As far as wedding registries go, the best things to include are practical items that you’ll use time and time again. Believe us, you will be so thankful you asked for new vacuum once you have it! Plus, it’s one less thing you’ll have to worry about buying yourself which means more money for you and your hubby! So, to make things a little easier, we’re sharing our wedding registry must-haves and essentials with you, all items you’ll actually use and love long after the big day!

3 Tips Before you Register

1. Register Early

You might be surprised how early guests will start asking and checking your website to see where and what you’ve registered for. A lot of people like to plan far in advance for gifts, so try to get your registry up as soon as possible. It takes the guesswork out of gift buying for your guests. Don’t worry, if you don’t complete it right away, you can always update it along the way.

2. Hit All The Price Points

Register for item under $50, $75, $100, and beyond. That way all of your guests can choose what they feel comfortable to spend. Family members and friends sometimes tend to go in on the higher priced items together!

3. Do It Together

Set up a night where you and your fiancé have dinner, wine, and make a list of everything you want to register for. It can be so fun to do together and will get both of you excited for the future. You might find most of what you want online, but we also recommend taking a trip to a handful of home stores to see things in person.

Wedding Registry Must-Haves

Luxe Soap Set

Style your master or guest bathroom with a delightful duo soap set to cleanse and care for hands after each wash. Aesop celebrates the simple virtues of our daily routines with its much-loved skin care and body care products. Using a unique blend of both plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients of the highest quality

Wood Cutting Board

Butcher-block cutting boards make a great prep station that are aesthetically pleasing and translate well to the table. The rich color, square shape, and thickness of this butcher-block is super unique and adds a farmhouse touch.

Pots + Pans

You can’t go wrong with this cooking pan, it’s amazing quality, non-stick and non-toxic. The only other pot you might need is one like this for boiling water for pasta, etc.

Coffee Maker

If you’re an avid coffee drinker, then a premium coffee maker is a must! You can use it everyday instead of stopping at the local Starbucks drive-thru on your way to work. It’s a little bit of an investment so it’s a great item to include in your registry. Or, if you’re more of an espresso lover, the Nepresso Lattissima machine is cute and compact while still having many features.

Coffee Grinder

For the freshest cup of coffee, a grinder is a must! This particular grinder is super easy to use and holds more beans than others.

Milk Frother

For our chai and latte lovers, the Huogary Milk Frother is amazing! It makes the best foam and heats your milk up at the same time! The Zulay Handheld Foam Maker is also great for matcha or if you’re making an iced drink. You can choose to use no heat if you’re making a cold drink and want cold foam!


Making your own juice at home saves a ton of money, so it’s a great bang for your buck. The Breville Juicer is definitely the best! It takes a little bit of time to clean well, like most juicers but totally worth it.


If you’re a smoothie lover then you’ll love the Ninja Professional Blender. It’s also great for making frozen cocktails and margaritas!

Knife Set

Having a nice set of knives is truly life changing especially if you do a lot of at home cooking. If you’ve ever bought a cheap knife set then you know it’s no fun trying to cut something with a dull knife! Add these to your registry, they’ll last for years to come plus, how chic would they look on your kitchen counter?!

Towels + Sheets

You’d be surprised at what a difference good quality towels and sheets could make. They’re something you use everyday, so why not invest in a good set? Cariloha sheets, duvet cover, and towels are made from luxuriously soft bamboo-viscose fabric. They are super soft and amazing quality!

Air Purifier

This might sound boring, but trust us on this one! The Molekule Air Purifier works to remove allergens, dust, viruses and bacteria, as well as pollutants from the air. Nobody wants to breathe in toxic air, so add an air purifier to your registry.


No need to explain here! So many people can’t live without their Dyson Vacuum. This vacuum cleaner is not only incredibly lightweight, but it’s cordless feature is the way to go when it comes to vacuuming.


If you don’t have a matching set of dinner plates, then it’s a great thing to add to your registry to complete your kitchen. These Kolah Stoneware Plates are both rustic and refined bringing everyday elegance to the dinner table.


If you’re wanting to upgrade your flatware, then check out this sleek black and gold set from World Market. It’s different than most sets you see, but still chic and timeless.

Highball Glasses

Drinking glasses are definitely a kitchen necessity, these are perfect for an iced coffee, lemonade during the summer, or water.

Wine Glasses

You also can’t go wrong with a new set of wine glasses or champagne flutes. We love the dramatic look of these contemporary, straight edge wine glasses.

Wine Decanter

Let your bar cart stand out in serious style with a gorgeous wine decanter! Handmade carafe allows wine to breathe and pours like a dream when entertaining guests.

Coffee Mugs

We adore these simplistic Stoneware Mugs by Hearth & Hand from Target. Or, check out these Moderno Clear Glass Mugs, how fun and such a cool design!

Glass Straws

Clear straws are a must for iced coffee, juices, and smoothies, plus you can easily make sure they’re clean. They’re also thick enough to drink smoothies from!
