Hello fellow Brides!
Help! I love my fiance dearly but he is very closed minded to a traditional registry! I am 26 and he is 30. He already owns his place with a fair amount of items but getting him to cooperate with registering has been such a pain! He would love to just have cash. I’ve already compromised for him with doing a traditional registry (Bed Bath & Beyond and Macy’s) AND a honeymoon fund (Honeyfund.com)..which he prefers because it’s basically cash. We just did our first registry the other night and it was pulling teeth getting him to be open minded to anything! He wants our registry to be small but I don’t. Don’t get me wrong.. I don’t want an elaborate over the top registry but I know if we don’t put enough on our registry (and if people don’t like the idea of the honey fund..) we’ll get a bunch of random crystal potpourri vases from TJMaxx that we can’t return and are stuck with. I told him that if cash & the honey fund are that important than he needs to let his side of the family & friends know that is where they can contribute to us. (Side note … we all know that down the road when we do need a new shiny something for the kitchen after what he has now breaks… he won’t want to spend the money then.) I’m just scared this whole registry process is going to be full of a NO attitude.<br />
Has anyone else had this issue?!..and how did you deal with it?!
