How to Create The Ultimate Wedding Registry in Chicago

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Julie Gordon is the founder of Inspiring Kitchen, a Chicago-based blog that provides plenty of tips for designing a dream kitchen. Gordon—who spent some 14 years working in the housewares industry— is also an expert in the art of wedding registry. We asked her to provide a few tips for getting registered like a pro.

Check out her tips, below, and consider starting a registry and one of these stores she suggested: Williams-Sonoma, Target, Sur la Table, Home Depot, and Bloomingdale's. And remember: "Think big picture," says Gordon. "Not where you live or how you live currently. If you think you will one day live in a space larger than 500 square feet, register for gifts with that in mind."
