Must Have Wedding Registry Items!

You're almost ready to mail out your invitations, which means it's time for one of the most exciting steps of your wedding planning process: creating your gift registry! This is best done by both you and your fiance together; not only should you get an equal say in what gifts you want to receive as a couple, but it builds excitement for your future home and life together. 

Your wedding registry should reflect who you are as a couple. Now is the time to start thinking about what type of decor you want to have in your future home, what sort of appliances you want to use, etc. 

The team at WhereBridesGo.com wants to make sure you have the best wedding registry ever, so we put together this list of tried-and-true registry items you won't want to forget! We hope you find it helpful.


Kitchen Items
Nearly every couple knows to register for kitchen appliances, such as toasters, blenders, and food processors, but don't forget about the other myriad of everyday kitchen items! Don't underestimate the value of a high-quality set of knives - or even something as simple as silverware. 

Cleaning Supplies
They may not be glamorous, but you'll probably get way more use out of your vacuum or duster than special-occasion-only china dinnerware. You want to be excited about the items on your registry, but some practical gifts will always come in handy!

Year-Round Home Materials
Don't limit yourself to the season your wedding happens to take place in. You may be getting married in the summer, but you're still going to need a snow shovel when winter rolls around. Try to plan ahead for your needs all year long.

Organization Tools
Spice racks, storage bins, under-the-counter racks... Never underestimate the power of organization materials. Registering for these items can be challenging if you don't know the layout of where you'll be living after you get married, but give it your best shot!

Bedding
Now is the time to treat yourself! Register for a brand new set of sheets, a comforter, pillows, shams, and plenty of extra blankets. 

Your Wish List
The wedding registry is the perfect opportunity to get help procuring all the items couples need to set up their new homes together, but it's okay to have some fun with your registry, too! Board games, sports equipment, movies, camping supplies... Why not register for the items you and your fiance will love and use on a regular basis?

Looking for an alternative wedding registry? Nowadays, couples are building all kinds of unique wedding registries, such as...
  • Honeymoon Fund
  • New Home Fund
  • Charity Donations

What do you think? If you have more ideas for alternative wedding gift registries or if you think of another gift every couple should include on their registry, we'd love to hear about it. 

Have fun building your wedding registry!!

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
