We want your submissions for a new Weddingbee article on your favorite wedding registry items.
Now that the honeymoon is over, it’s time to fill your home with all the goodies you received from the wedding. What item on your wedding registry turned out to be your favorite? Is it super useful in your everyday life or is it simply a daily reminder of that special day? We may feature your entry in an upcoming article.

Nice sheets!! And an ActiFry, we use it so much for lunch and dinners.

Our Breville Smart Oven, our Ninja Coffee Bar, and our outdoor grill! We got many great gifts but those are our favorites. Honorable mention goes to the robot vaccuum and all clad cookware 🙂 We use our favorites all the time.
Having been the bride, it taught me not to be afraid to buy a “boring” gift off the registry- a practical gift is much more exciting than another monogrammed robe or slippers 🙂

We loved our Vitamix — it’s so useful and something we can do together.

We used myregistry.com so we were able to include both honeymoon excursions and items from different stores, so my answer is kind of 2 sided. My nanny bought us special tourist passes for our honeymoon in Edinburgh and it was the most amazing experience. I probably would have bought them for the honeymoon anyways but it was great to be able to show her the pictures afterwards of what her gift gave us, memories! However, if I had to say an item, although lame sounding, I would say our spice rack! Did not know what I was missing until I got one… highly underrated, the organizational side of me loves it and we use it everyday!

For a lower priced item, we got an Misto olive oil sprayer, and when I first started filling it, I was like, why did I register for this, it’s so lame! Then the first time I sprayed it over my soon to be oven baked vegetables and didn’t have a glop of extra olive oil on the bottom of the pan getting wasted, I was like this is the best invention, EVER!
We ended up with quite a few gift cards – can’t wait to trade them in for a roomba. My life will be so much better when it comes in!

A few years back, I inherited my great grandmother’s china. I was happy to take it, because the pattern is gorgeous and timeless. However, it was incomplete – in her older years, my great grandma developed arthritis and dropped/broke several of the luncheon and dinner plates. We’re not sure if it ever had more pieces, like tea cups/saucers or bread or salad plates, or if it did and they all broke/got separated.
When my fiance and I got engaged, we decided to make the set our wedding china. We added all the missing pieces to our registry via Replacements.com. A few guests were initially confused as to why we had requested some items in unusual and varying quantities, like two luncheon plates and five dinner plates, but my mom explained that we were filling out a very old existing set, and they were happy to contribute. One friend even got us the (very rare) large platter.

The things I was most excited about on my registry were Le Creuset cookware and the formal china. Everything on my registry was nice to get, but a lot of stuff on there I would have eventually bought for myself if I didn’t receive it. The Le Creuset and the china were things I would never really have bought for myself but I’ve always wanted. Beautiful, functional, and special. Maybe I’m especially fond of the Le Creuset because my mother and grandmother both had it, and my mom at least got her set as a wedding gift; I suspect my grandmother did too. I’m looking forward to cooking a lifetime of meals in the Le Creuset and serving a lifetime of formal meals with the china.

Instant pot, corelle plates and bowls, and the pizazz (we make homemade pizza and this is so slick!).
