You can always register for electronics, like cameras, camcorders, tv, dvd player, etc.  You can also register for things like lamps, mirrors, towels, bedding, dining linens, other kitchen accessories (cake pans, spatulas, utensils…).

If the china is still in production you can see if there are new serving pieces available. Older patterns usually have pretty varied and interesting soup tureens, bowls, platters, etc. Ditto for the silverware. You could also register for a pretty tablecloth to go with the china. I think it is super sweet of you to want to thank your in-laws. Maybe if they live nearby you could invite them over to a dinner party so they can see you use your new china? If they live far away maybe just a sweet thank you note would be perfect.

What tops my registry wishlist?

A mandolin (the slicer, not the instrument)

Board games

Soup and Sandwich trays from Uncommon Goods

Lots of fluffy warm towels!

Do you already have all the little kitchen things?  Everyday dishes and glasses?  Also, house stuff like bedding, towels, and sheets are always good.  If you are having showers, you should try to have a bunch of little things for people to buy for those.

Maybe for the grandparents you should take them out to dinner or something?  That is more than just a thank you note present I think!

I think the electronic things are fairly “modern” in wedding registries, but I’ve definitely heard of it before.  We even registered for Wii accessories. 

We have board games on ours too, GaBGal!

I wrote on your blog. Bake and send them cookies. Homebaked (even if from a mix), is a nice touch. Older people just want sweets.

That’s amazing!!!!

If I were you, I would register for really good 18/10 flatware for everyday. I would probably get great everyday dishes too in porceline or stoneware.

11-14 cup cuisinart

Kitchenaid mixer

Turkish Cotton Towels

High thread count sheets (like 600!)

Riedel or Eisch Decanter

Cuisinart Mini Prep

Cuisinart Emulsifier

Really Good Knives: Chefs, Boning, Paring, and Bread from Wustof or Global

Table Linens


Breville Convection Toaster Oven

Really High End Espresso Machine

Cusinart Coffee Maker

Le Creuset French Oven in 3 quart and 6 quart

All Clad Pots and Pans

All Clad Roasting Pan

Copper bowl for eggs

Carbon Steel 14″ Wok

Kapoosh Knife Block

Silicon Oven Mits

Cupcake Carrier

If you go to Bed Bath and Beyond, a sales associate will walk you through the whole store and help add things you may want.

If I were you, I guess that I would still have things to get…those are my favorite kitchen things. 🙂

Good luck! I can’t believe you have ALL of your china, crystal, and REAL Silverware!!!! Yayayayayayay! I don’t even know you and I am SOOOO happy for you that this happens in the world. Aaah blessings everywhere!

One more thing to register for:

Picture frames!

I got my wedding photos back and I had no where to put them. The frames in Macys and Bloomies are so beautiful: Martha, Vera, Kate, but sooo expensive. Register for the ones that have the 5×7 double for the invitation and the photo. Get an 8×10 too. I wish that I had registered for that.

Registering for electronics like TVs and DVDs player is not common or traditional… but that’s because typical wedding registries are at places that don’t carry things like that. I’ve seen it on registries for people who’ve registered at Target and Amazon.com (or similar); obvs it’s not on a Macy’s or Williams Sonoma registry. 🙂

I’d register for everyday dishes and glasses if you need them, and definitely pots, pans and kitchen appliances. Linens (bed and bath), games, etc. Anything you need or want for your home is fair game. 🙂

If you want to make the china pattern a little more “you” you can register for accent plates in a different pattern that change the look.  We ended up registering for a plain china pattern and then 3 different sets of very different accent plates that allow us to totally change the look.  I used to work for a china company so I’m a little obsessed and was able to get a lot of pieces at ridiculous prices but the accent plates would be a great option for anyone who already has or is inheriting china.  Just bring a dinner plate and maybe a bread & butter plate to the store with you and mix and match with accent plates from different patterns.  You might find something that looks great that is more you.  Good Luck!

Mr. Library and I have also looked into things that we like to do together and what we might like to do on our honeymoon.  We have a honeymoon registry (these have worked really well for my cousins who have gotten married!) and have registered for things like a tent, bicycles, board games, etc.  Are they traditional?  No.  Will we use them?  Absolutely!
