where to register?

BAY AREA REGISTRY FINDS by charlotte miller

One of the most exciting and nerve racking parts of planning a wedding is the wedding registry. With so many places to register, finding a unique place to register is a challenge. Luckily for the Bay Area bride, there are a few unique shops for the bride that wants something a little off the beaten path. Here are three of our favorite places to register in San Francisco.

1. Heath Ceramics

Forego registering for traditional china opting for pieces that have an everyday elegance. Founded in 1948 by Edith Heath, Heath Ceramics is a longtime San Francisco favorite. Their handcrafted simple mid-century designs coupled with durability make Heath’s ceramics a unique take on tableware. Each piece is made locally in their original factory in Sausalito their fifty craftspeople.

Heath is known for their simple and rustic dinnerware and serveware sets. The color selections and styles are perfect for either making a curated set or work well mixed and matched. In addition, Heath carries unique vendors such as David Mellor, Holmegaard, and Weck.

2. Hudson Grace

For the bride who loves to entertain in her home, register at Hudson Grace. Started by Monelle Totah and Gary McNatton, Hudson Grace was founded with the belief that entertaining should be gracious, fun and always inspiring. Curate the perfect space with their beautiful selection of linens, serving trays, glassware, and much more. We love their European finds such as the square French cutting board made from reclaimed 19th century European timber.

3. Gumps

For the California native, registering at Gumps is a must! Gumps is the legendary upscale San Francisco department store. Gumps is known for their home furnishings and accent pieces. Whether you are looking for cozy home finds such as cashmere throws and decorative pillows or asian inspired lamps and furniture, Gumps is the go-to place in San Francisco.
