It’s common knowledge that Bridezillas aren’t wild about surprises, whether they’re in the form of your caterer notifying you at the last minute that the lobster shipment didn’t arrive on time and they’ll have to substitute monkfish, or your out-of-touch aunt gifting you with coral-colored culottes she found on the Dress Barn sales rack. This is why registering for wedding gifts is one of the very finest times in a Bridezilla’s life – finally, a guarantee that you’ll love (and even – gasp – use) the gifts you’re getting!
Don’t think we’d leave you alone during this important time. Follow the cut for our exhaustive listing of the very best wedding registries to guarantee you a haul sweeter than anything Santa could fit in his sleigh.
Who are we kidding? At least half of our future matrimonial bliss will revolve around the contents of that gorgeous stack of unmistakable robin’s egg blue boxes. We’re not saying we’re getting married just for the sake of registering at Tiffany’s, but it definitely factored into the decision-making process.
Dream acquisition: Birds of the Nile cake plate Some people might not understand spending $1,350 on a cake plate. Those people are philistines.
Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein – you may have visions of fabulous handbags and chic evening gowns dancing in your head right about now, but in fact those are also to be found throughout the Home Decor section, be still our interior-designing hearts. And we never knew we could get so covetous over plates until we discovered the Fine China section, either.
Dream acquisition: Galaxie Dinnerware by Faberge (pictured at the top). The only downside to this gorgeous set is that we might destroy our diets by finding excuses to sit down and eat.
Just because you don’t intend to spend too much time in the kitchen, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a setup that would make Mario Batali jealous. Sign up for all the basics here, and then throw in something fabulous and extravagant like the Rishi Tea Set. Mmm.
Dream acquisition: Monogrammed Caviar Server. For the Bridezilla who has everything…almost.
It’s admittedly not the most glamorous wedding registry in the world, but where else are you going to sign up to receive the Wii? Um, for our future husband, of course. (Fun fact: DDR is cheaper and more effective than Pilates. Or so we hear.)
Dream acquisition: 1200 Thread Count Egyptian Cotton Sheets. Oh yes oh yes oh yes.
Not quite ready to demand triple-digit dinnerware from the family? Just call it tar-zhey, darling, and pray their discount designer antics someday turn towards the newlywed set.
Dream acquisition: Chip and Dip Set. We’re simple Bridezillas with simple needs. Sometimes those needs involve salsa.
