Decorating a home is always a work in progress, so why not make it part of your wedding planning fun? Whether your vibe is mid-century modern or Gilded Age glam, adding home decor items to your wedding registry can be a great way to curate your shared style.
When you’ve exhausted your options for kitchen appliances and ceramic cookware sets, turn your attention to registry gifts that are fashionable yet functional. Home decor is a category with endless possibilities. While furniture may be better suited for group gifting through cash fund on your wedding website, items like frames and vases are great wedding registry ideas that come in a variety of price points. Plus, your wedding guests will love seeing their gifts displayed when they’re invited over for your first dinner party!
From chic barware to stunning tabletop accents, we’ve put together a home decor guide featuring the best wedding registry gifts that will ensure you and your partner have the most cozy, stylish space to begin life as newlyweds.

Its three-dimensional wire edge casts shifting, overlapping shadows as you view it from different angles. Consider this mirror if you have a small room you want to appear larger, as the reflection creates the illusion of more space.
