    Just a quick question - I'm sorry if this is a redundant question, I haven't quite gotten the hang of how this site works yet

    I'm wondering if it's tacky to register when only family basically will be at the wedding itself, but we intend to have a reception for everyone else when we get home?

      I don't think it is tacky, especially if you are having a reception. Some people will want to buy you a gift and will be looking for your registry.

        I don't think it's tacky at all. We didn't want to register either but we also knew that we would be having at least one bridal shower. I am thankful we did register b/c we would have ended up getting some things we weren't happy with.

        You could also try searching for "shower etiquette" or "bridal registry" using the search function in the top right hand corner!

          I think you should register. It would be helpful for people attending your bridal shower or reception.

            I didn't want to register at all, but I was told by family and friends that I HAD to. lol So, I did. And it does make sense. Some people are going to want to buy you a gift. It might as well be something you need/want.

              We weren't going to register, but friends/family started hounding us, so we did, at the Bay and Linens n' Things. Now L n' T is bankrupt! And it turns out I am goign to have a shower and a lot of people want to come who aren't invited to the wedding which I find It's a very small wedding, so only about 16 people are coming.
              I feel uncomfortable about it, but we do also want to have a big party in the New Year, so I'm hoping they'll all come to that too and we'll feel like we're able to make them all a part of it afterward and treat them too. :)

                That's pretty much exactly what my train of thought was. Thanks so much ladies :)

                  I would say to definitely register! On your invites to the AHR, just put your website on it, and have your registry info on the website. I think that's what a lot of girls on here are doing.
