While some wedding preparations require you to think pink, others go for an ivory inspiration — but no matter the weather, Crate & Barrel is your one-stop centre for all things wedding-related.

Crate and Barrel

From dinnerware and bakeware to linens and cutlery, their new collection features themed sets that set the mood to your liking. Who knew cutlery could be couture? We didn't — but the accessories specialist has introduced the Couture collection of cutlery with sleek, curved handles. For more grip, you can opt for the Boulder collection, a set featuring modern round handles with a classic hammered finish. On-trend picks such as marble wine coolers also fare, as do wood-accented serveware. Ideal for picnic and garden settings, serve up cheeses on an oak board or an acacia wedge, with wood grain for a rustic feel.
