There are a lot of choices to be made when deciding on items for your wedding registry, and it can be overwhelming.

For the Kitchen

There are great items to put on your wedding registry for the kitchen. Especially if the married couple loves to cook.

Wedding Registry







Food Processor— A practical gift that will get tons of use–chopping vegetables, pureeing dates, making guacamole.

KitchenAid Stand Mixer–When we registered, I told my husband this was “too much,” and no one would buy it for us. He said we should put it on our registry anyways. And he was right. I have been blessed with the cheery buttercup mixer to help me whip up cakes, cookies, pancakes, pizza dough, and everything in between.

Immersion Blender –Perfect for use in soup and bisque to create a creamy texture or mix up a quick smoothie or hummus.

George Foreman Grill–If you didn’t get one in college or your bachelorette days, get one now! Ours has removable grill plates; we use them at least once a week to make burgers, grilled sandwiches, and chicken all year!

For the Home

Another great area for your wedding registry.

High-quality sheets–Register for one ridiculously expensive set of sheets and one nice but not as pricey. I love 450-plus thread count sheets. Anything less than that, I have a hard time sleeping.

Board Games–You may not think about it, but getting a couple of fun groups and one-on-one games is a great idea! Then you will be all set to host a game night or date night at your place! Some of our favorites are Sorry, Scrabble, and Clue.

Soft throw–I’m a sucker for a warm blanket to curl up while reading or watching movies. A big soft one is perfect for cuddling!

Something with Your New Initial–Whether a monogrammed door mat, beach towel, coffee cup, or galvanized letter for your new gallery wall, your new home needs something to represent your new life together!

For the Outdoors


This is an area you would probably not think about for your wedding registry.

Camp chairs–No matter what, you will probably want these–for extra seating at barbecues, baseball games, parades, or maybe to sub in until you get your couch delivered.

Basic Gardening Supplies–Rake, snow shovel, gardening gloves, hand trowel, hose–not things you think about, but they will definitely come in handy!

Basic tool kit–If your husband-to-be (or you, let’s not be sexist here) doesn’t have a set of tools, get a basic one to start out with. Even if he has some tools, he may not have everything you need or random things like an Allen wrench to set up all your Ikea furniture.

Wreath for your Front Door–Nothing says “Welcome Home” like a beautiful wreath on your front door!

Your wedding registry will be the guide your friends and family use to help you start off your new married life together. Make your choices thoughtfully and with a wide variety of price points. Consider what you will actually use and what is a novelty. Remember, you can always go back and edit your registry too!
