I’ve been having a hard time with our registries… We’ve got a white wedding with about 120, then a Buddhist ceremony with about 130. I did a BBB registry and can only come up with about 37 items. I also did a little honeymoon registry for separate meals and spa services, but everything else is covered.
What else should I register for???? my BBB registry is mostly kitchen stuff, with a countertop rotisserie and bedding as our big items.
Help!!! What did you register for?

Mine fall basically into the category of kitchen and bedding as well. Do you have towels on there? I figure that’s something you can always stand to upgrade. I have put on a ton of new baking pans as I love baking and again, I figure I can upgrade (my muffin pans, for example, are pretty old and scuzzy). I also have things like silicon spatulas (again, those get old and nasty pretty quickly) and various spoons, silicon hot pads, lots of Pyrex and other storage containers (I’d love to throw out some of my old plastic containers and have something that’s safer to microwave in). Oh, an iron, a fancy blow dryer, a new electric razor for him… a nice shower curtain and bath mats… some fancy picture frames because we can always use those for wedding pictures and I’d never buy Kate Spade picture frames… a fancy rice cooker…
PM me if you want to look at my registries for inspiration. I don’t have one at BBB but I’m sure they have similar stuff. We also did an Amazon one that I’ve put tons of cookbooks on them, because I love cookbooks, and to which Fiance has added his electronics desires. 🙂

You can always register upgrades of things you already own. Towels and bedding are usually good candidates. Cookingware and china or everyday dishes are another possibility.
You can find some good registry checklists from Macys or the Knot can help you come up with ideas.
If all else fails, find a store with a good return policy and register for items that you can take back for cash/gift cards.

Another item I though of the other day while using–do you have an immersion blender (aka a stick blender)? I love mine and wonder how I used to make soup without it. It’s so much easier to puree the soup while it’s still in the original pot rather than trying to transfer it over to a regular blender without burning yourself. And as a bonus, they are not expensive, so something you could put on a registry with no guilt.
