It's easy to forget about the floor and just focus on major furniture pieces upon entering a room. Give your spaces some flavor by adding accent rugs to your wedding registry. Choose ones with interesting patterns or textures to add a pop and some warmth to your rooms.
Wedding registries always seem to skew towards the kitchen and linens. One thing that you don't want to forget when compiling your list is your bathroom's needs.
