Registering is yet another daunting task when it comes to planning a wedding. It is essential, however, to guide your guests towards gifts that you will use and cherish. For younger couples with fewer material belongings, a registry is an opportunity to acquire special pieces including china and crystal. Nevertheless, always register for a variety of gifts within a range of prices and, if possible, choose one nationwide retailer with various locations.
These days it is also practical to complement your primary registry with smaller ones that reflect your hobbies – cooking, wine, gardening, sports – or that contribute to elements of your honeymoon. The registry should reflect your tastes, so that guests purchase gifts that are “you”. -XO, Vera

Dress Diary: Kassia
Kassia is bold and hip. It has a very rich, textured look in the front, with so many layers happening and artistic decisions at work. The end result is harmonious, but there are also imbalances and asymmetries – even chaos.
The strapless gown has a hand-draped “V” pattern of French tulle, which is the main visual focus in the bodice. This drape defines the waist, and makes for a very light, airy dress: it's soft around the hip where it's nipped in, and then it flares out, again very soft. The structure of the A-line skirt is also very light – it's basically just a cage of horsehair over tulle – so it flatters and conceals many different body types. It's built up from so many individual elements, like a wild pattern of tissue organza around the hip, that seem almost uncontrolled and free-wheeling. The details...READ MORE
