I am totally here just to tell someone who cares lol!!! I know no one else in the world cares, but we barely registered for anything :(. We have about 8-10 pieces at 3 different stores… and we’re inviting 150 or so guests (not expecting them all to come but err that’s not enough gifts lol)… so I guess that’s something we’ll work on…

What stores did you go with?

Registering was one of the hardest things we’ve done so far. And we definitely need to add more options to our registry, too. We’ve started one at Macy’s and Amazon so far, and I’ll probably add another at either Crate & Barrel or Pottery Barn. Which stores did you go with?

Yaay! Personally, I think it’s the most fun part of wedding planning. It’s probably also the most practical other than the license. We started a tiny one at Pottery Barn too once we were engaged so friends of the fam could buy congrats presents (we did not have an e-party). Where did you start out?

I didn’t know Amazon had a registry. Hmmm. I might have to check that out.

We love our amazon.com registry. Definitely wish we would have registered at crate and barrel rather than target…ick target has not been easy to deal with.

We registered for a lot of non-china and typical things too, you can always expand that way! We’ve got everything from lawn chairs to tool kits to stand mixers to GPS systems.

You work fast! You are my wedding planning inspiration. I’ve done wedding planning and designing for years, but since starting law school in 2007, I have not had time to focus on my small little business. LOL!!! You are inspiring me to great levels my friend.

i registered at dillards, target, and wal-mart. and theirs a total of umm about 6-10 things on them all!! i don’t expect any gifts if at all, but i also don’t want a houseful of the wrong things. i put a thank you letter at the top for the special notes saying how much we appreciate them taking time out of their day to purchase something for us. and that we have a traditional yet modern style, clean lines etc.
@snugs: i guess i have had a lot of time and botched engagements to do it lol i have been obsessed with weddings since 1994 when my mom was engaged and i knew exactly how i wanted to structure things, but i knew the reg was important because i worked in dillards china dept for about a year or so. i didn’t realize i should be registering so soon but i am working on the std and wanted to get it out to the folks before it’s too late in the year and i am busy with the heavy season with my business.

I… have not even thought about registries yet, because it stresses me out!

@km: i seriously have like 30 things total on the registry i couldn’t find anything that I wanted and I know M would have a heart attack if I registered for things that are too expensive, however target has my place settings that i already have…

The Knot has this Registry Checklist that you can print off and customize to your needs. I have a strategy…lol, well kinda but we bought our home 2 years ago so technically we have everything we need, we’re registering for nicer things to replace our older things or the cooler things. I am inviting 250 total so I’m going to have to replace everything lol.

@crebre: LOL man it’s tough keeping up with your crazy fast wedding planning. I like how you work, girl! Sounds like M is a lot like my FI and I; Hate adding things to the registry that is a bit too expensive.

ugh. i hate the thought of registering! i’ve only registered for 2 things so far because i have no idea what to actually register for. my fiance is no help at all. he sits on the computer at night until 4 am, you think he could help me pick some things out that he likes. maybe i just have to ask him to register for video games and computer accessories! lol!
