How to Have a Successful Wedding Registry Experience

Target design partner and celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis shares her tricks for making registering for your wedding as easy and effective as possible.

Plan Ahead

"Plan ahead! Think beyond what you and your fiancé need for just the two of you. You may not be hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, but it's very likely you will be feeding a crowd for the holidays or hosting a big dinner party down the road. Register for things like my Giada De Laurentiis for Target 10-pc. Stainless Steel Cookset or Giada De Laurentiis for Target 6-qt. Cast-Iron Dutch Oven—both of these items can be used for everyday meals and are also perfect for the holidays."
