After the wedding itself, the second busiest aspect of planning is creating a wedding registry. It should be one of your fist tasks and you should make certain all of the essentials are included. A basic item all newlyweds should get is an amazing new sheet set — or two or three or four sets. You'll want to create a bedroom that's a cozy retreat for you and your new hubby, so use our handy list to start adding your bedding basics your wedding registry checklist.
We've done tons of research to find the best sheet sets for new brides, according to the best reviews on the internet. We also looked at thread count (we recommend no less than 200), materials, weave type, organic options, design, price, quality and more. Phew! There are a lot of sheets out there, and the materials run the gamut — organic cotton, long-staple cotton, chemical-free cotton, Egyptian cotton, microfiber, sateen, satin, flannel and more are among your choices. When you register, you peruse this list to decide what's most important to you for creating your new nest of newlywed coziness.
Once you've found your dream wedding dress, the search is on to find the perfect shapewear to go underneath it. We're not just talking about undergarments that suck you in, either — bridal shapewear is so much more than that. Wedding dresses come in all sorts of fabrics and colors (white being the most popular, of course) that show every dimple and crease, so a supportive foundation garment is key. Whether you're rocking a wedding dress with a plunging neckline, a low-back number or a strapless ball gown, Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales present the perfect opportunity to scoop up bridshapewear on the cheap. Not sure what type of smoother or shaper works best with your wedding dress? Ahead, check out our handy bridal shapewear cheat sheet, where you'll find all the bodysuits, slips, bras and bustiers you should be watching on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Here's the thing about your wedding day makeup: It's going to look incredible. And aside from maybe the heavy powder and false lashes, you're going to want to replicate and incorporate what the makeup artist did into your daily (or evening) routine. So, when you do your beauty run-through, work with your stylist to find out the exact products and colors she's using or go online and choose them together. A pretty eyeshadow palette can take a bride from her wedding day, to the evening reception, the honeymoon, and all the way to her first anniversary celebration (and beyond!). Here, we've chosen some of our favorite bridal eyeshadow palettes from Sephora, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and more

The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
