So I’m debating if I should do a registry or not. My friends are telling me that i should give my guests an option but im kind of lazy with it and rather receive cash. Both sides of our family arent so wealthy and with the money that I get from the wedding i want to give it back to both sides for helping us pay for our wedding. what do you think? Were you registered?

some people will probably want to give you gifts instead of cash, so you might want to give them ideas of what you want, otherwise you’re going to get doubles of things or crap that you don’t want. even if it’s a small registry, it’s better then nothing.

I agree with artbee. There are plenty of threads about unwanted/ bizarre wedding gifts. You might get a lot of them if you don’t guide them in some way. There will always be those people that want to give you a tangible gift instead of cash.

I didn’t register. There were a few people that complained (not to me though!). But as many people as my mom told me complained about it also complimented the decision to either me or her (she was surprised about that since she was very pro-registry). We did get mostly cash for our wedding but gifts for the bridal shower and some people had some really creative gifts. There were I think only two things we took back from the wedding and bridal shower. I really just couldn’t handle the idea of registering, while I like it when people do it and I see how it’s useful, it really just wasn’t for us and I don’t regret our decision not to register at all.
