This is a pretty controversial topic in the hive! What we did (because we are in your shoes) is have a very small physical registry – we did amazon.com. We also had a honeymoon registry and let people know that was our preferred registry. So, only the traditionalists bought off the amazon registry (it was some travel gear, plates, and a couple kitchen appliances). Everyone else did the honeymoon registry. Worked really well!

I throw in my 2 cents – like my mom told me, some people just want to buy you certain things.  You can either pick out those things and at least get the color/size/etc you want or not and they will probably go ahead and buy it for you whether or not you actually register for it.  So, you might as well do a small one of ‘household items etc’ so you at least get what you like.

Also, advice from my sister-in-law who only did a honeymoon registry (also had everything they needed housewise).  A few years later  and she regrets that a bit.  She wishes they had done more of a 50/50 honeymoon to household items.

That all being said, it is your registry so do with it as you will! 🙂

Find a registry with a really flexible return policy and who has items you actually need or would otherwise purchase.

Also, be careful with which honeymoon registry you select. Many up them charge 8-15%!!
