10 gifts that should be on your wedding registry

If you're just getting started or starting again, the basics that fill your cupboards or stock your closets are still wonderful items to have on your list

Most Nigerian couples don't create a wedding registry, but rather allow guests to use their discretion when buying wedding gifts. But it is actually a part of wedding planning that is as important as setting up the reception venue.

This is because your wedding registry is an expression of your needs and hopes for the future -- as far as presents go anyway. It's really a pretty romantic notion, like having a hope chest or wishing on a star.

However, the gifts you register should be as practical as they are poetic. If you're just getting started or starting again, the basics that fill your cupboards or stock your closets are still wonderful items to have on your list -- especially if they come courtesy of people you care about and who care about you.
