I don’t really know how to find this out on my own, like on my registry. When we were at BB&B, they told us we were over 3k though…mostly because all the fine china and fancy glassware and flatware. 

We also registered at C&B and Amazon and we have some expensive stuff on them (all stuff we want and hope to do the completion deals to buy ourselves after wedding). 

Sounds like $1,300 isn’t that much…At BB&B, the person helping us said that people usually spend an average of $75-125 per gift and then you figure close relatives spend double that. It depends on your guest list, but I would add more if I were you! That or hopefully guests will give you money and not some unusual ceramic statue you don’t want…

@blushpinkbride:  that sounds like a low number to me…. We have $4000 since there are 250 guests for the wedding and 100 for the bridal shower!

@blushpinkbride:  Ya that seems reasonable! I wouldn’t delete anything though. Hopefully you get everything you want.

@blushpinkbride:  That sounds really low to me too, I know my Macy’s registry is over $5k. But a lot of that is nicer kitchen stuff and Waterford crystal, which adds up fast.

We didn’t register for alot of “stuff”, probably $700 on our actual gift registry.. which I made more for the bridal shower than anything.

We also have a honeymoon registry, total is like $4000, but we added alot of “activities” & “experiances”, we aren’t expecting to get all of them. Just needed to add things that would be appealing to differant guests.

@blushpinkbride:  $3500.  But that’s the regular cost of each item, and a good 75% of our registry seems to be continuously on sale.  The registry person said we didn’t have nearly enough but honestly, we really only need so many towels.  😉

ETA:  If it weren’t for the towels we needed to replace and the dishes we wanted to pick out together (we each have own our household stuff), then we would probably be around $1500.

I think ours was about 1500? But a LOT of it was in our $600 cookware set and the $400 roomba we registered for!

We had 42 guests. (And only 3 gave physical gifts! The rest gave gift cards or checks)

@blushpinkbride:  This is a rough estimate with a 60 guest wedding

 

$1892 Honeymoon registry – fullfilled

$2600 BB&B registry – all fulfilled except the $515 Dyson

$2000 Mackenzie-Childs- Maybe 1/3 fulfilled?

Mine is about 4100. I just added up everything. We are having over 150 people to the wedding & I’m having a bridal shower. Some of the expensive stuff we got already though for our engagement.
