The Registry

The 14 Different Glasses. “If I need a cheat sheet to tell me which glass to serve what type of alcohol in, it’s not worth my time. I get by with few nice wine glasses, versatile everyday glasses, and of course, a few fun martini glasses!”—Editor Carolyn Lasako.

The Juicer. Every wedding season, there is a particularly trendy item that brides- and grooms-to-be feel pressured to request (or purchase with monetary gifts). Right now, that item is the $400 juicer. If you are into juicing and find yourself often wishing you had one, by all means, put it on your registry. But if you’re just caught up thinking, “Hey, I could get into drinking a lot of juice,” you may want to reconsider.

The Ice Cream Maker. Don’t get us wrong—an ice cream maker can be a fantastic treat—even a good investment for the ice cream lover. But consider these two things: First, will you really make it? And second, is there an attachment for the mixer you registered for that will do the same thing, and also cost less and require less space?


So what registry items are brides reporting to be their most prized?

The KitchenAid Stand Mixer. There’s little you can’t do with a stand mixer and one of its many attachments. They last forever and this brand has withstood the test of time—almost 100 years. In fact, we bet your mom, maybe even her mom, received one on their wedding day.

The Dyson Vacuum. Can you get by without one? Absolutely. But those who have them say nothing else compares.

Tupperware. It’s not that you can’t buy it on your own, it’s just that you won’t want or you won’t remember to—and you’ll constantly wish you had. Buying Tupperware isn’t super fun, but having it is super convenient. You’ll be ever thankful for the person who gave it to you.

Quality Sheets and Towels. Again, no fun to buy, but wonderful to have. The better the quality of your sheets and towels, the more glamorous you’ll feel day to day. So be sure to select the best you can find—you’ll be thankful later.
