Kitchen tools, table settings, bedding and bathroom items are some of the most common items engaged couples put on their registries. Some couples also register for outdoor items or things related to their shared interests, such as camping equipment. It's also common to register for things necessary for the honeymoon, such as luggage.
What an engaged pair registers for depends heavily on their ages and living arrangements. A young couple who is living in a new home together needs all the basic kitchen and bathroom items, while an older or more established couple may already have everything they need and instead registers for decorative or "fun" things.
Kitchen basics such as bakeware, utensils, knives and electronics such as coffee makers and rice cookers are often part of a wedding registry. Dining supplies are typical too; a couple may register for everyday dishes or fine china as well as wine glasses and table linens.
Towels, shower curtains, bath mats and accessories such as soap dispensers are commonly included on a registry, as are sheets, duvets, pillows, blankets and other bedding. It's not unusual to register for decorative objects such as candles, picture frames and wall hangings. Some couples register for patio furniture, grills or accessories for outdoor games. Every registry should include items in a wide variety of price ranges.
