I am having the same dilemma. My mother & BM's insist I need a shower and have to register- but I am living with my FI for 2 years now.

I've asked my friends & parents for advice, and they suggested putting just some around the house "updates" we could use. So things like a comforter [we still have a full for our new king bed], maybe some new pots & pans, or some kitchen gadgets/utensils. Other than that, some smaller options could be: cleaning supplies, mops/brooms, decorative frames [perhaps some wedding inspired ones for the big day!]. I was also thinking of maybe asking for fun stuff like gluten-free cookbooks [i've been diagnosed with Celiac for almost 2 yrs] and even some gluten-free goodie bags [cake mixes, baking products, etec]. I'm just trying to think of anything we could really use and not have our friends & family buying us things we'll never need.

I would say Bed, Bath, & Beyond and maybe Macy's, and maybe even put Home Depot gift cards down if you have any "fixer-uppers"

 

One really cool site I heard about was My Registry- Where you can add anything from any store onto one main registry, online! So guests can shop online and go to any site to purchase what you need. I like this idea, b/c I personally LOVE Ikea and since they don't offer a registry, this is a great way to put lots of little things on the list I wouldn't be able to otherwise =)

Hope this helps

 Great minds, think alike. :o)    Sounds like some great and useful items to put on your registry!..  Cookbooks are def a useful item and great for you having to eat gluten-free.

 

BBB is def a great place for many many items.  :o

 

Oh... I have to share.. Anyone wanted to do a not so traditional shower.. It's called a recipe shower or party or whatever you would like to call it.   Guest bring you a recipe on index cards. You can premake cute ones to have the host include in the invites. They will write down their receipe and then as the gift they can bring you all of the ingredients you will need to make that meal. Great for those of you whom live with your fiances already and for the ones who don't.   Trust me, you'll end up with plenty of meals for a couple of weeks and wont have to worry with grocery shopping. I love to cook, so thought this would be a great way to try new things.

Thanks for sharing this!.. I will highly recommend registering for extra towels and bath room essentials if you plan to move from a small house to larger one or apt to a house. You don't realize how much this stuff adds up until you have to complete a bathroom or two.

 

Also, I agree with not shying away from the high-ticket gifts.  Many brothers/sisters and cousins will probably want to go in on a bigger gift that they know you will enjoy and probably be a gift that you wont just go out and buy for yourself.

Bubbles- This is a GREAT idea!! If I had the pantry space, I'd totally do it LOL

I've also done something like this in the past for my cousin's shower- but minus the ingredients. It was a traditional shower, but in the invites we asked guests to bring their favorite recipe. We provided the recipe cards, and had a cute little recipe box for guests to put them in!

His family insisted that we register for small things for the guests that want to buy us gifts. But I will def check it out. Thanks!   What type of items did yall do?

New bedroom set and stainless steel grill (we'll need/want both by next year) and a green house since we're really into growing our own veggies/fruits/stater plants for our yard and garden. We considered listing one of our home remodling projects, we thought it was nice to list a few larger ticket items instead of one huge item.

 hehe.. I understand.. I live alone and fill my pantry.. I've told Alex I need a BIG pantry bc I tend to overbuy at the grocery store.. Maybe I need a smaller one so I will only buy what is needed.Seems like a smarter plan there. :-/   

 

Ahh sooo cute!!... You think I could just have everyone send me recipes?.. I love trying new things. And if it's someone else's favorite you know its got to be good. :o)    I see a new forum in my future. :o) Recipe Share.

YES! You can absolutely do this!! That's actually a GREAT idea for a new forum post- it can be a "pot luck" forum haha!

 

And if you want this idea for your shower, there are cute ways to include the recipe card gift in the invitation.

 

"A dash of wishes, a sprinkle of joy, and a whole lot of love"

Please share your favorite recipe with the bride to be!

Be sure to bring it with you to include in [name] recipe box!

 

There are even really cute personalized recipe boxes that are specifically for the soon-to-be Mr & Mrs! Take a peek =)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
