    I did a small registry at a nicer place macys and then a small one at target because when i hadn't done I kept getting the same "where are you registered??" so i thought Ill give them an option but wont post it on anything. I don't think it's rude to have a registry and specially if you are having an AHR :)

      What I did was use http://www.myregistry.com/ and added a few items that I wouldn't mind getting but you can open a "Gift Registry" as well as be able to choose items from the internet rather than from a single store.

      Here is mine if you want to see what I mean, http://www.myregistr...80-364B63DBCF9B

      I also only put the registry on my website so if they ask, I tell them to go there and they will see that they have an option.

      Hope this helps!

        Sorry I meant to say you can open a "Give a Cash Gift" (which uses Paypal so you know the money is secure)

          We're having a formal DW in Las Vegas. I don't wan't to get any physical gifts either. I did register and quite a few places for our wedding shower my MOH and BM are throwing will be throwing us. That is the only reason I made a registry, and although I have been asked many times by potential guests, I will not be putting any registry info in our invitation suite. If they tell me they can't make it and ask me then I'll tell them where I'm registered.

            We put together a small registry because we had a few people ask, and I figured better to get a few things we actually want. I did put a link on our website, but just working on getting the right wording so people know we do not expect anything.

                I think we will do a small registry for those who want to give gifts. It will be listed on our website with a disclaimer, but will not be printed on invites.

                    Ironically, I was contacted by one of my guests, and she requested that we create a registry!! She agreed that it shouldn't be printed on the invitations, so as to give the impression that gifts are expected.


                    Another thing to consider is using something like simple registry which is a cash registry, but allows you to put items on it, then people give you cash for the specific item that suits them most. And for big ticket items you can break them down into several units (e.g., a $500 item can be broken down into 5 $100 units). 


                    Cash registries are probably most ideal because you dont want people lugging a gift on an airplane that you have to lug back home.

                      I didn't know these cash registires existed.  Pretty cool, is there a website or something to start one?
