The perfect wedding registry combines essential home goods, timeless keepsakes, and some personal favorites from your wish list. Wedding guests love registries because they're a helpful guide to the gifts you really want and paint a picture of how you and your new hubby will fill your home.
We're always on the lookout for new, creative, and inspired registry items for every type of couple, and with the Oscars almost here, we're taking a particular interest in items that evoke this year's nominated films!
Whether you're planning an Oscars party with your fiancé, had a memorable date night seeing one of these films, or you just love movies, these six gift ideas are perfect for your wedding registry.
American Hustle: Who can forget Jennifer Lawrence's hilarious "science oven" comment (and subsequent fire) when she encountered her first microwave in the Best Picture-nominated film? Luckily, you and your future husband can avoid a similar fiasco with the fun popcorn popper seen above! Enjoy the delicious munchies for your Oscar party—and future movie nights on the couch!

Gravity: There were a lot of anxiety-inducing moments in this mega-nominated film (it's tied with American Hustle for the most nods, at 10), so we recommend sipping on a delicious cocktail to soothe your nerves on Oscar night. These stemless martini glasses remind us of the silvery stars in space that Sandra Bullock and George Clooney hurtle through during the film.

The Wolf of Wall Street: Monogrammed bath towels are a classic wedding gift, and these, with their dignified "Mr." and Mrs." stitching, feel like a refreshing update. Guests can dry their hands on the cotton towels and imagine that similar ones surely hung in Jordan Belfort's sprawling Long Island mansion.

Her: You're getting married, so this futuristic tale of romance between man and machine might feel distantly familiar. Or not. Either way, it's hard not to identify with Joaquin Phoenix's utterly lovesick character. Techie couples can express their personality with registry items like an Apple TV. Use it to stream your favorite Oscar-nominated flicks to your TV before the big night, or even to play YouTube videos during commercial breaks. You'll fall in love with it—but not as much as Joaquin's character would.

Frozen: This registry gift makes multiple restaurant-quality frozen drinks at the touch of a button! It's perfect for making drinks for a boozy Oscar night or a fiesta-themed dinner party. Plus, it puts an adult spin on the delightful nominee for Best Animated Feature. Drink up!

Blue Jasmine: Wedding registries are the perfect place for home décor items like vases. This classic Vera Wang design would look stunning on any dinner table. Fill it with a sweet arrangement of jasmine flowers for a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Oscar-nominated film.
