When it comes to adding items to your wedding registry, it’s easy to fixate on the kitchen. We see it all the time. It starts with a stand mixer and ends with a registry full of enough barware and place settings to host dinner for 10 every night of the week. That’s not to say skip out on registering for kitchen items—definitely add those items—but we recommend spreading the wealth across your living space, too. Namely: your bedroom.
You spend one-third of your life in there so skip mixing and matching items from each of your bedroom sets and freshen it up a bit. From fancy bed throws to luxurious, imported cotton pillowcases, here are some of the items you might forget to register for when it comes to your bedroom—but shouldn’t.
One of the simplest ways to dress up a modestly designed bedroom is to add cotton canvas decorative pillows. They add the slightest hints of color and contrast and can make for a comfortable headrest while doing a little Netflix and chilling before bed.
We love these cotton decorative pillows from Highline Bedding Co. Crewel embroidery in chic neutral shades fit with any bedroom set and add the right amount of pop.
Throws add layers, texture, and color to any bedspread—plus they serve as a warm blanket when you’re in the mood to cuddle mid-day and don’t want to mess up a nicely made bed.
Add some texture to your space with the Cirrus Supersoft Organic Cotton Throw. It’s brushed for extra softness and thanks to its woven organic cotton base, it’s the perfect weight for all seasons.
During the hotter months of the year, you don't need your down comforter or heavy blanket. You probably want to cover up with more than just a set of sheets, though. That’s where a quilt comes in handy—it’s light, breathable, and many are reversible.
This linen version from Parachute brings an effortless vibe to any space. The garment is pre-washed for that lived-in feel we’re all looking for and is perfect for layering throughout the year. This is not your grandmother’s quilt.
Turn your bedroom into a hotel-inspired sanctuary that you want to spend time in for more than just sleep. Your wedding registry is the perfect opportunity to add a big-ticket item like a duvet set that comes with a cover and 2 shams for your pillows.
The Parachute Edged Linen 3-Piece Duvet Set is like the perfect white t-shirt for your bedroom. The set comes in four gorgeous neutral shades and is lightweight, breathable, and ready to keep you comfortable and cozy every night.
Bed sheets are one of those bedroom items that you can always use more of—unless you feel like doing laundry once a week at minimum. It’s recommended that you change your sheets that amount of time at the very least, so you can always use an extra set (or three).
Splurge on a super-soft set like this one from Alma By Sferra. Lean into these Italian sheets and feel your body relax after a long day.
While you’re at it, don’t miss the chance to upgrade your pillows, which very well may have followed you since your college days. (No judgment, but also maybe a little.) Kick off your marriage with some premium microfiber-filled pillows that are soft and breathable to score you a good night’s rest.
You need down pillows, we’ll just come out and say it. Add a few of these Hello Basics Bell Down Alternative Pillow to your registry and live the comfort-filled life you deserve. The double needle edging on these prevents the filling from shifting. So, say goodbye to lumpy pillows for good.
Chances are, your mattress is comfortable enough on its own, but why not make it even more comfortable by topping it with a mattress pad filled with European white down clad with a luxurious 100% cotton cover? Another perk of a mattress pad—it helps protect your actual mattress from stains and topical wear and tear. We love this one from Downtown Company. It’s simple but we’re sure you’ll be surprised by how much it upgrades your sleeping experience.
One way to make sure your bedroom feels like a true safe haven is to rid it of allergens and pollutants. A quality air purifier can do just that—and a high-tech one like the Dyson Pure Cool Air Purifier can sync to your phone via the Dyson Link app and let you control the purifier even when you’re not home.
Your bedroom is a place of rejuvenation and relaxation. Make the most of it and add these items (and others!) to your wedding registry.
