The best thing about getting engaged (besides marrying the love of your life) has got to be picking out your wedding registry. It's a chance to put together your ultimate wish list of everything you could want in your new marital home. While the majority of your registry list should be affordable (your guests will thank you!), feel free to add a few expensive splurges on there too!
Chances are there are at least one or two relatives who have been waiting for this chance to spoil you. Also if a group of your girlfriends knew you've been dying for that $500 espresso machine to make the perfect foamy cappuccinos every morning, chances are they would be happy to all go in on the gift together. Here, we've rounded up seven luxe items you shouldn't be afraid to add to your wedding registry.

A Le Creuset dutch oven may seem super pricey for kitchenware but the fact that you can use it on the stovetop and in the oven makes it worth the investment. (Round dutch oven, $400, Le Creuset)

If you like to bake, a Kitchenaid stand mixer is a wishlist must! While a close family member may shell out the $250 for the actual mixer, other guests can spend a reasonable amount buying you the attachments. (Profession stand mixer, $249.99, Kitchenaid available at Target)
