At the urging of FMIL, my FI and I got off our butts and started our registry. We registered with a Canadian company so I’m won’t go into great detail of how we felt about the company because it won’t be much help to the majority of bees here.
I wanted to ask if anyone else felt stressed starting their registry? It probably didn’t help that the store was approx 1 million sq feet (or so the consultant told us) but we felt so overwhelmed with the experience. In an attempt to save money, FI and I both moved back home after school so we literally will be starting from scratch. Walking around the store made me realize how many things we needed to start our home. Thinking that way probably contributed to the stress of registering. Thank goodness the registry office spoiled us with champagne and strawberries-believe me, it did wonders to lower the stress level.
On a bit of a side note: for the Canadians on WB, I would advice starting a registry before Christmas or more importantly, Boxing Day. I never thought about it, but you’ll do your guests a favour as some of the items may go on sale for Boxing Day. Be nice and pass the savings onto your loved ones.
Please share your experiences when you started your registry? Were you stressed like us or did you get all trigger happy?
