Navigating Your Wedding Registry

Krista Dentice

Some of you may be wondering ‘what exactly is the point of a wedding registry and do I really need one?’ For those of you who are new to the subject, wedding registries are select items commonly from a home goods store such as appliances, dish sets, etc. I know many modern couples feel they already have everything they need for their home, especially if they have already been living together for years. And let’s face it, most people are hoping for CASH! But keep in mind, you will want to register for at least some items for your bridal shower at the very least. And while at most weddings these days we see very few actual gifts, some of your guests would really enjoy and prefer to buy you a gift rather than gift you money.

When registering, it is important to go into the process with an idea of what you're looking for. Most registries are categorized into sections of kitchen (which has many sub-categories of it’s own!), bedding, bath, decor, etc. Once you know what you want and need and determine which store(s) best fits your style, you are ready to begin!

From my experience, there are four different types of couples who register.

1. The couple who needs the basics for the kitchen. This couple is looking to pick out dishware, drinkware, silverware, bakeware, and appliances. This is the perfect opportunity to rid your cabinets of any mismatched dishes you still have from your college years. Or perhaps you look at this as a great opportunity to upgrade to a nicer set. It can also be fun to select some of those fun kitchen gadgets and appliances you have been wanting to try!

2. The couple who needs the basics for the bedroom(s) and bathroom(s). Let’s face it, linens wear out and fade over time. Unless you have recently purchased new sheet sets, pillows, and a comforter, this is a great opportunity to upgrade or find something that fits both of your styles. And who would love some fresh soft towels and rugs for the bathroom?

3. The couple who already has the basics listed above, but would love some home decor to spruce up their place. Now is the time to pick out the finishing touches to complete your home. This could be anything you want or need: curtains, rugs, picture frames, vases, art, a clock. You could even select larger items such as furniture or a lighting fixture, which make great group gifts.

4. The couple who has already created and filled the perfect home together, but would love more equipment for entertaining guests and pursuing their hobbies together. This is the perfect chance to pick out a new grill, camping or hiking gear, games, or items you could use for traveling (luggage or a go pro perhaps).

Aside from these traditional types or registries, many couples these days are opting for honeymoon registries, where their guests can contribute to their honeymoon fund and often can select where they would like their money to be spent (couple’s massage, an excursion on your choosing, dinner for two on the beach, etc.)


How To Incorporate Food Trucks Into Your Wedding

Krista Dentice

Who doesn’t love food trucks? They are so much fun, especially at a wedding! They are extremely versatile, can arrive in many shapes and sizes and can serve all types of cuisines. Today I’m going to share a few different ways to incorporate a food truck (or two) into your wedding plans as well as tell you about some of the unique options Milwaukee has to offer.

The diversity in food truck cuisine is perfect for a wedding meal because you can get really creative with it, serving anything from tacos to pizza to burgers (or all three!) This option is perfect for a couple hosting a more laid back wedding, such as in a backyard, at a park, or an event space (like a barn) with easy access to the outdoors. Most couples will choose 2-3 different cuisines to offer their guests a choice. From a planning standing point, one perk is that your guests don’t have to choose their meal ahead of time and you won’t need to keep track of who ordered what.

Here are some great options Milwaukee has to offer for dinner:

Gouda Girls serves grilled cheese and other sandwiches

Streetza Pizza serves pizza by the slice

Hidden Kitchen MKE serves fresh, farm-to-truck food

Mazorca Tacos serves tacos

Firewise Barbecue serves Wisconsin-style barbecue

Truckmeister serves burgers


Now let’s talk about dessert! Couples are getting more and more creative with their dessert selections these days. While we still see a lot of traditional wedding cakes, a lot of couple choose to offer multiple desserts options (and some even skip the cake altogether).

Here are a few dessert trucks we think sound incredible:

Press serves Belgian Liège waffles (we’ve had their waffles at our wedding pictures above - so good!)

Cupcake-A-Rhee serves cupcakes, of course

Chillwaukee Pops serves unique frozen pops

Happy Dough Lucky serves mini donuts and coffee

Nimble Coffee Bar serves coffee and specialty coffee drinks as well an mini bundt cakes


Even if you are planning a more traditional wedding and prefer a classic sit-down dinner and dessert selection, food trucks can still be apart of your special day. We’ve seen a lot of couples utilize a food truck as their late night food option. What better way to end a wedding reception full of dancing and drinking?

Here are some options we think sound perfect for a late night snack:

Blue Cow Creperie serves crepes (I’ve tried one before and it was delicious)

Fivestar Nacho serves nachos, of course

Rolling Cones serves bread cones with meat & vegetarian fillings


You could also choose any of the dinner or dessert options listed above. Pizza, waffles, burgers, most of those items would work well as a late night snack option as well.

Happy Wedding Planning!






Bridesmaids Gift Box Ideas

Krista Dentice

I’m sure you’ve seen these adorable fun filled gift boxes floating around on Pinterest. I think they are such a sweet gesture to give to your best gals either as a way of asking them to stand up in your wedding or as a thank you gift on the wedding day. These gift boxes typically contain items such as sweets, mini bottles of champagne, and personalized gifts. They can be purchased online (most commonly on Etsy); however, for those of you that are crafty, you might have more fun putting them together yourself!
