As a 28-year-old living in New York City, a good chunk of my friends are single (myself included), but others are starting to get married, making this summer my first wedding season. I’ve been officially introduced to the ever-daunting wedding registry. Clicking through their selections has surprisingly taught me things about my friends that I didn’t know. It’s a state of the union for their tastes; a glimpse into their dream futures. So call me delusional or call me a very good planner, but I’ve taken it upon myself to create a rough version of my own. After all, as Domino’s style editor, I do curate gift guides for a living.

On Board

A wedding registry is your chance to ask for those hyper-specific, sometimes over-the-top items you’ve always wanted that don’t fall under the birthday budget. Some of the best additions I’ve seen: Billy Cotton goblets, scalloped dinnerware from RW Guild, and Michaël Verheyden’s walnut bowl. Read on for the things I’m bookmarking for my future self. And if you’re reading this as a newlywed-to-be, maybe you’ll find something here you love enough to add to your registry. 

These nine pieces are wedding registry goals:

  1. I know the single ladies with 27 other weddings on the calendar would appreciate a $39 option in the mix. As far as I’m concerned, this tart slicer is just as covetable as Royal Copenhagen dinnerware. 
  2. My parents were gifted an Elsa Peretti bowl for their wedding 33 years ago, and out of all their presents, it’s one of the few they still own. The delicate thumbprint is a meditation for the eyes. 
  3. Not only is this the best-looking kettle I’ve ever seen, but the conical shape makes water boil faster. 
  4. If you haven’t browsed Domino’s new collaboration with Heather Taylor Home, stop everything you’re doing. Of the four just-introduced colorways, I’d be most excited to receive the tomato and blue.
  5. Spanish mohair brand Mantas Ezcaray makes the prettiest throws, and this tonal striped one reminds me of Loewe but is a fraction of the price. 
  6. These new cocktail glasses are the perfect combo of cute and chic. Designed with a Mexican chef and made by hand in Italy, they’ll have traveled the world and back before ending up on my table. 
  7. I love the rustic, vintage feel of this pewter flatware by Mepra. These would look as good thrown in a tumbler for a casual picnic lunch as they would at a set dinner table. 
  8. I’m a big believer in Splatterware (who wouldn’t love a Puglia-meets-Vermont vibe), and this combo of butter yellow and forest green is really doing it for me. Even though it’s technically a pitcher, I’d use it for fresh flowers cut from the garden of my future country house. 
  9. I don’t know that anyone would actually buy a hand-painted Royal Copenhagen dinnerware set for me, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
