Get a sneak peek at what you will soon find on poladora.
Have you ever wondered what is the proper etiquette for wedding gifts and creating a wedding registry when one — or both — of the intended has already been married at least once before? One bride I know, about to embark on her first and her groom’s second marriage, really wanted to register for some fine china that she had always loved. But she was concerned that guests would find it rather excessive of her to ask for china when her soon-to-be husband already has multiple sets from his first marriage.
Have you thought about having a wedding accessories shower? Instead of asking your friends to get you some kitchen gadgets or objects for the boudoir, why not invite them to help accessorize the bride for her big day. By registering for your wedding and bridal shower gifts with Poladora’s consolidated network of local Chicago stores, you will have flexible wedding registry that will allow you to do just that!
Yesterday I had a fun time visiting our partner Crosell&Co to drop off our new brochures and see what was going on ins store and see what new great things you can add to your wedding registry.
I thought I would post some nice pictures from the visit and encourage you to swing by their store at 900N Michigan and see what great items you could get for your home.
Also some of their items are only carried in store and not at Poladora.com so if you see something you get a gift card and have fun shopping… Don’t forget to tell Dianne we say Hi!
Doesn’t it always seem like wedding shower gifts (and many wedding gifts themselves) are more geared to what the home-decorating and kitchen-oriented spouse will enjoy? How about speaking up for the member of the family who cares more about function over form? There just might be the perfect shower gift waiting for them at www.poladora.com, the consolidated wedding registry of local Chicago stores.
Not to be cliche but let’s start off with the perfect gift for many a guy — a gift certificate from the Wine Discount Center. It can be used at any of their Chicago-area locations and also has the added benefit of getting your spouse (and maybe you too) out of the house for a few hours while they browse the aisles for some bottles to stock your cellar.
And what guy doesn’t enjoy a great yoga stretch or a therapeutic rubdown, both of which can be obtained through Poladora purchased gift certificates from Yogaview or Urban Oasis. You can even arrange a couples session for that Yoga Class or Massage — something you can both enjoy together! And when your man gets home, he can relax in a Adjustable Lounge Chair ($540) from Sawbridge Studios that offers comfort with a traditional Arts & Crafts feel.
If your guys likes to spend time with Man’s best friend, how about a Dog Bone Ornament Frame ($23.50 from Crosell & Co.) containing a photo of Fido to hang in his office? Or, register for the best gift of all — a Taste of Chicago from Provenance which will keep you out of the kitchen and able to spend more time together and how can there be a better wedding shower gift than that?
