8 Real Tales of Registry Regret to Consider Before Building Your Wedding Wish List



Building your wedding registry can be one of the more challenging pre-wedding processes you’ll encounter: Between sorting out the things you already have, deciding on the items you actually need and picking out a few fun extras, it can all get a bit overwhelming.

The goal, of course, is to emerge post-wedding with a bunch of stuff that’ll actually get good use in your new home together—as opposed to being left with a handful of gadgets that leave you wondering, “What were we thinking when we picked this?”

Before you start weighing the pros and cons of that coffee machine, mixer or whatever item you think looks really cool but may not be the most practical for you and your to-be, you may want to take a look at these tales of registry regret.

From fancy cake pans and glassware to ice cream scoops and a Soda Stream, these are just a few of the items that these eight real brides wish they would’ve thought twice about.
