Between securing a venue, arranging for a gluten-free-vegetarian-friendly-kosher caterer, and saying yes to a gorgeous (but still affordable) wedding dress, there's nothing easy about planning a wedding. But while you might be stressed to the point of abandoning ship and eloping with your S.O. in Vegas, there are a few fun things that make the planning period a worthwhile experience — including picking items for your wedding registry.
But before you get overzealous and fill your registry with over-the-top products you'll likely only use once, take a minute to think about what you want and need. To help you create your best wedding registry, we teamed up with Bloomingdale's for a complete guide to the most useful home goods: from a coffee maker that whips up a cafe-worthy latté with the touch of a button to a textured silverware set that will last for all the happy years to come. There's no question whether or not you'll use these buys. Grab your spouse-to-be, and click through to check out 12 of our must-haves.
