Guide for the New Homemaker: Your Wedding Registry

When preparing for your upcoming wedding, one of your to-do’s is to compose your wedding registry, and oh what a fun time this is! I’ve learned some things now that I wish I knew back then, so I thought I could leave you with some wedding registry preparation tips.

Firstly, try to keep your registry as minimal as possible. Stick to the essentials first and foremost. The cute but unnecessary decorative milk bottles can wait.

So what do you actually need when starting your home? Think through your future living situation and assess what is essential to your homemaking. No dishwasher? Then a dish drying rack is a must. Not much of a baker (like, you rarely ever bake brownies)? Then you don’t need to register for a top of the line five-speed stand mixer.

Kitchen Essentials:

  • Simple dishes – white dishes will never go out of style
  • Flatware
  • Cutlery – stainless steel or silver
  • Knives
  • Pots & Pans – stainless steel
  • Stainless Steel Sheet Pans
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Colander
  • Cast-Iron Skillet – can be used on the stovetop or in the oven
  • Sturdy Glass Tumblers – can hold water water, milk, and wine
  • Wooden Cutting Board
  • Dish scrubbing brushes
  • Dish Towels
  • Cloth Napkins
  • Afterwards, think about what other appliances and kitchen tools are important to you: Are you a coffee or tea drinker? Do you absolutely love and need a toaster? Then, add those items to your registry.
