As Iâ€™ve been preparing for this yearâ€™s run of the summer wedding gauntlet, Iâ€™ve noticed a pattern: Crate & Barrelâ€™s cold beverage jar with stand, $49.95, has been on every single registry Iâ€™ve looked at. I love everything beverage dispensers stand for: summer parties, cocktails, refreshing drinks! But never have I actually attended an event where Iâ€™ve seen one in action. Yes, considering the trend the reason could lie in the fact that the friends that would have the type of soiree that calls for one havenâ€™t received them yet, but still, this item seems to be a popular one for these summer registries. It also calls to mind Anthropologieâ€™s designer version, $298, but with its equally Anthropologie price tag, my summer drink serving needs are best left to the registry specialists at Crate & Barrel. What do you think, readers? Any other hot registry items to keep on the radar? Did you ask for a beverage dispenser, and if so, do you use it? — Sarah C.
