@MsYankee:  We haven’t done our registry yet so that will be a treat, this is the one and only thing I haven’t had to ask my FI to do–every thing else like bridal shows and opinions for cake toppers, invitations, STD’s, outfits for STD’s, e-pics, etc., etc., LOL

Holler from Buffalo!!! Where is your venue?!

It seems to me as though your guests wont have a problem giving you gifts at all! Mine looks almost identicle to yours! The thing is, if you keep the price ranges on the lower end, people will spend what they feel like they should and if it is on the higher end, they will buy you more items. I manage/update my registry constantly because I look at what I bought and go through all the reviews and them change based on that. I find reviews to be very important because I do not want to waste the time returning items and I do not want to make anyone feel bad if they found out I returned their gift. Good luck on completing your registry!

You said that you’re having 200 guests, and will only be adding a few more items at Kohls… I’m not sure you have enough gifts on your registry for all your gifts! We found that a lot of our <$25 gifts were given at the bridal shower, and that one guest would buy multiple small items. Can you think of anything else you might need? You’d be surprised at the number of people that will give higher priced gifts. If not, just expect to either get a bunch of stuff you didn’t register for or a bunch of giftcards (neither of which are bad).

 

As for us, we left everything on our registry after the initial trip except for the bed pillows. We didn’t need $90 pillows, but sort of felt pressured into them from the BBB rep, so we took those off when we got home.

 

Have you considered doing more non-traditional registries? Like amazon, or honeyfund, etc?

It’s a good cost division, but if you’re inviting 200 guests, I think you need to add some more stuff!!

@MsYankee:  Aww it will be so beautiful! We looked at Pearl Street and had our hearts set on it but we don’t want to spend that much, we are actually just doing it at a Ellicott Creek Banquet hall (not my first choice but I could care less lol) .. My dad has been a volunteer fire figher for 35 years there. I always said I didn’t want my wedding there but I am actually really excited for it .. Fits our budget wayyyyy more lol
