Bridal Registry with a Personal Touch

By Lee Merrill

he wedding date is set. You said “yes” to the dress, the cake, the flowers, and all the special touches to make your wedding day magical. But what about the life that comes after? What about the home you’ll make with the love of your life? For more than 75 years, Lewis Gifts has been there for brides as they choose special pieces to make their house a home.

Catherine Hobbs, owner of Lewis Gifts, takes pride in the full-service bridal registry available to brides both on-site and online. “At Lewis Gifts, we love to create relationships with our brides and fulfill their every need both before and after the wedding.” Brides are encouraged to stop by the shop to preview all Lewis Gifts has to offer and to brainstorm what types of gifts they may want to add to their registries.

After a casual wander around the Youree Drive location, schedule an appointment with one of the helpful bridal consultants. Vera and Erin are gifted at bringing a bride’s ideas to life. Sitting around the table, they take each client on a playful adventure with different china patterns, flatware, crystal, and table linens to create a table that suits the bride’s unique style and practical needs. Once the registry is complete, brides can include the online link on Zola or The Knot to keep their wedding details in one place.

Today’s brides tend to prefer a mix-and-match style rather than the standard five-piece place setting. The experts at Lewis Gifts know just what pieces pair well together. Some brides like to bring in their grandmother’s china as inspiration. Imagine Grandma’s delight to see her heirloom pieces at a place of honor on the table with modern pieces adding a stylish touch. The boutique offers popular patterns from American-made Pickard, Vietri from Italy, and Juliska and Skyros from Portugal, just to name a few.

While Lewis Gifts provides the widest selection of china and crystal in the area, they offer much more. Brides can choose luxury bedding from Bella Notte, stunning home decor from Pamela Sack, serving pieces from Beatriz Ball and more. Loved ones can shop in-store or order online. Each morning, Vera fulfills online orders with the personal touch she perfected over 25 years of service at Lewis Gifts. Gift wrapping and shipping are available. Many loved ones choose to select items from their bride’s registry, but gift cards are available for those who can’t decide. After the wedding, brides can use their registry credits to purchase the items they still need.

In this Amazon age, consider shopping local at Lewis Gifts for your bridal registry and gift-giving needs. The personal touch always reigns supreme.
