Since six of our closest couple friends have gotten engaged in the last 10 months, we have heard a lot about weddings. I feel well briefed on possible venues all across Canada, the benefits of a brunch wedding over a dinner, and where the best dress store in each major city is. Today we are talking about one of the less- discussed subjects, the registry. Personally, I think you need one, but I am not here to make that case. It is now quite common for couples to live together before marriage so I have compiled a list of registry items for the bride and groom to be who already live together (and likely have most of the necessities).
