The registry is probably the most daunting aspect of wedding planning to me. I find it more overwhelming than the guest list and I'm willing to bet that the seating chart will be a breeze.

However, I have had some amazing help this past week while trying to put it together. My future sister-in-law created an extremely detailed list of recommendations that I simply must applaud her for. It is not often that someone can leave me speechless, but this excel sheet had me gobsmacked. Honestly, it truly is a masterpiece.

I was curious after reading her list of suggestions what some of my other friends and family members would come up with in case there is another couple out there who needs help. I posed this question on Facebook; "What is one product you would tell someone to add to their wedding registry right now?"

Some of the responses were pretty straight-forward with several exclamation points following the reply:

  1. Ninja blender
  2. Double-sided waffle iron
  3. Griddle
  4. Panini press

  38. Nice beach chairs
  39. Glass-based snap shut storage containers - NOT plastic bases

Some of the answers were not a tangible item, but a gift card to redeem for a larger purchase or an experience:

  1. Experience gift (like a membership somewhere)
  2. Cash fund (honeymoon, house, etc.)
  3. A gift card to a local restaurant
  4. A gift card to Home Depot or Lowe’s
