If you’re just starting to create your wedding registry, chances are you have a lot of questions. I can totally relate, because right after I got engaged, I was suddenly extremely curious about things I had never wondered about: things like stainless steel cookware vs. nonstick, and down comforters vs. quilts.
I often wished I had paid more attention to other people’s registries instead of just scanning the prices and finding a gift that fit my budget!
That’s why I know you’ll appreciate a sneak peek into which items are most popular among other engaged couples. I turned to the wedding registry specialists at Belk, which is known for its southern style and warm aesthetic. Belk’s specialists graciously shared their most popular wedding registry items among brides and grooms. You’ll see items for entertaining, cooking, and even decorating the bedroom! Let the sneak peek begin!
Belk’s Top Registry Gifts
Entertaining with Style
If you love clean lines and rustic touches, the Villeroy & Boch Artesano place setting is perfect for you! Featuring inspired casual dining from Germany’s premier porcelain manufacturer, this collection is crafted with superior-quality white porcelain in classic shapes and practical sizes. The modern wide-edged plates and bowls update your table setting with sustainable acacia wood, cork, glass and slate. The collection includes the standard place setting items, plus serving plates, dip bowls, wooden serving trays, and even an antipasti plate!
Looking for dinnerware that makes a bold, yet sophisticated, statement? Look no further! This stunning and ornate dinnerware pattern with bold Wedgwood blue features is sure to be a conversation piece at your first formal dinner party!
Is your style more traditional? Featuring a classic colonial-style pattern, the antique white collection blends into any décor, making it ideal for hosts and hostesses who prefer to alternate colorful linens and centerpieces on their dining table. The collection comes in a stately solid ivory color and has clean, straight lines for a sophisticated look. Slightly scalloped and double-rimmed edges lend additional sophisticated appeal to each piece.
Brilliant honeycomb facets and a distinctive ball-accented stem give each piece distinctive style, but don’t let the ornate patterns fool you: this Villeroy & Boch stemware is perfect for everyday use, because they’re dishwasher safe. Elevate your collection with these everyday pieces!
These Lenox® crystal glasses bring out the elegance of your favorite white blends! With a classic glass shape designed to enhance the wine’s flavor, this luxurious set is perfect for wine-loving couples.
This simple flatware set features a sleek mirrored pattern with a softened square handle and a raised tip.
Enjoy a nice bowl of cereal or some warm soup in these adorable mix-and-match bowls! You’ll love the way the playful prints and vibrant colors pair together to create a unique set for friends and family to enjoy.
Great for holiday entertaining, parties and gift giving, this footed cake plate is essential for the home! The rounded dome accommodates cakes and pastries with room to spare.

Clearly, I’m not the only one obsessed with marble right now! Many of Belk’s brides and grooms are choosing this cheese board for its combination of acacia wood and sleek marble—all handcrafted and sure to add a touch of sophistication to your next wine and cheese party!
If you love that marble and wood cheese plate, you should definitely register for these cheese knives to complete the look!
Equip Your Kitchen
Perfect for every aspiring top chef, this cookware collection combines the best of both worlds: its Copper-Core means you get the ideal benefits of copper heat conduction, but with the cleaning ease of stainless steel. Because this formula is a carefully-guarded All-Clad innovation, no other cookware in the world can match the performance standards of its unique bonded design.
If you’re debating whether or not you need the KitchenAid stand mixer, let me the end the debate right now: the answer is a resounding YES! You don’t have to love baking to enjoy this kitchen essential; it’s useful for so much more than mixing up cookie dough. I use mine for chores like shredding chicken and mixing spinach artichoke dip, plus the multipurpose attachment hub powers over 12 optional attachments, like a spiralizer, a citrus juicer, and more, for endless possibilities!
Confession: in writing this post, I had to follow the Belk brides’ lead and order this for myself! I love the fact that these bowls can be used for both preparation and storage, thanks to their airtight lids! And the bright colors are an added bonus, too!
This item, however, remains on my wish list! There are lots of scientific reasons why this gorgeous pot from Le Creuset offers perfect heat distribution and minimal moisture, but why do I love it so much? Because you can sear your meat and finish cooking your stew in the same pot, keeping cleanup to a minimum. And it’s beautiful to boot!
This Cuisinart® Food Processor is designed to perform just about any food prep task a recipe requires. It’s big enough to chop ingredients for a party-sized portion of salsa, and powerful enough to turn a full bowl of veggies into healthy pureed soups in seconds.
A perfect collection for the at-home chef, this knife set provides everything you need to prepare any tasty meal. Each knife handle is labeled (how cool is that?) so you always pull the correct tool out of the block! To ensure a high quality cut every time, sharpeners are built into the block, automatically sharpening straight edge knives.
Bedrooms Made for Sweet Dreams
The Brooke Bedding Collection features iconic Greek key multi color embroidery that adds a signature touch to the set. Complete your bedding ensemble with the iconic, feather filled decorative pillows and Euro shams with dressmaker details.
The lovely, tonal embroidered design featured on this updated, yet elegant, bedding ensemble will bring beauty and serenity to your home retreat. Inspired by the over-sized, intricate wrought iron gate that guards the Lodge at Biltmore, this collection is essential to your bedroom.
Super soft cotton makes this comforter ideal for your bedroom space. This Biltmore® classic boasts baffle box construction and 600 fill power for medium warmth and maximum comfort.
Haven’t you always wished that you didn’t have to flip your pillow for it to feel “cool?” Now you don’t, thanks to the TEMPUR-Cloud Breeze Dual Cooling Pillow. The formed TEMPUR material precisely supports your head, neck and shoulders, while the TEMPUR-Breeze Gel Layer helps keep you cool during the night. So whether you’re a back, side or stomach sleeper, you’ll be perfectly comfortable!
