Creating your wedding registry is one of the most fun activities to check off your wedding planning list (right up there with cake tasting!). But given that you can register for just about anything, just about anywhere, figuring out where to register for your wedding can be a bit overwhelming. That's why we've compiled all of the best brands—small and large—across all categories. First up, pots and pans! Of course, lots of places will allow you to consolidate everything on your list, so we would be remiss not to mention these heavy hitters before we get into the more specific brands.
5 Best Universal Registries for Pots and Pans
Move your wedding registry into the digital age with Amazon! With Amazon's universal registry, you can even add items found on different sites, but we have a feeling you'll be able to curate a great selection of kitchenware right there on Amazon.
With a Zola registry, you can register for over 50,000 gifts, experiences, and funds—all in one place. You can also add gifts from any other store to your Zola registry. And since you can add gifts from any store, plus have the ability to receive group gifts and get a 10 percent discount on Zola for an entire year after your wedding (even on items that weren't originally on your list), this is one of the best wedding registry sites and worth serious consideration, especially when it comes to luxury kitchenware.
NewlyWish is a registry aggregate that combines a curated list of stylish products, experiences, and honeymoon excursions with offsite products.
