The Best Towels to Add to Your Wedding Registry
Don't overlook these bathroom essentials when curating your prenuptial gift list.
While bedding commercials take every opportunity to remind us that we spend one-third of our lives sleeping (which is why you should have the comfiest sheets and mattress possible), you rarely hear bath companies tout how many hours of our lives we devote to bathing. Sure, that amount of time doesn't come close to how much time we spend snoozing, but we do bathe everyday, and do you really want to be using thin, threadbare, non-absorbent towels after each luxurious shower or bath? The answer is most likely no, you don't, but that you just haven't prioritized replacing them because you keep saying they'll do "for now." Lucky for you, now is the perfect moment to upgrade your linen closet. As someone who is about to get married, your wedding registry affords you the perfect opportunity to pick out a few new sets of luxurious, high-quality towels.
There are a few things you'll want to remember as you go about adding towels to your registry. First, consider what size towels you want. Do you like a standard towel, or are you happier when wrapped in an oversized bath sheet? You'll also want to think about what level of absorbency is important to you. If drips are an absolute no-go, you'll want to choose the plushest option on the market. Last but not least, you should spend some time considering what overall style is best for you and your partner. After all, you'll both being using them each day, and while you may love the look of an ultra-fluffy pink towel, he might not.
While it may seem like all towels look the same, that's actually far from true. There are myriad bath options with patterns, monogramming, piping, rounded or tasseled edges, and more. If you're hoping to consider all the different variations of the best towels on the market, we're here to help! Click through to see our favorite towels to add your wedding registry.
