After you've called your family and friends with news of your engagement, shown off the ring, and gleefully updated your Facebook status, you'll soon be faced with a massive undertaking: creating your wedding registry.
To help make the process a little easier, we've created this handy wedding registry checklist that you can customize to suit your needs. Do you already have a good set of everyday dishes? You can delete that category from your checklist entirely. Want to switch up your bedding a few times a year? Update those suggested numbers to ones that work for you.
Now comes the really hard part, what should you register for? I've rounded up a few of my favorite finds below, or you can check out our wedding registry gallery for more ideas. —Allison Bean
