The Knot released its 2021 trends report and stores may be happy to hear that high-end merchandise is trending.
The report shares:
"...there's a newfound focus on elevated homeware items. As one of the resounding wedding registry trends to come from the pandemic, this one is here to stay. ...Couples that do want to register for traditional items like decor, cooking appliances or serveware will opt for high-end, elevated pieces that will stand the test of time—and spark a conversation or two.
"... Instead of registering for more traditional tabletop items, couples are looking for unique brands that are not readily available in common stores," [says Federika Longinotti Buitoni, registry expert and founder of lifestyle marketplace Collecto].
... 2022 will welcome an increased demand for entertaining gifts ... like elegant glassware, serving dishes and decorative tabletop accents. "Great memories and experiences can be created at home, so we encourage couples to think about their tabletop in unique ways, selecting both versatile and statement pieces that will really make their space stand out from the rest," Buitoni explains.
Experts also predict that couples will register for high quality gifts that'll last long into their marriage. "When choosing registry items, couples are essentially building out their home with pieces that will inhabit their space for the life they're creating together," says Maximilian Riedel, CEO and President of crystal glassware brand Riedel. "It's imperative to invest in high-quality pieces that will last for years. Having pieces you're proud of—and enjoy pulling out for guests—is so important."
