I think it really depends on the couple and what you’ll use! I do think a lot of people in this day and age don’t pay as much attention to cooking tools, baking dishes, pots and pans, knives, etc, but if you don’t like cooking that’s understandable.

Don’t worry. You can always add stuff and you may get gift cards, too. The thing I had never thought of, but my friends persuaded me was important, was a digital meat thermometer.

We have lived together for a year, but when we went to register we were both suprised at how much stuff we still felt we wanted/needed. Neither of us really wanted to register for china but we will supposedly be glad we did later down the road…

We always need mixing bowls and serving bowls.

we already have a set of measuring cups, but are registering for another. we cook a lot, but the size we need always seems to be dirty. we had thought about registering for another digital thermometer since we dropped ours on the floor and broke it, but we couldn’t wait, and got one last weekend – so a definatle must have for me!

This is SO dependant on your interests as a couple!  But these are the things that I LOVED getting from our registry:

KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Cuisinart Food Processor

China especially Serving Dishes

GOOD pans (including one LARGE, DEEP saute pan and a Large Stock Pot)

Bedding (really nice, high thread count bedding)

A bar stocked full of wine glasses and decanters (we love to entertain)

Rugs!  You would never believe how expensive nice rugs are!

Really nice shower curtain and liner

A Monogrammed Christmas Tree Skirt with matching monogrammed stockings 🙂

Beautiful picture frames to display our wedding photos

ALSO: Things that are not as “big” or “special” but I use absolutely EVERY DAY:

High Heat spatulas, Stainless steel mixing bowls with non-skid bottoms, nice kitchen towels and finally – a couple really, really good knives

Just my 2 cents 🙂  Happy planning!

I would re-visit and take a look at the lists that were given to you to make sure you have everything you want covered.

Im sure you’ll get gift cards too so im sure whatever you forget on the registry you can get yourself.

Martha has a list on her website that helped me focus on what we needed. 

We requested a few nice throw blanks, cookbooks, area rugs, serving untensils (like pie server, large serving spoon, etc), extra sheets and then upgraded a lot of what we have like better mixing bowls, china, every day dishes, etc.

Here’s an article from a while back that you might find useful about stocking a kitchen:  http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/09/dining/09mini.html.  The writer is at a cheap restaurant supply store and isn’t too focused on the quality or look of his pieces, but it’s a good round-up of what things you’ll use and what you probably won’t.

As a couple of people mentioned, if you’re just starting out you might want to register for holiday decor (like stockings and Christmas tree skirt, as an example)…however, those kinds of things are usually seasonal so you might not be able to include them.

I left off furniture because I thought that was too expensive to ask for, but to my surprise, a couple of family members have asked why I didn’t include anything like that, and requested that I add some things! I’m not going to do anything super expensive, but probably will add a headboard for my bed, a bedside table, and maybe a nice chair. If you don’t get these items, you can buy them yourself with gift certificates/wedding money using the completion discount.
