Haha. Currently, FI and I were planning to purchase a puppy this summer, but now that we are saving for the wedding and honeymoon, we are putting off buying our puppy until after the wedding. So we always joke about setting up a “puppy fund”. Unfortunately, this would be super odd and wouldn’t work for us, so it stays a fun little joke.
So bees, is there something out there that you and/or your FI joke about wanting to register for? Or is there something you wish you could register for but know it is “off limits” whether it is odd or due to your culture?
Also, this is meant to be a fun post, don’t take it too seriously. No need to say “Well you can register for whatever you want”. or give advice like “You can get a puppy now if you do X,Y, or Z” etc. etc. (We’ve done our research and already have a breed and name picked out – so adopting a pup for free isn’t an option).

a new kitchen… or bathroom… lol! ( or both)
We have plans to redo both on the house we bought last summer, but have to wait because all the money is going towards wedding!

Furniture like a couch or a TV. We need to furnish some rooms in our house still. To be really selfish, a playstation 3 would be nice.

Louboutins or a Chanel bag! Hahaha. Totally selfish of me, I know, but hey….

A honeymoon – oh wait, we are!
How about a lifetime supply of Indian food from our favorite restaurant?

My FI wants to register for some disc wheels for his triathlon bike. Since we’re using Amazon I’m always tempted to let him. People will get a good laugh out of it (they’re crazy expensive!)

@pinksprinkles: We’re only registering for the shower as the wedding is cash gifts here, but I keep saying we should register for things we really want like game systems for instance, over things we don’t need or have use for. We have all the household appliances and cookware we could possibly need since I’m an avid cook and baker, and we don’t have unlimited storage space.

I wish I could have registered for a contractor! Our house needs a lot of work. 🙁

A wet room! We are going ask for money anyway. I know it goes against rules of traditional wedding gifts, but in my FI’s family it’s their tradition to give money envelopes. So we might get our home improvements after all.

my FI wants to get a tattoo after the wedding. he wants something big, too. so he joked “can i put a tattoo fund on the registry?” i also want to get another tattoo, so it would be fun to have that on the registry. but even if it was possible, i can see a lot of family members being offended by it. his parents hate tattoos on anyone. i have two small ones, and they really aren’t visible. i know his mother was turned off when she found out i had them, so i can only imagine how they’ll react when he gets one. especially a big one.
i think registering for a house would be nice. like, an actual house. have everyone put money into the down payment.
