If you’re newly engaged, you’re definitely going to want to consider registering at Macy’s. Chad and I registered there when we were engaged because it was so easy for all our guests….we were able to find a lot of stuff in our modern style, which was a big plus. Now a few years later, and I see even more great brands popping up on their site like Kate Spade, Jonathan Adler, and my perennial favorite, Martha Stewart. They’re pretty much your one-stop shop for everything you’ll need to set up house from the kitchen to the bedroom and everywhere in between, with the added bonus of getting 5% back from every gift you receive! Yeah, you read that right….when someone buys you a gift off your registry, you get 5% of the price back in your Star Rewards program. Better yet, when YOU spend at Macy’s, you get 10% back in your account*! Can’t beat that!
As a special treat, we’re giving away a $150 giftcard to 1 lucky winner! Leave a comment below with a link to your fav Macy’s registry product for a chance to win…the winner will be announced on Friday! Good luck!
*when enrolling in Macy’s Registry Star program. Not valid on any beauty/fragrance purchase. Nor do you get 10% back from furniture if it’s self-purchased. So while you cannot register for furniture at Macy’s, you can use your rewards gift card to purchase that sofa or rug of your dreams.

I was having a discussion with a couple of ladies about bridal registries the other day, and it dawned on me that there are so many new options these days for wedding registries that defy “tradition”. As couples are waiting longer to get married and testing the waters by living together first, in most cases their houses are practically set up so there’s no need for additional plates, cups etc. Rather, being able to register for experiences or your honeymoon is becoming increasingly popular, and thats where Traveler’s Joy can come in. They’ve made it super easy to register for fun things like breakfast in bed, bungee jumping, island excursions, pretty much anything you can do on your honeymoon, you can register for! How nice to not have to worry about expenses while you’re enjoying some alone time with your sweetie! You can also add on items like maps, cameras, and luggage, and for higher priced items, the cost can be split up amongst guests so no one’s on the hook for the $1000 Louis Vuitton makeup case you’ve been eyeing. If you’re stumped for ideas of what to register for, you can use their Instant Registry feature, or check out other Traveler’s Joy user registries to see what they’re getting.
Now you’ve got no excuse to not sign up!

Mention the flavor”mint”, and I’m all over it…which is why I was instantly drawn to these vanilla mint hot chocolate sticks from Ticket Kitchen. There are a bunch of yummy flavors and they’d make adorable wedding favors or as part of a hot chocolate bar for a winter wedding, and I love how you can get customized spoons made for them with messages like “Marry Me” or “I Love You”.
