If you are preparing to get married then you are likely making a list of all the items that you and your future spouse should add to your wedding registry. Many couples who are already living together may feel that they have nothing to register for since they already have their own place. However, if you are new to living on your own, there are likely many things that you need to make your kitchen a usable space for preparing food.
This article will give you some ideas on how to create Your Best Kitchen on a budget by registering for items for your wedding. Here are some items that every kitchen must have.
This type of a mixer is now a household staple. Everyone has a kitchen-aid mixer and if you don’t have one, it is highly likely that you want one. While it is “just” a mixer, it is quite pricey as it is an outstanding mixer that will last for decades. Whether you are a professional baker or a novice cook, this mixer is a great tool to have in the kitchen.
Pots and pans
It is tough to cook any meal without having the proper pots and pans. Make sure that you register for pots and pans that receive good reviews from consumers and also offer a manufacturer warranty. You will also want to make sure that your pots and pans are highly rated as good cookware if you plan to cook meals on a nightly basis.
Eating food will be quite difficult if you do not have the proper silverware to do so. Be sure to register for a large set of silverware so that you can accommodate hosting family dinners or having friends over. If you have a large family, it is a good idea to register for multiple silverware sets so that you can be sure to have enough when you host a holiday or birthday function.
Plates and serving dishes
Just as it is important to register for silverware, you will want to make sure that you also pick out dinnerware and serving dishes for special occasions. In addition to having fancy dinnerware, you will also want to register for more casual plating that you can use regularly.
Cups and beverage serving items
Again, if you plan to host in your lifetime you will want to make sure that you register for enough cups and serving items as needed. You may find that you are registering for items that you may think you will never use. For example, that large orange juice carafe that matches your cups may not seem like a necessity at the moment but on Christmas morning when you are having your in-laws over for brunch, it will be nice to have.
When registering for wedding gifts be sure to add items that are critical such as silverware, plates, and cups. These items you will use on a regular basis. It is also a great idea to register for items that you would like to have but may not necessarily need for daily life such as an orange juice carafe.
