@Mrsgurzakovic:  I think that you can still have a registry. It’s still up to the guest whether or not they use your registry.

We had a registry for some things with our small wedding.  We didn’t register for a ton of things though.

I don’t see why you can’t have a registry.

My friends hosted a small bbq wedding in a lodge where we worked and I was so mad she didnt have a registry. Some people will still want to get you a useful gift and if there is no registry that can be very hard to figure out. I would have somethign small and conservative and if you see people are using it then add on some more items.

We’re having a relatively small wedding, arund 50 people in total, and we’ve registered for a handful of items. We’re frankly not expecting gifts because basically everyone is travelling to our wedding, but we opted to register for a small number of items just in case.

I just wouldn’t expect to get a ton of presents, if there’s not a ton of guests!

We also having a running registry for all year round gifts (xmas and birthdays etc) at an outdoor shop. Its not typical but it makes life easier for people.

You can still have a registry. I’d just suggest being realistic in terms of expectations, keeping in mind your guest list.

I’m not even having a shower but I still have a registry. Most stores have a policy that whatever someone doesn’t buy you, you can buy yourself at a discount 😉

Some stores also give you discounts on ANYTHING in the store for a couple months after, so it’s definitely worth doing. Plus, you might get freebies if you go to special registry events- I got a small, pretty vase from crate & barrel.
