Good cookware! I’m not sure how much you cook, but if you haven’t already, do your research. I won’t touch non-stick for anything.

Yes, I agree with lily. No non-stick pans and pots!

in terms of cookware I don’t think you should register for a set.  Instead register for pieces – one good stainless pot or pan, one nonstick, one cast iron, etc.  Each item has it’s use.  But I find if you get a whole set of stainless then you might find yourself needing one nonstick someday and you won’t have it.

Also, let your guy hold the scanner gun and scan the items, it keeps them from getting bored.  

Register for things that look permanent, otherwise they are all going to go on clearance or be discontinued by the time of your wedding.  (ie. don’t register for things that are obviously stocked only for summer)

I disagree on the non-stick and I think my Fiance would too. They are a life-saver in the kitchen. Although the best ones we have gotten were from Fred Meyer. You only need/want non-stick for skillets and egg pans, not pots and don’t go near teflon or any black coated ones pretty much. They tend to peel off. Ours are silver non-stick and they work amazingly. Mostly don’t forget that it’s his registry and your registry. Don’t let it get too heavily weighted to one side or the other.

When you register, put yourself in the shoes of your wedding guests.  Most people are going to spend something in the range of $20 to $70 for your gift and they don’t want to wrap up a potholder and give it to you at the wedding (maybe the shower though).  Group little things together on the registry so that people can buy them quickly together… like pizza cutter, pizza board, bread basket, etc.  When you register for towels, group them by color and put them next to a clothes basket on the registry.  Chances are, someone will get you a clothesbasket full of towels if you do it that way.  Same thing for sheet sets… group together by color and include an appropreiate storage box near that list- that way a bunch of friends can chip in together and get your bed ensemble, put it in your storage box and it’s a “wrap”.  Look at small appliances and register for basics-  and according to your tastes, register for dishes, glasses and flatware.  I know a lot of people get carried away by the experience of registering and can’t resist adding non-traditional thngs like Wii’s, and this conversation is on the boards if you look for it.  My kids registered for a game and someone bought it for them yesterday- and they still have no flatware.  So, for what it’s worth, I’m not a fan of registering for nonessentials.  All these little piddly things add up to a lot of money, that you, the couple will have to pull out of your own pocket if you do not receive them as a gift.

As to cookware- not all nonstick is created equal.   I love my Circulon-  cooks as well as my Calphalon and is easier to clean.  In the next year, I will probably test a “green” pan too, to see how it performs.  Whatever the case, get something with a warranty and use it-
