Wedding Registry - What To Register For And What You Don’t Actually Need

Yes, please!

  • Blender 

From soups, to smoothies, and dips, make sure to register for a one-size-fits all blender that has many functions.

  • Coffee machine

Because first, coffee.

  • Invest in a Dutch oven

It’s one of the most versatile kitchen appliances.

  • Napkins

Register for nice yet machine washable everyday napkins to replace your paper napkins and paper towels you are currently using.

  • Flatware and china that coordinates and works well together from a utilitarian standpoint

There is nothing worse than forks and knives that constantly fall off your coupe china when clearing the table. Give your table settings a test run to make sure they gel together.

  • Extra wine glasses

They will break often!

  • A cordless drill

Probably more useful than most kitchen pieces.

  • Luggage

A registry item you will never regret. Make sure to do extensive research, however, on the best brands available for you and your fiancé.

  • Picture frames

Select some nice picture frames to display your wedding photos in.

  • A carving set

A set of great and effective knives should definitely be on your wedding registry list. Knives are one of those things that you will not want to buy yourself but will use every day.

  • Basic cookware set 

Again, basic kitchen needs are always a yes.

Maybe we don’t need..

  • Skip the fine china

Pick out really unique yet practical china that you will actually use everyday.  We have heard from countless brides (including ourselves) that they wished the had asked for more everyday pieces than fancy china.

  • Reconsider the juicer

Most take up a lot of space and are very cumbersome to clean.

  • Don’t get too excited by the fancy panini maker or crepe machine

While they seem fun, you won’t use them enough to warrant space in your cabinets.

  • Specialty glasses

Unless you’re constantly entertaining, how many margarita and specialty beer glasses do you actually need?
