Veruca Salt, meet my wedding

Daddy, I want a wedding registry!

It’s gettin’ ’bout that time…registry time! You know, making a wish list and people just buy you things. I’m pretty stoked about all the nesting goodness that will soon occur. We made a list of all the things we could think of by a) brainstorming, and b) looking up advice online.

What’s that? You want some linkage? Your wish is my command. Here are two lists of suggested items. This one from the Knot is obsessed with bars. This one from eleGALA is actually my favorite of the two. Last, but not least, the Wedding Channel has a list of the top 10 items for which to register (rationale included!).

Now that you’ve seen the resource sites we used, here’s the amalgamate list we are using to register. We’ve dropped a ton of things that we don’t want or already have, plus added a couple of things that weren’t on there before.
