Over on Offbeat Home, we have a section devoting to re-purposing your wedding decor as home goods. But let's talk about repurposing home decor at a wedding! Do you have a registry? Think about adding things to your home registry that can pull double-duty at your wedding.
I recently moved, and have been buying things like curtains and rugs for the new space, and was thinking “holy shit, these would also be cool to use at a wedding.” So, inspired by my recent purchases, here are some things you could add to your registry (Amazon registries FTW!) and then I hope to see some of these things at your weddings…
Use a wall-hanging, or curtains, as the backdrop to your wedding ceremony, and then hang them in your home afterwards.
Use a rug for your ceremony, and then use it in your home forever afterwards!
Got long tables at your reception? Register for awesome table runners and then use them on your dining table at home for every day decor, or break them out for Thanksgiving dinner every year.
I'm having a real moment with Turkish Towels lately — I use them as hand towels in the bathroom and dish towels in the kitchen, and am thinking of using the bigger ones for bath towels/picnic blankets. Register for these hand towels and use them as napkins on your reception tables first…
Register for things like candles, and candy bowls, and votives, and then use them all for your reception decor.
Or register for jewelry dishes, and use them as your ring pillow-alternative.
Ready to add these things to YOUR registry?
Not everything on this page came from Amazon, but they can all be added to your Amazon wedding registry with their universal registry option! (If you don't have one yet, you should set up one — it's super easy for everyone to use.)
