Hey guys. We have two wedding at the end of the month, both with no registries. The first couple had a house, then downsized to an apartment but have been living together for years. The second couple are both getting married for the second time and both seem to have all the regular “stuff”. Any ideas? We’d probably spend $100ish per couple.
Thanks in advance!

What about a really nice bottle of wine or champagne to open on a special anniversary?

We didn’t register because we had an out of state wedding. I know it’s “tacky” to some, but we were just hoping for gift cards and checks. It kinda backfired though, we only ended up with 17 gifts out of 75 people.
Maybe that’s what they want?

As a wedding gift or shower gift? If wedding gift, I would just give them cash.

i put together a little gift basket for my FSIL. she loves to cook
i bought 2 aprons, one white and one navy and wrote Mrs. Last Name & Mr. Last name
then i bought them “the newleywed cookbook” and these really cute heart measuring spoons from michaels.

I was also thinking of a crystal bowl from Tiffany’s? The Georgetown and the Harmony bowls are both pretty classic enough for everyone to like. I have a feeling they’re going to end up with cash or a gift certificate. 🙂

I am kinda one of those brides, we are military so we move often and aren’t quiet in our permanent home! I have a registry though, but I didn’t put alot of particulars on there, mostly LINENS! I am asking for gift cards to Crate and Barrel! I know it kinda seems impersonal, what are the couples personalities? We host alot of get togethers so I love party ware! Or if they are an outdoor couple what about getting them an awesome tent to take on their next camping trip. If they don’t need anything, how about donating to a Charity in their name? Hope these ideas help!

Cash would likely be your best bet.

I’d write them a check. I bet it’s what most people would prefer anyway if it weren’t considered so tacky to ask for. 😉 I’d also bet that’s what they’re hoping for if they didn’t register anywhere.

Thanks ladies. I have a feeling we’ll just write checks out. We’re Italian so it’s not so uncomfortable for us to give money. Haha. I have to tell myself if they wanted tangible stuff, they would have registered. 🙂

I definitely say cash, I think its really what most people want over gifts anyways just no one wants to say it.

I wouldn’t worry too much – perhaps cash or you could call a bridesmaid and ask for ideas?
