Wedding season is almost upon us. When your friend, sister or co-worker announces, “I’m engaged “your first question, “where are you registered”?
Typical responses are the national chain stores who offer registries of fine china, bath towels or the classic kitchen appliances. Today’s bride is often a little older and many have had apartments either alone or with their significant other. With so many brides who are marrying a little later due to education and careers, most engaged couples already have household items they will bring into the marriage.
But there is another option for 2019 brides, Mishkalo.
Mishkalo is a new one- of — a kind wedding registry offering engaged couples original art from around the world.
Unlike traditional gifts that are utilitarian, Mishkalo provides an option that’s aspirational for brides and grooms to get a one-of-a-kind gift which is the first thing they’ll own together as a newly married couple.
They carry a curated collection of quality artwork and help couples get a wedding gift that will be unique, meaningful and bring back memories of one of the best moments of their lives. Creating a registry is free and simple and they can share it with their guests who can contribute any amount to help them get a beautiful piece of art.
“The traditional wedding gifts were utilitarian items meant to help a young couple start a new home. What would make a home for a modern, established couple? We thought it is anything that uniquely defines them. Although both of us had art in our backgrounds, when we lived in China, we had become art collectors. Now we think of the art we have as something that’s uniquely ours. We talked to several couples and artists and found that the idea of original art as wedding gifts was very well received by both,” Charu Swaminathan, Co-founder & CEO.
Mishkalo has free personal curation based on their preferences, taste, and budget to help couples select the perfect art for their home. Their skilled staff also offers a free personalized wedding website for couples to tell their unique story and free ‘Thank You’ cards with the artwork that they received so that their guests can remember what they gave.
“I have nothing but good things to say about working with Mishkalo! I first heard about Mishkalo at a bridal fair and was immediately interested in the idea of registering for art pieces. Many modern-day couples (including me & my hubby) already have kitchenware items and most of the other gifts that couples traditionally used to register for. Instead, we were able to register for a beautiful painting that will remind us every day of our wedding! An extremely simple process to create and share the registry, and their selection is stunning”, Alyssa and Jake.
You can browse through the art gallery of stunning original art on the Mishkalo website or commission a wedding portrait.
Whatever the couple chooses, they can now have a registry with true meaning and a gift that will last a lifetime. This registry idea of today’s couple has been long overdue. The long-term value and sentimental emotion behind original art is a gift that will last more than a lifetime. It is something that couples can pass along to their future children and grandchildren.
As a bride, you now have a one-of-a kind registry option that will create a memory for your lifetime.
