9 Things I Wish I Had Put On Our Wedding Registry

9 Things I Wish Had Registered For |

Hi, lovelies, Emma here! When Andrew and I registered for our wedding, we had no idea where to start. Luckily, we managed to pick out things we needed, wanted, and still use every day! But after seven years of bliss and two wonderful kiddos later, we’ve added a few things to our home ourselves and it made me realize I could have used them right from the start. So, we’ve teamed up with Crate and Barrel to bring you nine things we wish we would have added to our registry list, in the hopes it helps you when you go out to create your own. I created this list and realized later how everything pertains to the kitchen. I guess now I can cook better, I have figured out how to make meal prep easier with a toddler and newborn, and I have had time to see what works for our kitchen. Anyways, I hope this helps you get started with your own registry! Enjoy!
