we’re NOT! We’ve been living together in for 2 years now, first in the US and now abroad and have more than enought household stuff. Plus, it would be too hard to bring stuff back overseas anyway, so we set up a honeyfund where people can make donations toward our honeymoon directly online, and if they are not comfortable with that, hopefully they will get the hint to just give us a check at the wedding instead of guessing what china/bedding we may want to lug on a plane back home haha.

I moved to the US from Canada shortly before the wedding and we just opted not to have a registry. It made everyone’s lives easier.

I’m another who opted not to have one.  I don’t want to try to make my guests figure out how to get things to the Middle East and I don’t want the responsibility of bringing it back.

I think we’re not going to have one. We’ll put the word out to friends and family that we’re hoping for checks instead. Hopefully everyone will get the hint.

We just moved back from overseas and will likely go again in a bit so we don’t want alot of stuff. We did a super small registry (even has a travel adapter/luggage on there) and then the rest can give a card/cash. 

Friends of ours did the same thing, but had it shipped to their parents. A few retailers let you do it all online either way.

I would just go with what you want and carry:)

Although we’re not there yet, we will be in the same boat (except we’re from the UK not the US).  As much as I’d love to register for thinks we’d need/want in the longer term future (since we plan to move back to the UK eventually). The cost of shipping is just impratical.  Not to mention our condo is very very small. I think we will prefer cheques/cash, which is kind of sad because I’d much prefer tangable items, I’m rubbish at buying things for myself (ourselves) since I’m quite frugal.
