When preparing to create your registry, depending on your situation, it may be better to register at several different places, both nationally for those out of town guests, as well as local stores.

Also, more stores have online wedding registries that you can sign up for as well. For the couple first starting out, below are some of the basic things to remember when creating your wedding registry.

It is best to register for 8-12 for hosting meals, as well as the possibility of breaking plates over the years to come. Remember to register for corresponding salad plates, bowls, mugs, serving dishes and platters. Be sure to choose colors and styles that fit your lifestyle and tastes. For example, if you don’t do much fancy entertaining, then registering for china may not be for you.
