When my husband and I got married almost four years ago, we didn’t register for much. We had already lived together for a few years and we were in our 30s, so we had a pretty decent stock of essentials. It wasn’t like we were fresh out of college and looking to replace hand-me-down pots and pans. We also lived in a small New York City apartment and I couldn’t imagine ever needing any more stuff.
Together, we made the executive decision to skip the formal dinnerware and instead asked our families for a set of everyday whites from Crate & Barrel. (Just registering for the plates, bowls, and serving platter. I felt very strongly about keeping the mismatched mugs we already had!)
