The Hint Registry’s top 10 tips for picking your ideal reception venue

You want the perfect venue for your perfect day, and take our word for it, you really can have it. Your big day is likely to be the biggest planning project of any kind that you have ever undertaken. And therein lies the key. You really only need to do three things: budget, research and plan. But, as always, the devil is in the detail. So, let us fill in some of that detail for you with our top tips for a perfect venue.


The Hint Registry presents … our 5 favourite dinner sets

Dinner parties are not going out of style any time soon. They are and will remain your chance to not just bring conviviality into your home, but to impress with your taste and unique style. So: style it up, and set the perfect table with these superlative choices.

Japanese chinaware company Noritake established itself in Australia in 1958 and had a mid-century heyday downunder as the quintessential and, indeed, ubiquitous wedding gift. Now experiencing a second wind for their practical yet pretty and very fine quality tableware, Noritake offers a large range of dinner set that are a great pick for couples with contemporary or vintage tastes.

Top tips for gift registry success

Gift registries are where the art of giving meets the art of receiving graciously.


Your Wedding Gift Registry Table

You’ve given a lot of thought to your Hint Registry wedding gift registry, and everything has gone smoothly. Now the day has arrived, and your guests are asking where to put your gifts.



Vera Wang

The Hint Registry loves … Vera Wang

Ah, Vera Wang. There are not too many other designers who could bedazzle your finger, scent your bridesmaids, style your reception tabletop, and then ice the cake with all your most luxurious stationery needs as well. In fact, if you loved Vera Wang as much as we do, you could conceivably go elsewhere for not much more than your cake.


Honeymoon Inspiration - Pippa Middleton's Honeymoon


Who wouldn’t envy Pippa Middleton’s smooth and stylish transition from world’s most famous bridesmaid to bride? We also like how she brought part of sister Kate’s wedding gift from their parents along the way, a pair of Robinson Pelham diamond drop earrings specially commissioned for the royal wedding which she wore as bridesmaid.


Wedding Expos

Where better to gather ideas about how to make your special day even more special?

We at The Hint Registry love a good expo, and we are pretty sure you do, too. It’s the chance to meet with favourite and up-and-coming designers, to check out the trends and – let’s admit it! – to maybe pick up a prize or discount or two. We love a good private showing of high-end new season looks in bridal gowns, too. Who doesn’t?


Bridal shower gifts we love right now

Attending a bridal shower, kitchen tea or hens night and in search of the perfect gift?  Or maybe you're setting up a bridal shower registry for yourself or a bride-to-be.  Well look no further, here are our favourite gifts for the bride-to-be!

Nothing says style and sophistication like a monogrammed leather clutch.  We love the burgundy envelope clutch (pictured above) from The Daily Edited and think it exudes quality. Remember, if you are going for the monogrammed option you have some important decisions – is the bride-to-be changing her name so she will new initials?  If you’re unsure, it may be safer to arrange for the personalisation later or go for something more general, like her first initial or name only.


Registry rules: The dos and don'ts of asking for gifts

You've created a registry, to make life easy for your guests and ensure you receive gifts you'll love and need.  But how do you tell your guests about the registry without appearing presumptuous? Wondering about the etiquette when it comes to wedding registries? Here are a few tips.

A classic piece of advice when it comes to etiquette is that couples should not mention the registry on the invitation.  This sounds a little tricky. If the details aren’t on the invitation, where should they go?
