Wedding gift registries are a popular way for engaged couples to select the items needed to jump start life as husband and wife. Guests of the bridal shower and wedding can confidently give gifts to the bride and groom, knowing that it is desired. Target is one of the supercenters that provides this method. Target's Club Wedd registry can be managed by the couple and viewed by guests in the store and online. The website provides couples with a checklist, suggesting items that most newlyweds need.
Prepare for dining as a newlywed with the help of Target's wedding registry checklist. Consider adding a dinnerware set, flatware set, drinking glasses, wine glasses, a water pitcher and Champagne flutes to your registry. Other dining accessories include tablecloths, napkins, napkin rings and placemats. Items needed for entertaining can be added to your Target registry as well. This includes things like an ice bucket, wine cooler, cheese platter, chip and dip set and condiment server.
Review Target's checklist for kitchen essential items. Consider selecting items for your registry like cutlery, a coffeemaker, blender, espresso machine, coffee grinder, toaster, stand mixer, slow cooker or food processor. Tools to consider for kitchen use include measuring cups and spoons, can openers, salt and pepper shakers, spice racks, dish racks, tongs, spatulas, wooden spoons, colanders and food storage containers. You may also need cookware such as stock pots and sauce pans, as well as bakeware like pans and mixing bowls. Think about the type of cooking you plan to do in your kitchen as a newlywed and what items will be needed on a daily basis.
