Bride’s Diary: Registry Madness!

Wedding Paper Divas is bursting with staff grooms and brides-to-be who are currently planning their weddings. We’re happy to share their stories with you as a part of this fun feature!

It is now five months before the wedding, and I am now thinking all about my wedding registry. My fiancé David and I have lived together for over six years, so honestly, what do we need? A new set of dishes perhaps? Bedding? A new coffee table? Sounds good to me!

We have decided to register at Pottery Barn, Macy’s and Target. I’m not going to lie, I have my eye on several things.  Here is a sneak peek into my registry…

I am registering for that fabulous vintage trunk from Pottery Barn which will be used either as a coffee table or at the foot of our bed:

My fiancé David and I are big entertainers, so we thought the platter below from Pottery barn was also a must-have!

Here are two of my absolute faves that we registered for from Target:

Hope you enjoyed my little preview, and I can’t wait to check in again on my wedding planning soon!

Meet Alison

Alison met David over six years ago while attending the University of Oregon. Alison and David are grateful for everything that they have gone through together while dating, since it has made them stronger and molded them into the couple that they are today.

David proposed to Alison at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco and they are excited to get married August 25, 2012 in Atherton, CA.

Ask Etta: Sending Gifts for a Bridal Shower You Can’t Attend?

While we dish about the hottest trends and latest designs (aka the fun parts of wedding planning!) we also know how stressful prepping for the big day can be. So, we would like to formally introduce you to Etta, our new etiquette expert. She’s ready and happy to delve into your every etiquette dilemma.

Angela Asks…

I’m not able to make it to my cousin’s bridal shower. Should I still send a gift?

Etta Says…

While gift giving is never a requirement, bridal showers are the only pre-wedding event where gifts are typically expected. You should never feel obligated to send a gift if you can’t attend, but it is a nice gesture if you’re able to do so—and one the bride will truly appreciate!
