Registry Items

Congratulations on your engagement! What an exciting time for you and your partner. With all the wedding preparations, the last thing you are probably thinking about is everyday life after the wedding. However, the key to selecting the right registry items will be to think about what you and your partner need in day-to-day life. Seabrook Island Weddings has created a guide to registry items every newlywed should ask for.

Kitchen Registry Items

The main items to focus on are usually kitchenware. This is because they can oftentimes be expensive but also some of the most useful items. If you and your partner are more of Ubereats, takeout people, we understand but it can also be helpful to have kitchen items available when needed. Here is a very baseline list of some useful kitchen registry items we suggest:

  • Cookware (skillets, baking pans, saucepans, etc.)
  • A nice set of knives
  • Cutting Boards
  • Standing Mixer
  • Food Processor
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Whisk
  • Wooden Spoons
  • Spatula
  • Toaster Oven

Dining and Entertaining Registry Items

Girls night margaritas or maybe even Sunday football tailgating? Having the proper dining and entertaining items can make you the hostess with the mostest. This can also be everyday needs you and your partner may have. Perhaps you have a collection of old, plastic cups you’ve been using since college and it’s time to upgrade to a matching glass set. The options are endless but here is a basic list of what you and your partner may need:

  • Everyday Dishware (plates, bowls, etc.)
  • Everyday Drinkware 
  • Wine Glasses (our favorite)
  • Mugs
  • Serving bowls, platters, and trays
  • Cheese and Charcuterie boards
  • Bar Cart
  • Wine Decanter
