With so many options for gift registries nowadays and so many options for doing things differently I wanted to explore one of my new favourite options for wedding gifts – art gallery wedding registries!
So many incredible galleries are offering a gift registry service nowadays, with couples able to nominate a favourite piece of art which guests can contribute too. I am a sentimental sort so I love the idea of having a painting I adore on my wall, knowing that it was contributed to by my favourite people. It’s also a really brilliant option if you have a plethora of home goods already but want something really special in your home.
So today? I’m letting you in one ten of my favourite galleries that offer gift registries. Let me know if you have any other favourites by leaving a comment!
