This is kind of a silly question – what what did you register for in terms of bedding?
I’m getting my bedding from Pottery Barn, and all the examples they have of their (gorgeous) beds include like, 10 layers – I want a cozy bed, but I don’t want to buy $1K of linens to achieve this!
So what “layers” do you all have for your beds? We registered for sheets and a gorgeous quilt, but I’m trying to decide about adding a down comforter/duvet, or just a basic blanket…help! I’m obviously clueless!

Pottery Barn makes you want to invest $1,000+ in a gorgeous 10 layer bed!
We have a queen sized bed so we have 2 euro shams, 2 standard shams, sheets, a coverlet, and then a comforter (or duvet + cover). Because of how the bottom of our bed is we don’t need a bed skirt but that might be something that you want/need.
We also have a throw blanket at the end + a couple of decorative pillows. Be sure to get an extra set of sheets too 🙂

I think it is all a matter of preference! I have flannel sheets, a down alternative comforter, a quilt, and a fleece blanket on my bed. I just base it on what keeps me warm and cozy! And I wish I was there right now…. *sigh*.

First of all, I think it depends on how warm you want your bedding and what kind of climate you live in! We live in ND and it gets COLD up here (even at night in the summer), so we have a down comforter, duvet to cover the comforter, flat sheet, fitted sheet for the mattress & pillowcases and that is plenty for us! I’m a sucker for a really soft, heavenly bed, so we opted for a big, fluffy down comforter instead of a basic quilt or blanket.

our registry is at target, but I didn’t like any of their bedding. So when my shower came around, and some people who were closer to me asked what I REALLY wanted, I told them about the bedding set I really wanted, which is at Pottery Barn. Someone ended up giving me a gift card to buy the duvet. But I’ll still have to pay for the down/duvet, which we’ll probably just use some wedding money.
So basically I’ll just be getting the duvet, duvet cover and a few shams, but nothing really extravagant, and it’s through Pottery Barn but it won’t be more than a hundred. (Duvet cover is only $79 for a queen!)

I agree with hsearle! I think a lot of it depends on where you live. I live in Maine and it is cold a lot here too… Like she said, it can even be cold at nights during the summer! Hence the flannel sheets, extra blankets, etc 🙂

On my bed I have:
bed skirt (AKA dust ruffle)
3 coordinating throw pillows
….In the summer I need the blanket b/c I like my room cold when I sleep. In the winter I don’t use a blanket b/c I have the heat on. Sounds backwards but it works for me

i’ve got sheets and a duvet. thats pretty much it. oh, and a lightweight quilt for summer since i don’t use air conditioning.
