You’re doing it all right if you’ve already tapped this list of inspiring Black wedding professionals to hire! Even better if you’re familiar with this important letter about our ongoing commitment to support Black-owned businesses + support the end of racial injustice. Another great way to support the Black community is by adding products from Black owned businesses to your universal wedding registry! We found a few that would be great to add to your registry – or shop for gifts! Either way, there’s a wine club (or two) that we’ll be joining.
Here are a few of our favorite registry picks – from wine club memberships to salad bowls + many rad products in between:
Food + Wine
McBride Sisters Collection
Adding a wine club subscription to your wedding registry is a win-win; especially when you’re supporting the dreams of two sisters and tasting the sweet fruits of their labor! McBride Sisters Winery in Oakland, CA offers wine club memberships and the coolest wine label ever: Black Girl Magic.
Get your hands on this magic by adding the wine membership or a couple of cases to your universal Amazon registry!
Yes, we love a universal registry for couples so they can gleefully comprise a single registry from products found on and off Amazon.com. If you don’t know already, here’s more about why we love Amazon’s universal registry (and how you can sign up)!
You’re surely already familiar with how Amazon works and the benefits of that simple ‘buy now’ click. It’s easy, fast + reliable. It’s also another great way to support Black owned businesses that might not otherwise be easily added to a wedding registry. So, if making your wedding registry on Amazon sounds like a no-brainer, you can begin the process now:
Red Ray Coffee Roasters
Red Bay Coffee is at the forefront of what they believe is the fourth wave of coffee—a firm commitment to ensure coffee production is not only high quality and sustainable, but a vehicle for diversity, inclusion, social and economic restoration, entrepreneurship + environmental sustainability. What’s not to love? Quality coffee with all the thoughtfulness behind production! Pop a few bags into your registry, or buy their products online. We’re particularly loving these Ugandan pottery mugs.
And if you love podcasts as much as you love coffee, tune into Coffee Dojo – a show about the intersection of leadership, culture + creativity and bold outliers who are disrupting business as usual (hosted by Keba Konte, founder of Red Bay Coffee)!
What do you think about free, expert-level tea education? We’re in! Brooklyn Tea is of the highest quality – organic, and fair trade whenever available. As part of their mission, they provide free expert-level tea education in any community they serve. Add them to your universal Amazon registry, or shop their leaves now.
Maison Noir Wines
We’re always interested in sharing more great wineries! Maison Noir Wines is particularly special as it’s founded by sommelier André Hueston Mack. The wines are unique and distinctive garage wines, initially created for some of the New York’s best restaurants for whom Mack was a sommelier and now available nationwide! Shop or register for their unique wines, or their 1990s-inspired company apparel (or both!).
For The Home
