NewlyWish- A creative registry + a giveaway!

Categories   Giveaway + Contest, Sponsored Post, Vendor Spotlight

Creating a registry is, if you ask us, one of the most fun parts of planning your wedding. Not to be greedy or anything, but it’s pretty awesome to fully outfit your kitchen and home in one fell swoop. But it’s so hard figuring out where to register, especially if you’re looking for something different than the big box stores.

Enter NewlyWish! NewlyWish provides couples with their carefully curated collection of unique shops and the finest brands for kitchen, tabletop, bed & bath, and home décor, plus less traditional items such as artwork, food and wine, and tickets to cultural and sporting events. Which means you get to create a registry that truly reflects your personal style. It’s so awesome.

{Shown above clockwise from top left: newlywed cooking class, Colorware Collection dinnerware, Dwell Studio coasters, Mud Australia dinnerware, Libeco vintage linens, a pretty travel map print, and a museum membership.}

Their site is pretty and super easy to use. It makes creating your registry fun and easy, plus your guests will have no problem shopping your unique registry items in one place.

Even better, NewlyWish goes beyond the registry to include unique and thoughtful wedding party gifts, favors, and welcome bags so you can share the love with all of your family and friends. And after the wedding? NewlyWish extends a 10% discount to all items left on the registry, personalized URL and announcement cards for sharing your registry, as well as a variety of exclusive offers and discounts from their partners for everything from lingerie to invitations.

And now the fun part. To celebrate spring, they’re offering one lucky couple a $150 certificate towards anything on their site! To enter, simply leave a comment with your favorite item from the NewlyWish site (please also include a link to that product). The winner will be chosen on April 22nd. That’s two weeks to enter! But you might as well do it now.

And if you’re the kind of couple who prefers a unique registry option, see what NewlyWish has for you.

This is AHMAZZING. I never thought to register for experiences, but how cool! Fingers crossed that we get one of these

Gwen on Apr 9, 2011

What a perfect blend of items for our registry. I like that they have dance & cooking classes! Great to have more than just tangible items for a registry. But, I am in love with the Shun knife set! Best knives around and gorgeous to boot!

Kamie on Apr 9, 2011

O my I love it! I really love the cooking class how fun would that be?

Mary C on Apr 9, 2011

Wow! This site is really unique, I love it! It's hard to narrow down my choices for top picks from the site, but Hollywood Glamour bed stood out in my mind! Currently, we don't have a bed for our future home, and this bed exemplifies our style perfectly!

Elizabeth on Apr 9, 2011

what a cool service!

Diziet on Apr 9, 2011

Wedding registries, purveyors of stand mixers since 1865 :) (I want one)

mandy gross on Apr 9, 2011

I am in love with these mugs!

Rhian Stotts on Apr 9, 2011

We would probably use it towards wedding party gifts. For example, I love the Harlem Vintage Bamboo Corkscrew and Bottle Stopper Gift Collection and it would be great for the groomsmen.

Katharine on Apr 9, 2011

My fiance and I live in a great loft apartment and being in our late twenties are pretty set up in the kitchen/bed/bath department…enter newlywish. Their site is genius, especially for couples like us who are already pretty well stalked and would rather receive gifts to help pull all the odds and ends together. For example we have GIANT bare white walls that are screaming for some beautiful artwork like this piece: We will definitely be registering with this site!

Cheryl on Apr 9, 2011

Cool site! I would love the All-Clad Stainless Nonstick Skillet 10 in. : Thanks!

Caitlynn on Apr 9, 2011

I jsut love the, Viking Stand Mixer Thanks for the Give Aways!! :) Blessings.

Jodi on Apr 9, 2011

Jasmine on Apr 9, 2011

Very cool. I hadn't noticed the dance lessons for preparing for the first dance. Would love to have a energetic and beautiful first dance rather than swaying.

shiori on Apr 9, 2011

I can't decide. It's either the Dwell Studio Draper Stripe in Ash Duvet Set or the Colorware Collection plates and bowls by Fishs Eddy (I can't go into that store without buying something!)

Amy K on Apr 9, 2011

What a great site! Thanks for sharing! And I absolutely love Alpaca :]

Amy M. on Apr 9, 2011

Love the modern and unique kitchen wares, but I'm a sucker for the classic and vintage. You can never go wrong with a good sifter when you love to bake!

Roxanne on Apr 9, 2011

I want the shun knife set desperately?

Erin Nicole on Apr 9, 2011

Amazing idea- love the site! I MUST have this All-Clad saute pan! =)

Katie on Apr 10, 2011

I love the Thomaspaul plates and linnens... such a nice way to change up a table!

Tracy on Apr 10, 2011

I think it is awesome that there is even a way to make you registry your own personal style - I am in love with the photography section, particularly the photo of Lower Manhattan - would look awesome in my living room :).

lindsey on Apr 10, 2011

I lovee the Sagaform Club Hand-blown All-Purpose Glasses! They are so cool and colorful! What a fabulous site :)

Ms. T on Apr 10, 2011

Michelle F. on Apr 10, 2011

I am just beginning to decide where to register and Newlywish is at the top of my list (forreal!!) My fiance and I have all the kitcehn and linen basics covered, so the experience type gifts Newlywish offers are amazing!!

Lauren M on Apr 10, 2011

Love the MUD products - so beautiful.

Nadia Johnson on Apr 10, 2011

I learned about NearlyWish after seeing it advertised when I was taking a Physique 57 class (of which you can add to your registry too), but the item my fiance and I are most excited about is the Custom Wine Library Design How creative and different? Love that.

Christina on Apr 10, 2011

The Cupcakes & Tea Bridal Shower cooking class looks like so much fun!

