    Has anyone register at Lowe's/ Home Depo/ Walmart for Home improvement gift cards? Does that sound tacky to request gift cards? We were thinking adding that to our insert labeled "Venue Directions & Gift REgistry". I will have the list for Dillards, Macy's, Bed Bath & Beyond, Sears, JcPenney but i also wanted to put a section labeled "Home improvement gift cards"...

    As far as Bridal shower registry... Vicky and Fredericks.. but did you put your sizes on the insert for the invitation or asked for gift cards there as well....
    Trying to avoid being tacky or the makings of early bridezilla...

      We didn't technically "register" for gift cards. On our wedding website, I put where we are actually registered. And then I wrote "But, if you'd rather go the gift card route, we would especially appreciate them from Lowe's as we are currently remodeling our house"

        I just registered at Lowes for a few things that we need from there. Hoping that people will buy gift cards too. On the Bed Bath and Beyond registry you can register for gift cards, but doesn't look like Lowes has that option.

          I sort of think it is tacky to just ask for gift cards, but then I think it is fine to ask for gift cards if you register for other stuff. I know I am confusing.

            we've had a terrific reposnse with our cash fund at MyRegistry.com - we have a house improvement fund there, after we decided we really didn't want to start posting wedding registries all over the place. And it doesn't feel quite as tacky as asking for gift cards.

              I would call it your "remodeling fund" or something. There's nothing wrong with asking for gift cards. We decided to do a honeymoon registry on our website. It's called our "honeymoon fund" We aren't actually having a set "honeymoon" in Mexico, but are using the $ to do fun things in the area (swim with dolphins, snorkeling tours ect) It's your day, do what you want!!!!!!
