Here is a peak at the table Mike and I registered for using a non-traditional registry. Neither of us were that into any of the regular dish "sets" available out there, so we decided to go for a random mix + match look. And when I say "we decided" I mean I proposed it and Mike nodded that he didn't care while watching Sports Center. Permission granted.
I know a lot of you aren't engaged (or are already married) and my wedding registry isn't that interesting to you. But what I wanted to show here is that your table (and your decorating in general) does not have to match. Buy things you love and collect them over time. It will work. Trust yourself.
