So my wedding shower was a week ago today. I am very appriciative of everything that everyone did for me but I didnt get anything off of my registries. (Target & Bed bath & beyond) and mostly everyone just gave me about $20 in a card. Which is awesome but I reallllly need “stuff”. Well anyone who did get me a gift went to walmart and got it. I kinda felt a little shafted like people didnt really care but I thought ya know, the economy is horrible right now and no one has any extra money. So maybe Walmart is all that they can affored right now. Which is totally fine to me. But I still need “stuff”. So me and my FI decided to go ahead and do a Walmart registry too. I still have another shower coming up for me and our wedding.
Is it too pushy to register there too???? I just want people to not feel guilted into buying something they cant affored but I still really want the stuff I actually need. Tell me what you think of this girls!

That’s a fine plan – but remember you can use the money for “stuff”, too! I would actually prefer that – ten I can prioritize for myself what I want most.

Why can’t you use the money to buy the “stuff” you need?

Well we were going to use the money we got to go on a honeymoon. Well this week our band realllly messed us up and all of our bills and my FI check so happenly were all within two days of eachother and our bank put every single bill and check through before our FI check so they killed us with over draft charges. So guess where our “honeymoon” money went….. Yeah I am pretty sad about it. But truley thankful that we even had that extra money because I’m not sure what we would be doing right now without it.

For some reason it seems like your guests aren’t feeling the target and BB&B registries. Maybe those stores aren’t conveniently located for them or something, so I think adding a walmart registry is a good idea. Also, while it’s rude to put registry info on a wedding invitation, it’s perfectly acceptable to put it on a shower invitation, since that’s the whole point of the shower.

I don’t think it’s rude to have 3 registries, especially if it’s to make gift buying easier on guests.

Don’t think it’s rude, but as a side note considering talking to the bank and seeing if they can remove some of those overdraft charges. Often they will. Just let them know you’re a customer in good standing and this was an honest mistake.

You’re definitely fine, especially with the stores you picked. If you picked three all high end stores, it might be a different story.

I don’t have a good feeling about registries personally (it feels weird to pick stuff out for people to buy for me). However, I know that guests do like to be able to buy something that you would want, so I know that is appreciated.
Are you upset about the money in the cards, but you would rather want “stuff” that potentially costs more than $20?
