As your special day approaches, many friends and family members will begin asking you about your wedding registry and the items you have selected! Wedding registries are an important aspect of a wedding as it provides your guests with several ideas and items that will eventually become a part of your future home!
Whereas Many couples still choose to visit the popular sites in person (Macy's, Crate and Barrel, Bed Bath & Beyond etc), as they are typically presented with the official scanner to add items to their registries, Some couples are now taking advantage of the stores' online registry system to update and create their own!
Here is a list of the top 5 items we suggest to include in your wedding registry:
1.) Full Sets of Dining Flatware Silverware (make sure to also include the "hostess serving set" for the larger silver serving spoons and forks!)
2.) Complete Dinner Sets! This is your chance to finally get those matching dinner plates, salad plates, cereal bowls, coffee mugs and saucers you have always wanted!
3.) 16-18 Piece Cookware Sets! Your matching set of pots and pans for your new home is just a click away!
4.) Crock Pot! Who doesn't love homemade meatballs and soups? Make sure to also include a slow cooker/ crock pot cookbook on your registry!
5.) Luggage Sets! Don't forget to scan/click on a luggage set for the two of you to share! This is a great thing to have for not only your upcoming honeymoon but any future trips you will take together as a married couple!
If you and your fiancé are looking for something a little different for your special day, be sure to visit the Travelers Joy website and add it to your list of registries! This website is a great way for your guests to help make your honeymoon a memorable one by purchasing activities for you to do from snorkeling and horseback riding along the ocean to a romantic dinner at a beautiful restaurant!
