Ok Ladies,

 

So I know there have been many threads discussing this topic, but I would like to get a summary of how many brides have registered or not, and whether you wish had if you didn't.

 

I personally debated on this topic, and after ready many threads on this decided to do a small registry.

Hi!

 

I hope you're talking about registering for gifts (sorry I'm a little slow today haha). Anyway, my DH and I decided against a gift registry as we felt our family's presence was gift enough for us...of course that didn't stop them from giving us cards filled with money anyway lol but they were not obligated or expected to give us anything and since DH and I had been living together for 5 years prior to the wedding, we already had everything we needed anyway.

Not planning to, unless MAYBE we do a small one after we return. That way, it's clear that we do not expect guests traveling to the wedding to give us a gift, and only if we do decide to have an AHR. Otherwise, for us it seems a bit much.

Yes, we did...this was a fun thing to do. I dragged FI to Crate and Barrel. It was a moment to see him squirm...haha, actually it was really cute to see what he liked and he kept me grounded. I didn't really expect to get anything, but I have, and at least I was able to pick stuff we like. I can't hurt. If people want to get you something they can..if not they won't.

 

My girls are throwing me a shower and we are having an AHR...so it made sense to do it for us.

Yes we definitely did. People are throwing me showers like its a traditional wedding & we are having a big AHR, so I am treating it like any other wedding. As always, I don't feel that people have to purchase things from it, but for those who look for guidance when gift giving, I think it is fine to have it for them to choose from. To me its just like if our wedding was at home.

We didn't because we didn't need any more crap cluttering up the house. Various people gave us a hard time about not registering (among other things), but we didn't really care what everyone else wanted or said we should do. Register if you want, not because people are badgering you to do so. Your wedding, your final say.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
