Even if you're planning a civil ceremony with your S.O., there's no doubt that wedding planning takes work -- whether you're a bride or a groom. With so many things to consider, from your wedding day ensembles and flower arrangements to invitations and seating charts, it's understandable if your wedding registry becomes one of the last things on your checklist -- and that alone is an entirely different undertaking.

First, there's the question of where to register. Do you and your betrothed tackle one large universal registry or register a number of items from different retailers? Then, it's what to register, much of which involves home goods you know you'll want to have on hand for the life you take on together. Don't worry, we've got you.

We took it upon ourselves to find the best places to create your wedding registries along with some of our favorite picks from each. Scroll down to see ET Style's picks from our favorite wedding registry sites, below. And if you happen to have a wedding guest or two who prefer to go off-registry, we've pulled together some great gift ideas for you to drop a hint before you say "I do."
