- Wedding: May 2011
Ok so everyone told me how much fun registering was going to be. I hated it!! He wanted to veto ALMOST EVERYTHING. He does a lot of cooking so I thought he would enjoy picking out stuff for the kitchen and he did….sort of.
A little additional info that HE THINKS makes him the rational one in this. We dont have a lot of space. We do live together, so we have most of everything.
He did not want to register for new dining set, glassware, and just in general all those little kitchen gadgets.
All our glass ware and dishes are mismatched and most of our stuff is very old or hand me down.
He actually told me no, that we had planty of that stuff.
I would love it that if people choose to bring us gifts and they choose to do it off our registry it would be nice to make it an opportunily to make our home NICE! Why not replace old hand me downs with nicer newer things?
I didnt even get to scan bedsheets, duvet or comforters and the sort because he wants to keep the bedroom extremely geometric and masculine. I pointed out very nice things that were pretty but not too too feminine, in colors like blue and gray and very contemporary with just a touch of a romantic feel to make it nice and inviting. NOPE.
I moved in with him so I got rid of all my stuff when i came in. I have lived with all of his old(hand me down stuff from his grandparents), dark, manly stuff for so long and accepted it because i moved into HIS house. But now that we are getting married I feel it’s time to allow some of me into our life and style. Looks like Im wrong and more wrong.
He even feels like I still have too much stuff…. even through none of the furniture or anything that has to do with the stylng of the home was mine. When he says I have too much “stuff” e is talking about clothes, shoes, purses. I do have a scrapbooking corner in the house too.
We have been together for 7 years and i did not see this coming
