    I would think that people will still want to give you gifts, especially if they can't make it, or if you have a shower. I would register at one place for stuff that you want, like new bedding or candles, decorations. I have heard a lot of people doing that. Also you could do something different and do the honeymoon registry, a pampered chef registry, registry through your photog. for gift certificates (my cousin did this and it worked great), I have also heard of people doing a registry for non-profit organizations.

    I know I would want to get you something to celebrate your marriage! And you don't want it to be something you don't want/need.

    Good Luck!

      Thnks Annette,
      Thats a good idea. I think from what everyone else has said, if someone is wanting to get us something, they will regardless of what we say, so we might as well register somewhere to avoid all the awkward questions of what we want. Word of mouth that we have a registry of some kind.
      THanks for everyone's input.
      I feel better now. I didnt want to insult someone by not taking their gift, but I also didnt want to insult anyone and make them think they had to do something. When that is not our intention by any means.
