I was just wondering how it works for gift etiquette. We've sent out 58 invitations and are starting to receive some RSVP's back. My question is, are people who are invited to the wedding but don't attend expected to send a gift? The FI and I were wondering about this sort of thing and I was wondering what kind of experiences some of you had with this. I personally don't expect a gift from those who are coming to our wedding in Jamaica, but possibly gifts from others who aren't coming.
I'm just wondering about this because we're thinking about registries. Do we bother registering somewhere? What do you think?

If you don't expect gifts from those attending your wedding, but your guest see that you're registered somewhere, they will think you're expecting a gift??
I hope this helps??

We are also established with a house but we registered for a nicer set of dishes (not china but a fun set), more towels and sheets, better set of cookware, table setting stuff, nice serving ware, etc.
Hope this helps

We registered before we sent out our invitations. I didn't send out WHERE
we were registered, BUT one of FI's parents friends already sent us a nice
gift from our registry. I think people will want to send you gifts and if you
are registered at least you will get some things you want or need. I recommend
Bed Bath and Beyond. They have everything there, plus most people use their
20% off coupons
