@notbridey:  register for sheets and towels – you can never have too many and it’s always nice to have fresh ones. Also, how about artwork or little home decor accents?  What about new pots/pans or new flatware?  These are the things we needed to upgrade/get a lot of use out of, so it was worth it to register.  We also didn’t have a lot of serving pieces when we had company so we registered for a lot of that type of set too.

I think the $239 item is fine to put on there as long as you have a range of prices.

For your wedding registry I would definitely include the wine cabinet you want, you do not want to settle for something you kind of like. Therefore if someone buys you the gift it would be a nice treat. As the other post says its fine to to include the $239 item as long as you have a range of prices to choose from.

As the other concern you have I would include the limited stuff items you would like or can utilize like maybe a new dish set or towels, things you can always utilize. I would not go crazy with the registry if you are not stuff people, but you can have a selection of items people can choose from. If people dont see anything they would like to get you on your registry, they can simply contribute to your honey fund.

I had the same issue. We live together and have just about everything.
Since you sound like wine lovers, how about a wine carafe? We also registered for a picnic basket. Find some “just for fun” things…. things that you will use on future adventures. We also registered for Cards Against Humanity, for future dinner parties 🙂

the wine carafe is a great idea. We got a rabbit (wine opener) that we love! Also, could register for a wine aerator and maybe a mini wine cooler?

Like you, I had a lot of household stuff already.  Since we both had our own homes, then consolidated to one house.  

 

i registered for a lot of crystal serveware from Macy’s.  I’m glad I did.  Though I don’t use it too much, I know I’ll always have that stuff…and being wedding gifts they are much more special to me.

 

My only recommendation would be to not register for stuff just to pad the registry.  You’ll probably end up with a nice mix of gifts and cash.  We did.  My registry wasn’t big at all, but there were still things left on it…

@notbridey:  I have seen at some weddings where there was two registries, as long as you do not go more then that I would include both or is it only the cabinet at world market?

I included a $400 vaccuum and a $300 pots & pans set on my registry. So I think the wine cabinent is fine.
