Unexpected Items You Must Register For

Brides weigh in on the why-didn’t-I-think-of-that items they wish they’d added to their list of linens and cookware.

Stylish Dinnerware

“I wish I’d gone for something a little more artsy and unique than my classic white dinner plates. I love the Coupe line from Heath Ceramics, which is made in California. A grilled cheese would look as good on a Heath plate as fettuccine alfredo.” ―Paige, San Francisco


A Grill

“I didn’t think about it at the time I was registering, because it wasn’t something I had to have. But we need one now, and they’re expensive!” ―Catherine, Richmond, Virginia



“I work at an art gallery called Pace Prints, and they will put together a wedding registry for couples who basically have everything. For example, family and friends can make contributions for a set of prints, and then the couple get to enjoy something that reminds them of their love of art and for each other.” ―Kristina, New York City


Oven-to-Table Bakeware

“I love the stack of plain glass workhorse Pyrex we have, but it’s so nice to have serving pieces you can pull out of the oven and take to a dinner party or put on a buffet that still look nice.” ―Hallie, Birmingham, Alabama
