25 Things You Have To Add To Your Wedding Registry

You're engaged! Congratulations! There were a few things I did when I first got engaged: immediately started dress shopping online, picked my bridesmaids, and of course started my wedding registry!

This is a great opportunity to get a fresh start with items that you have probably used since college. Making a registry doesn't have to be stressful! Remember to relax, have fun, include your fiancé, and register for your taste (not your future MIL's!)
