    I think that you shouldn’t register at all and not have any showers.  We didn’t need a lot of things so we registered only for a few things and we got mostly money.

    It may come back to bite you in the butt if you ask for only giftcards and then don’t use them for a while because some stores will start charging fees for having the unused giftcard still out there.

    Honeymoon registries are always a good thing.  Then you can take the money you would have spent on the honeymoon and put it toward furnishing your new place.

    I think regardless of if you register or not you’ll end up with a couple random things. We have a honeymoon registry. So far we’ve had no monetary contributions but we’ve got a really nice carving set from Future Mother-In-Law (not a wedding gift apparently), a promise of wedding photos and a 6 piece dinner set and coffee set from my mom. It always happens. 

    Maybe you can ask for “money towards your money pot” and then save it for a day when you CAN buy all your cookware? But if you don’t have the space now then don’t register. It really doesn’t make sense to ask for stuff that you already acknowledge that you don’t have the space for. Unless you want to UPGRADE your stuff and are planning on getting rid of what you already have.

    Just my 2cents.

    We don’t really have room for a ton of new stuff either.  Plus, we’ve been living together for a year and a half.  So, we registered for some fun stuff and some stuff to replace our old stuff.  But, our registry isn’t that big.  That leaves room for people to give us money (we’re saving to buy a house).

    if your guests are like ours, not only will they buy you random things, but they will bother the crap out of you. we actually have a registry, but after an engagement party and shower, it’s kind of bought out. we don’t have any more room in our tiny place so we decided great, we got all the gifts we wanted (more like needed) and we’ll hope for money for the wedding. but people have been driving us nuts about registering for more stuff, and what can they get us, and all we want to do is tell them “money!” but we’re not allowed.
