With the large things like furniture I would say that you just have to go out and get something. The other stuff I would make a list and see if you can find things at discount stores. When FI and I moved in together we had very very little and we have just been making due and finding ways around some things. Like we do not have a toaster so we just make it in the frying pan or we do not have a microwave so we heat up leftovers in the oven.

Can you go with hand-me-downs and cheaper items for now?  Save yourself money and see what you can get from family and friends?  Then register for really nice, more permanent stuff?  We lived together for two years before we got married and we basically had odds and ends that we’d gotten from family and TJ Maxx.  Nothing matched and we didn’t have enough of anything, but it was fine.  Then we registered for matching sets of everything that we wanted to upgrade.  Good luck!

I say definitely get the furniture stuff that you need no, dining table, couch, and tv consol.  Use the one nightstand you have for the time being, and wait on getting a matching set until after the wedding.  I would say, towels and bathroom things, just use what you’ve got or get cheap stuff and register for nicer stuff.
