Everyone loves receiving beautiful gifts and this week I’m meeting someone who specialises in them, Katie from The Wedding Nest. The Wedding Nest is an online wedding gift registry service that is perfect for the stylish couple who want those special keepsake pieces to remember their wedding by.
Katie bought the business one year ago from the original founders and tells me that the idea came from there being nothing on the market besides big department store registries with boring gift options.
“They started The Wedding Nest with the belief that a wedding registry should style a home” says Katie “I have a background in interior design so it’s always been something I have loved to do”.
Couples can create their own registry online on the beautiful website. I love that it is not only broken up into categories but also different styles like contemporary, eclectic or beach. There’s a huge range of items from cookware, to dining, lighting, homewares and even furniture and outdoor. Everything is carefully chosen by Katie and there’s a real emphasis in quality, handmade and designer pieces that stand the test of time.
While The Wedding Nest is web-based, Katie loves it when couples can see the gifts in person and is happy to visit Sydney based couples for a customised styling consult. “I can help couples choose the perfect items to complete their home” says Katie “sometimes it takes a stylist’s eye to see what you might be missing or what might fit with your current style”.

The Wedding Nest are also a regular feature at bridal fairs where their stands are a popular place for couples to play with different pieces and looks. “While the website is carefully designed to be simple and fun for guests to use, sometimes older guests might like to call or email me” says Katie “It’s all part of the service and I’m there to help with everything from helping guests to organising delivery directly to couples homes after the big day”. How exciting after the wedding to receive a beautiful collection of new pieces to style your home!
Ms Zigzag says: It’s so great to know that there is a caring, professional stylist behind this gorgeous wedding registry. When trying to pick out gifts that are going to last a lifetime, couples will appreciate the guidance from Katie!
