I got a lot of questions like "why do you care if it goes from the oven to the freezer to the dishwasher?"
We made most decisions together but there were a few items we felt strongly about. He had his heart set on a silverware set from C&B that I didn’t like so I had full control over the plate selection. How can you not love all white plates???
How did you guys split up what you registered for?

My FI pretty much gave me full control of the registries. He really only requested a certain pan so that I can make him his favorite cookies. (No, I am not Susie-homemaker… I just love to bake.) Other than that I tried to make sure that I put things on the registry for him.

We were pretty much in agreement about everything (same astological sign, we’re a lot alike ) but if I would have said I really wanted something, he would have caved. He’s like that, but he also knows I won’t take advantage.

It sounds so corny, but we definitely did it all together. It took several hours but we made it through and finished. unfortunately I am giving up my pink plates and multi colored drinking glasses for silver and black. But it makes me feel good that we are turing everything into "ours" by picking it together. (BUT we compromised and I got to pick out the pink kitchenaid mixer!)

Ours was a bit of give and take. I got my kitchen aid mixer and I let him register for a $400 knife!!! So far we’ve only gotten the mixer. Poor guy, he really wants that knife, but $400!!! Kinda ridiculous if you ask me.

Well, my FI is in the military so we were planning on doing ALL of our registry on one of the rare Saturdays he comes in town, but we got overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices at Williams-Sonoma, that we simply couldn’t do Macy’s and Lowe’s in the same day. So we did the Williams-Sonoma one together, and we decided it’d be easiest if I made our Macy’s and Lowe’s registry (based off the fact that I live in the home and know what we do and do not need) and he would edit according to what additional items we might need. For example, he suggested a pizza stone and a toaster oven. He likes my taste in dishware and glasses, anyways, and ultimately it was my decision which crockpots I wanted, etc, since I’m the cooker in the house. This was just much easier for us, and I was able to work on it when I could. I did it all online, anyways.

None of the poll options fit me. We went together and gunned everything we liked. Then I have obsessively gone back through it and changed things. My fiance joked the other day that he will be suprised at our gifts because he has no idea what is on the registry anymore! 🙂
