    I have a question, we are registered with Honeymoonwishes.com and Bed Bath & Beyond. On our Honeymoon Registry guests can contribute cash towards our trip for anything we want to use the cash for. This made sense to us since we already have every imaginable piece of home appliance as it is. We also listed that "We Welcome Gift Cards" from Bed Bath & Beyond. I don't know if this is appropriate. Does it sound like we're asking for too much CASH? We're having an AHR in May 09', so my BM's are telling me that I should register for GIFTS because of this. I really don't know what to do...? What do you guys think?

      I think that you should have a mix of things. Some people just like to get something that they can put in a box and wrap. They like the physical gift that they can give you and your BM's might be right that the AHR might be a place people want to bring a 'box' to. But- this is from someone who would like to refuse to register at all an is being told they have to. lol You could just add some small things on there to make ppl happy... idk

        I very reluctantly registered as well. We did say gift cards welcome, but only from stores we registered at (which is 2).

        IMO, I wait until the last minute to buy gifts (I'm a procrastinator) and gift cards are the best, but I always feel tacky giving them because they scream "I waited until the last minute and don't know you well enough to pick out your gift". So, I think that if you ask for them you are saying "it's ok to give me a gift card". Does that make any sense?

          Thanks guys!
          I think what I'll do is wait awhile and register for actual gifts later on. Closer to the wedding date.

            I agree that a mix of actual gifts and gift cards are a good idea. Personally, I love gift cards (receiving just as much as giving) because I like the thought that I can use them when I need them.
