- Wedding: November 2012 - Oak Tree Manor
@subola: Here’s my food processor, which I LOVE. I originally registered for a small mini-prep food processor, but it turned out to just be too small to do much of anything, so I exchanged it for this larger one, and I’ve been really happy with it!
For Pyrex, I would highly recommend getting a set with lids – they are such a lifesaver! My Pyrex set came with several rectangular dishes (for lasagna, etc.), a square dish (casseroles), mixing bowls in 3 different sizes, and 2 round bowls for storage – and all came with plastic lids, which have held up well over the last 4 years! The set also came with a glass liquid measuring cup (I use it almost daily) and a pie dish. Shop around for Pyrex sets and find one that has everything that you need, there’s a lot of different Pyrex sets out there! (Mine was from Macy’s 4 Christmases ago…)
Do you have upgraded knives? I LOVE our Wusthof chef’s knife and use it every day.
Also, since you’re apartment dwellers, do you have a good set of tools? Like a great drill and drill bits, a set of screw drivers, etc.? Most of our friends didn’t get tools until they moved into houses, when they suddenly needed them all the time for projects. And they’re expensive, so you’d be glad you received them as a wedding present 🙂 (We have a set of tools that all fit in a manly-looking duffel bag, so they don’t take up that much space.)
And I wrote a blog post on registry regrets and our favorite registry items, hopefully it’ll help! Plus in the comments section a ton of bees chimed in on their favorite registry items. It sounds like you and your Fiance are already pretty established and have most of the things on my list, but maybe it’ll give you a couple ideas.
The main thing is to stick with what you really want, and don’t feel like you “have” to register for stuff – we registered for way less things than our number of guests/families invited to our wedding, and we got a lot of cash and gift cards that have been super helpful for fixing up our house.
