    Thanks everyone for the input, it really helps! I think we will register and make sure to let people know to please not feel obligated to get us something especially if they are traveling to the wedding.

      We registered on Amazon. That way we only had to register in one place and we could register for anything.

        Wow great idea Malisa, I had no idea you could register on Amazon. I shop on there all the time because they have everything you could ever want.

          Yes, do register! I agree with the other girls, people who can't come want to send gifts. What I did so it wasn't pushed on anyone (as it's not proper ettiquette to announce where you've registered in your invites) I created a page on my wedding website for my registries.

          I registered at Crate and Barrel for nice home stuff and I also registered for a honeymoon registry so people can buy us activities, dinners, bottles of champange for our room etc during our wedding week. and I also registered at Marriott for our Fiji honeymoon.

          I wanted people to have options to be involved in our wedding if they can't come or just send us standard gift. If people ask me where we are registered I tell them but other than that the information is only available online if they choose to want to know on their own. I had the same question if I should register or not but I'm glad I did because a lot of people asked.

            Wow!! 5 couples booked even before invites is amazing!! And congrats on the weight loss. Fantastic!! Amazing how well we can do when we are motivated! (at least thats my problem!!) Good luck with everything!

                  Decided to do a search for this topic today. We hadn't planned on registering but questions started rolling in today so I will definitely be talking to my FI about it.

                  Thanks!

                    Fiance and I weren't going to register, but now I think we will. Like KittenHeart, we will just indicate the registries on a page of our website. This way, only those who want to gift us can and those who don't won't feel obligated.

                      We will be registering, but make sure to tell the guests that are coming to the wedding in Cuba that they do not need to get us a gift. We will be having an AHR with a sit down dinner for our extended family and they will all be bringing something. I would much rather it be stuff that we need/want rather than just them guessing!! lol.
