I assume I am supposed to register for this right?
Its going to be family and friends. Small about 15-20 people. Since family is included I’m not looking for inimate stuff.
Not sure where or what to register for. My Fiance and I have been living together for almost 4 years. Add in the fact that I moved out of my mother’s place at 19, that means I’ve had 10 years to collect house stuff and 4 years to collect house stuff with him. And we hope to move shortly after the wedding so anything we get we have to move.
I thought of a few things at bed, bath, and beyond, but that looks like the just do wedding registry, not specific to bridal shower. Or do people just pick off the wedding registry? I really have no idea how this is suppose to work or even what to register for…

People just pick off the wedding registry, you don’t need a separate shower registry.
Originally we thought it might be difficult to find things to register for too because we’ve both lived on our own for 10+ years, but we registered for stuff that we could update from what we already have and things that we could use in a new house- like sheets for a guest room bed, some outdoor stuff for when we have a year, etc. So, in the meantime, we put a lot of what we got into storage unfortunately, but it will save us from having to buy a bunch of new things when we move!

Yup, a wedding registry is what they buy off of for the shower too. We registered for upgrades on all the hand-me-down stuff we had been using since college. It was really overwhelming at Bed, Bath, & Beyond so we went home and finished rounding it out after we got a general idea of things we needed and could register for. I had my shower this weekend and got a few duplicates/things not on the registry and BB&B took it right back, no receipts needed and gave me store credit! Good luck and have fun!

@JaneDomani: You don’t create a separate registry for the shower. People will go to your wedding registry.

Thanks for the replys. We went and registered last weekend! It was the most fun I’ve had wedding planning 😀
