registering taking convincing

Recommended Posts

I am having trouble convincing my Fiance we should register.

 

He is from Europe, were apparently this is not common and since we live together he thinks it just seems greedy. I know that a lot of my relatives will want to give us gifts, especially those that cannot make it to our wedding and I don't want to end up with a fuzzy toilet seat cover or something like that.

 

Any ideas on convincing him? I swear I have tried everything, so has my mom and my brother and his Fiancee.

People will really want to get you gifts. It's so much easier and more fun for people to get things they know you need and want. I may check around on Wedding Planning - Wedding Dresses - Wedding Gifts - Wedding Website for some registering advice, but I think you should tell him that it's almost rude not to register and see if that will work.

 

It will be way better than just getting random things that don't match because that's what will happen if you don't register!

Errrr.... where exactly is he from ? I'm from France and registries are tradition ! This is actually the first thing people ask you when you tell them you're getting married : "where are you registered" !

What is he into ? For instance, my FI is really into electronics and motorcycle (Or boobs, yeah well no registry for that lookatme.gif). Sounds like a guy to me, lol. Anyway, if I told him, let's go make a registry at Best Buy or Cycle Gear, he would love me FOREVER.

Another option you have is honeymoon registry !! Some of them are really cool to customize. This is what we went for (we also already live together, and have been living without our parents since 15 years for me, 10 for him, so we really have everything).

I had the same problem - and my fiance and I don't even live together (and he is from the states). He thinks its greedy to register for some reason. We still did it - but he keeps wanting to take things off...just keep talking to him about it -slowly but surely it seems to be working for me...and the more people that tell him it is not greedy, the better

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • 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.
