Congratulations! (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/8-tips-for-planning-a-last-minute-wedding?ref=seealso">8 Tips for Planning a Last Minute Wedding</a>)</p> <p>Amidst all the ceremony decisions, location reservations, and fancy wardrobe choices for the big day, you're probably registering somewhere. Before you do, read this article. Having been there and done all of that, I have some suggestions for items we've never touched, and others we've regretted not asking for.</p> <h2>Remove From Your List</h2> <p>Many of the following items are traditional wedding registry items, but honestly? Who needs them?</p> <h3>Fine China</h3> <p>In the seven years I've been married, I've not once needed fancy dinnerware for entertaining. Since we're more frugally-minded folks, our parties are typically pass-arounds or potlucks, and our colorful Fiestaware is holding up just fine. So, skip the fancy patterns and delicate wares and instead find a sturdy, casual set with a few extra servings (think eight or more, total) for when guests visit.</p> <h3>Formal Utensils</h3> <p>The same goes with those extended fork, spoon, and knife sets. Of course I understand all those different utensils have purposes, but not in my life. If you're like me and don't see stuffy dinners in your future, forego the silver and get an extra set of casual utensils you'll actually use on the daily.</p> <h3>Gimmicky Gadgets</h3> <p>Sure, an avocado slicer or garlic chopper might sound awesome in theory, but over the years? Well, ours got pushed to the back of our kitchen drawers never to resurface. Stick with the basics, like a good knife set and wooden spoons or spatulas.</p> <h3>Bread Maker</h3> <p>Making bread at home isn't much more complicated than tossing stuff into a bread maker and pushing start. Really. Plus, you'll never get bakery style crust in a bread maker. I gave mine away years ago. A good <a href="http://www.neverhomemaker.com/2010/09/white-whole-wheat-no-knead-loaf.html">No-Knead Loaf Recipe</a> is a great place to start.</p> <h3>Panini Press</h3> <p>Whenever I want a grilled sandwich, I slather my bread with butter or oil and cook in a fry pan until golden on both sides. We did receive a panini press as a wedding gift, but it just never seems to travel out of its spot in the lower cabinet. (See also: T<a href="http://www.wisebread.com/the-5-best-panini-presses">he 5 Best Panini Presses</a>)</p> <h3>Other Task-Specific Appliances</h3> <p>Think about it. How often will you really use that margarita maker, a banana ice cream machine, fondue fountain, or cake-pop baker? If the answer is rarely, don't put it on your registry. Chances are that space is at a premium in your kitchen, so it's best to keep your fleet of small appliances lean and multipurpose. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/7-kitchen-gadgets-that-save-you-money?ref=seealso">7 Kitchen Gadgets That Save You Money</a>)</p> <h3>Bathroom Extras</h3> <p>Our snazzy soap dishes, liquid dispensers, and toothbrush holders? I have no idea what happened to them. We have switched mostly to using castile soap for all washing purposes, so we usually use it right out of the bottle. For the rest, we have quite a system of simple ball jars for storage. And soap fits snugly in one of those shower caddies.</p> <h3>Ice Bucket, Etc.</h3> <p>Whenever I see &quot;ice bucket&quot; on one of those must-have registry checklists, I shrug my shoulders. Not once in the entire time I've been married have I needed an ice bucket &mdash; or a fancy pitcher, for that matter. Champagne, wine, and beer all chill just fine in the refrigerator. If we need ice at parties, we quickly grab it from the freezer.</p> <h3>Crazy Patterned Anything</h3> <p>Between bedsheets, shower curtains, towels, and all other fabrics you might register for, there are certainly a number of choices. I made the mistake of going with a very bold pattern and color choice for all. Now? I sure wish I could divorce these items for a more neutral, time-tested look since my tastes have (inevitably) changed. Concentrate your search on quality versus styled textiles, and keep it basic with neutral colors or solids that can mix and match as your years together roll on.</p> <h3>Lifestyle Items</h3> <p>Again: Resist the trappings on any formulaic checklists you might find regarding wedding registry items. You'll see lots of bakeware on traditional lists, for example. If you hate baking, you likely don't need extra sets of mixing bowls and cake pans cluttering up your kitchen.