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

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!
