I still haven't registered and am beginning to feel behind! Anyone else not do this just yet??
@Firemansgirl: I signed up for a registry... added like 3 items... but haven't told anyone about it.
We've been living together (in apartments) for 8 years, so... we don't need anything. :/ We're going to do an FHA registry to help save for a down deposit on a home, but I'd like to set up a secondary registry with a few little things just to have variety... but it's difficult!
Well I'm getting married in June and haven't done this yet! I've thought about it, but I don't see why this isn't something that can't wait until closer to our date. We've lived together about 6 yrs. now and really don't need a whole lot, so whatever we do put on there will probably be just to replace our old stuff now! lol But I'm not too worried about, it's actually the least of my worries right now! I wouldn't stress over it too much, just do it when ever you have available time! I would like to know when the proper time is to do it, if there is one? I think your fine, good luck!!!
We did between Xmas and New Years, but it's only for replacement stuff. We've been living together for a while in a shoebox-size condo, so we're just putting the info on our website.
Its a lot of fun to go and do! Your FI's will LOVE it!!! Just let them use the gun and you will have a great day together! When we signed up the woman explained to us "this is the one time in your life to make an ultimate wish list so why not?" And she was completely right. We also have lived together for almost 5 yrs BUT still were able to come up with a bunch of great gift ideas.
I'm getting married at the end of July and we probably wont register for another month. I think your on track. Just make sure you are registered before your bridal invites go out that way ppl can buy you cool new things! :)
Ha, I registered a while ago. It's fun.
I am working on mine but I won't make it public for at least a few more months. I wouldn't stress about it
Nope we haven't and I am not too worried about it I figure as long as we register a month or so before the bridal shower we should be ok...
I have registered and only added a few things, we've also been living together for a few years so we're pretty set up.
Ours is mostly set up, but we haven't really given out the information yet. Which is a good thing since now that we've actually got a house we've changed our minds on some stuff...
We haven't registered yet either! I believe my shower is going to be in June, so I figured we would do it in April! We have lived together for 4 years too, but most the stuff has been handed down! So, we are excited to go!
I haven't! I'm worried about doing it and then some of the stuff will get sold out or whatever. I figured I'd wait until April or May... do people really buy gifts more ahead-of-time than that? (Note, probably won't have a bridal shower or any other gift-giving occasion ahead of time also.)
I only registered just recently. I did it 100% online, because FI and I have more important things to do on days we both have off and I don't want to go by myself. It was actually very easy and I had a lot of fun doing it. Plus, you can always build it up over time.
We went to a registry event at Macy's two days ago. I say you're on track.
I haven't done it yet on purpose. I'm waiting until it gets closer
We went to Macy's to register about a month or so ago. It was good, because we actually got something from it for Christmas (although, now there is one less thing on the registry, so...), and because it took us a really long time to decide what kind of plates we wanted. It was not great because already like, 4 or so things we put on there have been discontinued... so that is a little annoying.
I think you have plenty of time, though! I'll be tweaking it until the end!
I used honey fund, its not only for a honeymoon, you can add other items to it, but i just finished ours up last night, I thought it was a super easy way to go about things and we have lived together for 7 years, what could we possibly need?
I put this on our website with the link to the honey fund:
The important thing for us Is that you share our special day Coming to our wedding Would help us on our way But you've asked us if we'd like some gifts And to be honest we've got it all The kitchen's full of useful stuff And now we're filling up the hall But what we'd really like And it would be a lot of fun Is a week or two relaxing And soaking up some sun So if you'd really like to help us Then we know a place that's cracking Just have a look at our honeymoon list And really Send Us Packing
Don't worry.. I am getting married March 30th and just did my registry last month! Our first shower isn't for another 2 weeks and the first item just got purchased last week!
Well, I'm from Sweden and we don't do registries at all - so obviously I don't feel stressed about not having one! However, my FI thinks we need to create one, so I guess we need to come up with one at some point. Since we've lived together for the last 4 years, we're not really in need of anything - so we've decided to create a wish list for our honeymoon. Like, champagne in Paris, airfare from Paris to Zurich etc. Feels like we'll get something we both will enjoy while still giving people a little more option than just plain cash.
So, to sum it up - don’t stress about this, it’s really not necessary to have one until you’ve sent out the invites.
We're pretty much setting up a registry page on our wedding website so we don't get stuff we don't need. FI was against it until I shared some horror stories. We're combining two houses, so have kitchen paraphenalia a-plenty.
If we do one, it may be Sears as we both have a lot of tools and little organization around them. We did suggest gift certificates to a local business to put towards a Green Egg grill.
I'm debating putting something on the page regarding our honeymoon. We just decided the specifics of it earlier this week, and it's going to be a day-long ordeal of airplane travel. I'd love a pass to the business-class lounge during our loooong layover, movie player rental certificates, anything to make the airport stays better.
@Firemansgirl: Same here and my wedding is in May. My friends threw a surprise shower for me and I got gift cards. I really need to work on that but I have no clue.
@Brooklyn55: You just made me feel a lot better.
You've got plenty of time. Honestly, I'd wait until you get closer to your shower. We registered in August since my FI wouldn't be around any other time to do it, and I've already had to go back twice to edit for discontinued items- and I've still got a month to go before my shower. I'm really hoping I don't have to do it again.
@lovelove1028: I'm in the same boat as you. We are thinking of doing a registry for our honeymoon maybe? Just because we don't need anything else. However, I know we will need to be registered for some stuff for the bridal shower.
Still haven't registered either. I was thinking of doing this sometime in February or March. I'm not sending my Save the Dates out until late March/early April so as long as I register before then I'll feel comfortable.
@Firemansgirl: We have three registries and items on only one of them. We're planning to get to the other two stores on Saturday. I'm second guessing some of the items we have at one of the stores. I felt forced to choose things from that store but I don't think I like the items (comforters and bedding patterns and colors).
Don't feel alone. We still haven't sent out our invitations and we're in the process of building the website. Here's hoping we have it done by the time we drop the invitations in the mail.
We decided on a honeymoon registry. All we want is our hawaiian cruise lol
We haven't registered yet! For some reason, this task seems overwhelming and I have been putting it off. I feel like I need to pick just the right items or something...I am not really sure why it is stressing me out!