</p> <p>There's no right way to live life, so your wedding registry should be as unique as you are. Ask for things you'll use, don't put on anything you feel you should just because it's what everyone else seems to have.</p> <h2>Stuff to Add Right Now!</h2> <p>Okay, if I had to do it all over again, these are the things I'd be sure to add to my registry.</p> <h3>Vacuum Cleaner</h3> <p>And another one bites the dust. That used to be my motto for the cheap vacuum cleaners I had in my early 20s. I don't know why I didn't register for a good one when we got married. In fact, we just recently invested in a quality vacuum (set us back a few hundred dollars &mdash; ouch), and it's made a huge difference, especially with our cat hair issues.</p> <h3>Garbage Can</h3> <p>So, if you've always used those cheap open-top plastic garbage cans you can buy at big box stores, you might not realize how much money a good garbage can actually costs. Thing is, they're worth every penny if you want them to last and (eventually) keep your trash out of your toddler's (or dog's) inquisitive reach.</p> <h3>Crock Pot</h3> <p>I feel like a bit of a hypocrite with this one. I wrote to stay away from a bread maker, and now I'm going to tell you to absolutely add a crock pot to your registry list. For me, a slow cooker is extra insurance for not letting my food go to waste. I toss in whatever veggies we have leftover and make soup or stew at the start of each week before I head to the grocery store. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/35-slow-cooker-recipes-for-busy-or-lazy-vegetarians?ref=seealso">35 Slow Cooker Recipes for Busy (or Lazy) Vegetarians</a>)</p> <h3>Dutch Oven</h3> <p>I use my cast iron dutch oven at least every other day. Whether I'm simmering a soup or baking crusty sourdough bread, it works wonders &mdash; but it was also quite expensive. You need not register for the most pricey, name-brand version. Instead, find one with enough room for your purposes, and it will last you a lifetime.</p> <h3>Food Processor</h3> <p>A lot of my friends immediately put a stand mixer on their registries. And &mdash; yes &mdash; I use my stand mixer often for cookies, breads, cakes, etc. However, what I use even more frequently is my food processor. I can blend together homemade peanut butters, sauces, veggie burgers, and even make my own oat flour.

Depending on the background and traditions of your guests, however, there is a very good chance that there will be at least a few people who prefer to give a gift. In fact, when I go to weddings, I prefer to give a gift so that people can&rsquo;t put a monetary value on my good wishes. Having a lot of good choices on your wedding registry helps to prevent receiving four pairs of hideous salad tongs, and it&rsquo;s a great opportunity to get those big-ticket items that will serve you for years to come. (See also:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.wisebread.com/alternative-wedding-registry-ideas">Alternative Wedding Registry&nbsp;Ideas</a>)</p> <h2>Register for&hellip;</h2> <p>These are items most of us can&rsquo;t afford to purchase all at once, such as cutlery and tableware, as well as nice things every household should have, but that are often low on the need-to-buy-list, such as luggage.</p> <p><strong>Classic (White) Dishes</strong></p> <p>A complete set of quality dishes is expensive, and your wedding is your one chance to get a full and complete dinner setting.</p> <p>Register for high-quality white dishes that will stand the test of time and won&rsquo;t look dated in a few years (you can always add colorful accent plates). For the best bang for your guests&rsquo; buck, register for a quality set of everyday dinnerware instead of a fancy set of fine china that you&rsquo;ll only use a few times a year. The wedding gift I use the most is a set of white Villeroy &amp; Boch dinnerware given to me by my mother-in-law. It is sturdy enough for everyday use yet pretty enough for fancy dinners.</p> <p><strong>Sturdy Flatware</strong></p> <p>Sure, you&rsquo;ve done fine using your set of IKEA flatware for the past few years, but your wedding is your chance to get something a bit higher quality for all those fancy dinner parties you&rsquo;ll be hosting. You&rsquo;ll probably never find a reason to splurge on top-quality flatware again, so put some thought into the set you add to your registry. Go for something dishwasher safe and sturdy, in a clean and classic design.