Wedding Wednesday | Wedding Registry with Meg

Happy 2016!!!

I hope you guys all had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year and just a little heads up, I may be slightly MIA this week...trying to just catch up from a crazy few weeks with the holidays and my 2nd job ending this week has me slightly preoccupied. I'm so excited to be starting my new year with just one job that I love and so much less stress in my life!!! This also means I'll get more time to devote to my blog which is one of my goals for 2016!

Today is the first Wedding Wednesday  of the year and I'm so excited for today's post!! I haven't gotten a chance to really talk about my wedding registry or anything related to that, so today's post is gonna be perfect for those who are lost and confused on what to add to their registry!!

You may notice below, I have a familiar face...MEG!! She's back for this week to help get you bride-to-be's squared away with your registry! If you don't know Meg, she's such a sweet person and I've loved getting to know her and think you need to send her some love!


Good morning, MakeupHER readers!  I am so excited to be guest posting for Nikki today and to be back for Wedding Wednesday.  My name is Meg and I blog over at Borrowed Heaven.

I have been married for a year and a half and had so much fun recapping my wedding last year on my blog.  If you're interested in a purple and teal late summer wedding in New England, you can see all of posts here!

Today I'm here to share a practical post for all of you future brides.  My husband and I loved putting together ideas for our registry.  Those little barcode scanners are too much fun!  We ended up registering at Bed, Bath, and Beyond as well as Macy's to give our guests a couple of options for where to shop.  While we love our dishes, cake stand, and iron, here are the items we don't know how we ever lived without:

Non-stick saute pan: This thing is huge (5 quarts), and we use it at least once per week for one-pan dinners.
Tongs: These pair perfectly with the non-stick pan and don't scratch it.
Beach towels: Since we were moving South as I registered, I thought towels would be a perfect addition for all the time spent outside.  We use them all spring, summer, and fall at the pool, and they're great quality.
Tea kettle: I wasn't sure how much I'd use it, but I figured I'd get it to match the other tangerine appliances since our old one was starting to fall apart.  Now, I boil water for tea almost everyday, and it's so cute on our stovetop.
Kitchen mat: Honestly, we want another one for in front of the stove!  It's in front of our sink and makes washing dishes so much easier on your feet!
Vacuum: Now I'm really starting to sound like an old married lady, but this thing is awesome because it has so many attachments and removable parts so you don't have to bend down to vacuum!

There you have it! If you're looking to register for your own wedding, definitely think about adding some of these fantastic items to your list!




  1. Haha I have the same vacuum! Is your like super heavy though? I don't know if I'm just a weakling but dragging it around the house is impossible.

    1. Hmmm I don't think mine is heavy at all... but then again, I do drag it along the carpet a lot haha!

  2. I just got two pairs - large and small - of those tongs for Christmas and I love them. Definitely a must have!

  3. Yay congrats on the new job gurlie! And hiiiii Meg! Awesome tips and now I totally need one of those kitchen mats <3

  4. Giving guests options at a couple different places is definitely a good idea!! Congrats on the new job - yay for more time to blog! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  5. I 100% agree with the nonstick skillet! We use ours all the time and wouldn't be able to live without it!
