The Amazon Products to Add to Your Wedding Registry, According to Experts
The mega-retailer's wedding experts say these are the items to say "I do!" to.
It’s official: Wedding season is here.
If you’re one of the loved-up couples swapping vows this year (congratulations!), there’s a good chance you're going head-to-head with a seemingly endless to-do list. You have to pick your first-dance song, buy a cake knife, finalize the seating chart — you get the point.
But before you handle those final details, you might want to consider your wedding registry. Nowadays, there’s more that goes into creating a registry than picking out the fanciest China plates and silverware. Since more couples are moving in together before they say “I do,” couples have more freedom to register for items they really want instead of just what they need. But with hundreds — if not, hundreds of thousands — of options and only so many guests, picking items for your registry can be incredibly overwhelming.
To help streamline the process, we asked Amazon's wedding registry experts which buys they believe should be on every couple's list this year. Here are their ultimate registry picks.
