What Should You Include on Your Wedding Registry?


A wedding registry can be both exciting and terrifying. Obviously, it is fun to get gifts, especially ones that will help make your house together feel like a home…but it can also be stressful figuring out exactly what to include! Below, we’ve covered some of the most common things that you may want to include on your wedding registry.

Before we dive in, let’s go over a few tips that will help make the process of deciding what exactly you need a bit easier.


Go Room by Room

To make the task of creating your wedding registry a little more manageable, tackle each room one at a time. Start in your kitchen, and make a list of the things you think you might need or would like to replace. Move into your living room and do the same thing, and continue to move on from there! It’ll help you approach the task with a clearer mind if you aren’t jumping from room to room.


Share a Google Doc with Your Partner

If you and your partner don’t live together, it can be that much more stressful trying to figure out what exactly you’ll need. In order to take stock of what the two of you have, you can start a list that you both can edit, containing all of the home necessities you may have. This will help you get a better sense of what you need, what you can replace, and what you don’t need.


Keep Variety in Mind

You’ll want to include some bigger ticket items, as well as plenty of items that are more budget-friendly. This will help ensure none of your guests are put in an awkward situation when they can’t find anything that fits into their budget! A great way to ensure all guests are able to find an option that works for them is by including a cash fund for your honeymoon or your home. That way, guests can give you the exact amount that works for them.
