    I'm 10 months out. I registered us at Target. I love that place! I'm doing it slowly online. We've been together for 11 years, and have had our own house for 7, so its more of the stuff we won't buy for ourselves. Basically when I'm bored I randomly go online and add a few things. Or when I see a show on TV and I'm like "wow, I could use that when we have xxx over"

    Have you picked your place in Philly? The FI and I recently went to a wedding for a good friend of ours at The Raquet Club in Center City. The place was to die for.

    Best of luck in your planning! Keep in mind when you're registering, put the pratical stuff on there, not the things you may use once a year. Where its nice to have that stuff, you'll appreciate having the things you will use everyday instead.

      Oh thank you!!! The mass will be at St Martin of Tours on Roosevelt Blvd, its such a huge, gorgeous church (do know it?). It reminds me of a church in Roma, with the stone, and detail. And our reception will be at a hall not to far from there, the Blacklake Room, P&P Caterers. So Im really happy with all that!

        I was wondering the same thing about registering. We aren't getting married until April of 09, is it too early to register? I thought it was but my friend is here from out of town and wants to come with and told me I should register now. Is it too soon??

          Good question about the registering! I am having my shower early (in September) b/c my MOH is moving accross the country in October, so I thought we should probably register before that, but I wasn't sure. That will be about 5 months before the wedding. Does anyone know if you can register at Home Depot?

            I think its ok to do it that early, I'm May 09 so thats what Im being told. It wont hurt anything, b/c you can delete or add things to registery....

              Several people told us to register as soon as we got engaged because people would be buying us gifts. Not true at all. Maybe because we did not have an engagement party. I did get something off my registry for my bday though. I took my FI and he ended registering for stupid things that I had to sneak off the registry. No, we don't need a $200 chair massager.

                For those who registered early and have all ready received gifts, how did you get the word out about where you registered in a tactful way. Typically isn't that announced in the shower invitations? I really like the idea of registering at Home Depot! FI will love that!!

                  I told my mom and my FIs mom and dad. That seemed to do the trick.

                      Good question! I registered before Christmas online for a few things and people bought us things for Christmas and my birthday (Christmas baby). Of course some of the things were seasonal and I later deleted them... So don't get attached to the seasonal things.

                      Tim did NOT want to go with me he had absolutely NO interest so my mom went with me when it came time to go in and "vamp" up my registries. We did my Macy's and Crate and Barrel in May (Halloween Wedding) and we "vamped" up my Pottery Barn last Monday. It was a lot of fun to do it with my mom because there were so many things that would say..."You'll never use that" or "I couldn't live with out that". The advice was invaluable!!!

                      Our registries were announced initially on our wedding website from the very beginning. Once we sent out our invitations and started getting the "Nos" we started finding gifts from UPS left on our porch and a few at my parents house! I may have to add some things because SOOO much is missing that there may not be anything left for my shower guests to buy!

                      Macy's has an AMAZING registry program!!! Consider it! I know a lot of the ladies do Bed, Bath and Beyond but I find that place WAY too overwhelming! !!!!
