I searched for this, but couldn't find it, so if someone could link me to a previous thread, I would SO appreciate it! If not, here is my question:
We are not including registry information with our invites OR on our site.. we are subscribing to the "your presence is present enough" philosophy, and have stated this on our site. HOWEVER, my mother is throwing me a shower, and she is adamant that we register.. saying that people have been asking her. The fact is, people will get us gifts (at least for the shower), and we have had the advice from many people that it is better to register for things you might want instead of getting a bunch of stuff that you don't, because you didn't register..
The problem is - I have NO idea about what to register for! Are there sample registry lists on here that I am just cluelessly missing? We are living in an appt. right now with limited space, but are hoping to purchase a home within the next 1-2 years.. so part of me would like to register for nice things for our future home.. but i have no idea what that might be! We do not want to register for our honeymoon.. and we're canadian.. so we are thinking Sears? I am honestly clueless.. and to make matters worse, my Fi won't stop complaining about it (I'm kind of excited about it to be honest).. bah.. advice ladies! haha

We also upgraded our kitchen appliances and pots/pans, plus asked for nice knives. And I finally broke down and just picked out a china pattern. It's cute and funky and I like it (went in thinking NO WAY will I register for that! lol).
We also registered for some nice towels... even a BluRay player! lol
pretty much anything is fair game! Definitely register though so you don't end up with a bunch of stuff taking up room that you don't want or like.
Hope that helps!

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
