The Coolest Geode Finds to Add to Your Wedding Registry

The hottest registry decor this season are gifts that incorporate geodes, crystals, and natural minerals. These items are colorful, fun, and add a more organic feel to any home. Geodes in particular are very popular, because they are durable and can stand up to wear and tear, even though they look quite delicate and fragile. Adding in a jewel toned color, or a natural element, provides balance among other more modern, stark pieces and will make your newlywed home pop long after the honeymoon!

How Your Registry Can Influence Your Wedding Style

Photo by Nina & Wes Photography Your wedding day is an opportunity to showcase your taste as a couple. This means translating your personal style into all aspects of wedding planning – from the invitations and floral arrangements to the registry.
