Brides often forget to add a few essential items with smaller price tags to their registry lists, but including these items is a courtesy to the guests who have already contributed a lot to your wedding (hello Maids of Honor and in-laws!), or younger family members who don’t want to add their names to their parents’ gifts. I was reminded of this when I made my semi-routine visit to Williams-Sonoma a few weeks ago.
When it’s time for me to get married, Williams-Sonoma will be a registry must. I love cooking, prettifying my home, and, frankly, I love the little luxuries that I may not need but almost always make my day brighter, like lady bugs and bees made of dark chocolate.
During my visit I discovered their new Pure and Green Collection: A batch of soaps, lotions and cleaners made with essential oils and natural cleansing ingredients that don’t hurt the environment. I fell for the Ruby Grapefruit Ylang Ylang scent, and opted for the room spray and self-foaming hand soap. After two weeks, I must say these products are as effective as they are gentle, and the fragrances are truly natural, as promised.
When you’re wrapped up in the pre-wedding planning frenzy, it might be hard to remember to include these simple indulgences for your new home. But trust me: as you use the products after a stressful day, you may find more joy out of them than that crock pot you still haven’t touched.
