Creating a perfect wedding gift registry can be a daunting task, especially if you’re seeking the fully stocked kitchen of your dreams.
We’re here to suggest adopting a streamlined approach to crafting your wedding gift registry. The focus is on classic style and ultimate function. What are those tried-and-true items that will put in the work and provide value year after year? Read on to find out!
Wedding Gifts Registry – Don’t be Shy!
The kitchen is the heart of every home, so it’s no wonder that newlyweds dream of making it both a beautiful and functional space. Creating a stellar wedding gift registry is the perfect time to start thinking about the setup of your new home. Newlyweds shouldn’t shy away from putting a combination of investment as well as everyday kitchen items on their wedding registry.
Include both the essentials as well as a few fancier items. Some of the pricier and higher quality kitchen or home décor items should last a lifetime and never need to be replaced. What seems pricey upfront will give back in value over the years. So don’t be shy, go ahead and ask for those items that you know will be valuable to the function of your new home!
How do I Begin Building a Wedding Gift Registry?
Confused about where to start? We can’t stress enough the importance of thinking what will bring value to YOU. If you aren’t a big cook, maybe you don’t need a 20-piece cookware; a 10-piece set might make more sense for you. Don’t stuff every nook and cranny of your new home items you have no intention of using. For the most part, don’t invest in novelty or single-use gadgets like rice makers or bread makers unless you have a passion for these things and know for sure you will use them consistently. For your wedding gift registry play it safe and simple in terms of style, design, and function. This will pay off in the long run and save you from replacing out-of-style items or things that were just a passing trend. Think of things that will stand the test of time and you can picture being of use in your kitchen for years (even decades!) down the road.
Consider Storage and Quantity of Kitchen Items
This is especially important for serveware and cooking items. Take time to consider storage now before all these items suddenly appear at your doorstep. It would be a good idea to measure your cabinet space and the height of your dishwasher to make sure the dishes you want make sense both on and off the table. Next, think carefully about how many dishes you actually need for everyday use and how much cabinet space you have to store them.
How much dinnerware does a two-person household actually need? While this may seem like a simple decision, many will be torn between buying too much and buying too little. Considering how often you wish to entertain can help with this decision. If you’re leaning towards formal dinnerware, keep in mind that these sets can include a dinner plate, salad or dessert plate, bread plate, teacup with a saucer, and soup bowl. Do you have the space, and will you use it? Great! If not, reconsider and adjust for your needs.
