20 Must-Have Kitchen Tools on Your Wedding Registry

Okay, you’re engaged — yay! After setting a date, one of the first things you’ll do is register. And don’t feel like you’re jumping the gun by getting ahead. It’s important to register right away, as people will begin planning showers (which means including your registry information on the invitations), sending engagement gifts, etc. Also, registering in advance lets people take advantage of sales, holidays and other gift-giving occasions in the months leading up to your wedding.

After the china, crystal and silver (the glitz and glam), it’s the un-sexy but must-have kitchen utensils that are easy to forget and impossible to live without.
