Gifting and Giving – Personalize your Registry!
A Bridal registry is an important part to any wedding. I know, I know, that a registry is not part of the ceremony, the reception, the food, the drink, the dress fitting, the flowers, or the Honeymoon. However, your family and friends want to give you a gift celebrating your new lives together. A registry is very important to them.
Depending upon your age at the time of your wedding the needs are completely different. Keep that in mind and make sure that your registry best reflects what you want to receive. Remember, registering is not selfish. It is a gift that you give to your gift-givers.
Boutique Gift Store Registries are a new and up and coming trend. Typically these are stand-alone gift shops that provide gifts but also one on one personal service with your selections and will also offer you an entirely different selection of gifts from which to choose than the Big Box Retailers. Find your favorite local gift store and go from ‘must have’ to ‘really would love to have’…you will be so glad you did and so will your guests that feel more comfortable in a smaller setting with an associate readily available to offer assistance as needed.
Here are just a few examples of items that are offered for your registry at a Boutique Gift Store:
This gorgeous H. Shadron hand-painted bowl is made by a southern artist who now resides in St. Simons. You may select your bowl size and color. Heather will carve yours and your husband’s names and wedding date into this lovely bowl. It is food safe, decorative, and truly unique.

How much time did you spend finding the perfect wedding invitation? Have one to save forever by having it engraved into this special square plate. It can be hung on a wall, placed in a plate stand or put on a coffee table. Your invitation means a lot to family and friends. This invitation will mean more to you as the years go by.

This glass bowl is hand-blown by Simon Pearce in Vermont. The lovely etched-edged signature bowl is stunning. Again capturing your names and wedding date, this lovely bowl is a timeless piece to share in your new life with family and friends.

Do you love to entertain? Do you want something a little more sophisticated to show off your new abode after the honeymoon? Select from this gorgeous line of barware from Julia Knight. There are many colors and styles from which to choose. This unique designer serveware is one of a kind and will be a true conversation starter for years to come.

Your registry is really gifts to you and a gift to your gift-givers. They want to make sure that you receive what you really would like to have. A boutique store registry will make everyone happy.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

People We Love- Volume 4- Lofty Pearls

Meet and Greet with Lofty Pearls

By: Danielle Wasserman

Holy Bananas! Have you been to Lofty Pearls yet? Saturday December 12
th I was introduced to the Lofty Pearls Fine Linens & Gifts shop. Joyce, the owner was a pleasure to meet with: extremely down to earth and very knowledgeable of the gifts she sells. When I first learned of Loft Pearls, I didn’t realize the full meaning of the title of her store; it stands for “stretching to reach something ordinary and beautiful.” Her beautiful items are picked with care from Europe. She was emphasizing the quality of European items versus your traditional items from stores like Bed Bath & Beyond

The bridal gift which stood out the most was the Fiesole by Ginori dinnerware, these were to die for. This beautiful tableware is trimmed with 14 karat gold with the option of embedding the bride’s family crest, their home, or anything that resembles their family tradition.

Some other amazing gifts available are Italian linens and beautiful Halo Flutes, which are trimmed with a 18 karat gold design and tastefully packaged in a rich wooden case.

If you are on a smaller budget, Joyce hand monograms beautiful handkerchiefs, bath linens, and robes. Joyce really goes the extra mile to personalize client’s gifts. Based on the bride’s personality, this will determine what font and design she will choose for the monogram.

Lofty Pearls is the store you want to bring your mother or mother-in-law to when creating your registry. Trust me Joyce’s items are more than your typical cookie cutter items; these souvenirs are heirloom quality that your mother would totally appreciate.

So say you need a gift for a friend getting married. Your first thought is that you don’t want to go to the same “Box Store” that every other bride is registered at because you think she deserves better. Well, you’re in luck because Joyce agrees. She never wants a bride to have the same gift as another bride. To make this happen, Joyce investigates the bride’s registry from other stores to get inspiration of the bride’s taste of merchandise. When you are shopping from your friend’s registry here you’ll leave knowing that your friend will be receiving an original beautiful gift that cannot be replicated.

The process for a bride to get registered at Lofty Pearls is quite simple. The whole registration process can be done online at The first step is to register as a New Member to Lofty Pearls. This step will create a customized profile for Lofty Pearls to get to know the bride’s wants and needs. The site is very user friendly and Joyce is only a phone call away to answer any questions and or concerns. I know everyone these days is into the convenience of hopping on your computer and getting what your need with one click. But, don’t sell yourself short by not visiting the store in person to touch and feel at will.
