Wedding Registries...

Recommended Posts

Ok, so we are going to try an finally go out and do our wedding registry after much input from friends and family pretty much saying its a must, even though we werent planning on doing one, lol. I had a convo with a friend yesterday saying she wouldnt put linens (like bed sheets) on the registry, bc thats too personal. But I thought that was a popular itemhuh.gif So, I had a few questions for you ladies. Im trying not to end up with a whole bunch of stuff we really dont need.

 

1. What items would you NOT put on a registry?

 

2. Is there a price limit on the items you registered for or maximum # of items to put on the registry?

 

3. Did you do your registry all online or the old fashioned way (actually going in the stores and scanning)?

 

TIA

Oops sorry, when I tried the search function I kept getting a 'database error'! I did see a couple of the threads you mentioned already, but I still had ?s. I'll look through the other ones. Thanks

Twinkle, I am with Maura here. I have never heard of linens being TOO PERSONAL. That is just crazy talk! don't listen to your friend.
I'm registering this weekend, too (not sure where yet), and linens are prob #1on my list. LOL. We already have a ton of stuff so I doubt we'll register for lots of stuff. Maybe a formal dishware set (china)

My parents went to a wedding recently where the bride and groom registered for a massive plasma tv. Now that is what I call "personal." (and weird!) lol

I also wasn't planning on having a registry, but like you, we were told by friends and family that they would like us to have one. So two weeks ago we went to BB&B and my dear FI took the gun and scanned 18 PAGES worth of stuff!! So now it's my job to go through and delete the stuff we don't really need through the online version.

I am leaving on the linens (I don't think they are too personal!), home decor, and kitchen items. I know when I am shopping from a registry I like to have tons of options available, both in price and items because for me, I base my shopping on how well I know the couple. So...while a nice aunt might buy some fabulous sheets, it would be great for a co-worker to be able to get away with some mixing bowls!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
