The Registry Edit
by Silver Aisle

Hi there! Let me first introduce myself––my name is Yanika and I'm the Founder of Silver Aisle. I was born and raised in Sri Lanka, and spent five years away––four in California, and a year in London. I love all things tech, design, and innovative, and that has been the soul of Silver Aisle.
The idea of creating an online wedding gift registry first came about in 2019 after having spent YEARS listening to my parents' joke about receiving ten tea sets at their wedding. The more I spoke to friends and family, the more I realized that everyone had their own version of tea sets. Therefore, the mission of Silver Aisle became quickly apparent: have an extensive but curated selection of the highest quality products from an array of brands on one platform, and enable couples to create the registry-of-their-dreams in just one click.
The Registry Edit is going to be a monthly column, where I will note down a few special pieces that I personally think are a must for every registry!
The perfect registry, in my opinion, includes a collection of thoughtful, timeless staples that are practical, durable, and of high-quality, combined with those dreamy accent pieces that give your space personality and character (and the things you may never buy for yourself otherwise!)
Smeg Mini Appliances
Smeg; the never-ending debate––the ladies will argue that these beauties are staples, and the gents will disagree. I think Smeg is the perfect hybrid of both; a high-quality essential that also happens to be (ridiculously) easy on the eyes. The price-tag, however, is not for the faint of heart. Luckily, for Silver Aisle couples, through our Pooling function, your loved ones can contribute an amount of their liking towards these pieces, making luxury a reality!
Elegant, modern, luxurious. These high-quality, almost Versace-esque pieces can elevate any dinner table and will always remain on-trend.
Traditional with a twist is what Sonali Dharmardena does best, and these cushions are the perfect accent pieces to give colour and character to your favourite spaces (and we can customize the colour to suit your home aesthetic).
A staple for any registry –– an entire Glassware series. From Whiskey glasses to Wine, Champagne, and Tumblers, equipping yourself with these essentials will ensure your ready for decades worth of festivities!
I would add multiple quantities of this luxurious, smooth, ivory bedding onto a registry, any day, every day! Our supplier, Legacy Linen, is a wholesaler supplying to the best resorts across our Paradise Island, and who wouldn't want to snuggle up under this majestic duvet?
Statement pieces effortlessly transform a minimal space––and these beauties from Gandhara would complement a white sofa or a cozy reading nook perfectly.
A statement Laundry Bin?––yes, please!
Between planning a wedding and moving into a new home, your bank account might not be loving you at the moment. This is one reason I always encourage couples to add high-value necessities like a good quality fridge, TV, Washing Machine, etc. onto their registry because the pooling function will enable this gift to actually be purchased! (and will save you a pretty penny in the process).
After a busy few months of wedding planning and moving house, there's nothing quite like kicking it back with your new hubby/wifey, sipping on some bevvies, and simply enjoying being together. A beverage tasting experience (from Whiskey to Arrack, Gin, and more) is the perfect Experience to include in your registry, and something you both can look forward together!
