Let's face it -- you're getting married and setting up a new home, so you need a lot of stuff. A blender, sheets, high-quality china and a deluxe coffeemaker are just a few of the items that you and your hubby will require to start off your new life together.

Unfortunately, since planning and organizing a wedding is a full-time job (plus, you both have to work for a living), you don't have an unlimited number of hours to peruse multiple stores to find all the products you're looking for. Thankfully, you can now build your wedding registry online. For modern couples, coming up with a list of needed goods only requires an Internet connection and a few hours of your time.
