Getting engaged and marrying the love of your life is exciting enough, but then you get to put together a registry. Wayfair, an online retailers of home furnishing, décor and more, took a look at what couples across the country are putting on their must-have home goods lists, and then found what the most popular item in the state was. Some states are predictable — of course Vermont wants cheese plates. Still others are less so — Alaskans are particular about their coasters. But overall, the data is an interesting look into people’s lives, and possibly a helpful guide if you’re attending a wedding in the U.S. this year.
