After our engagement party two weekends ago and our shower this past weekend, Tim and I have received a number of very thoughtful and kind gifts. And as I mentioned in my post about the engagement party, it really isn't the gifts that matter at this time; it's the amazing friends and family that we are so blessed to have. The gifts are just the fun addition.
And from what we registered for initially, we've received quite a bit. We may need to add a bit more for spring showers and the wedding. But from what we've received, here are a few of my favorites and why. If you're a bride or soon to be, think about some of what I've received.
And if you're a bride or have recently been, what are some suggestions that you have for things to add that I may not have thought of?
I cheated an bought these pillows off the registry on Tuesday because they're no longer available in store or online, and I happened to find a few after searching high and low. But they're on my registry, so they count. And I love them because they have so many great colors in them and can easily be incorporated into any color scheme.
The Le Creuset line is amazing, and I already love the casserole dish we received from a friend. It's stoneware and distributes heat evenly, and I know Tim will really love it once I use it to cook a casserole or some enchiladas.
I am finally the owner of some All-Clad cookware; the measuring cups and spoons along with the multi-pot are amazing and such fantastic quality.
And from a great family friend, we received our Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer! It's up in Chattanooga waiting on me to drive up for Christmas to bring it home with me. And I can't wait. Tim has been so excited about this one too, because he knows what goodies will come from it!
We received many other fun and beautiful things that I can't wait to use!
Question for you: can I use this stuff before the wedding, or is that bad luck?
And what were some of your favorite registry items that I might think of adding?
And to go along with Wedding Wednesday, we're having our engagement pictures taken today! I can't wait to share some!
