Must-Have Wedding Registry Picks From Martha Brides
As you build your own wish list, take cues from these brides who put these items to daily use following their big day.
When the whimsical fashion designer wed rocker Gabe Saporta in May 2013, she did it in true fairy-tale style. The pair filled their registry with just as romantic picks, from pretty everyday china to practical and elegant baking tools.

KitchenAid’s stand mixer is the gold standard for couples. It handles cake batter, cookie dough, breads—and, for Erin, amazing yam pudding ($459, kitchenaid.com).
Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor
Erin also adores her Cuisinart food processor “because I love to make purees of vegetables” ($299, cuisinart.com).
The veggie-loving pair use the Paderno Spiralizer to make vegetable noodles from zucchini ($40, williams-sonoma.com).
Juliska “Berry & Thread” Dishware
The pretty design on Juliska’s “Berry & Thread” dishware goes with Erin’s modern fairy-tale sensibility ($146 for a 5-piece setting, juliska.com).

Handmade Copper Tea Kettle
Tea time is just more fun when the water comes from a copper tea kettle ($399, kaufmann-mercantile.com).

Athena registered for Staub’s whole line, including this fave piece, the chicken-and-veggie-ready roasting pan ($145, zwillingonline.com).
