What would you add to a "wedding registry"?

I'm racking my brain about what to add to a "wedding registry". One of my sisters didn't register anywhere and wound up with 5 toasters, no joke, so I feel compelled to register. I have a few things on my registry (e.g., rowenta iron, milwaukee cordless drill, and luggage), but I don't know what else to register for.

So what would you ask for?


  1. We registered for pottery, new towels, new sheets, new silverware, new pots and pans, and all sorts of stuff at Home Depot. We didn't register for china, crystal or silver.

    Our pottery place settings are so awesome! I love that every plate we eat off of is handmade! Of course, the plates cost like $38 each, but hey, less stuff you have to register for if some people will just be buying you one plate!

  2. How about a George Foreman grill for inside grilling, toaster oven, or whatever you think you can use. Most people give $$$$ so just register for a few things like I did.

  3. you could register somewhere untraditional. we registered at anthropologie and loved it. you could always register at a garden place...

  4. Breed and Co. has a pretty great selection of houseware, gardening, and hardware items. I think they still offer a registry. Price range is wide, too.

  5. Lots of wonderful stuff at Crate and Barrel/Pottery Barn/Bed Bath & Beyond and Williams-Sonoma (good kitchen knives a must ... and how about a Cuisinart Food Processor). Have fun :)
