Jung Lee, founder of new wedding registry concept, Slowdance, and wedding/event planning and design firm Fête, shares her top 5 wedding registry splurges below as we approach the start of engagement season.
With Slowdance, Jung and her team of experts work with a couple the same way a stylist would work with a fashion client, getting to know their lifestyle and habits, and then producing curated product collections that fit right in to make their daily life beautiful and functional. Every Slowdance product has been carefully thought over by Jung and her design team, who scour the globe constantly sourcing from new artists, while still carrying mainstay brands that people know and love.
Each couple gets a personal Registry Designer, almost like a wedding planner for your registry, to oversee and guide the whole process. The best part: you’ll never have to waste a Saturday with your fiancé mindlessly scanning at items you’ve been told you need, and your guests will be able to gift you with something truly special.
If you’re looking for a meaningful splurge that will last a lifetime, Lee is currently obsessing over the below, all available when you register at Slowdance.
The Zoo Elephant, Baccarat, $1,400 —"The elephant is a symbol of stability and good fortune, and is meant to invoke blessings on a new project. What better totem to have as you kick off your married life together."
Umbrella Stand Architettura, Fornasetti, $1,360 — "An umbrella stand is the first thing any guest sees after your welcome mat and whoever opens the door. Why not make sure it's memorable and unique—something that deserves a permanent place as greeter.
Blue Fluted Teapot, Royal Copenhagen, $925 —"This service is celebrating it's130th year anniversary, and it's one that has clearly earned its place at the table. We love that each is hand printed, assembled and glazed by hand—even the pretty snail shell decoration on every lid."
Mood Flatware Set, Christolfe, $1,190 —"One of the challenges when investing in silver flatware is the need for additional, thoughtful storage. This brilliant and elegant design houses 24 pieces—6 settings—in one seamless stainless steel container."
Panama Tray, Reflections Copenhagen, $1,250 —"The pieces from Reflections Copenhagen are fun, iconoclastic and whimsical. Registry items needn't be conventional in their classical elegance. You will want to place this tray among traditional picture frames and other family mementos for a smart, sharp contrast."
