Season’s Greetings, NewlyWishers!
Over the past couple of months, we’ve really enjoyed sharing our Registry Style Profiles: Classic, Modern, Preppy, Retro, Eclectic & Green. We’re so proud to have taken our collection of more than 50 chic and unique boutiques and brands to create these six style-driven registry categories so that you can simply choose the style that you connect with and find a carefully curated selection of products for your registry, as well as wedding day accessories and bridal party gifts. These profiles are our way of helping you create a gift registry that reflects YOUR personal style while making the entire registry process easy, and of course, FUN!
Here’s a glance at all styles in one glance. Check them out and before you hop, be sure to enter into our $200 Holiday Giveaway simply by telling us which ones are your faves!

Classic homes are always sophisticated and elegant, but who wants to live in a museum? Today’s classic couple embraces traditional elegance but ditches the white gloves. By thoughtfully weaving together the old and the new, you can easily create a home that is both refined and relaxed.

Modern home design maximizes open spaces and embraces sleek lines with natural textures. This style includes pieces with playful pops of color that warm up a space. Many of today’s most modern designs are inspired by the art-deco period: geometric shapes and the understated design of the era.

Preppy homes are inspired by the interiors of private school lounges, hunting lodges and country clubs. The formula is simple: combine classic forms, like Chesterfield Sofas and club chairs, with traditional patterns, like plaids and ginghams, with a palette of navy and white and pops of vibrant pink, lime or yellow. Use this collection to turn your house into a colorful, charming home and let weekends in the Hamptons, gin & tonics at the club, class rings, canvas totes and monograms inspire you!

A retro home could take design cues from almost anytime in the past. No matter which era inspires you, chances are you have a relaxed, playful home that buzzes with vibrant colors and clever accents.

The eclectic home tells a story of a playful, vibrant couple. Update this look by mixing and matching pieces from your life and travels with new pieces inspired by global culture. Mix and match pieces without the notion of chaos, but rather a harmonious style with each piece having a unique place and thoughtful connection to other parts of the room.

Eco-friendly comes in many shapes and sizes, from ‘energy star’ appliances, to items made from sustainable materials like bamboo, to manufacturing process that rely on wind power or solar energy. Whichever way you go, you’ll see that you don’t have to sacrifice style or quality, or pay more to crate a registry that helps you tread lightly on the earth.
