  • Still struggling with what to add to your wedding registry?
  • This list offers all the best products out there to add to your registry now.

So, you're planning a wedding. Congratulations! This is likely to be one of the most fun (and stressful) times of your life. From the cake to the venue, there's a lot of pressure to get every little detail just right. However, when it comes to the registry, let's let that be the just-for-fun part. Your registry is a chance to ask for all of the items that will help make your newly married life a 10 out of 10. And, who doesn't love that?

Registries are much more comprehensive than they once were. While new silverware or a KitchenAid mixer look great on your registry, it can span far beyond physical items. Now, soon-to-be married couples are requesting that friends and family gift funds for honeymoons, or "honeyfunds," or contribute to a down payment on their first home. Pretty smart, if you ask us.

Then, for those who want to go the more traditional route (or request a combination of gifts and funds), there are many retailers from which married couples can register. From Wayfair to Bed Bath & Beyond and Crate & Barrel, the options are endless. And, with sites like MyRegistry.com or Zola.com, you can combine all of your registries into one place to make life easier for guests.

Here, we've lined up a list of 50 items you should consider when completing the wedding registry of your dreams. Many of the items are available via Amazon's Wedding Registry and the rest are from registries provided by other popular retailers. If you haven't registered with Amazon or Zola.com, we'd highly recommend it. Both curated registry systems are easy to use and the amount of items worth registering for is endless.
