Go with a list of things that you really want, and things you would like. Also, don’t put something on your registry that you could care less about, but feel like you have to do it. Chances are, that will get bought and you will miss out on something you really wanted. I chose not to register for china because I am inheirting some from my grandmother, but my mom said that I should still register for some. I’m glad I didn’t because I know that some of the more traditional family members would have got that for us and it just would have been packed away and never been used. Also, have fun!!!

I’ve always heard its a good idea to register for things in a wide price range, so that guests have options when figuring out how much they want to spend. So just because something is $10 doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put it on your registry if you want it, because guests can mix and match a bunch of smaller/less expensive items. If you have only expensive things people might be more tempted to pick a gift out that is not on your registry that you don’t really want.

Decide ahead of time what color/themes you want in each room of your house. I DIDN’T do that, and now half the stuff I got for my wedding isn’t being used because it doesn’t match haha. 

I suggest browsing pinterest for some ideas if you’re lost 🙂 

Or register for some very neutral colored items that can be accented easily.

I would say, almost anything goes for a registry.

Anything kitchen related

Bathroom items



Office setup items

Furniture (some people put even the more expensive items so that they can use the completion discount on it)

Home accessories such as drapery rods and curtains, lighting, art, storage


Also don’t let a price deter you if you REALLY WANT IT. You’ll be surprised how much some people are willing to spend! Although, don’t register for “traditional” items just because they’re traditional (like a kitchenaid mixer, if you don’t bake).

And don’t worry if you can’t get it all done. Allot maybe two hours to do it, otherwise you get really tired and overwhelmed. I think we went like 4 different times to finish up or change things.
