All of your guests will be looking for special way to congratulate you, so one of the nicest things you can do is to give them a breadth of options to choose from. When thinking of how many items to put on a registry, plan on two or three items per guest. Be sure to consider a range of budgets and price points.
Think Beyond The Basics
A good set of cookware is an obvious wedding registry item. But to really make the most of your registry, expand into other areas of your home - and your life. Consider registering for sheets, towels and furniture.
Plan For The Future
Think about the things you'll use everyday, of course, but think about what you'll need going forward too. Hoping to host Thanksgiving for both of your families together, or to have friends over for cocktails in your new place? Register accordingly.
Your mom had a Dutch oven and now it is your turn. Good cookware is core to the success of your kitchen so choose pieces from materials that will last a lifetime. Stainless steel and enameled cast iron pots and pans are never are bad choice, especially from well known brands.
Think of all the homemade birthday cakes and holiday cookies you are going to make over the years. You will need the full baking arsenal - cake pans, sheet pans, brownie pans and more.
Knives & Prep Tools
Good knives are expensive and you won't want to buy them on your own. Now's your chance to get really great knives that will make a huge difference over the years. The basics include a chef's knife, serrated knife, paring knife and steak knife.
Dinner Party Basics
Holuday dinners, friends and family gathering for birthdays and parties. Don't forget to register for all your party needs. Serving platters, bowls, cheese boards and linens should all be on your list.
Pasta makers, juicers, waffle markets, stand mixers are all expensive items that make cooking, eating and entertaining super fun. Make sure to register.
Even when it is just the two of you at the table, you'll still need the right dishes, place settings and cuttlery to make a meal work. Don't forget to add the daily essentials like dinner plates, salad plates, place mats and everyday forks and knives.
Don't Forget Sheets & Towels
Yes, you'll need new ones and they make perfect registry gift ideas. Make them truly your own with a personalized monogram.
Having a well-stocked bar means having the right glassware and tools for different drinks: white and red wine glasses, tumblers, highball glasses, muddlers, strainers and of course water glasses.
Dish towels, storage bins, ironing boards and trash cans may not be the most glamorous items but you'll use them every day to keep home nice and clean.
The Little Extras
It's the little things - like measuring cups, spatulas, tongs and vegetable peelers - that round out your kitchen and make you a more efficient cook. Plus, it's a good idea to have a range of prices in your registry and these are generally on the lower end.
