by Azure

About Bubbly Bride When looking at a registry online, it is filled with housewares and bedding, much needed items to start a new home but not necessarily gifts from the heart. If you are a close friend or family member of the couple getting married, and you have spent the last few years celebrating milestones and supporting them through tough times... buying a china set might seem a bit dull in comparison.
