This is just one article in a series entitled “The Best Wedding Registry”. Each article in the series focuses on different rooms of the house. The links to other parts in this series are found at the end of each article.

A bride is stepping into running her own household. She is creating the whole home, but it is the master bedroom that is the oasis. The wedding registry is a great way to collect some of these bedroom essentials. Designing this room means considering two major factors: the bedding and the lighting.

Register for quality sheets. This is “Build the Best Wedding Registry” not the cheapest, not the trendiest. The best. Most fabrics that cheap sheets are made from pill terribly. That means a thousand mini hard balls scraping against you. It just feels ICK. But the thing is, cheap sheets are cheap….nice sheets are expensive. I have had really good experience with bamboo sheets never pilling and being the softest silkiest sheets ever, however they do stain more easily than other materials. High quality made in USA 100% cotton sheets are another solid option. Avoid ANYTHING synthetic. It will pill and make you sweat at night. Consider registering for multiple sets of the sheets because ideally you should have two sets of sheets per bed.


Do you know the difference between these items? If so, do you know which you prefer? If you don’t, figure out what you like first. Then register for this item which acts as the main topper over the bed. You need to know what you like because this piece of bedding defines the look of the bed and sets the tone of the look of the bedroom. Do you like neutrals? Romantic reds? Cool blues? Get a strong idea of what you want by looking through photos and register for the topper that gives you that look. Oddly, the topper can be found in more affordable prices than sheets. Some of my favorite comforters and duvet covers were very inexpensive but looked high end!


Another option is to register for an entire bedding set. These include everything from the dust ruffle, to the comforter, to the shams. These sets are helpful for the woman who does not want to pick out the individual items.


If you are not registering for a bedding set, make sure to register for the separate items that your bed needs. Dust ruffles or “bed skirts” finish the look of the bed by hiding the space underneath the bed rails. This is handy if you use beneath the bed as a storage area. I just love the look of a bed skirt, especially ruffled ones that look billowy. But you can find beautiful sleek straight ones too!


Shams are sold with sheet sets, bedding sets, or sold separately. If you want a set of shams and they did not come in a bed set you registered for, or you are not registering for any sets, be sure to register for them separately. I love shams to finish the look of a bed.


Register for the blanket size that your bed requires, but you need to have a couple different blankets for the bed. This is an advanced tip, but I always purchase blankets one size larger than my bed size. I like the roominess for two people sharing it and the length looks more elegant to me. The bed needs multiple blankets for different needs. The fact is, if one blanket gets dirty, at least you have another one clean. I suggest one natural fiber blanket like a cotton, which makes it breathable. I also suggest a synthetic fiber blanket in a plush microfiber material. Those blankets are super insulating and feel luxuriously soft for bedding.


You have the rest of your life to buy too many throw pillows. But the fact is, you might be starting with nothing or some cheap crappy ones you are bringing into the marriage. Time to consider the quality and look you want to design into your romantic getaway of a master bedroom. Now is the time to register for those oversized gorgeous throw pillows. A pair of great decorative pillows goes a long way for a bed.


The master bedroom is a place of relaxation and romance. One of the quickest ways to create this ambiance is by candle light. Hang candle sconces, put candles on the bed side tables or the dresser. I suggest healthier options like bees wax candles or candles scented naturally with essential oils instead of fake fragrance. Since these types of candles are more expensive, they are the perfect item to put on a wedding registry. One of the best jobs of the wife is to infuse romance into every day life and make your time with your husband special.


I know we all use phones now days but I am personally trying to get away from my phone being a central hub of every necessity. Whatever happened to the bedside clock? They are beautiful and functional. I need a clock that I can look at that does not blare bright light into my unadjusted eyes. I am not even talking about a digital clock but a clock with a regular face, no lights. I think this is a wonderful element to add to a master bedroom and it gives you the time if your phone gets lost or broken.


You want to know what is super necessary? Window treatments. Whether you need full light blocking or light filtering curtains, this is an item for the wedding registry. Know the measurements for the length of curtains you need before putting this on your list. Be sure you get ones that graze the floor or puddle for the best look (you do not want curtains that are ready for a flood). Take your curtain measurement by hanging the rod 4-6 inches above the window and measure to the floor from there. Hand your rods high and your curtains long. Curtains give instant style, elegance and warmth to a bedroom and cover the windows if needed.
