    I agree with everyone above. Creating a registry is really fun. You can go crazy with that scanner gun at the stores and have a blast. There will more than likely be someone who is or is not attending your wedding that will want to buy you a gift, so go for it. I unexpectadly had a lady from the church I grew up in 12 years ago send a gift from Bed Bath and Beyond last week, so you never know.

      I would definetly register, people are going to buy you gifts whether you want them to or not and you might as well get something you want or need rather than a bunch of junk you have to return.

      We had the same thought about not wanting people to spend more money, but the majority of people we invited aren't coming to the wedding and we know they'll want to get us something. We'd really prefer cash, because we'd like to buy a bigger house,but there are still some things we need.

      I think we're going to register at linens n things and macys

        I kind of feel the same about the registry - they're paying enough to come see us get married. However, I think if they want to I'm ok with it (lol). We will probably either set up a savings account for a downpayment on a house, or else set something up with Tammy so they can make a 'donation' for our honeymoon. I don't think its something I'll ask for though..

          I felt really bad for registering, but everyone kept asking us where we are registered. I don't want to ask for gifts b/c just being at our wedding is enough. :) We are going to register at 3 stores and one charity.
          I say register so that way the people that want to buy you gifts can

            Same thing here. People wanted to know wear we were registered and I'm having a shower... BTW! I think you can register at home depot. My fi made fun of me bc I mentioned it, and I looked into it. I think its just listed under gift registry rather than wedding!

              So I am in agreement with everyone else about this situation... register. Thise that want to buy a gift will do so, no one will feel obligated. While Maurice and I have lived together for more than a year and had seperate housholds prior to that, we'd still like to upgrade.

              I registered at Target, Fredericks's and V.S. for shower and a honeymoon site for the wedding. many people will want to give you something whether invited or not. Take advantage of this moment!
