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 vs. nonstick cookware, 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 wanted to give you a head start, so to speak. We have compiled a list of our favorite items for entertaining, cooking, and decorating the bedroom, in a variety of tastes and styles. Our hope is to take some of the guesswork out of the registry process as you find your own sense of style for your new home!

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.
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!

Each knife handle is labeled (how cool is that?) so you always pull the correct tool out of the block!
