Building a registry isn't a one-size-fits-all experience for the millions of couples who marry each year. With endless products and potential experiences to help boost each couple's foray into marriage, registries can be seemingly overwhelming at first glance. According to The Knot 2020 Wedding Registry Study, about 40% of surveyed respondents felt some reticence requesting cash funds and other gift options. But, the process is rather fun if you know what to register for.

To help inspire your wedding registries, The Knot took data from each state across the country to discover trends according to regionality. In short, geographic location and entertaining styles are correlated, prompting couples to plan accordingly through their respective registries. For example, cake stands were a popular item in Louisiana (with King Cake being a tried-and-true New Orleans tradition), while slow cookers were a highly-requested home and kitchen product in Ohio—because, let's hear it for Cincinnati chili. The data also found that both Texas and New Jersey residents were big on registering for quality wine glasses. (For more insight into what real couples' register for, check out the most popular registry items, according to data from The Knot Registry Store.)

Connecticut and D.C. couples were fond of hosting brunches and dinner parties based on their selects, while California couples were likely inspired by Khloe Kardashian's hyper-organized pantry: OXO Pop Containers, a perennial favorite among storage solution-oriented to-be-weds, was the preferred registry product of choice in the state. In fact, you just might be surprised by your state's current favorite. Find it below, and get started on your registry here.
