Wedding registries have come a long way. Gone are the days when fine china, delicate linens, and other building blocks of the newlyweds’ first home dominated the list. Today it’s more of a free-for-all featuring splurges, wants, donations, and various types of funds, each tailor-made to a couple’s present stage in life. But here’s a novel idea: Instead of playing the long game by opting for items for the unforeseeable future, why not treat yourself to a little instant gratification? We’re talking about your honeymoon.
Once you’ve settled on your destination, allow your wedding registry to serve as the ultimate checklist, chock-full of functional and design-forward picks geared toward the adventure that awaits. To help you get started, we compiled a short list of thematic finds from Amazon’s Wedding Registry, each with an inspired locale in mind.
If You’re Seeking Fun in the Sun: Go to Capri
Your idea of a perfect getaway involves plenty of R&R, preferably poolside or at a fancy beach club. Soak up every ounce of the iconic Amalfi Coast by doubling down on vibrant beach accessories, chic swimwear, and a really good read.
If You’re Seeking a Color-Fueled Adventure: Go to Jaipur
You’ll spend your days basking in the palatial glory of the Pink City, leaving no stone unturned. Fill a cute duffel bag with some staples—a reusable water bottle, refreshing facial mist, and a pocket camera—and throw in a wrap, a pair of slides, and a frilly envelope clutch for a quick change.
If You’re Seeking Great Food and City Sights: Go to Copenhagen
You’re at your happiest in the midst of a bustling city with an equally vibrant design scene—meet Copenhagen. Revel in its world-famous restaurants, peruse the shopping district, and check out the equally notable art galleries. Rain favors Scandinavia, so plan for it with a transparent coverall that will still do justice to your outfits.
If You’re Seeking a Wild Time: Go to Cape Town
Safaris, wine tastings, and an expansive coastline that’s too good for words—South Africa’s capital has it all. Arm yourself with the tools primed for the journey: binoculars, a protective hat, and a handy field guide immediately come to mind.
