No registry for us. If I do get a request to host a shower on my behalf I will request that it's a get together with no gifts. Those who insist on still giving a gift will likely give cash (that's how FI's family is), but if we get physical gifts we will accept them graciously but need nothing. It's why I'm hoping no one offers to host a shower! As for the bachelorette, we plan on having a couple (one at home, one in Vegas)... And of course no worries about gifts then!

We're in the process of registering as we've had a few people say they won't be able to make the wedding but want to send a gift. I'm not having a shower though (my own choice) but my MOH/sister is planning a bachelorette party!

I personally do not want a shower!! I was thinking about just adding a registry and a bank acc for those that want to give cash on our wedding website,

I am unsure if I will do a registry...I guess if anyone suggests it I will like if my bm hint on a shower, but even when I had my daughter I was hesitant for a registry but was talked into it by family lol. We already have a house together so the normal registry stuff we already have

We weren't going to do a registry, but we had quite a few people bugging us to register somewhere.  So we are registered at two places.  A few of our friends/bridesmaids are hosting a coed "Stock the Bar" shower for us where we live now.  My mom and the other bridesmaids are hosting a bridal shower for me in my hometown.  They also want to host a bachelorette party for me, but I might not have one.  It is very overwhelming trying to save enough money for a destination wedding let alone spend a bunch on a bachelorette weekend.

We originally had a honeymoon fund registry until our parents told us it was tacky. I don't believe that it is but since we are doing a destination wedding everyone ASSUMED we were staying there for our honeymoon....but we aren't. But anyways I got frustrated and created a registry for Macys and Kohls for more crap that we don't need. Everyone's presence Is our present! We are asking our friends and family to shell out cash to share our big day....we don't need any gifts. My shower is going to be a boudoir shower so those registries wont help there either. LOL!

My FI and I live together and have way too many things. So we were talking about doing a registry type thing for an anniversary vacation/honeymoon. We have 4 kids between the 2 of us (from 20yrs right down to our 1yr old) so we need vacation time.

    • 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?
