Memorial Day just passed — which means it's time to start spending every weekend grilling outdoors. And if you and your fiancé love to host warm-weather cookouts, we recommend adding a few barbeque essentials to your registry.

To help you decide exactly what you need for your first summer barbeque as newlyweds, we asked Brit Morin, the registry expert for Target (a Brides Live Wedding sponsor), to reveal her favorite stylish and practical picks. "Cooking outdoors is so much fun and something you can both enjoy together," Morin says.

First, you'll need a grill if you don't have one. Brit suggests a classic: The Weber one-touch silver Charcoal grill.

You can't properly cook meat without knowing the grill's temperature, so this thermometer is essential. It's especially great because it's wireless — that means you can walk inside while your steak is sizzling outdoors.

"In addition to the obvious items like a grill and the right grilling utensils, I also like to keep plastic drinkware and melamine plates on hand," Morin suggests.

"Don't forget the servingware," Morin advises. "So many people forget to plan out where they'll put the food once it's taken off the grill." As suggested above, try a cute patterned melamine platter.
