Wedding Planning Bed and Bath Gift Registry

Bridal registry is one of the highlights of your upcoming wedding. It makes it very easy for your guests to know what you really want. Register for all price points so people can gift you for all your parties- from your engagement to your wedding day.

Your home is your castle and the bed and bath area is one that is of utmost importance.  Comfort from the busy world should be a priority and an escape  from the pressures of a busy life.  Pamper yourself and ensure a relaxing atmosphere and a soothing escape from the pressures of everyday life.

Your master bedroom should be comfortable for sleeping and attractive and calming to look at. Part of the luxury is the quality of the materials you have to choose from. Percale, a fine combed cotton yarn is woven  about 180 to 220 threads per square inch. Percale sheets are light in weight, durable and more expensive than the lowest grade, which is muslin, which is made with thicker yarn with 128 to 140 threads per square inch. Muslin is rarely seen in the 21st century for obvious reasons.

Seek out the higher thread count and cotton for comfort. The more cotton content ( it does go to over 400 threads per square inch or more), is softer, smoother and can serve you for many years to come.

A starter set for the master bedroom should include three sets of bed linen. Duvets are popular for their warmth and the lightness they deliver. For blankets, it is recommended you begin with two winter blankets, two summer coverlets and one spread or comforter. Duvet covers, pillow shams, dust ruffle and neck rolls, all provide the luxurious extras. And, don’t forget about the guest bath and bedroom, where you’ll want to pamper any company that may visit.

Linens today are beautiful with a multitude of choices available.  With the change of the bed, the entire decor of the room will change, whatever the season.

For the bath, a starter set includes three towel sets. Oversize bath sheets, bath, hand and guest towels, a bath mat set, shower curtain and accessories;  including soap dish, tooth brush holder, wastebasket and laundry hamper, complete the bathroom ensemble.

While today’s choices offer an infinite variety of selection, surveys indicate that many first time consumers are looking for quality that will last for many years to come; permanent press sheets for ironing, and colour fast linens, so sheets don’t bleed or fade in the wash. Treat them well and they can last for over 10 years.

It is a fact that the more you spend on bedding and bath items, the longer they will serve you, and won’t require replacing.

Remember to register for your all your bath and bed needs. Your guests will be delighted to know they are purchasing the items you have chosen and all the colours, sizes and accents will coordinate.
