- Wedding: May 2010
So, this should be an amazing thing, right? Who wouldn’t want to log on and see gifts being fulfilled left and right. Well… in this situation, ME!
My fiance has a pocket of his family who is very wealthy. The rest of the wedding guests are just your average middle/working class people. When they found out we registered (by word of mouth), things started flying! Although, not the expensive things…. like a BUNCH of smaller gifts. There are only 3 people who have purchased things. 1 person bought all 12 sets of our dishes and all of the serving pieces. We registered for $34.99/place setting dishes thinking that one family would purchase 1 place setting. They are all gone, from one person. Kitchenaid mixer… gone. Bedding (all pieces)… gone. Towels… gone. I am having 2 showers, none of which these people are coming to, and the invites have not even been sent out yet. I’m concerned that people will receive them, go to pick out a gift and there will only be the really expensive items left! I don’t want my guests to feel obligated to purchase expensive gifts because there is not much left.
The obvious solution would be to just register for more items, but really… I don’t want to have to return a bunch of things once the showers are over. We have been living together so we have a lot already.
Please don’t get me wrong. I am NOT complaining that all of my gifts are being purchased. We are so blessed. I just don’t want to put my other guests out… Suggestions?
