My Local Wedding Registry Choice

It's t-minus 4 months until I'm officially hitched, so this weekend we thought it was time to start our wedding registry. My mom and I wanted to choose a local business for one registry, so we chose Keaton Place on Livingston's town square!

We wanted to include a local business for a few reasons:

1. Ease and convenience. Guests can quickly pop in, ask what we need, and purchase immediately.

2. Quality. Though I will also be registering at some chain stores, we knew Keaton Place was of the utmost quality in their pieces.

3. Shop small. We are small business advocates, and nothing could make us happier than seeing our local businesses thrive.

Now about my experience. The owners of Keaton Place are the BEST! Jennifer, Kate, and Ms. Bobbye sent me an information form to fill out beforehand so they knew all of the details before I even arrived. When my mom and I showed up to our appointment, we were surprised to a darling display with some of my favorite snacks. Their customer service is the example of southern hospitality!

My top item on my registry was several sets of our "everyday" dishes and serving pieces. They had several sets in stock so we could look at the different brands and patterns. I wanted my dishes to be from Keaton Place because of the quality. I wasn't looking for china, but I was on the hunt for quality dishes that would last us a long time. Jennifer walked us through all of the options and different price points available and took note of our simple style.

My favorite part of the whole experience was the attention to our needs. We also registered for a few home decor pieces, but Jennifer and Kate assured us that guests will be directed to purchasing our dishes first. I really appreciate this service, because those items are #1 on my want-list.

Overall, my mom and I were so pleased with our afternoon with these ladies. It was enjoyable and so easy. And we are confident that whatever we receive from Keaton Place at the shower will last us a lifetime.

We highly recommend always choosing a local business for part of your registry, and we especially recommend Keaton Place! I promise they will take care of you. (On a personal note, I also recommend taking your mom. She knew every single thing I needed.) Who knew picking out dishes could be so fun?!
