Wedding registries are not just about fine China anymore! Whether you go for a traditional registry with items for the home or go for cash funds and experiences for the honeymoon, it’s important to pick what feels right as a couple. To help you narrow it down, Charles the Butler shared all his must-have items to include on your registry, from dishes to cutlery to bedding and towels.
