Your wedding registry checklist

Choosing items for your wedding registry is a fun but tiring task, so we’ve done some of the hard work with this list of suggested items. Larger items like a refrigerator and washing machine aren’t on this list, as we’ve stuck to smaller, more affordable items.

Remember that this is your chance to furnish your new home together just as you wish, so take your time when choosing color schemes and styles.

If you already share a home, then use this as a chance to replace items that you will be pleased to see the back of (can’t wait to say goodbye to that comforter you had when you were still at college?), or to receive more luxurious, non-essential items that you have always coveted. How about a picnic basket for romantic picnics in the park, or the latest board games for those long winter nights by the fire?
