Wedding registry choices, particularly stemware and appliances

Carrot | Nov 29, 200103:11 PM     14

Okay, so I am getting married in the summer and with that comes a once in a lifetime (?) chance to get the home appliances, stemware, and cookware that I have been drooling over and never could afford. Of course, the venues for procuring this stuff are fairly standard (and I am NOT interested in registering all over the place). We are looking at Williams Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, and Bloomingdales. I am seeking chowhound opinion about several items:

STEMWARE I want to register for some of the delicious Riedel crystal, available at Williams-Sonoma, but should I get the Burgundy, the Bordeaux, or the Chardonnay. Any other suggestions?

APPLIANCES: the only thing my fiancé wants is an espresso maker. What kind? What kind available at these venues? And what about the tried and true kitchen aid? Is there that much difference between models?

I know what pots and pans and knives to get. That is easy (Wustoff and All-Clad), but there are so many choices. Any suggestions?
