Best Wedding Registry Spots In the Twin Cities

November 27, 2010 3:50 PM

Getting married can also mean a home full of new “stuff” to enjoy once the reality of marriage sinks in. But do you want to buy local or go to a “big box” store? We’ve found a few great local shops where any couple can register for all those toaster ovens and tongs. And we also offer links to national chains in Minnesota that offer gift registries. All of the options offer online purchases, making it easy for gifts to just show up at your doorstep. 

Kitchen Window

3001 Hennepin Avenue
Minneapolis, Minn. 55408
(612) 824-4417

The newly remodeled store in Calhoun Square is filled to the ceiling with anything and everything you need or want for your kitchen. They offer an online gift registry for those out of town guests. And check out hosting a bridal shower at Kitchen Window’s cook school and event center — they make the hosting easy and can take care of every little detail for between 14 and 50 guests.

With an inventory of more than 12,000 innovative culinary items, Cooks of Crocus Hill is a place for the chef in all of us. Not only can you register here, but they also offer cooking classes to fine-tune your culinary skills. Those who want to register can do so by selecting gifts at the stores in St. Paul or Edina. Once the list is created, friends and family can view and buy gifts at the store or online. As an added incentive, couples can save an additional 15 percent on any items left on their registry, just in case you didn’t get that rice maker you always wanted.
