We’re in wedding season, folks. An average of 2.4 million nuptial ceremonies are performed in the U.S. each year, with 44,230 taking place each weekend.
That’s a lot of vows, cake and chicken dances.
For many couples, it’s crunch time to knock out their to-dos before the “I Dos.” That means finalizing attendee lists, setting menus, communicating with vendors and filling out wedding registries.
When it comes to the registry, modern couples are ditching the candlesticks and china for blenders and cameras. They want products that fit in with their digital lives. (Fun fact: Today’s couples take almost three times as many photos as older couples did.)
The hottest products on Best Buy’s wedding registry right now include a variety of appliances and tech gadgets. There must be a lot of newlyweds out there cooking up some wicked waffles and tasty smoothies.
Here are the top 10 items showing up on the Best Buy registry:
- 1. Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker
- 2. Ninja Professional Blender
- 3. Oster Waffle Maker

- 9. Sony Blu-ray Player
- 10. GoPro Hero 4 Silver
Planning on attending a wedding this summer? Don’t be “that guest” – remember to show up with more than a card. It’s a good idea to select gifts from the couple’s registries, spend an appropriate amount and pool your money with friends when you can’t find something in your price range.
