    Okay ladies, not sure if we should do a registry or not. Since it's a destination wedding and guests will be responsible for their own travel costs, their presence is a gift. However, what's the majority doing? Are you also doing a registry?

        We are registering only because some people will not be able to make it to our wedding and will want to buy us a present. We are making it really clear in the invitation that if you are coming your presence if enough of a gift so please do not pay attention to the registry. And plus there are people who may not be invited but know about your wedding (like coworkers, your boss, etc..) that want to buy you a gift.

          We weren't going to do a registry, but several people have asked so we did one through Carnival, and one at Bed, Bath & Beyond. We put on our website that we don't want a gift, but registered because people asked.

            We are registering, because people have asked, and, my mother and the MOH are going to throw a shower here in the US before the wedding.

              we are registering for the same reason of the shower and for guests who cannot make it.

                I battled with this forever...but finally decided to register because we knew certain people were going to get us stuff, so we figured we might as well get what we wanted and not just random stuff!

                I didnt want a shower either, but it was really important to my mom/grandma/etc so I'm going along with it & also registered for that reason.

                  I haven't been able to decide on this forever. Ive had 2 family members that arent coming ask if we are registered but is that enough to register I don't know, I think we will but I really don't want anyone to feel obligated to buying us gifts...one of the MANY difficult decisions in a destination wedding :)

                    i will personally register cause both me and my fiancee have a traditional upbringing and there is no point of spending al the money if it is not legal in the first place.

                      We registered for the same reason that most of you did - everyone was asking. Only immediate family was invited to the ceremony. Guests were invited to the AHR - some gave presents, many gave cash.

                      Vonnie6 - what do you mean when you say "no point of spending al the money if it is not legal in the first place."?
