Wedding season is a upon us! Now is the time that couples across the UK are going wedding dress shopping and browsing banquet halls. It’s also the perfect time to start planning your wedding registry, so here are a few tips to choosing the right kitchen appliances for your wedding registry.
Consider All Types of Budgets
Every kitchen product on your wedding registry does not need to be a large or small appliance. Even toasters and coffee makers may exceed the budgets of your guests. So, be sure to include items that are not electronic on the list. Glasses, tableware, utensils, measuring cups and mixing bowls are very affordable items that any newlywed couple will need in their new home.
Keep In Mind The Size Of Your Kitchen
When putting together a wedding registry, it is easy to go a little bit overboard. When it comes to all types of kitchen appliances, it is best to exercise a bit of restraint and ensure that you only register for as many items that will fit in your kitchen. If you have a smaller kitchen, try to limit the amount of small appliances on your list – unless you have plenty of storage room for putting them away when they are not in use.
Predict How You Will Use Your Kitchen
Are you a busy couple, who tends to order takeaway more often than cooking meals at home? Then, you should reconsider registering for an expensive set of pans. Are you and your spouse actually interested in experimenting in the kitchen? Then, by all means, ask for a pasta maker or pizza stone. Just be sure to keep in mind how you actually plan on using your kitchen in years to come, in order to create a registry that really suits your needs.
Plan For the Future
Most couples register for items that they need at the moment, and don’t really consider their needs years down the line. It is important to consider where you will be in five or ten years – especially when registering for large appliances that will last for a long time. You may only need an under-counter refrigerator now but if you’re planning on starting a family, consider registering for a freestanding or American-style fridge.
