Best Barware – Registry 101

comments 2

You’re already known for your great taste in wine and extensive repertoire of cocktails, so why not have the best barware in town, too? Your wedding registry is the perfect reason to freshen up your selection of cups, glasses, tumblers and all things “party” because this year, you have tons to celebrate.

Let’s do it. What do I need? 

We’ll start with the basics. Wine (red and white), beer, champagne, and cocktail glasses are all first steps to getting your collection started. And please, get rid of those lingering red plastic cups.

How many of each do I get? 

If you’re thinking 8-12, you’re almost right. We suggest adding a few more for insurance purposes. Accidents happen (especially when drinks are involved) so to be sure to you can always keep a full set around the house, we err on the side of caution and always add some more.

That seems like a lot!

Don’t we know it. It takes first-timers a bit to get used to ordering in bulk like this, especially since most of us are living in cramped starter homes and apartments. So think of it this way: registering for your wedding is such a unique opportunity and for most people it’s a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, so make the most of it. If it helps, we offer controlled shipping so you can receive all your packages at once (instead of red wine glasses today, white wine glasses tomorrow, shot glasses the day after that). Remember, your wedding registry is intended to be everything you need for the rest of your life so to that, let’s raise a glass!

Anything else? 

Depending on your tastes, you can always add in some accessories, shot glasses, fancy tumblers and specialty glasses. Click here for a comprehensive list of the best barware and scroll for some of our favorite pieces.
