wedding heirlooms to complete your wedding regsistry

Creating your wedding registry is a right of passage while planning your wedding. Carefully selecting items that you and your partner love, need and want. From cutlery to cups, you'll need it all and who doesn't love Crate and Barrel.

Beyond the dishes and mini muffin pans, we also strongly suggest adding a few heirloom items that can stand the test of time not only in style but also in quality. Choose pieces that will belong to your family for several generations to come. Yes, some of these items have a higher price point and will require group gifting – and that's okay.

Adding Original Art to your wedding registry will be one of the best decisions you've ever made. You'll have it and it will be loved forever. Speaking of original works of art, there may be paintings below that will be sold out by the time you read this. Peruse all the available artwork here.

Swiss Diamond black cookware set where no oil is required for cooking

Please, please register for a high end set of pots and pans. You'll have them for longer than you can imagine. If we were to register again we'd select the Swiss Diamond 10-Piece Cookware Set.

Why? Because they look amazing and they have a patented, diamond-reinforced nonstick coating that's so efficient that virtually no oil is required for cooking, promoting healthy, low-fat cooking and easy cleanup.

Even if you choose to use oil, all you'll need is the smallest amount of high-smoke point oils. Made of cast aluminum, the pots and pans cook food evenly without hotspots and resist warping. Plus, the reviews are amazing.

How much do you LOVE this color in Toffee Delight? I am so into this deliciously colored mixer, the soft metallic glow with the sparkles will definitely catch everyone's eye.

In addition to your  KitchenAid mixer, you should also register for a few attachments. Since it will be a kitchen staple, you might as well use it for everyday cooking. These powerhouses are not just for baking.
