So, my fiance and I finally went and registered this weekend. What a task!!! Did any of you have a hard time finding stuff to register for? I think because we have both lived alone before getting married we feel like we already have "the basics." Someone told us to register for 2x the amount of invites sent out, which would be 320 items! We maybe got 70 and that was stretching it. Any suggestions for registry "must-haves"?

I found it painful and tiring registering...like you we have almost everything. I told a friend of mine that the bank should let you register there. ha ha ha ha ha

Thank you so much and WELCOME!! Registering was a hard task for us as well. I was recently in Crate and Barrel with my FI and there was a couple with literally a TRUCKLOAD of wedding gifts at the entrance of the store. The bride told me that she registered for a bunch of stuff that she had no intention of keeping so that she could "return it and get what she really wanted" I just stared at her with my mouth open, my FI just reached over and shut it for me..true story!

Wow...that just seems wrong - not you being shocked, but someone actually admitting they did that out loud. Boo.

SusieQ....you and me both with the weird hours...I have been online tons tonight and think I may have found one of my flower girls her present! Yippeee...one more thing to cross off "The List".

    • 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?
