- Wedding: October 2012
So my mother and FMIL have been bugging us to make a regisrty. It wasn’t my first priority as I just don’t have time to go store to store to long for things I can’t afford and I also wanted to include the honeymoon (which is now a gift from my FBIL to Iceland). FI is also pretty against the registry due to the fact he feels like hes asking for handouts. But I finally asked a fellow bride friend what she used and she told me about registry.com. Simple and easy. But my concern now is price of things. I did put a wide range of things on there. Prices on there range from $7 – $400. Today at work I overheard some coworkers talking about someone’s registry (not mine. Mine is not avaiable to anyone yet but us and our moms). They were complaing about the prices and that a kitchen aide mixer was on it (on mine as well). They kind of shut up when came into eye view which Id rather get their opinion then guessing at this.
I don’t expect to get everything on our list and its hard to pick something we need when in actuality we have everything. Im putting a lot of essentials on there, sheets, new comforter, knives. But what else do I put on there so people don’t get offended? What did you girls put on there? You get the gifts at the bridal shower right? Not at the wedding? And are “honeymoon jars” at the bridal shower in poor taste?
