How do you let people know where you've registered?

Recommended Posts

we didnt want to register at all, but my auntie is having a shower for me (didnt think i was gonna have one, no one mentioned it until last week!) anyways, she had a problem with us not being registered. she thought it was weird that we dont want gifts. i explained to her that it not that we would turn anything away (come one, everyone loves a gift!), but we live in a tiny 2 bedroom house with no storage, we're renting, and absolutely NO extra room for anything. i mean, we're over 30 and have both led lives before each other, and have a ton of cool stuff already. she still didnt quite get it, and finally i just decided to register at BBB, just enough stuff for 30-40 people at my shower. got a mix of expensive and inexpensive stuff, bed and bath related only (you can never have enough towels with 2 kids in the house!).

 

short story long, i told my mom, his mom, and my aunt who is throwing the shower, the registry number and i'm leaving it up to them to tell people.

I don't think thats tacky at all. We posted our registry on our website and the info was on my shower invites. We didn't register in time to send the info out with our formal invites. It wasn't my intention to include it anyways, however I had a ton of people calling/emailing me wondering where we registered and why we didn't include it in our invites ?? My point is, I think many people expect to have the registry info along with the formal invite.

WOW, you're brave! I wouldn't want to get any calls about problems with my kitchen/bathroom renos while on my DW.

I actually think that surviving the kitchen reno process with FI is why he proposed - we didn't kill each other, and if we can get thru that, we can get thru anything!

We are currently renovating our kitchen. I've been lucky enough to be able to work from home to supervise the whole thing but I can't imagine what people would do if they aren't home. NOTHING WOULD GET DONE!

You are brave for having them work while you are on vacay but I'm also quite jealous. It is a HUGE HEADACHE AND EXTREMELY STRESSFUL and you will be away for it all!

 

Oh, and about the post....word of mouth is the way to go. This way no one gets offended. I personally don't like formal invites with registry information.

I know a lot of people find it rude to send out the cards but personally I hate having to hunt down where someone is registered - I'd rather just get the card so that if I get them a present I can easily do it! But if you feel funny maybe put it on your website

We have a honeymoon registry for our wedding and a regular gift registry for my shower (my MOH wanted me to get "stuff" for the shower, plus she was all excited about the scanning gun thing). For the shower registry, i think she is putting information in the invitations. We included a link to our wedding registry on our wedding website.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