</p> <p><strong>Oven-to-Table-to-Freezer Casserole Set</strong></p> <p>In your life as a married person, you&rsquo;ll probably be toting casseroles to a lot of potlucks and game nights, so add a set of casserole dishes to your registry. These handy lidded containers can go from the oven to the table and straight to the fridge or freezer. Whether you choose Pyrex, Corningware, or something a little fancier, this set of casseroles will be useful for years to come.</p> <p><strong>Open Stock Pots and Pans</strong></p> <p>Forget the 10-piece sets of cookware that come in a huge box. Chances are that the quality of each piece won&rsquo;t be the highest, and you&rsquo;ll get far more cookware than you need.</p> <p>Instead, register for a couple frying pans (a 10-inch and a 12-inch), a medium saucepan, and a large pot for soups and stews. Choose them based on functionality instead of how well they match. For example, the most-used pots in my kitchen are my 5.5-quart enameled cast-iron Le Creuset pot, a medium stainless steel saucepan, and a couple of nonstick, anodized aluminum, ceramic coated frying pans. Think about how you like to cook, and register accordingly.</p> <p><strong>Knives</strong></p> <p>Again, forgo the box set and choose a solidly made, quality forged chef&rsquo;s knife. This is your chance to get a Wusthof or a Shun, so be sure to add it to your list. You can always buy cheaper paring knives and steak knives later, but be sure to add the knife of a lifetime to your registry.</p> <p><strong>Sheets</strong></p> <p>My husband and I never splurge on sheets for ourselves &mdash; most of our sheet sets are from TJ Maxx or <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/ikea-survival-guide">Ikea</a> &mdash; but we still love the quality set of sheets we received for our wedding. They cost $100 for a queen set but four years later, they are still the softest sheets we own. So while you wouldn&rsquo;t necessarily spend a lot on sheets for yourself, you might want to put a good set on the registry.</p> <p><strong>Small Appliances</strong></p> <p>A blender, a hand mixer, a kettle, a slow cooker, and a <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/better-brewing-12-ways-to-make-coffee-at-home">coffee maker</a> are all mid-priced appliances that guests appreciate seeing on a registry, and they are all kitchen essentials. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/the-5-best-mixers">The 5 Best Mixers</a>)</p> <p><strong>Suitcases</strong></p> <p>Quality luggage costs a pretty penny, but will save you so many headaches when rolling them to and fro in airports. Have you ever tried to roll a cheap, 50-pound suitcase with broken wheels on the subway? I have, and I don&rsquo;t care to repeat the experience.</p> <p><strong>Camping Gear</strong></p> <p>If you&rsquo;re the outdoorsy type, consider registering for gear that will help you make family memories. Register for a nice spacious tent and a couple warm sleeping bags so you can camp in style.</p> <p><strong>Basic Tools</strong></p> <p>Even if you aren&rsquo;t the handiest couple, a power drill, a couple of screwdrivers, a set of socket wrenches, and a hammer will come in handy when putting up your new bookshelves and your framed wedding photos.</p> <h2>Think Twice About&hellip;</h2> <p>Think twice about gifts that you may not need, or have the space for, or are really just clutter.</p> <p><strong>Stand Mixer</strong></p> <p>Before registering for a stand mixer, think carefully. Yes, your wedding might be your best chance to get one of these expensive babies, but how essential is it?</p> <p>A heavy stand mixer is most useful when you can leave it out on the counter, but do you have the counter space (when you factor in the blender, the coffee maker, and the microwave)? Do you bake often enough that a stand mixer will be that much more useful than a hand mixer? If so, go for it. Otherwise? Think it over.</p> <p><strong>Crystal Glasses</strong></p> <p>You know the thing about wine glasses? When they see a lot of use, they tend to break. So go ahead and register for them, but don&rsquo;t get something so expensive you&rsquo;ll be heartbroken when it breaks. My husband and I prefer to buy a wine glass at a winery every time we go wine tasting &mdash; it&rsquo;s a fun and inexpensive souvenir, and we can use them later at home.