SHOP MY WEDDING REGISTRY CHECKLIST:

Our wedding day is just around the corner (only 38 days!), and I can’t believe it’s so close! I feel like I just announced to y’all that I was engaged, and now we’re almost ready to say “I do”!

For those of you that have gotten married recently (or anytime really), you know that saying “yes” to that proposal comes with a lot more work than you ever knew!

In all the best ways, being engaged is a lot of work! You have to plan the wedding, pick the bridesmaids dresses, decide on your dress, wedding colors, location, food…the list seems never-ending.

To add to that, you also have to come up with a wedding registry for those that want to buy you gifts! This is both of our second weddings, so we aren’t registering for anything, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have some of these on our list to get ourselves. : )

I always found a wedding registry to be so daunting. When you are starting this new life together with your husband-to-be, you have no idea of what you need and knowing where to start can be really challenging!

So I wanted to make that a little easier for those of you who may be going through this right now. I’ve assembled a list of just about everything you might want to think about putting on your wedding registry checklist!

The beauty of this wedding registry checklist is that you can totally make it your own. Take what you like and leave what you don’t!

A Complete Wedding Registry Checklist:

Kitchen Electrics

The things that make our lives run so much smoother and more efficiently!

  • Blender
  • Hand mixer
  • Stand mixer
  • Coffee maker
  • Slow cooker
  • Toaster
  • Toaster oven
  • Can opener

Tableware

These things might not come out everyday but having them for all of those occasions when you’d want to pull them out is really nice!

  • Tablecloths
  • Place mats
  • Napkins
  • Napkin holders

Knife Sets

Never underestimate a really good knife! I’ve had too many bad knives in my life, and now I know better!

  • Knife block
  • Kitchen shears
  • Knife sharpener
  • Steak knives
  • Chef’s knife
  • Pairing knife
  • Utility knife

Dinnerware

I think that a set of 8 is always a safe move!

  • Dinner plates
  • Salad plates
  • Cereal bowls
  • Salad bowl
  • Butter dish
  • Serving trays
  • Serving bowls
  • Salt and pepper shakers
  • Fine china

Glassware

Some of these aren’t necessary if you’re not big drinkers. But I definitely think that always having at least a couple beer mugs and wine glasses on hand is a good idea!

  • Coffee mugs
  • Casual glasses
  • Beer mugs
  • Highballs
  • Shot glasses
  • Champagne flutes
  • Wine glasses.

  • Pot
  • Dutch oven
  • Griddle
  • Casserole dishes

For the many cookies, cakes, muffins and brownies you are sure to make at some point!

    I’ve been married for almost a year, but my home is still missing 80% of these things because we’re in a townhome and don’t have the space – especially when it comes to kitchen items, that’s for sure. But it’s an awesome round-up of necessary products to own!

  6. Lee

    Such great ideas! I love the home decor picks!

  7. Kileen

    This is such an amazing registry!! I can’t believe how fast the time has gone either, 38 days is so close!! So exciting!

  8. Ashley Hargrove

    I seriously should have glanced at a list or even tried making a list of what all we needed in the house when I got married. We are missing so many things we could have registered for!

  9. Darleen

  11. Laura Adney

    You definitely have the ultimate registry!! When we got married years ago we relied on the retailers we registered at to help us make sure we had everything we would need on our registry. We still haven’t gotten everything but we have what we really need and then some!

    xo, Laura

    Such a great list! Going to share this with my sis who is engaged.
