'all, we should have gone with all white. Because we can bleach them to get the nasty moldy towel smell out, and we obviously can't do that with the colored towels. We do the hot water/vinegar/baking soda trick with all of our towels too, but the moldy smell comes back pretty quickly. So I'm telling you- register for all white towels. You won't regret it.
Also- let me just say that there's no shame in registering for some decor. We didn't register for any decor, and we probably received 8 lamps from different people, as well as 20 picture frames. There were some that happened to go nicely with our furniture, and then there were others that didn't at all. So you know what? Go ahead and register for some home decor items at Target- it will help your friends out who don't feel like buying you some kitchen tongs.
Speaking of kitchen utensils.. (Don't you love that little segue?)
Don't register for every kitchen item under the sun. We made that mistake. Y'all- we never use a kitchen blow torch. But we have one. We don't need 30 casserole dishes- but we have them. See where I'm going with this? Register for things that you KNOW you will use on a regular basis. We love our blender. We are OBSESSED with our KitchenAid. Yes, you really need more than one baking sheet.
So those are the lessons I learned the hard way. Would any of you "unregister" for some things if you could?!
Have a wonderful, sunshiney, happy day!
