11 Major Wedding Registry Trends: Macy’s Registry Series

weddingregistrytrends

For our third post in our Wedding Registry Series with Macy’s, we’re talking about our favorite wedding registry trends of 2016. Whether you are the happy couple-to-be or are gifting the happy couple-to-be, we’ll walk you through the trends you need to know.

1. Home Decor Elements

wedding_registry_trends

Couples are adhering to less strict registry rules than decades of the past. Many already have the basic home essentials, but would prefer some fun items to express their new style as a couple like photo displays or wall decor.

2. Al Fresco Dining Options

With the shift in more casual and outdoor entertaining, high end designers like Kate Spade and Michael Aram are creating chic lines of melamine plastic, eco-friendly and party approved tableware that is both design and budget-friendly. It’s perfect for the couple who loves to entertain.

3. Copper Everything

Whether choosing new pots and pans, a french press or barware, copper is definitely the metallic hue of the moment. We love how it mixes well with a range of other metals for a fresh and eclectic look.

4. Kitchen Space Savers

With all the gadgets, mixers and large serving pieces couples get for their wedding, it isn’t often there is *extra* space in a newlyweds kitchen. These Joseph and Joseph cutting boards and mixing bowl sets are a both stylish and space-saving kitchen solution.

5. Faceted Designs

faceted_home_decor_trends

We’ve been seeing the faceted design trend everywhere, from vases to light fixtures and we can’t get enough. For the on-trend couple, a few home accents in this style is the perfect way to add fresh and functional elements to their happy home.

6. Cast Iron Cookware

wedding_registry_favorites

As far as cast iron cookware, Le Creuset is the gold standard. A french classic, you can braise, simmer or roast almost anything, they have a last-forever quality and the most beautiful range of colors. It’s the perfect way to add a cohesive pop of color that will stand the test of time.

7. Time-Saving Gadgets

wedding_gift_trends

The tech world is exploding with ways to make it easy for couples to keep their home in top shape. Couples are adding time-saving gadgets like the iRobot to their registry to keep their newlywed homes clean as easily as possible.

8. Gold Flatware

gold_flatware_wedding_trends

It’s all about gold flatware for the dining table these days. The modern couple is mixing and matching metals for a less formal but still cohesive look when entertaining.

9. Bar Cart Essentials

The bar cart has made a serious comeback. Bar tools, decanters and assorted style glassware are at the top of many couple’s wish lists.

10. Experience Related Ideas

Many couples are asking for more experience related gifts that they can enjoy together outside the home, like a fun picnic basket, blanket or hammock.

11. Marble Inspired Serveware 

marble_macys_registry

Marble inspired looks aren’t only for fancy countertops anymore. The style is newly trending for serving essentials like cheese boards, cake stands and cutting boards. It’s a less expensive way to add the same chic and clean feel to any budget home.

This post is part of a new, exciting wedding collaboration with Macy’s.
