You’re engaged and wedding planning is well underway, but now it’s time to curate your wedding registry. If you’re a couple that wants to support Black-owned businesses, it may feel overwhelming as to where to look for certain brands to add to your registry. Brainstorming your gift wishlist with your partner is one of the more fun parts about wedding planning, but with so many gifts to choose from, it can also be difficult to decide what items you truly need.
Here are some Black-owned brands and products that you should add to your wedding registry.
You can’t go wrong with wine glasses, especially when they come in multiple colors. The popular Estelle Stemware is named after the founder’s grandmother. Whether you’re celebrating as newlyweds or entertaining guests, these wine glasses add a pop of color to your drinks and your home aesthetic.
If cooking and baking is your jam, then you’ll need this 10-piece copper bakeware set from Ayesha Curry to serve everything from casseroles, lasagna, bread, cookies, cake, or peach cobbler in style. A diamond-textured surface helps with enhanced browning and easy food release so that you don’t have to worry about your delicious treats sticking to the pan. The set includes a cake pan, two cookie pans, two round cake pans, a loaf pan, a square cake pan, a cookie pan cooling rack, and a covered muffin pan.
Once you have baked all of your treats, you’ll need a way to display them. The iridescent glass Estelle Cake Stand comes in a variety of colors and is a stylish way to show off your cake baking skills. Couples that like to have a pop of color with a hint of nostalgia on display will love these “jewels for the table.”
For couples that love a home-cooked meal, or just trying out new recipes for a weeknight dinner, this two-piece stainless steel, non-stick skillet from Ayesha Curry will make cooking effortless. The set also includes two silicone handle sleeves to protect you from touching a hot surface.
For the couples that love hosting and entertaining, this Ayesha Curry Cut and Serve board will be your go to surface for cutting, chopping, slicing, and dicing. Go a step further and arrange a charcuterie board presentation, or use it for antipasto. This stylish board is a full inch thick and highlights the natural wood grain.
Cozy up on the couch together with this Jungalow by Justina Blakeney throw, which features a twist on the classic Greek key motif. Couples that don’t like a lot of color and prefer soft neutral tones, will love this to add a boho flair to their couch or bed.
Price: $248.99 - $258.99
Cool off from the day (or heat things up between the sheets) with this MISMATCH four-piece sheet set. Sleeping on the two mulberry silk pillowcases, which are included with the soft cotton sheets, will help you and your partner both reduce fine lines, wrinkles, bed head, and hair breakage, as well as help to retain moisture in your hair and skin.
Price: $99.99 - $119.99
Couples that love to infuse other cultures into their home decor will love this Jungalow by Justina Blakeney quilt set. The motif was inspired by a tile pattern that Justina saw at a truck stop in Rajasthan, India. The teal and aqua quilt has a geometric pattern that brings tranquility to the bedroom. The set includes a quilt and two shams.
This gift is also for couples that want a touch of culture-inspired art to add to their home’s aesthetic. This KAZI wall plate will enhance any room, whether you leave the woven plate as a stand-alone piece or add other bowls and plates for a complete experience. The design was created by a woman in rural Rwanda with a hand-stitched loop on the back, so that it’s easy to hang on the wall.
As working from home becomes the norm, many couples are having to share spaces or create their own nooks. This colorful Chassie standing desk can hold up to 130 pounds, and both raises and lowers with the touch of a button.
