Should we register?

That way maybe someone could give you a monetary gift and specify that you put it toward the canoe, or they could give a gift cert to that store.

My shower invites include the information and we have put it on our website. THat's that - enough people in my family know that if people are asking they can point them in the right direction!

I am not having a shower either. This is my second marriage and it just feels weird to me.
We are also not having bachelor/bachelorette parties. We were going to initally have the parties together but then I got pregnant and I couldn't have one....Jay was going to still have his but he is coming home from work right before we leave and we will have a bunch of stuff to do. So, he decided not to have one.
I know there will be people (like family members) who can't go to our wedding that will want to buy us something, but really we don't need anything. If they ask, I'll have to come up with something!

My point - even if you don't want it/don't need it/are uncomfortable with all of the attention/gifts, etc....people will want to do these nice/fun things for you! AND, when your friends get married, you will want to do the same for them (even if you can't attend their destination wedding
SO, go ahead and register, I'd say do NOT include it with invites, instead list it on website and tell people who are throwing you a party (but know that EVERYONE will ask).
Target was a perfect place for us to register - Target is everywhere, and they have a HUGE variety of things and prices. Plus, you can do it online and edit it online.

I am with so many of you on this. I am uncomfortable with a registry but it sounds like I am just going to have to be ok with it.

I really thought that we weren't going to register, but am starting to rethink it. My fiance is Chinese and money is a pretty common gift from his relatives, but my family is starting to ask about gifts and every time I tell them no, they say that if I don't register, they will get us something that we may not want. We will probably register at one or two places.

I plan on doing a honeymoon registry only as I don't need anything and we are having an At Home Party after the wedding instead of a At Home Reception, so I think the number of gifts will be considerably less than for a tradional wedding.
But I wanted to throw out an idea for those of you that are not aware: if you return an item on your Bed, Bath, & Beyond registry items then you get CASH. So you could register for items that you really don't have any need for and then return them for cash. Just a thought.

I would suggest NOT registering at Target, many of my friends have registered there and have had many issues returning items even if listed on your registry. We are registering at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and Macy's and then my FI is wanting to register at Lowe's or Home Depot for tools.
