We're all about collections over at Provisions -- and we don't want you to miss out on the fun.

Today: Wedding season is upon us, and we're finding gifts worthy of the occasion.

Wedding registries are both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you know you’re giving something that the couple specifically wants. On the other hand, it starts feeling unoriginal to wrap up yet another set of flatware. And for our nearest and dearest, we’d really love to offer a present that does their union justice -- and celebrates such a momentous life step.

We totally get behind the idea of a gift to help start a home, or build a kitchen -- they should fill their newlywed days with good meals! But we need ways to riff on this theme. Instead of classic serveware, give a hand-thrown porcelain bowl in a slightly unusual shape. Give Swedish-inspired patterned dessert plates. Package up some shiny vintage copper cookware -- it’ll function as art when not in use. 


A wedding is all about the love, so we’ve decided the best gift-giving tactic is to collect pieces we’ve fallen for (shop our Wedding collection here). If you love it, and you love them, by our math, they’ll love it too.

And if you're one of the lucky ones tying the knot this summer, listen up! We've recently added a wish list feature to the site -- you can now save products to a collection by clicking on the "save" button on any product page (shown in the example below), so round up everything you love, save it to a new collection (here's one of ours), and send it to your guests. They'll give something unique, and you'll get something gorgeous. How's that for a match made in heaven?
