3 Reasons You Should Include a Bigger Mattress on Your Wedding Registry

June9_Blog_640x400

Your wedding is just around the corner, and you’re slowly but surely checking through your mile-long to-do list. One of the most exciting things to do before the big day is to think through all the things you and your future spouse will need to equip your new life together. From dishes and flatware to towels and sheets, it can seem like there are infinite things worth adding to your registry.

3 Reasons You Should Include a Bigger Mattress on Your Wedding Registry


One item that is frequently left off of wedding registries is a new mattress. You’re about to start a new life together, and that includes a lifetime of sleeping in the same bed. You’ll spend significantly more time with your mattress than anything else you might put on your wedding registry, so don’t overlook it.

Maybe you or your fiancé (or both) already have a mattress that you plan on using. But really, a king-sized mattress is the ideal size, giving you both plenty of room to stretch out, and it’s always better to choose something together than have to sleep on a mattress that someone else brought to the relationship. There’s just no reason to wait to get the bed that you want, because your budget always stretches further at Mattress Firm.

Start your marriage off on the right side (and size!) of the bed.

1. Find a bed that suits you both.

When you purchased your current mattress, you were likely only considering what was best for your personal sleep health. Now that there’s two of you to consider, it’s the perfect time to assess each other’s sleep habits and find a new mattress so both of you can sleep comfortably every night. Not sure how to shop for a bed for two? Check out this  post for some mattress buying tips on how to shop for a bed as a couple.

2. Go bigger.

With two of you squeezing into one bed, it’s likely a great time to  size up. Did you know that a queen size bed leaves you less sleeping space than if you were sleeping on a twin-size mattress? You’ll have to get accustomed to sharing your bed with another person, so try a king mattress set to make things easier and more comfortable for both you and your new spouse. Getting a bigger mattress will allow you both to have plenty of room to sprawl out in your favorite sleep positions.

3. Invest in your future rest.


By getting a new mattress at the beginning of your marriage, you’re  investing in quality sleep for years to come. You’ll have a fresh, comfortable mattress that meets both of your sleep needs allowing you both to get your best night’s sleep from night one.

Being a newlywed is an exciting time for you and your partner. You’re about to share a lifetime of beautiful moments, including those intimate moments right before you fall asleep each night. As you’re thinking through everything you need to make your new marriage a success, don’t forget about your mattress.
