Meet Our Very First Registrant!January 22, 2015
Holly‚ Boedeker wasn’t just the first bride to sign up for our registryshe actually said I do! to the service before it launched. While browsing Anthropologie.com, Holly noticed a test link (which, oops, we thought was hidden) and promptly began adding items. A couple of hours later, I received an e-mail from Anthropologie saying that I had managed to find the registry during the 20 minutes that it was on the website, she explains. I was almost embarrassed because I figured that meant I was on my computer too much, but I was also excited about being the first registrant! And we were just as excited to have her. Holly and her husband, Joshua, were married over the fall in Oklahoma City, and she was kind enough to share some photos (swoon alert!) and fill us in on her big day.
First thing’s first: Let’s hear about this lovely dress! Dare we say we
From the moment I saw it, I was in love with it!‚ All of the gowns from‚ BHLDN‚ are amazing, but I kept going back to pictures of the‚ Tia, and knew it was the one.‚ My dress was just so perfect. It was romantic, and the beading was beautiful.
How about these gorgeous bridesmaids’ dresses?
I’m not really a big fan of bright colors, so I went with neutral and blush tones. I love the mismatched trend, so I let the girls find their own dresses in a style they were comfortable with. After adding some accessories, everything went together perfectly!
What are some of the most memorable gifts you received?
My favorite gift from my Anthropologie registry is the‚ teakwood utensil set. My great-aunt sent it to us, and I was absolutely thrilled when I opened the package! I have them displayed in a canister in our kitchen right nowI avoid using them because I love them so much. Another favorite gift is a console table that my dad handmade for us. He used salvaged redwood and mahogany, and it is amazing. We were used it in the wedding ceremony and it’s in our home now; we will have it for the rest of our lives.
Now that you’ve pulled off the big day, any advice you’d like to impart on brides-to-be?
The best advice I can give is to stay organized! Have a notebook for everything wedding related: receipts, schedules, prices, business cards, when payments are dueeverything.‚ And let people help you!
