The Storied Table Wedding Registry

It’s wedding shower time and we are always looking for new and unique wedding registry sources for our newly engaged couples to know about. Forget about the dreaded trip to a traditional department store or big box shops that will be eager to hand you a scanning gun. It may sound fun at first but it’s really only exciting for 3 minutes, then it just becomes “buyers fatigue”, too many decisions and you begin to put not much thought or care into what really would love to have in your registry long or short term!

The Storied Table is the perfect wedding registry for  modern couples looking for unique items and experiences. It’s definitely a wedding trend we see increasing with popularity.  Think about it, most couples today already own a lot of good basic kitchen items and simply do not need or want more. Grooms are getting more involved in the wedding planning process and  deciding what they want to be in the household and their wedding registry.  Also, there are so many gift givers (like me!) that want to standout for finding the perfect wedding or shower gift. Besides, they'd be more likely to remember who gifted a wonderful addition to their household vs. that fancy crock pot! (Think gorgeous silver trays, artisinal blown glassware from The Storied Table...) View the latest Storied Table video for some simple yet beautiful styling tips and advice.

Experiential gifts are also on the rise. Think private cooking classes, foodie trips, home styling sessions or donating to the couples favorite charity. The Storied Table can custom design unique experiences you could only wish to receive for your wedding registry.

The Left Bank Jewelry & Bridal Finery is hosting a special Pop Up Shop for The Storied Table on Sunday March 5th from 12-3 to showcase their unique and beautiful tabletop selections.
We’ll be serving special drinks and light bites. Hope to see you there!

Blue Wedding Shoes !

Our beautiful bride Cynthia was blessed with having two wedding ceremonies in one day! She was married in a traditional Catholic Church followed by a Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony in Chicago.
She gave us her wedding invitation and asked us to dye her Angela Nuran bridal shoes to match. She opted for a beautiful blue buckle adornment on the shoe. Her blue wedding shoes match her fiance's wedding suit perfectly! All of our Angela Nuran shoes are made of pure luxe silk and crafted to dye whatever color you desire. She loved them so much that she ordered a pair of Angela Nuran shoes in black silk after her wedding! All  photos are by Chicago Wedding Photographer, Angela Garbot Photography

Always a perfect pose. Cynthia wore a gorgeous lace wedding gown with gorgeous back detailing.
Her dear Mother bought her light blue topaz earrings and a matching necklace. She carried through the "Something Blue" theme in her wedding brilliantly!

Merci Beaucoup Cynthia for your wonderful review of The Left Bank Jewelry & Bridal Finery!
(As Published on Wedding Wire and Yelp)
"I went to the Left Bank specifically to look at and try on Angela Nuran shoes.  I purchased Angela Nuran's Astoria shoes with the Antique brooch.  I had them custom dyed to match my wedding color.  They turned out perfect.  Not only did the look beautiful, but they were comfortable as well - more comfortable than I ever thought a pair of heels could feel.  After my wedding, I bought a second pair in black!  In addition to the shoes, I purchased a decorative hair clip and a bracelet for my wedding, plus other jewelry to wear to the brunch the day after the wedding.  The Left Bank has such pretty jewelry and accessories, not just for bridal and weddings.  The staff is friendly and helpful and knowledgeable.  Sign up for their e-mail list.  They have great events and sales, even online."
