Whether you and your fiancé are culinary connoisseurs, or design mavens looking to add finishing touches to the home you already share, curating your wedding registry can be a daunting task. Enter Williams-Sonoma, your one-stop shop for everything from food processors to furniture.
Not sure where to start? First, make an appointment (it's free) with one of their specialists to help you navigate the process — they'll recommend different finds based on you and your future husband's personalities and interests. Plus, you can meet after your wedding to find out how to fully utilize your new home goods (like the kitchen gadget you love, but have no idea how to use!).
Williams-Sonoma has tons of amazing registry items, but we're currently loving their Open Kitchen line, which offers high quality basics at an affordable price. It's perfect if you're hoping to foray into cooking, but aren't ready to take the plunge and register for a $2,000 cookware set.
And remember to look beyond the big-ticket items while browsing the aisles (or online). Consider some chic, less expensive options such as white-bone coasters or monogram cocktail napkins. Both finds are must-haves for your first dinner party as newlyweds, and make for affordable engagement and shower gift options. Also don't be afraid to select some out-of-the-box items either. Love Italian food? We found an easy-to-use pizza maker — W.S. even sells a gourmet crust mix for the domestically challenged. If your fiancé loves playing mixologist when you entertain, a sleek gold bar cart would be the perfect addition to your new home.
