Hi friends and happy Thursday!  This is a super exiting week for Tony and I in the wedding planning world because we had our food tasting yesterday – holy yumminess – and we met with our wedding coordinator to finalize day-of details!  It’s becoming so real and I have to pinch myself sometimes because I can’t believe we’re getting married in just about 2 months!  After almost 9 years of dating, there were a few years that I didn’t really believe we would actually get to this point, and now that it’s all coming together and the countdown is on, I’m feeling overwhelmed with so much love and happiness!  Also, my first bridal shower is this coming Sunday and I got the prettiest blush pink dress for the occasion.  It’s going to be such a wonderful day with my dearest family and friends!

And speaking of bridal shower, I get the butterflies every time someone mentions our registry!  Tony and I had the best time registering for wedding gifts at Borsheims!  I was a kid in a candy store and had to practice some major self control in order to not register for every single thing.  Tony and I have lived together for 7.5 years, which means our house ware collection consists of his, mine, and our parents’ hand-me-downs!  Which we have plenty of.  But as we renovate our house and I have big kitchen dreams, I loved the idea of finally having our own things – that reflect our style.  This registry represents a new chapter for us – our future as Mr. and Mrs.!  So it took about 5 minutes with Jodi, the registry extrordinare, to go from the mindset that we don’t need more things, to give me all the flatware, stemware, and serving bowls!  I am so excited for the beautiful items we picked out!  Tony even chose our new silverware and we both laughed when we saw that it was Kate Spade.  He’s a man after my heart!  The Gift Department at Borsheims is unique in that they not only have the essentials, such as flatware, stemware, napkins, placemats, towels, etc., but they also have an amazing selection of home decor, gifts, and accessories.  Yes we need plates, but we also need cute pillows, and a Kate Spade tea kettle!  We mixed practicality with personality and curated a registry that fit who we are as a couple now, and the family and home we hope for in the future!

The registering experience at Borsheims is so personal and intimate.  No guns here!  A very kind and knowledgable Borsheims Gift Associate will walk with you as you browse and brainstorm.  Seeing as I personally have not yet hosted a holiday meal, I wasn’t quite sure as to which items were necessary and ones that might just become dust collectors.  I was so thankful to have Jodi’s help to explain everything to Tony and I.   She helped us stay focused on our needs.  When I felt like we were registering for five thousand bowls, she asked us to think of what our daily lives look like – i.e. what are the things you use most?!  And turns out, bowls are our business so it made sense that we were gravitating towards them.  Every time I picked something out and asked about the price, I felt guilty.  Even if it wasn’t expensive, I still felt bad!  I just know how hard our friends and family work and don’t ever want to ask for too much.  Again, Jodi was there to assure us that people actually want to celebrate our marriage and are happy to give a gift that will help us as we embark on this new journey.  Her reassuring words eased my heavy heart and allowed me to switch back to happy Bride-mode!  Stay tuned for a peek at the items we so gratefully receive as we approach our big day!

If you haven’t thought about registering at Borsheims, it’s definitely worth a trip to their gift department! And be sure you meet with Jodi; she helped complete our vision!
