Registry for both US and Canada?

Recommended Posts

My family is from the states and Sean's family is from Canada. Does anyone know of any places we can register that will work for both sets of guests? Any ideas, thoughts or previous experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Linens and Things does a Registry that you can buy gifts for both. It's great cause you can go back and forth on their website between US and CDN dollars which is nice.

 

Perhaps Pottery Barn as well? Not too sure about that one!

Keep on eye on Crate and Barrel too...I'm in your exact situation (except it's my family that's in the US and FI's family in Canada)...I'm registered with Crate and Barrel in the States right now but they're scheduled to open in Canada this summer and they told me my registry would be transferable.

The one at Yorkdale is the only one I've heard of so far....I'm sure other locations you'll start popping up after that though...

My family is in Canada but I live in the US - so i am struggling with this too. I recently had a friend get married in this situation, and she registered for Canada places (like the Bay) and had those gifts shipped to a Canada address (her own) and then registered at US places (Target, Bed Bath and Beyond) and had those shipped to a US address (parents). I thought this was fairly crafty!

 

How about postage? When you are in the US and inviting Canadian guests - where are you getting the Canadian postage to go on your rsvp cards? IN other words, if you put a US stamp on - it will not initiate from Canada, it needs Canadian postage (and vice-versa). Would love to hear how you guys got around this.

 

I'll be in Ottawa and Toronto next week, so I was thinking of getting some stamps and then putting those on the rsvp cards that will come from my Canadian guests...but if i wasn't going to be in Canada, i'm not sure how i would have handled that.

My future mother-in-law keeps suggesting we register at The Bay. For me, it seems more difficult and would have issues registering for items without seeing them. But glad to hear it worked... we may need to look into it.

 

Originally we were going to send a box of all the Canadian invites to my future-in-laws and have them put canadian stamps on the RSVP cards and then mail them out. In the long run... we decided to have the guests RSVP via our website, phone or email and skip the mailing to avoid the issue. Plus it saved postage... and this way we ended up having more direct contact with each guest.

    • 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?
