Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer
The registry is supposed to be one of the least stressful parts of the wedding. Online shopping where you don’t have to spend any of your own money? YES PUH-LEASE! I know making the registry sounds simple enough but you’ll find that you forgot a few essentials. Yes, grab your pots & pans, your towels, and your new blender. But here are ten things I know most of you will forget to grab that are a must!
Irons & ironing boards are bulky, heavy, and really just take up too much room. Do yourself a favor and pick up a steamer! They’re much easier to use (so no more “I don’t know how to iron” from hubby) and compact enough that you can travel with them!
Speaking of travel, get you and your new hubby some nice new luggage for the honeymoon!
Mom isn’t going to be there for you and hubby to sew a button back on or patch a jacket in a pinch. Sewing isn’t as hard as you think it is. I think you’ll find that this kit will really come in handy!
You may have everything picked out for the inside of your home; but, be sure you don’t forget the outside. Get a cute small patio set that you and hubby can enjoy dinner or a drink outside.
By now, you’ve accumulated an unnecessary amount of plastic Tupperware from mom, dad, grandma, and not to mention your hubby’s family. Ditch the old well-used stuff and get some of the nicer glass Tupperware.
Your wardrobe is about to double with the addition of your spouse. You’re going to need more hangers! I’m always scowering the house looking for extras!
Every new home needs a good set of tools. You can’t imagine how many things you’ll have to repair and tweak along the way! At least pick up a small set of tools for the small stuff.
Odds are, you’re still using the same comforter that you’ve had for years. Do the both of you a favor and get a new one that you can both enjoy! (Same goes for the sheets. I’m sure your hubby would appreciate not having to sleep on your hot pink sheets you’ve had since high school.)
Because everything tastes better when it’s grilled. Your hubby will love it so much that you’ll get out of having to cook! Make him the grill master!
You both have so many important documents so please please be sure you keep it safe! Get a nice safe and be sure to keep it somewhere out of sight. You’ll definitely thank yourself in the long run!
