Between figuring out the number of place settings you need, how many appliances you can actually fit in your (most likely) cramped kitchen space, and whether to go all-white-everything or have fun with color, putting together your wedding registry can be overwhelming. That's why Scandinavian-inspired design is a trend we're definitely into — the minimalist aesthetic, muted color palette, and abundance of neutrals makes this look an easy choice for couples who want something timeless but also modern.

For tabletops, this sleek carafe by Kosta Boda screams "Use me on your bedside table. Or as a makeshift vase. Or for anything. Because I'm too pretty to be put away." And these beigey-pinkish wide bowls with just a touch of gold are, once again, multi-purpose and crazy chic. Use it as a little fruit bowl on your counter, a vessel for jewelry, or as it was meant to be used.

If you're more of an extravagant bride who feels bold enough to register for something outlandishly beautiful and a bit pricey, we are in love with this amazing apricot swivel chair thanks to the mid-century design and copper legs. Promise your husband the rest of your living room will be all gray to neutralize this girly beaut.

This geometric light gray vase from Ferm Living has just enough sharpness to add interest to a spray of fluffy and bright flowers, while these super sleek and modern candle holders from CB2 are affordable enough to register for multiples. Round your registry out with something you will use everyday: These simple but oh-so-cool painted wooden coasters from Michele Varian. Because after all, you deserve good design down to the very last detail!
