Planning a wedding can be stressful: Among the guest list, venue and catering, there are a million details to keep track of. Though we can't guarantee it won't rain on your beach wedding in Tulum, we can help you get exactly what you want when it comes to finding all of the kitchen gadgets and decor you desire.

There are many places you can register for your wedding, but not every shop has what you're looking for. So we've compiled a list of our favorite registries based on selection, price, rewards and availability. Depending on your style and taste, you can then decide what works best for you and your betrothed.

Here's where to register to get the dream kitchen you've always wanted.

① Anthropologie

Say goodbye to boring white dishes and basic silverware and hello to one-of-a-kind pieces from Anthropologie's wedding registry. You and your loved one can stock up on mugs, glassware, storage containers, bar accessories and more—but not just any old tableware, rather stylish items like hammered brass flatware, latte bowl sets and imprinted water glass sets. If you're the couple who's all set in the gadget and appliance department but is looking to own modern pieces, this registry is for you.

② Amazon

It's now even easier to register for your favorite brands and products all with a click of a button. This also comes in handy when you have your eye on a few different pieces that aren't available at the same retailer. Like that Instant Pot you've had your eye on. Bonus: Amazon also offers incentives for registering with the site, like 20 percent off your next purchase after the big day and a 180-day return policy in case you get cold feet about that Vitamix six months down the road.

③ Sur La Table

If you're a couple who is seriously passionate about cooking, this is the registry for you. The retailer offers thousands of products in every price range from top-name brands like Le Creuset, All-Clad and KitchenAid. Bonus: Sur La Table offers some pretty sweet perks, like exclusive gifts and 10 percent savings after your big day.

④ Wayfair

This site isn't all furniture and home decor options; it also stocks an extensive list of kitchen products. Couples can register for just about everything, including cookware, bakeware, small appliances, kitchen tools and cutlery. It's the ideal registry for couples who love spending time in the kitchen and need items like this eight-cup food processor and 15-piece knife set. Bonus: Newlyweds have six months after the wedding to take advantage of a 10 percent completion discount.

⑤ Pottery Barn

If you love to personalize things, then here's your perfect match. Pottery Barn has endless monogram designs that allow couples to register for customized items, such as these stemless wineglasses and drink coasters. It has an extensive collection of dinnerware, serveware and table settings. Only drawback? It's lacking in the appliance section. 

⑥ NewlyWish

Can't agree with your future Mr. or Mrs. on where to register? Instead of couples therapy, try NewlyWish. Signing up gives you access to more than 50 brands and specialty items beyond what department stores offer, so you both get what you want. Choose from appliances such as the PancakeBot, Ninja blender and KitchenAid mixer. The company also offers preset Starter collections filled with basic essentials.

⑦ Crate & Barrel

For a modern and sophisticated look that won't break your guests' bank, Crate & Barrel is the place to be. Shop for kitchen essentials, like your dinnerware set and measuring cups, then splurge on a few extra pieces, like a convection toaster oven and professional sous-vide machine. Whether you're starting from scratch or growing your collection, this registry has all the stylish yet practical options you need.

⑧ The Container Store

Although you might not be able to register for the latest sous-vide machine here, Container Store is a great option for couples who already have their desired appliances and gadgets but want to get organized in the kitchen. From refrigerator to pantry to closet, it has everything couples need to maximize space, especially if they are moving into a new abode. The site also provides Starter Kits with all the essentials. And after the big day, couples receive an additional 10 percent off items that weren't purchased from their registries.

⑨ Williams-Sonoma

This store is your one-stop shop for all the high-quality kitchen equipment you'll fancy as you enter into married life. From waffle irons and espresso makers to immersion blenders and sous-vide machines, you'll be whipping up gourmet meals in no time. You can also add cookware staples, like this Le Creuset signature cast-iron round dutch oven, and cutlery that will last a lifetime, like this Shun Kaji 11-piece knife block set. Bonus: For all those gift cards you'll receive, you get 10 percent off all purchases for six months after your wedding day.

⑩ Bed, Bath & Beyond

While the vibe might be a little more casual than your typical home department store, BBB has a huge selection of, well, everything: kitchen accessories, bakeware, storage containers and even fun gadgets like a digital thermometer and mandoline. It also has a decent selection of dinnerware, glassware and almost any appliance you can think of, like this air-fryer. Bonus: Easily let everyone know where you've registered with the store-provided complimentary announcement cards.

⑪ Macy's

With more than 700 locations nationwide, this department store is an easy place for guests to shop whether they prefer to do it in person (here's looking at you, Aunt Debbie) or online. It also carries a huge selection of brands, including Martha Stewart Collection, Rachael Ray, KitchenAid and Keurig. Bonus: Registered couples receive Star Rewards from gifts purchased for them. Sounds like a win-win to us.
