Wedding Registries can be tricky business and can sometimes be a downright hassle. I’ve compiled a few must-have registry items and registry tips to try to make the process a bit easier and to help my brides focus on the items they will really need and use. Check ’em out!

First, make sure you register for a few or those practical items. Non-stick cookware and bakeware are invaluable and will save you a ton of time scrubbing away at the sink after meals. Also invest in a great can opener and garlic press. Those items can get a lot of use and if you don’t shop high quality for these, the wear and tear will cause you to have to throw it out in a year.

Second, every couple needs to equip their kitchen with just the right appliances. Keep in mind you might not use all of these items the first week of your marriage, but as the years roll by, I promise you will be happy your registered for these!
