Bridal Registery Do's and Don't's

Recommended Posts

Beaches had a honeymoon registry that was very easy to set up. We registered for things like a romantic dinner on the beach, wine upgrades (even though AI we l

Enjoy wines but not the "house brand" Braches uses so will buy separately off a separate menu), finishing trips....things of all price ranges.

 

In addition I think we will do one for Macy's and just do towels, beach towels, and small things like that. I'm 35 and he's 46 and we own a home with everything we need. People really want to get a gift though even if not attending which is just so amazing to us. I was married before but he was not and friends still want to give me a shower.

Wow, I must have been out of the loop I have never heard of this...this is something to look into instead of the traditional registry! Thanks for sharing :)

Make sure to register for practical items, like sheets, towels, maybe some new kitchen utensils or serve ware that you don't have! I agree with keeping the costs per item relatively low when you are having a destination wedding because they are already paying a lot in the first place!

my fiancé and I are in the same boat. we've been together for years and have everything we need.  we set up the honeymoon registry...which is actually helping to fund our wedding stay.  we are both under-employed so a wedding is a huge hardship.  I know some of the family prefer to buy gifts...however, we are very non-traditional and we are sticking to our guns.  I love the idea of the honeymoon registry.  When it comes to the shower we don't have to sit there and open a bunch of household items in front of people who are bored.  No boxed gifts will allow us more time to spend with the guests...bc lets face it...we rarely have the opportunity to get together.  plus...what we need most at this time is help with the wedding.  it is the  beginning of our married lives together. 

 

Ive developed the attitude that I don't care what the guests think about the registry.  the wedding and shower are about my fiancé and I.  therefore people should respect what we ask for and not make a big fuss over it.

I haven't decided what to do yet.... My bridesmaids are throwing me a shower so and my work girls are doing the same, I think I might just let people buy what they want and can afford......

We did a honeyfund, a honeymoon registry, and a traditional with very few things for traditionalists.

We also did not want to register but decided after talking to people that people will want to give a gift.
