The best part of planning a wedding is not deciding the flowers, the cake, or choosing your venue. The best part is filling out your wedding registry.

Who wouldn’t love to furnish guests with a customized list of things you’d like them to give you? In return, they’re getting a lovely ceremony, a reception, and a fabulous meal.

So here’s a list of 37 wedding registry ideas to inspire you when you’re making your own.

1.Personalised Cutting Board

There’s nothing quite as charming as a wooden butcher’s block cutting board. Nothing that is, except a personalized cutting board.

You can pick from a selection of sizes and four choices of wood: walnut, arched maple, and cherry. Then, spell out your last name(s)—hyphenated or otherwise—and you’ve got a nice wedding or housewarming gift on your registry!

2. Enamel Cast Iron Pot

You can’t ever have enough pots and pans around the kitchen. Le Creuset Dutch oven cast-iron pot is not just a pot but a permanent fixture in a new kitchen.

If you can, you should list this pot out more than once, in different colors and sizes. It’s your registry list, isn’t it?

3. Countertop Mixer

There’s something so wonderful about countertop mixers. Tucked into a corner, they’re a kitchen staple and a must-have when you’re setting up your very own kitchen.

KitchenAid’s the mother of all countertop mixers, and there’s nothing you can say or do that’ll change my mind. They’re effective, efficient, and the lift-bowl design offers support and easy access.

If that isn’t reason enough, just think of how shiny and glossy it would look on your counter!

4. Instant Pot Multi-Purpose Cooker

When you’re just setting up a kitchen, it can be overwhelming—and expensive—to figure out what you need and then buy a bunch of appliances at one go.

An instant pot is a wonderful gift to put on your registry.  But, it’s not just any old instant pot. This is a multi-purpose appliance.

That means they have a pressure cooker, a rice cooker, cake maker, saute functions, and more, all in one single stainless-steel package.

This is the one-stop appliance to most of your cooking needs, all in one single, stainless-steel package!

5. Luxury Bath Towels

With an entire house to furnish, it can take a long time before you get around to buying secondary items like bath towels. But every house and every bathroom deserves luxury bath towels.

So why not list it on your wedding registry?

If you haven’t figured out the color and theme you want in the bathroom, you can play it safe. Pick a neutral shade like grey, cream, or black instead.

6. Electric Air Fryer

Air fryers are trending more than any viral Tik Tok video. That’s why it definitely deserves a place on your registry.

Air fryers make cooking easier and healthier, seeing how it removes all but the minimum application of oil or butter. It’s a lovely appliance to set up your kitchen.

It’s got 13-13!- cooking functions! Plus, it comes with all the bells and whistles like a non-stick basket and over 100 recipes to choose from

7. Matte Ceramic Plates

Dinnerware like this is a lovely way to help newlyweds stock their cabinets. Not only are they gorgeous these ceramic plates are also hardy and durable—unless you drop them.

This hand-finished, matte ceramic dishware is perfect for daily use. You also get to choose different kinds of plates: salad plates, deep plates, and dinner plates, and in different colors, too.

They’re microwave and dishwasher friendly. Plus, they’re an affordable choice for guests, so why not add a couple more designs while you’re at it?

8. Whiskey Glasses

You can’t keep drinking whiskey out of paper cups, not when you’re newlyweds. So barware should definitely be an item on the wedding registry.

Check out these hexagonal whisky glasses! With a 300ml capacity, they are made from lead-free materials.

The best part? Because of how the glasses are shaped, when you hold up a glass to the light, it will look iridescent under different lighting.

9. Drinkware Set

This 16-piece set of glassware includes eight highball glasses and eight tumbler-style glasses with a heavy base for extra stability. It’s ideal for everyday use.

They’re not something you need to carefully wrap up and store away because they’re too fancy. Plus, these glasses are dishwasher safe, so they’re pretty and easy to clean.

You can use it for drinking juice, milk, or water, but they’re just fancy enough to serve wine, beer, and even cocktails!

10. Kitchen Knife Set

Cutlery is a common item on a registry. So it makes sense that you add a kitchen knife set like this to it.

Look at the gleaming edges and how they glint under the light. This set includes: paring knives, serrated utility knives, steak knives, sharpening knives, and you run-of-the-mill chef’s knives.

They’re dishwasher safe, which means you don’t need to scrub it clean. Speaking of dishwashers, I wonder if that’s something you can list on your wedding registry.

11. Stovetop Espresso Machine

Sure, wooden spoons and ladles look great in a pot of soup. But, do you know how hard they are to clean and maintain?

You’d constantly be worried about food particles permeating the wood. That’s why you need silicone cooking utensils. They’re easy to clean, completely heat resistant, and super flexible.

This one’s a 32-32!- piece set and includes: pasta server, spatula, grater, deep soup ladle, measuring cups, peeler, and tea strainer, to name a few.

But neither kitchen you furnish will be complete without a toaster oven like this to make garlic bread, pizza, or just plain old toast.

It’s got four functions: broil, bake, toast, and keep warm. You also have a removable tray to catch crumbs and spills.

This is 15.47 inches of compact stainless steel hardware that’s bound to make cooking easier.

No, this doesn’t come with knives—a mental note to add knives to the registry. However, it’s a stunning addition to your kitchen island.

Just keep in mind that while this knife display has a universal knife-stand template and can accommodate the usual knife, it doesn’t hurt to check the dimensions.

Is your wedding registry truly complete without a fondue maker that you’ll probably never use but you really, really want?

Unfortunately, it’s a pain to set up the fondue maker, and the process can get messy and hot. That is the biggest deterrent.

But this one’s electric, with a stainless steel 3-quart bowl—cheese!—and non-stick interior. It also comes with eight fondue forks, a fondue rack, and a temperature probe.

Maybe next time you have friends over, you can finally have fondue.

36. Waffle Maker
