Let’s be real. The best thing about getting engaged (besides marrying your sweetie) is picking out your wedding registry. Setting it up is hands-down one of the most exciting and *fun* parts of planning a wedding. It’s the perfect chance for you and your boo to put together your ultimate wish list for everything you could want in your new home. But if you two are already living together, there’s no need to ask for another set of IKEA plates or more kitchen towels. Instead, use this as a time to treat yourself and do some serious upgrading with ultra-luxurious items. If you have no clue where to start, here are some ideas to add a few splurges, like an at-home barista to brew the perfect cup of coffee, a nice wine collection or your very own olive oil tree. Check out our must-have list to make your registry process as smooth and stress-free as possible, so you’ll end up with items that you both will truly enjoy.
