My fiance and I have been together almost nine years, our home is pretty well established. While there are a few things I'd love to register for like a set of china and other various items. I don't feel right about registering for gifts, which is why I haven't to this point.

 

Several people have called to ask us where we are registered, I've told them that we're not registered and most have said they would like gift ideas.

 

 

Should I go ahead and register, even though we've been together this long and I've already sent out the invites? If do register, what are things that are appropriate to register for? Also, how would I let people know where we registered?

 

Sorry for so many questions, I'm kinda stumped on this one! :)

I would definitely register as people like to buy you things off your registry..register for that china you want and anything else you need. Only tell people where you are registered if they ask...just let your mom and bridesmaids (if you have any) know and most likely people will ask them as well.

I agree with Jess. Just register and have people help spread the word. If you register at well-known stores, your name will come up when they do an online search.

We also have been together a while and have owned a home for several years, we registered for nicer versions of thing we already have. New towels, sheets to replace what is getting worn. Also new dishes, we have a set but they were passed down and not really our style.

 

We also put some large ticket items to encourage maybe a gift card or group gift so we don't end up with things we already have.

I think a registry is always great! it doesnt matter how long you have been together!! they are celebrating you as a couple! You can spread the word through all different types of communication. I know when you register @ the bigger stores it asks if you would like to send an e-vite email letting everyone know you have registered etc. I personally didnt do this BUT I was registered when I sent the shower invites so I was able to put the little cards in them. Have fun!

I agree with Jess, register anyway as people will buy you something anyway-- better that it is something you and FI have chosen as opposed to five toasters, three sets of frying pans... you see what I'm getting at.

 

Maybe also let your BMs and Parents know that giftcards and money would be preferred, and they can subtly mention it to those who inquire. :)

Thank you ladies for your input! We are going to register, I think as recommended I'll just tell those whose ask. I think it'll probably spread by mouth, that way I don't feel pushy about it.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
