Before you go register-crazy with the scanning gun, take a moment to think about your new home, new life, and soon-to-be new husband. Sure, you might already have the essentials accounted for, but think of your registry as an opportunity to upgrade your towels, shams, and dinnerware to something that you both will truly love.

So throw out the faded towels monogrammed with your maiden name and register for spa-quality linens in a gender-neutral shade. Another registry must is your dinnerware! With marriage comes a lifetime of meals for two so you better be prepared. Mix up your plain white china with a totally fun, yet still practical dinnerware pattern. We suggest investing in something that feels both formal and contemporary. And, if you are already registering for plates, you might as well upgrade your entire table setting with glassware, silverware, and table linens. When making this tabletop wish list, continue to mix up the classics and remember to pick items that suit your new style as a married couple.

After registering for these 10 upgraded essentials, you'll be ready to invite all of your best friends over for your first dinner party as newlyweds!
