Registry FAQs

I love your stuff. How do I open a wedding registry? 

The first step is setting up an appointment! Call the store at 801-582-4462 and ask for Sarah to open a wedding registry. You can also email her at info@neworientation.com. From there, the party really begins. We'll invite you into the store at a time that works for you and you'll get to daydream up the perfect registry. We'll work with you to help you create a registry you adore. We like to take our time with our brides, which is why we ask you to come in in person. But if you live far away, we've done registries over the phone too. 

I'm in love with a china pattern I don't see on your site. Can you get it? 

Yes! We can order almost anything. We carry so much more than is pictured on the site -- we've just put up patterns that are really popular in our store and that we happen to be loving at the moment. We order from a wide variety of porcelain companies, everything from French, to English, to Scandinavian, and American-made. If you give us a call we can get to work on making all your dishes come true. Here's a sample of the companies we represent. 

I'm building a traditional registry with crystal and silver. Do you offer that? 

Absolutely. We carry silver from Ercuis, Reed & Barton, and Wallace Silversmiths. We also specialize in Waterford, Juliska, and Rogaska crystal. You can see lots of these products in our Salt Lake store, but we can order so many more for you, so if there's a setting you adore, just let us know. 

How do my friends buy gifts? 

If your friends live near by our store in Salt Lake, they can, of course, come right in. All the girls on the floor know the ins and outs of every registry, so they'll walk them through your dream list. (You can even let us know what gifts you're especially hoping to get, and they can pass that on, so your guests won't have to guess.) Of course, there's no need for them to even come into the store. They can log right onto our website and look at your page, which will be featured under our registries tab and purchase from there. If you want, you can even share the link with them. All registry orders are wrapped in bows and all the trimmings and delivered on a daily basis. 

What will my registry page look like? 

Well, to get an idea, you can look at current couple's registry, which are listed by their name. We'll get a picture of you, and put your names at the top, along with your wedding date. Some couples like to include their love story on their page -- we'll interview you and write up a darling version of your story, so that your guests can get to know you (or your fiancé) a little better. Beneath that, we'll list your registry. Your page can be as long and deep as you would like -- it all depends on how many items your register for. 

What makes New O's Registry so different from big box stores? 

Every time we welcome a new bride, our family expands a little bit. We adore our brides, and helping them envision a home they'll love is our favorite thing. We believe every home needs beautiful and useful basics, so not only do we only allow the very finest products in our store, but we like to help you along the way. Neena and Sarah's gracious guidance comes from years of building their own beautiful homes and traditions for their families, along with 18 years of personalized work in wedding registries. In our meeting, we'll talk a lot about what defines your style, and what's important to you, then help you use these things to build the perfect registry. Our brides don't just receive personalized attention when they're in the store -- all the girls at New O get to know their registries by heart, which means every time a guest comes in, we can help them through your registry. If you register for a particular china pattern because it reminds you of your grandmother's, we'll know that. If you always dreamed of having a matching set of crystal, we'll know that too. Which means that when your guests come in (or check out your registry on our site), it's more like spending time with you, and less like just looking through an overwhelming list. XO

What's the one item every couple should register for?
