Setting up your wedding registry is a very personal process. Gifts that you receive from your wedding guests are things you want to honor the giver by using for a lifetime. Things you will use every day or on special occasions, and when sharing a meal or a drink with friends and family are the things you will cherish. There might be many household gadgets you already have, so create your registry with truly special items that will be a pleasure to give and to receive.


Dinnerware sets and individual pieces from Williams-Sonoma range from pragmatic designs that go with everything to more ornate choices that reflect the personality of the couple. A convenient registry dinnerware guide provides information on what you need for a complete dinnerware ensemble to serve 12 when you host on special occasions. Choose traditional white dinnerware in several textured white patterns, something with a simple band of color or perhaps with a monogram for a personal touch. Bold edgings and all-over patterns are also available. The registry guide includes several flatware selections so you can provide a full, elegant place setting for your guests.


To complement your food choices when entertaining, consider the drinks that you’ll serve. If you are hosting a cocktail party, you will want to have the proper glass for each guest, to share your favorite drink or theirs. Our registry favorites collection provides some great suggestions to get you started. Basic tumblers, old-fashioned and highball glasses, martini glasses and stemware will have you serving drinks in style. There is vintage-style etched glassware for those with a more traditional style, and a full selection of pitchers, mixing vessels and decanters. Don’t forget the bar tools. A full set of stainless-steel tools for preparing any type of cocktail, including a matching stand for convenient bar top storage is a great gift for the new host and hostess. For wine drinkers, every kind of glass is available. Add a letter or name to your personalize glassware to make any event more memorable. There are stemless tumblers for red wine, tall and wide cabernet glasses, taller and narrower glasses for a sweet sauvignon blanc or riesling with dessert, a variety of champagne flutes and coupes, and glasses that showcase chardonnay, bordeaux and burgundy wines. Every new couple needs a matched set of toasting flutes for the many causes to celebrate throughout their life together. Personalized glassware with your monogram will remind you of the first celebration you shared as newlyweds.


With dishes to eat and drink from, your guests will have what they need, but what makes the table truly elegant is the perfect linens and serving dishes. For special occasions, an attractive tablecloth really accentuates the festive atmosphere. Matching napkins are essential, and can be paired with a set of napkin rings for a table that gets down to the details. For less formal occasions, a table runner provides a bit of color and interest, and coordinating place mats protect your table.


When you’ve prepared a special dish for guests or a candlelight dinner for two, you will want an elegant way to deliver the food to the table. Serving dishes are an essential part of every registry. A large platter is the best way to serve a roast, and the registry guide has a variety of shapes and finishes to choose from. For side dishes, it is good to have a few large serving bowls on hand. A matching set of wooden or glass salad bowls will make each place setting complete. Odds and ends like chip-and-dip servers or condiment caddies make a wonderful addition to the registry, and a gravy boat with a warming base is a must-have for holiday dinners.


Whatever your style for entertaining or dining at home, the registry guide has something for you. With instructions for how to select the perfect items to complete your serving dishes, and monogramming available to make it yours, you can create a registry of gifts that are as much a pleasure for your guests to choose as they are for you to use.
