I am not enjoying the registry process.

Recommended Posts

Not at all!!! Is there an alternative to registering at a department store? At first I was all excited and went to sears on the weekend with my FI only to find out that anything we need is like $75 or more!!! I'm sorry, but for shower gifts I find that to be too much and don't want to ask that of anyone. Two showers are being thrown for me, one for my Moms side of the family and the other from my FI's side of the family. Ugh. I like the idea of registering for "honeymoon" things like in the sticky but I'm from Canada and I can't find something similar for Canadians. PLUS, we're not having a honeymoon, our wedding week is the only vacation we are getting. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

We don't have either of those, I guess the equivalent would be Home Sense...only I'm afraid it will go under like Linens N Things did!!

I registered at the Bay, Zellers and Homesense. They're all part of the same registry. It worked out well for us. We had the same concerns...things were just too expensive. But we found many items for like $40-$60 which we thought were more appropriate.

 

Good luck!

I don't have any solutions for you except some of the solutions already made (e.g., Bed, Bath and Beyond).

 

I despised the registering process. My FI and I have owned homes (yes we are on our second home) together and when we moved we had to buy a lot of new stuff to stage our house. Plus when we bought the first home I was working part time at Crate and Barrel and took advantage of thier very nice employee discount to buy a lot of the stuff for our new home. So, all of our kitchen stuff (in particular) has held up very, very well. It was torture to come up with enough things at a range of prices that we needed.

 

Bed, Bath and Beyond was my lifesaver for the lower-end of the price range.

What about registering for things that you can do at the resort or a spa near the resort ie: couple massages, mani/pedi, or facial or activities that may cost extra like scuba or jet skiing.

A lot of places also have an online registry. So your guests can order it offline and then just have it shipped to you or to themselves and they can bring it to you. Just a suggestion.

    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
