Tying the knot this year? Chances are that you’re already hard at work on your wedding registry. While we firmly believe that the items you and your partner request should meet the needs and wants of your home, it turns out that not all presents are created equal.
In a recent report, Bed Bath & Beyond offered a peek at its eight most popular wedding registry items. While we weren’t surprised by some of the leading items on the list (you’ll find the ever-popular KitchenAid Stand Mixer at the top of the ranks), it turns out that the most desired gifts vary from state to state.
Wary of kitchen registry regret, New Yorkers, for instance, would rather snag a Calphalon cookware set over an iRobot Roomba (a favorite pick among Californians). Pennsylvanians, on the other hand, would prefer to clean their floors the old-fashioned way with Dyson’s stand-up vacuum.
Want to know what’s on your neighbor’s must-have list? These are the top Bed Bath & Beyond registry items.

In a recent survey, Zola revealed that cookware was the number one item couples regretted not registering for the most. Couples in Connecticut aren’t about to let FOMO ruin their big day. You’ll find this 10-piece set high on their wish list.
KitchenAid 5 Qt. Artisan Stand Mixer, Amazon ($279)
In Mississippi and the better part of the Northwest, couples have plans of bonding by baking with KitchenAid’s beloved stand mixer, which boasts 10 speed-control ranges and comes in a rich range of bold hues.
