Five Registry Must-Haves

Fall wedding season means a few things around Borsheims. Celebrating couples’ newest chapter to their love story. Marveling over rings and wedding bands. Our Semiannual YES! Event. And helping couples find the perfect gifts to register for.

Our gift registry covers everything from everyday dinnerware to crystal and designer cookware. Borsheims knows often your wedding isn’t the start of building your life together. Some couples already have many items and don’t think they need to register for some of the “basics”, later realizing they really could use a fancy platter or serving item. Think of these as the add-ons you don’t think about often — the fun stuff.

To combat this gift registry regret we asked recent bridal registrants what five items are must-haves they wish they would have thought to include.

A Nice Serving Pitcher

You’ve come a long way from drinking things out of Gatorade coolers. Buy a grown-up pitcher to serve all your friends with when they stop by to congratulate you and your sweetie. They can even double as a flower vase or decorative piece when not in use throughout the year. And as a gift that keeps on giving, you can use it throughout the year and fill it with your festive napkin rings.

Solid Serving Tray or Platter

Now that you two have become “one”, holiday entertaining means two families, both sets of friends and surprise guests (you can’t leave out that coworker who didn’t fly back home). Durable yet fashionable serving trays and platters make sure transporting all that extra food from kitchen to table is a breeze.

Round Salad Bowl

Getting married is the perfect time to upgrade your kitchen arsenal, particularly items that get a lot of wear. Toss that salad bowl you purchased at a big box store and opt for a rustic wooden or chic metal one instead. Lettuce never looked so good.


Registrants should put a variety of vases on their list including smaller bud vases, medium vases for your leftover flowers from the wedding, and larger ones for full-on bouquets. Doubling as decorative pieces when not filled with flowers, vases add an extra focal point in any room.

Two or Three Picture Frames

You will have TONS of gorgeous photos from your big day and other wedding-related events. Show them off in an equally gorgeous frame. Be sure to get a few different sizes and a mix of horizontal and vertical.

Barware & Ice Bucket

Class up girls night, wine night, guys night, heck any night with some quality barware and a handy ice bucket. Because who wants to trek all the way back to the kitchen just for a cold drink. Extra points if they match your new serving tray and pitcher 🙂
