For some couples, the idea of compiling items for a wedding registry can seem like a daunting task; and for others, the thought of finding products for their future home and life together is an exciting part of the wedding-planning process. No matter which end of the spectrum you and your fiancé fall on, chances are you may need some advice when it comes to selecting which items to register for, and which can be left off the registry.
These days, modern couples are registering for the classics – think small kitchen appliances, china, dinnerware and barware, etc. – as well as more unique items, including honeymoon experiences, furniture, and products that couples do not typically get excited to purchase for themselves, including steamers, vacuums, and luggage. Many Inside Weddings couples look to retailers such as Bloomingdale's and Crate and Barrel for traditional, must-have items, as well as seek the expertise from staff at high-end stores such as Gearys for crystal and specialty items that will last a lifetime, or well-known brands including Villeroy & Boch for china. Other brides choose to take the online registry route and browse items across the web.
To discover the most popular wedding registry items, we combined a number of highly requested wedding registry items from Inside Weddings couples with additional products requested by brides and grooms using Blueprint Registry, a website that allows engaged couples to create an organized registry based on the layouts of their homes. The free site offers the chance to design "blueprints" of their abodes and decorate each room with quality products from various designers and retailers.
