Planning a wedding is a daunting process, and while coming up with wedding registry ideas can be a lot of fun, sometimes it just feels like another item on the to-do list. Don’t worry – we’re here to help! Check out this extensive list of fun-yet-functional wine gifts to include on your wedding registry. You and your brand new spouse will be drinking wine in style in no time!
1. Wine Pearls
Love your white wine as cold as possible, but sick of people picking on you for putting ice cubes in your glass (we still say ice cubes are fine!)? These wine pearls will chill your wine and keep ice cube naysayers at bay.
2. Outdoor Wine Glasses
Planning to spend a lot of time drinking wine outside (this is northern Michigan, after all)? These wine glasses with a protective silicone sleeve are perfect for having a glass of wine on the porch or at the beach.
3. Wine Growler
Want to keep your wine at the right temperature when taking it to a barbecue or picnic? This insulated wine growler has you covered! And it gives you the freedom to bring wine somewhere glass isn’t allowed.
4. Bottle Opener
You’re definitely going to need something to open all your wine! While we love a simple hinged waiter’s corkscrew like this one – this is a time to splurge! This electric push-button corkscrew does all the work for you, making opening that bottle easier than ever.
5. Wine Rack for Your Bike
Planning to travel by bike to a lot of picnics in your newly married life? Then believe it or not, there’s a handcrafted leather wine carrier that attaches right to your bike frame that’s the perfect addition to your wedding registry! It’s useful, beautiful, and totally classy.
6. Wine Chiller
Keep your white wine chilled at the table and add a little style to your meal with this hammered copper wine chiller.
7. Countertop Wine Rack
Every wine drinker needs somewhere to store their bottles – a simple wine rack is the perfect space-saving solution or way to show off your bottles (we designed our labels to be appreciated!). We love this simple, modern copper wire rack, but choose something that fits your style.
8. Wine Glasses
Creating a wedding registry is the perfect time to ask for a set of high-quality wine glasses. Choose something that fits with your style, be they stemmed or stemless. Glasses made of crystal or quality glass are always a great choice – and don’t forget to register for both white and red wine glasses!
9. CGT Limited Release Wines
With digital registries allowing you to register for anything sold online, your wedding registry is a great way to get a few special bottles of wine! Register for something from our limited release collection to celebrate your first anniversary (or, let’s be honest … popping one open on your one-week anniversary might be more realistic).
