I’m not very knowledgable when it comes to the etiquette of registries, so please help me out.
Mr.ND and I have 2 registries for those who prefer to shop one store or the other/different variety/etc. However, we just purchased a small summer cabin, so there will be some things we’ll need double of (bedding, bath towels, coffee makers, etc). Is it rude to have a toaster, pans, keurig on each registry?
I’d assume that guests will only buy one gift off one or the other, but is it considered rude to have duplicative items? We really do need both things, and the summer place is replacing what we would have done for a honeymoon, but I want to make sure that we’re not being impolite.

I say just have one on each registry then no one will even think twice about it 🙂

I don’t thinkthat it’s rude at all! You want what you want…I don’t see the difference between asking for two of the same thing at one store or putting one at each store, you know? If you need them, you need them! If people look at both registries though they might get confused….but honestly, I wouldn’t worry about it!

It’s not rude. Lots of people register for doubles of things. Most people have more than one bathroom so different towels and stuff make sense, plus lots of people switch their bedding seasonally. No biggie.

I don’t think it’s rude at all if you honestly need more than one of an item. It might be a little awkward if you open two toasters in a row at a bridal shower, haha. But people who know you have the cabin would understand and if it gets too uncomfortable you can always comment, “oh I’m so glad we got both, now we won’t have to shop as much to fill up our cabin!” or something.

@MsPanda: &@FutureMrsBPB: Thanks for commenting! That’s what I was thinking, putting a toaster, etc, on each store registry. That way it doesn’t show up as 2 at one place so guests/the store may think it’s error, and those guests who actually spot it on the registry at both places will just likely think we’re forgetful. 🙂 Hopefully no one spends that much time combing our registries, lol!

@mwitter80: &@galloway111: Thanks, ladies! I hadn’t even thought of the multi-room/seasonal issue in the first place. And that is a GREAT suggestion to get around that awkward giggle at repeat gifts (another one of my irrational fears of weddings, the gift opening in front of others, lol!).
I love the hive, y’all are so helpful!
