Published March 5, 2013 | Updated June 30, 2015

Your wedding registry is designed for your guests to help you prepare for your new home together. It lets them know exactly what gifts you want and can also help them get an idea of your tastes. Use this checklist to cover all the basics when you're setting up your registry. You can register for these items all at one store or combine registries from multiple stores. Make sure you register several months before your wedding date to allow guests time to choose gifts, especially if you plan on having bridal showers before the wedding.
