2001 Best Bridal Registry

Bliss Gift & Bridal Registry

Rather than furnishing newlyweds’ houses from top to bottom, Bliss concentrates on outfitting them with some of the most exquisite and stylish tableware available. Feeling overwhelmed by the shelves of Alessi kettles, graceful Iittala glasses and vases, Bernardaud china, and CJ Vander flatware? Worry not. The staff here not only knows everything about this merchandise but also is well trained in the art of guiding couples through the selection process. Furthermore, the Web site lets guests easily make their purchases from afar, all registry gift wrapping is complementary, and there’s a registry completion program that includes 10 percent off anything a couple purchases themselves after the wedding.
