abc carpet & home

One thing nobody tells you before you get engaged is that the minute it happens, you’re supposed to have it all figured out.  Starting approximately five minutes after Evan proposed, we start getting calls about whether we had set a date, registered, or made any plans.  In my mind, I didn’t know I was getting married until five minutes ago – so who was supposed to be making these plans?

Now that our engagement party is coming up, despite that fact that we’ve requested no gifts on the invitation we’re still being asked where we’ve registered.  It’s tough because Evan and I have been living together for a while already and we really don’t need much.  I’ve been looking into registering at places where we can find cool, creative things that we don’t necessarily need but would love to own nonetheless.  Perusing the ABC carpet & home site, there was no shortage of visual eye candy and next time in in NYC I’ll definitely have to scope out their registry options.  Does any one out there have any other creative ideas? We’re also thinking about Jonathan Adler

In the meantime, enjoy a few pieces I’m currently lusting after from ABC. Gorgeous, no?

    You should register at ABC carpet of course! and Bergdorf’s!! I think you need to go to the store to register (may not have online)….but its worth the trip. So many beautiful and varied things there. I like your roundup

    Girl, this post looks amazing. I love the layout. I remember people asking us where we were registered right away. It is bizarre. Just enjoy being engaged. I can’t wait to hear about the engagement party. Over our long engagement we found thing we needed, despite having lived together for five years. Have fun with it! xo

    I know exactly what you mean! We’ve been engaged almost 3 years now, getting married next year, and still haven’t prepared anything! Eek!

    I love ABC! The only problem with their ‘registry’ options when I had looked into it about a year ago is that it’s only in stores. A good option for creating your own registry is ‘my registry.’
