Diana and Eric's Real Registry

Diana and Eric's wedding registry is all about starting anew. Since they've lived together for two years, they've acquired all the standard hand-me-down items from family and friends. "I thought this would be a great opportunity to return the favor, donate the items to my cousins, and register for a fresh start," Diana says. "We're focusing on loading up on the basics."

The Couple: Diana DeCicco and Eric Melton
Their Wedding: July 3 in Downers Grove, IL
Where They Registered: Kohl's
