- Wedding: December 2014 - Brigalia's
Did any of you register again after your shower for your wedding? We’re expecting about 170-180 people and registered for about 120 presents. We received everything on our registry at the shower. Someone mentioned that some people prefer to buy gifts for the wedding so I don’t know if I should add to my registry? In our area, the majority of people give $$ as presents, so I was planning on just letting those who want to gift pick out what they want to give us… We don’t really need anything else so I wouldn’t even know what to register for. Would you add a few things to registry?

summery08: We went in after the shower and adjusted things, yes. I put a bunch of ‘filler gifts’ on the reg for shower purposes (things I would have wanted but also could have also bought myself), but deleted after shower, as with a new house, we would honestly prefer cash. So eliminating gift options might promote that, hopefully without being too pretentious. However, there were a couple things we did hope to receive, so I added those after the fact. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that, since there are a lot of guests who did not go to shower, but I think would prefer gift giving over writing a check. Don’t worry about adding gifts

I did alter the registry after my shower, yes. I added more items since the majority were bought up at the shower and I deleted items that people bought but didn’t have taken off the registry. You don’t have to register for more items, but people who want to buy you a gift will, regardless of what is on your registry. If you don’t want to end up with personalized knick-knacks, candles and hand-crafted items, find something to register or something you can return later. If you don’t mind the aforementioned, leave it alone and get prepared to receive them.

summery08: We are kind of in the same boat. The majority of our registry items were purchased at my showers, and I’m being told I need to add more to our registries for the wedding! I really only would like to get some wine glasses, a couple more towels and some new silverware (ours are mismatched hand-me-downs) We really don’t need anything else. I am overwhelmed by the love and generosity of our friends and families. I’m not sure what elese to add to the registry!!!

I have read that you should be going into your registries every once in awhile and added if most items have been bought. However, you may feel that it isn’t necessary and people could always give cash or something else instead.
I review my registry weekly, and will be doing so up until the wedding. Some things have been bought, as I have a shower this Saturday, but know within the next month, more things will be. We have 3 stores, and plenty of things to pick from – so I know we should have plenty of items available.

summery08: no, we didn’t register. we got everything off our registry also.
people still brought gifts, things we didn’t ask for and it was a nice surprise. you might also get cash and gift cards
