Let’s be honest. Creating a wedding registry is one of THE most fun parts of planning a wedding. You get to shop without the guilt, and register for items you and your future spouse genuinely can’t wait to use. But that got us thinking: With so many fun items out there to choose from, what are brides MOST excited to get? We polled our Woman Getting Married readers to find out what your #1 wedding registry item is, and paired them with our favorite Zola picks. Zola is one of the best wedding registries out there, with an amazing selection of wedding gifts that work for every style. We also love how easy Zola makes it to start a honeymoon fund (something brides say they love having), where you can register for everything from flights and snorkeling lessons to Airbnb gift cards.

Whether you’re looking for the latest kitchen gadget, the softest towels, or help getting the honeymoon of your dreams, Zola really will become the only registry you’ll need. Plus, with free shipping and returns (their unique exchange program will also let you exchange gifts before they ship, making the entire process super hassle-free), price matching, and a 20% post-wedding shopping discount, they make the entire process super hassle-free. TIP: Once you’ve set up your wedding registry don’t forget to take advantage of Zola’s free suite of wedding planning tools, such as their innovative Guest List Manager (which will keep track of who gave you what and help you send out all those thank-you’s), personal wedding websites, and hundreds of matching save the dates and invites to choose from. Seriously, planning your wedding in ONE place just got so much easier.

Without further ado, here’s what brides say they are looking forward to receiving the most!


Wedding Gifts Towels
Towels as Wedding Gift

“Our current towels are basically rags. The running joke in our house is whether or not the towels will make it until the wedding…”-Simone

Stand Mixer

“Did you even get married if you don’t have a KitchenAid stand mixer sitting in your kitchen?! Lol. It’s always stuck out as a classic to me…I want to recreate all the things I’ve seen on The Great British Bake Off!“-Desiree


“There is a beautiful china set that I’m dying to receive! I know china is a little old school… [but] my fiance and I both love hosting and I like going all out and make people feel special.”-Alicia


“Our Vitamix! I cook all the time and had read a lot about how powerful and fast Vitamix is, it has totally lived up to the hype! It’s been especially great for turning all my leftover veggies into soup and giving them new life. My old blender couldn’t handle that.”-Lisa

Speciality Appliances

“We registered for an air fryer and are obsessed with it. It’s amazing!”-Christina
