If you ask us, setting up a registry is one of the most fun parts of the wedding planning process. Not only is it an excuse to online shop for your coveted wishlist, but it’s also an important resource for your guests. Curating a list of items you’ve been eyeing gives you the chance to tell your loved ones exactly what you want, so you’re guaranteed to receive gifts that you’ll actually use and enjoy on a regular basis. With online registries, you’re given the opportunity to upgrade everyday household appliances or select decorations that will help create the ambiance of your home. Registries are also an excellent way to ask for unique products you otherwise wouldn’t buy for yourself. 

Since coming up with hundreds of registry ideas is an extensive task, we tapped the Brides team for some help. Below, our editors are sharing the top items every engaged couple needs to add to their registry. From chic stemless wine glasses to cozy cashmere blankets, these gifts will make your new chapter together even more meaningful. Here are the top wedding registry picks our editors can’t get enough of.

“Whether planning ahead for a honeymoon or not, everyone needs luggage on their registry. Travel gear may not always be a top-of-mind investment until that big trip comes around, but now is the perfect opportunity to allow your nearest and dearest to spoil you with a beautiful set for your future adventures as a married couple. My absolute favorite is Briggs & Riley's Baseline Expandable Spinner Luggage and Carry-On in navy. It's sleek, easy to schlep, and fits all you could possibly need.” — Samantha Netkin Brash, Assistant General Manager
