When you start adding things to your wedding registry, you are choosing items that will make life for you and your loved one a little more comfortable as you start your new life together. Home gadgets are incredibly handy to have, and they can make daily life a whole lot easier for you.

We have five top smart devices that every wedding registry needs to be complete – check them out below.

Google Home Smart Speaker with Google Assistant

These have been rising in popularity recently, with the top two models being Alexa, from Amazon, and Google Home Assistant, from Google. These sit in your home, and you can ask them to perform a multitude of tasks to help you stay on top of things.

From making appointments in your calendar to calling up your contacts, to controlling the heating and the television, there isn’t much that they can’t do. They can even help you find new recipes for dinner. Many who have them find they are a massive help in their life, and a home assistant could be just what you need to start yours smoothly.

Neato Robotics Botvac D3 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

These are incredible, and as people have realized this, their popularity has surged. Over the years, the technology used in these powerhouses has been enhanced, leaving us with a fantastic little machine to help us keep the home clean.

One of the best things about them is the fact that you can control them using an app on your phone from anywhere – whether it’s at work or your local coffee shop. When you tell it to go, it will, and it maps out the layout of your home so that it knows where it is going.

Depending on the model you choose, there are some that are even able to go right up against the wall to clean the skirting and keep everything under control. There are even some that are perfect for homes with pets.


Whether you are both adventurers or you just love recording the moments that are most important to you, a GoPro is often the perfect companion for any couple. It can be mounted on your head or attached to a jacket, letting you capture everything and save every journey that you go on.

The image quality is great, and there are loads of different models to choose from, which means that you can find the one that best suits you and your partner’s needs.

Sonos PLAY:1 Compact Smart Speaker

If you both love to throw epic parties, or you just like to spend time together listening to your favourite songs, the Sonos Sound system could be the perfect addition to your wedding registry. You can get them as a set of two, or just one on its own, allowing you to create and modify your own ecosystem at home.

They can play simultaneously in different rooms, or you can have them play different songs. Whatever you like, they can accommodate you. They can also be controlled using your phone, which certainly comes in handy when you are throwing a party or just really don’t want to move.

Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote

TV boxes and sticks are great to have, and they allow you to stream all of the films and TV shows that you love seamlessly. Each offers different things, and having more than one often leaves you with a lot more choice.

The Amazon Fire TV stick gives you all of the standard catch-up TV channels (BBC, channel 4, etc.) as well as Amazon Prime TV, which is home to some really amazing shows, like American Gods, as well as movies you can purchase for your home library. The Google Chromecast is the same in terms of catch-up TV, but it also has the Google Play Store that allows you to purchase films and shows.

The Now TV box not only has standard catch-up channels, but it also gives you access to an ever-expanding range of Sky channels (live and catch-up) as well as Sky Movies, Sky Sports, and every kid’s cartoon channel you can imagine. All of it comes to you at a price that is way cheaper than going straight to Sky, too.

Your wedding registry is bound to be filled with really handy and important items for your guests to browse. Using this guide, we know you will be able to find a handy piece of tech that will change the lives of you and your partner for the better. With so much to choose from, you might end up spoilt for choice, or even adding all of them to your list!
