First Ever Wine and Spirits Wedding Registry? No, You're Not Dreaming Anymore!

In recent years, studies have shown that more and more couples are getting married later in life. A lot of the time this is because the couple has been dating and living together for years already, so the actual marriage comes a little later. If this is the case for you, you probably have already stocked up on basic bakeware and cookware; and you probably have enough silverware. So, the big question is, "What do you need that can be put on your gift registry?" Well, ThirstyNest is here to answer that question for you! Founder, Jacqueline Strum says, "Home entertaining is an exciting part of a new marriage, with other traditional registries giving couples the option for selecting everything except what they will actually serve.  With several simple “1-Click Registry” collections, from Mixologist Must-Haves to Wine Bar 101, ThirstyNest guides couples on how to create the perfectly appointed home bar for stylish entertaining in one mouse tap. Registrants may also select individual wine and spirits or add unique items from drinkware to bar carts to their registry." As if you're not sold already, they partnered with Wine Enthusiast, so you know you're only getting the best products out there!

 

Saving the planet with your Sierra Club wedding registry!

Sure getting lots of cool wedding presents feels great, but we can all agree that clean air, sparkling rivers, and renewable energy are always worth more than anything that comes in a box. That's why so many planet-loving wedding couples are donating to ecological causes via wedding gift registries to support the Sierra Club in lieu of, or in addition to, traditional gifts. Create a personal Team Sierra page on their site and ask for gifts to the planet as a way to care for Mother Earth with your wedding.  Future generations will thank you!
