5 Kitchen Items Every Wedding Registry Should Splurge On

Your wedding is a great time to get things you would want that you normally would not buy for yourself. Most of your guests will want to buy you something nice – so why not point them in the right direction! While it is fun to ask for a quirky waffle iron or countertop soda machine, make sure you ask for a few higher quality kitchen essentials. The items used daily are often times the most overlooked when building a registry because they aren’t fancy or super exciting, but let’s face it – you need them! These essential items are the last thing you want to skimp on as far as quality is concerned. It can be a little overwhelming wandering through the aisles and deciding the must-haves, so here are a few to help.

  1. Knives/Knife Set
    You will always appreciate an amazing knife set. They are a crucial tool no matter how large or small the meal. The last thing you want is to dread chopping potatoes or meat because you know it’s going to be a workout. Quality knives will allow you to slice and dice your way through dinner prep without any temptation to throw in the towel and order takeout.
  2. Pots and Pans
    Finer quality cookware doesn’t just end at the stove – they help shorten your time at the sink. Over time, the lesser quality items begin to rust and break. Before registering, do a little research. Think about what types of meals you typically cook, read reviews on different types and brands of cookware, and price out the different options. Some people prefer copper cookware while others prefer Teflon. No matter your preference, you want to ask for quality items that will save yourself from the short and long term headaches.
  3. Silverware
    Similar to pots and pans, silverware can last a while, or not so much. Quality silverware will be at your table for years to come – going a lesser route will result in rusted and bent cutlery. Choosing a nicer set of silverware can simplify things as well. If you choose a cleaner, simpler style, it can work with every day casual meals as well as grander holiday dinners without seeming out of place.
  4. Everyday China
    Your everyday meals deserve more than a paper plate. If you do not yet have durable, dishwasher friendly china, you should consider it. The fine china sets are beautiful additions to any formal table setting, however if you do not have the daily basics, build that first. Quality casual china will be more resistant to chips, fading and staining, and if you choose a more traditional, basic style, you will not have to worry about replacing out of date looks.
  5. Crockpot
    It might sound like a silly must have, but as you start your new life together, you will find more use for it than expected. Life will only get busier, and it will be your biggest ally at dinner time. There’s nothing better than coming home after a long work day to a delicious dinner waiting for you, and crockpots always make that a possibility. There are countless recipes online, as well as, cookbooks to give ideas. You want to make sure to invest in a good brand to avoid coming home to a burnt meal… or worse, a burned kitchen.

So there you have it, 5 items you should be sure to add to your wedding registry!  Don’t overlook the common, most-used items for all of the fancy gadgets that may seem amazing while registering but months later end up in the back of the cabinet never to be used again. Start with the basics and then go from there.  Happy wedding planning!

  1. My set of knives suck right now. A new set will definitely be on my registry. I already have a crockpot but I think I need a larger one in the event that I cook for a larger group of people. And you can never have enough pots and pans. Or silverware. Or everyday china, LOL. These are all great suggestions.
