Planning a registry is a balancing act. On the one hand, you're building a list of what you need. On the other, you're trying to find some sort of cohesion. Mixing and matching a wide range of products makes color-scheming difficult. Soothe your stress with a tranquil range of hues—most home goods look good in blue. Crisp in saturated jewel tones, nautical in navy (and paired with white or stripes), dreamy in the shades of the changing sky, refreshing in pops of light and bright—blue's versatility has made it a staple, and especially for wedding registries. The classic color can be cozy or cool, sensible or splashy, or a mix of the four. So fill a bedroom and create a haven, or add to your kitchen for plenty of pop.

Click through for our favorite blue registry items—we swear, just the photographs will calm your planning nerves. Go ahead and make gifting a breeze with these stylish and practical ideas.
