Registry Must-Haves


Registering is one of the most fun tasks on any wedding planning to-do list. Going to stores and choosing things for your new home together is exciting and can melt away the stress of other aspects of planning.

However, even the most diligent bride and groom will tell you that there are things they wish they had registered for.

Even if you don’t think someone will buy you these items, put them on your registry anyway. Most retailers offer a discount on un-bought registry items.

Here’s what you need to know:

KITCHEN KNIVES
The best investment you can make in your kitchen is in high-qual- ity knives. Think knives that don’t come in a set. This allows you to choose individual knives that meet your needs and mix and match brands.

A QUALITY VACUUM CLEANER
It is time for a serious vacuum. Higher-end vacuums also frequently come with manufacturer warranties — so when it goes on the fritz you should be able to get it repaired or replaced.

A DUTCH OVEN
This universal kitchen item is a lifetime lifesaver. It can go from stovetop to oven to grill, is great for soups and braising meats, and can be substituted at any time for other cookware pieces, should you choose or need to.

IRON OR STEAMER
Ironing is a basic skill that every- one should know. If the task seems too time-consuming, go for the steamer. This handy tool takes wrin- kles out of clothing without making contact with the fabric.

BATH TOWELS
Even if you and your fiance currently live together and have towels, register for new ones — nicer ones. Quality towels can be pricey and not necessarily something you will want to invest in later. Plus, you will find that good bath towels get softer with use rather than nubby and coarse.

LUGGAGE
Luggage is a great registry item because it is often expensive and most high-end lines on the market have a lifetime guarantee. Don’t forget, you will most likely be using it soon on your honeymoon.

RUGS
Items for your home together make great registry items, but these pieces are often overlooked. Rugs bring both a “homey” feeling and put-together look to a room. However, they are expensive — so let someone else splurge for you.

FUN GEAR
This could be camping gear, water sport accessories — whatever your hobbies are. Many couples are choosing to set up “honeymoon registries,” where they register for excursions or add-ons that guests can purchase to enhance the couple’s trip.
