Bedroom Registry Must-Haves from Crate and Barrel

Are you wondering how to register for your wedding? It can seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn’t have to be! Instead of registering for everything at once, we recommend moving from room to room, creating your perfect registry as you go. To inspire you to do just that, we’ve teamed up with the folks at Crate and Barrel to share our top bedroom registry must-haves for your wedding registry list. By focusing on one room at a time, registering for your wedding will be a breeze! We’ve pieced together our favorite finds from their collection including a stunning duvet cover, sheet set, pillow shams, a lamp, table, and more. Let’s get started!

Bedroom Registry Must-Haves

First, you’ll want to pick out a headboard and foot board, if you don’t already have one. It will set the foundation to the rest of your room as the ultimate statement piece. If I had to pick one for my dream bedroom, it would be the Linea. It’s made of all teak and has a light, airy feel–with a modern, minimalist look.

Next, add your bedding. I’ll admit, it was tough to choose just one from their collection, but this yellow and blue set really stole my heart. The colors are soft, warm, and inviting… and it goes exceptionally well with the Linea bed mentioned above. I also pieced together the striped sheets and the pillow shams for a more pulled-together look.

For pillows, we chose ultra-soft down pillows and then infused the room with added warmth and texture with a lambskin rug and a plush alpaca dove throw. Don’t forget the woven basket– your new favorite place for storing throws and decorative pillows when not in use.

Oh, this is all sounding so luxurious already!

Next, you’ll want to add a bedside table and a lamp. The bedside table in white was an eye-catching piece (I love the oval shape), paired with the lamp that offers just a hint of metallic shine. Add a reading chair, like this one, and your bedroom just became your cozy new reading nook, too.

If you’re like me, you can’t bear to have an empty nightstand. The lamp is one thing, but you need a place to put your book and a few decorative accents. I love candles, so I added one with a hurricane vaseand two petite bud vases atop an elegant wood tray.

Finally, don’t forget the photo frames and wall shelves: you’ll want them to showcase your gorgeous wedding photos forever after.

Easy (+ Cute!) Nail Polish Bridal Shower Favors

One of our favorite bridal shower favor ideas is nail polish. Why? Nail polish is universally adored and appreciated by women, and one can never have too many polishes (similar to shoes). It’s also a customizable favor, with hundreds of shades available right at your fingertips from which to choose (so coordinating with your color palette is a breeze). It’s also a truly functional gift, so you know your recipients will use it. So, how do you make your nail polish bridal shower favors even cuter? Add a handmade tag, of course! We spotted this tag over at Print Smitten and Tara paired two insanely pretty polishes with it. They’re both from Essie, and if you know me, you know I heart Essie brand polish. It’s just sooo shiny and lasts!

The tags are really cute + customizable, too! You can even choose a favorite style of twine or ribbon.

WHERE TO FIND THE POLISH?

I found these polishes that I’m pretty sure are the correct colors. The minty-green one is called Turquoise and Caicos and the coral-y one is called Haute in the Heat:

Bridesmaid Dress Worn Different Ways? – Ask Emmaline

Picking out a bridesmaid dress can be tough work. You want to please everyone, fit everyone’s budget, and pick something they’ll love as much as you do. That’s why today’s post is going to help you out so much. And, we’re also helping bride-to-be, Amy, who wrote us with this question:

Hi Emmaline. I saw a wedding where the bridesmaids wore the same bridesmaid dress different ways (with unique necklines), but they all wore the same color. The dresses were short and flowy. Any tips on where to find them?

Great question, Amy! The term for a bridesmaid dress worn different ways is a convertible dress (sometimes called an infinity dress, too!) A bridesmaid dress worn different ways (but in the same color) is a smart choice for your bridesmaid attire, and today we’re telling you five reasons why. But first… check out this adorable example of bridesmaids wearing the convertible dresses. We love how the bride chose navy blue convertible dresses, but then had her girls accentuate their look with brightly-colored heels and bright blooms.

But first, here’s an example of convertible dresses in action:

Convertible Bridesmaid Dress Worn Different Ways

1. They are available in different colors.

There’s bound to be a color that coordinates with your color palette perfectly.

2. She’ll ACTUALLY wear it again.

Oh, we’ve heard it all before. “You’ll totally want to wear the dress again!” These dresses are made of jersey material that’s totally comfortable, so you can bet she’ll wear it again. Plus, if you choose a more neutral tone (black, grey, or navy, just to name a few) you’ll be positively sure she’ll actually wear her dress again.

3. This style is easy to accessorize.

Just as you saw in the first image in this article, you can really let each bridesmaid’s personality shine with colorful accessories, whether matching or not. Shoes, statement necklaces, hair accessories, a clutch purse, or earrings are just ways to play up the color.

4. She can pick a neckline that flatters her body.

Each bridesmaid’s body type is different; why stick every woman in the same exact dress? Instead, she can wear her dress in any neckline style she chooses, whether that is strapless or halter or one-shoulder, just to name a few.

5. These dresses are actually affordable!

Many of the dresses shown here are $75, which is an awesome price point. And, each dress is handmade, right here in the USA.
