Lovely Wedding Remembrances

Yellow and grey were the colors of the day, and such a cute day it turned out to be! Gorgeous blooms from DIRT Flowers, darling stationery from Paper Source, and a beautiful venue, Cross Timbers Winery, made the day all the more perfect. The cherry on top that sweetened up the wedding was the dessert bar featuring Zenzero Bakery and Sprinkles, with mason jar desserts! Be sure to scroll down to see the sweet and lovely wedding remembrances below.

Where you came from will always be a part of you, and this bride chose to create a stunning display of her roots. Three generations of wedding dresses all in a row made for a very beautiful sight. They even had lights under them so they could be viewed at night. One of the most amazing wedding remembrances we have ever seen. Don’t you think?

Guest wrote their well wishes on a wooden plank that had the portraits of the couple mounted on it from their engagement session. A lovely wedding remembrance to hang in their new home together.

Bright centerpieces are always a great way to add pops of color to your reception. By no means do you have to use the same flowers for every table! Mix and match a little to give each table its own unique feel.

Aren’t mason jar desserts just the cutest? We sure think so! And they’re so easy to create:
1. Gather up a suitable amount of mason jars for your guest list.
2. Fill it with your favorite homemade treat or have your favorite dessert vendor, like Zenzero Bakery, fill it with their yummy goodness for you.
3. Add some undeniably cute touches, such as bakers twine bows, custom stickers, glitter, and more!

Ten Wedding Registry Items You Should Add

Add Items To Your Registry

How much fun are you having building your wedding registry? You’ve been meticulously planning out the perfect registry for months, and are all set with your beautiful dinnerware, your complete flatware set, new towels, that amazing mint colored mixer, and those adorable napkins. Now all the things you have been coveting for you new home will soon be yours!

You might think you have everything you need, but we have a few  you might have missed. Here are our ten registry items we think you should add to your Macy’s Wedding Registry, that you may have forgotten about.

Macy's wedding registry items

Dish Rack
That glorious China Set that you registered for is not dishwasher safe. Yes… you need to hand wash them! Luckily we can personally vouch for this simplehuman Dish Rack. It is really amazing! Even though we have a dishwasher, it is used daily. Our favorite feature is the oversized utensil holder for our knives that are not dishwasher safe, and that removable wine glass holder is great when we have guests over. Generally your wine glasses are dishwasher safe, but for your extra fancy ones you will want to wash them by hand.

Trash Can
Although a trash can is not exactly glamorous and tends to hide under the sink, it will more than likely be your most used gift. Choose one that will sort trash and recyclables, making you one step closer to saving the planet. Bonus! This smarthuman Trash Can comes with a 10-year warranty! So, you can ask for another one at your ten year vow renewal.

After you have organized your wardrobes, you’re going to need to put those dirty clothes somewhere. Register for a sturdy hamper like this Neatfreak Hampers, Everfresh Laundry Triple Sorter that doubles as an ironing board. Hello space saver! Plus this triple sorter has environmentally-friendly enzymes built into the fabric of the sorters to keep your laundry room stink and stench free. Since we all know your husbands socks do not smell April fresh.

A High Powered Vacuum
like the Dyson DC50 . This  mega machine works in parallel to increase airflow and capture even more microscopic dust. We promise that you will use this almost daily, and be happy that your floors and the air around you is clean. A higher priced registry item, but a must have!

Since you have that handy dandy new ironing board, upgrade to a new iron. The Rowenta DG5030 is powered by steam, wrinkles virtually melt off your clothing. A little pricer than a regular iron, but unless you have just bought in a commercial laundry system for your own home, less trips to the dry cleaner…Hooray!

Macy's Wedding Registry

Roasting Pan
Guess whose turn it is to cook for the next holiday? Yep … yours. Trust us you will use it again and again to host your loved ones. Especially if you use this gorgeous Mauviel Tri-Ply Copper Roasting Pan… it will make you want to cook again and again. Bonus, it has a lifetime warranty, so it is your forever roasting pan – just like your love.

Serving Platter
Speaking of holidays, since you are getting the roasting pan, might as well get the platters too. You will need to cook the turkey and dish it up, even though those aluminum bakers pans are handy it will be an eye sore at your table. Be sure to register for extra platters and serving dishes to prepare for your first holiday dinner. Just like the Villeroy & Boch Urban Nature Collection above. We love the modern relaxed flair it has, and that it is dishwasher and microwave safe… bonus!

Food Storage
Since you are going to become an extraordinary chef with all your amazing new gadgets, you are going to have a lot of leftovers. Be sure to register for a food storage system that is also easily stored. The key to a spic and span space. We love ones with different colored lids to brighten things up like this The Pyrex 19 Piece Bake, Store and Prep Set.

Herb and Spice Rack
Again, all about optimizing space and organizing your kitchen is key. You can toss out all of your free floating spices and use this Martha Stewart space-saving spice rack. Place it on your counter top, and it will not take up a lot of space, because it sits flush against the wall leaving lots of room for all those fancy meals you are going to make.

Closet Organizer
With this easy system, you can extend hanging space. The Neat Freak Organization System does not require any tools for installation and is so easy to move and shift around when your wardrobe or your closet grows. With a one year warranty you can get a new one for your first anniversary if need be.

Although some of the items are not incredibly glamorous, we assure you they are all things you will use daily, and will be so glad you added them to your Macy’s wedding registry. Do you think we missed any? Let us know, helpful tips are always appreciated. Happy Wedding Planning!

From the Vendors:
It was really one of the best ideas I have ever come across on how to tie the knot. There were even some games, just like you would do with your family on a real picnic.

Looking for the perfect way to relax the atmosphere of your wedding without losing the fun? This picnic perfection is the way to do it. Point your guests in the right direction with a cute sign, and make sure to include a good combination of games and seating areas. Last but not least, don’t forget the food! Treats always make for a happy crowd.

Everything was personal, laid back and just a lot of fun. I was very happy to work with wedding planner Irina Thiessen at this wedding, who worked tirelessly to make it the fantastic day that it was. She put so much creativity and thought into every detail. And the outcome was perfect.

Clever guest book idea:
Marco and Steffi hung chalkboard hearts on an old vintage door that was propped up against a tree. Guests signed their names on the heart, which I am sure they will later use as a keepsake from their wedding. An important tip: to preserve chalkboard signatures spray something like this on your chalkboards after to preserve the artwork.
