14 Wedding Registry Picks for Your Bedroom + Bathroom

A few of our favorite bridal registry must-haves for your bedroom and bathroom.
  1. Flat Sheets

    For each bed in your home, plan on having one set of sheets on your bed, one in the laundry and one folded in the linen closet. Registering for three sets may sound like a lot, but you'll need them!

  2. Fitted Sheets

    If they don't come in a set, you'll need to register for fitted sheets to match your flat sheets. And remember, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet.

  3. Duvet Covers

    For hygiene's sake, a comforter needs a washable cover; register for two different duvet covers and matching shams so you can swap out your look.

  4. Down Comforter

    Upgrade from your cheapo polyester-filled comforter (or a down one that has lost most of its feathers) to a comforter filled with lofty Hungarian white goose down.

  5. A Mattress Pad

    Bedding basics are often forgotten when registering. A mattress pad will protect your mattress, repel moisture and act as an extra layer of softness.

  6. A Bed Blanket

    A blanket can be layered on to keep you extra warm on cold nights, or it can be used as an alternative to a comforter when the weather is warmer. Choose from a variety of fibers (cotton, silk, wool), depending on the climate where you’ll be living.

    Register for: 1 to 2 pairs

  9. Pillow Shams

    A sham is a more decorative type of pillow cover that is not meant for sleeping on. If you like the look of these, register for a matched pair.

  10. A Bed Skirt

    A bed skirt gracefully conceals your box spring and items stored under the bed. Opt for one that coordinates with the rest of your bedding (plain white is a common choice).

  11. Bath Towels
