Your bedroom wedding registry items are just as important as your formal dinnerware, flatware and stemware. These items will populate the room you share with your future husband; as a result, they should reflect both of your styles and make you both feel comfortable. As you combine closets and select that bedding you both can't live without, remember to keep decorative items in mind, as well.

"Blending two different styles doesn't have to be a challenge; keep a variety of accent pieces on hand to complement your different personalities as a couple," says Brides Live Wedding sponsor Target's Registry Expert Brit Morin. With that in mind, Morin helped us pick some exciting, gender-neutral, yet utterly stylish registry items that will help create a bedroom that satisfy the tastes of many types of brides and grooms.

An Accent Table: "Accent tables serve a purpose but can easily be moved to the living room as extra drink surfaces for the couple that likes to entertain," says Morin. This design is relatively simple, but with a unique base. It will add character to your bedroom without overpowering the overall vibe. Nate Berkus Accent Table, $79.99

A Mini Chandelier: Let there be light! Use your lighting fixture as a way to inject a little personality into your bedroom. Chandeliers often veer into a glamorous-girly territory, but this one is solidly cool for both genders. "A simple chandelier paired with throw pillows can add a touch of glam for the nightlife-loving couple," says Morin. Pulsar Ceiling Lamp, $378.00

A Storage Bench: Sophistication meets practicality with a cool storage bench. "A storage bench houses the camping gear of the outdoorsy duo," says Morin, but any couple that needs a clever way to stash away extra items will benefit from one. Get one that complements your bedding and place it at the foot of your bed. Nailbutton End of Bed Bench, $99.99

A Loveseat: Mix up your bedroom's functionality with a contemporary and comfortable loveseat. If you have the space, situate it near a TV or window so you can cuddle up and enjoy the view from someplace other than your bed. This loveseat's warm gray color will complement any color scheme, while the mod aesthetic will please girls and guys. Plus, it fold out into a futon! Maddox Pillowtop Sleeper Sofa, $299.99