</p> <p><strong>Decorations and Knick-Knacks</strong></p> <p>It&rsquo;s fun to register for home décor items, but don&rsquo;t go overboard. Your style might change in a few years, so hold off on registering for that deer's head wall sculpture, those vases in multiple colors, or that plethora of candle holders. It&rsquo;s easy to scan lots of random home décor items when you&rsquo;re registering, but they won&rsquo;t necessarily form a cohesive whole in your home.</p> <p>The exception? Quality art prints or original art. This is your chance to <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/fine-art-makes-fine-gifts">get some REAL art</a> to replace those college band posters you&rsquo;ve had up on your walls the last few years.</p> <p>One of the best things about a gift registry is that you can often return or exchange items for store credit or cash, so don't worry too much if you change your mind later!</p> <p><em>What were your favorite wedding registry gifts?</em></p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/camilla-cheung">Camilla Cheung</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/what-to-put-on-and-leave-off-your-wedding-registry">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

I emailed my sister to get my niece&rsquo;s mailing address and found out, very quickly, that she didn&rsquo;t need a watch but was ready with alternatives. My niece&nbsp;had created a graduation registry at <a href="http://www.crateandbarrel.com/Gift-Registry/">Crate&nbsp;&amp; Barrel</a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>Though I have become accustomed to&nbsp;online bridal registries (I&nbsp;got married in the days when brides made in-store appointments to create wedding registries), the graduation list was new to me.&nbsp;My niece had selected nice but not so expensive dinnerware and flatware along with a few kitchen items. I&nbsp;loved this idea and here's&nbsp;why:&nbsp;I&nbsp;was able to get a nice gift that the graduate wanted <em>and</em>&nbsp;spend less than I had originally planned.</p> <p>You may be thinking, why not give cash? Cash is a great gift and my gift of choice for the past 7 high school graduations.&nbsp;Here are a few&nbsp;reasons that some may&nbsp;opt out of cash giving:</p> <ul> <li>Desire to buy something memorable, especially for a big event such as a university&nbsp;graduation</li> <li>Hope to increase the value of the gift by giving a&nbsp;wanted&nbsp;item (Will sheds light on the difference between a gift&rsquo;s price tag and its value to the recipient in a post on <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/deadweight-loss-of-christmas-economist-explains-why-gifts-are-inefficient">why gifts may be inefficient</a>)</li> <li>Don't want to seem cheap but don't have a lot to spend (ideally, a gift registry will include items that are less than&nbsp;$15)</li> <li>Want to make sure that money isn't spent frivolously before the grad settles down</li> </ul> <p>Gift registries available online, in addition to Crate &amp;&nbsp;Barrel, are <a href="http://www.target.com/lists/portal">Target</a>, <a href="http://www.kohls.com/upgrade/gift_registry/kohlsgrw_generic_landing.jsp">Kohl's</a>,&nbsp;and <a href="http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/regHome.asp?order_num=-1&amp;">Bed Bath &amp;&nbsp;Beyond </a>and Amazon's&nbsp;Wish List. As a gift-giver, I want to be a part of&nbsp;helping someone get established in the real&nbsp;world. If I can give something that may help the grad save money&nbsp;in the long run, such as <a href="http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/nodePage.asp?order_num=-1&amp;RN=109">cookware</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/sg_head.asp?SGFN=sg_dinnerware">dinnerware</a> or a <a href="http://www.cookbooks.com/cbol1.htm">community cookbook</a>&nbsp;(to encourage <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/bridging-the-gap-from-dining-out-to-eating-in">eating in rather than eating out</a>),&nbsp;that's great also.</p> <p>My niece had her immediate next step careerwise figured out, and she's working while applying to graduate school. And, thanks to in-state tuition and some planning, she is free of student loan debt so cash wasn't as high a priority as it might be for some grads.
