Crate & Barrel is throwing two parties this month to entice local brides-to-be and their fiances to plan their new home together.

The store at Easton Town Center is hosting Wedding Parties this Saturday (Oct. 17) and next (Oct. 25) from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The store closes to all other customers during the event, allowing couples to consult with design experts and register for gift items uninterrupted, said Michael Merrill, floor manager. The free event also features food, drinks, music—and a gift.

RSVP by calling 614-475-7428. Merrill suggests calling soon to grab one of several remaining spots. If you miss out, another round of registry parties is planned for February or you can register during regular store hours instead.
