Good morning my loves!! Last September G and I tied the knot but being that I was very preggo, we decided to hold off on our dream wedding until after the baby was here! Getting so excited as we start to plan our big day!
Some of you may already know, we’re planning our wedding in Hawaii this September! Hawaii is a tropical paradise for many, but for me it’s my second home. Most of my family lives in Oahu, Hawaii, and I grew up visiting the island every year. It’s also where G and I fell in love. ♥ This past year, G and I traveled the world together, but it was always non-stop work, late nights, and deadlines..not exactly the ideal vacations we dreamt about! Hawaii was always a place where we could unwind and feel at peace, with my family, celebrating the holidays and being together. It holds a special place in my heart and that’s one of the main reasons why we choose to have our wedding there! I can’t wait to share more of my wedding plans with you guys along the way, but for now we’re still in the beginning stages.
One of the main things we wanted to do after the New Year was our gift registry! Building a wedding registry can be really fun and exciting, but also difficult when it comes to choosing all the items you think you might need and will use for years to come. After researching and browsing several retailers, we really loved Macy’s Wedding Registry Program and more importantly, it felt most like us! What I loved about Macy’s Wedding Registry is that it’s a one-stop-wedding-shop for everything you need. They have a huge selection of everything from home decor, outfits for wedding-related occasions, his & hers robes, kitchen necessities, bedding, and the list goes on. Since we’re planning to move into our new house in the next couple months, we’ve been loading our registry up with all the household necessities we’ll need. Another reason why we chose to register with Macy’s is because they offer a newlywed discount of 20% off most remaining registry items for 6 months after the wedding, plus 10% off furniture and mattresses! So if we don’t receive all the items on our registry, we can wait to see if we really need those remaining items and purchase them ourselves with this completion discount.
Right now you have a chance to win $10,000 in cash to use towards planning your dream wedding!! All you have to do is enter the Macy’s Wedding Registry Sweepstakes $10K for Your Big Day and start a Macy’s registry with a minimum value of $500 (no purchase necessary). Make sure to register by January 31, 2018, 11:59 pm Eastern Time, for a chance to win this incredible cash prize!
Once we move into our new home, we’ll be doing tons of entertaining! We can’t wait to have our friends and family over for dinner parties, occasions and Thanksgiving, but we definitely needed to upgrade our dinnerware. I fell in love with this Library Lane Navy Collection by Kate Spade New York. This set is elegant, classic and I love that the pops of color make it feel a bit more fun and playful than the neutral dinnerware we are currently using.
Also love this luxurious and sleek 5-Pc. Malmo Gold Place Setting by Kate Spade New York! Can’t wait to use these for our first dinner party in our new home!
And how cute is this Gold Moscow Mule Mug Set by the Martha Steward Collection?! G and I love a good Moscow mule, but with a newborn on our hands.. we decided to opt for hot chocolate this time!
Once we move into our new home, we’ll be needing a lot more bedding items for our master and guest bedroom. I love these decorative pillows by the Hotel Collection because they are made with silky fabrics and feature subtle embroidery that make them the perfect addition to any bed. When it comes to bedding, I like to use different sized pillows to add dimension and balance to my bed. The first decorative pillow by Hotel collection is a Woven Texture 18″ Square Pillow, layered over the Keystone 14″ x 24″ Decorative Pillow, also by Hotel Collection.
My favorite decorative accent is this Marble Coaster Set by Hotel Collection, exclusively created for Macy’s! You guys know I’m obsessed with anything marble..so I knew I had to have these when I first saw them. I can’t wait to show you guys the marble features we have in our new home, I’m beyond obsessed!
And there you have it! Building our registry is getting me so excited for all that’s coming and I can’t wait to share more of this process with all of you. Hope you get a chance to enter the sweepstakes, and if you’re not on the road to wedding bells just yet, be sure to tell your engaged friends about it! Trust me, they will thank you later :)
A special thanks to Macy’s and ShopStyle for partnering with me on this post.
