First let us say that we’re not above heart-shaped bowls or a sprinkling of sweet items that say “love” in pretty script. We’re in the business of love—it comes with the territory. That said, there are tons of subtle ways you can infuse love into your wedding registry that won’t make you (or your guests) want to gag. Here are a few of our favorites.
1. Everything Grows with Love by Workman Publishing