Hazel on Apr 10, 2011

This is perfect!! I am so exhausted from "things" - we have so many things! The chance for someone to purchase experiences is exactly what I have been looking for. My best friend cant make it to the bachelorette party because she is pregnant, but really wants to pay for the wine tastings and now she can!! I wish I would have thought up this company myself, so excited for it!!! If I had $150 I would get the art museum membership, we live across the street from one of the best museums in the US and its one of our all time favorite date night places- it would make such a fun wedding present for my husband to be!!! Fingers crossed!!

Lindy on Apr 10, 2011

Love this dish:

Jessica on Apr 10, 2011

Love this site! And I especially love the turkey baker! So adorable.

Stephanie Cisneros on Apr 10, 2011

I literally could spend all day on that site looking at all the stuff i want. I really like all the eco friendly stuff and home decor sections. It is such an eclectic variety of stuff. And its a great idea to boot.

Jane on Apr 10, 2011

Cool that you can register for art! I like this print called Revolutions, very dreamy:

Kfloveinme on Apr 10, 2011

Since I'm having a destination wedding I would get the Airplane Luggage Tag in Gift Box with Matching Tag for my fabulous guest! kfloveinme(at)gmail(dot)com

Sarah Parker on Apr 10, 2011

Lemonwood Silver Glass Tray

Amanda on Apr 10, 2011

An indie wishlist for an indie bride. Match made in heaven. This makes gift giving so much more fun for the guests as well. No one is excited about gifting the same old dish towels. Wah wah wah. I love this chandelier! Now that's a memorable gift!

Alex on Apr 10, 2011

It's like Christmas again! Manhattan is where my heart and my family. To host a private wine tasting would be lovely with relatives and friends.. That's why I chose the bottlerickets wine tasting for 15 people in the comfort of your own home:)

Elizabeth Glass on Apr 11, 2011 OH MY GOLLY GOSHNESS! What better way to spoil ourselves after all the hard work of planning our big day than moving into a new place and to top it off finally sitting down with friends and just enjoying a cuppa! This would be a perfect gift for my hardworking husband, great hang outs with friends and an awesome way to show off my new amazing life :D I LOVE IT!

maud on Apr 11, 2011

Lucy on Apr 11, 2011

My girlfriend and I have been looking for a clean map of the U.S. that will work on our wall. We tried one from Urban Outfitters but soon realized that there was a reason why it was on clearance. This seems like the perfect fit for us and it's customizable so that we can track our travels. What a great find!

Caroline K. on Apr 11, 2011

I love the bamboo utensil set!

Rachel Pegram on Apr 11, 2011

I would LOVE to have a Le Creuset Round French Oven!!

Gigi K on Apr 11, 2011

I love love LOVE the Alice mugs!

DS MEDIA on Apr 11, 2011

Thanks!! I really love this

Nikki P. on Apr 11, 2011

I LOVE the Dirty Laundry Guest Book Kit! Such a cute idea! Rather than a typical guest book, this kit has cut-outs of mini clothes. Guests air the couples' dirty laundry by writing a funny memory & then hang it on a little clothesline. Okay, I'm in love with this set! It's a guest book, it's a collection of funny stories, sentiments, inside jokes, etc. Also, I'm sure it would serve as wedding entertainment with everyone reading all the dirty laundry articles. Simple & brilliant.

Nikki P. on Apr 11, 2011

Eeeep! I forgot to paste the link!

Madeleine on Apr 12, 2011

I'm a sucker for glassware so of course these gorgeous recycled juice glasses caught my eye:

Meena Mathis on Apr 12, 2011 I love this pasta machine! I can't get enough of fresh pasta and i'm marrying into a BIG italian family, so this is a must have for my new life!!

Courtney Judd on Apr 12, 2011 I think these are awesome but I don't think I could ever buy them for myself!

lindsay on Apr 12, 2011 Love this piece of artwork! It will liven up the house that my husband-to-be and I will move into.

snowygreen on Apr 12, 2011

Sarah R on Apr 13, 2011

What a fabulous idea! I'd probably expand my Le Creuset collection and get the 3.5 qt oval French oven:

Tricia G on Apr 13, 2011

So much to choose from! I love how well curated the shop is. If i have to choose just one favorite, it would be the Gus Modern bishop table: I've been looking for a side table this height that can fit in a small space

Sara on Apr 13, 2011

I LOVE these "picnic" dishes in ginham. I have these perfectly nuetral white plates and am always looking for complimentary accessories for the table - these plates are perfect for patio dinners - I just imagine the cutest 4th of July cookout.... Sara

Melissa on Apr 13, 2011

I would love to have dancing lessons with my fiance. He works away a lot and it would be a great way to get close and spend time together and it would also be great practice as I am Zimbabwean and at our wedding the couples have to do some dances for the guests known as "steps", but everything on Newlywish is amazing!!!

Lisa Hoogerwerf on Apr 16, 2011

I am absolutely in LOVE with the La Scala Chandelier! and the INK Dish Kites Dinnerware collection! I SO want to win!! :) Newly Wish is GREAT!

Quinlyn on Apr 17, 2011

My fiance and I have been debating about spending the money on dancing lessons for the wedding. I would just love to be able to afford this dance lesson package! I think it could help make my wedding over the top and so memorable!

Dorothy on Apr 19, 2011

I'd love an espresso machine:

Emily on Apr 19, 2011

Oh I love everything! I suppose I would start with the Ravenscroft Crystal Alias Decanter & Funnel:

Jessica on Apr 20, 2011

What a lovely shop and a fantastic way to register! I love the Jason Miller dinnerware, especially the bowls. Both modern and paying tribute to tradition, they would be a great addition to our tiny kitchen and pieces to use for a lifetime.

libby @ pinkshirtsandcarwrecks on Apr 21, 2011
