At $299-the Kitchen Aid mixer. And I stressed about putting something that expensive on our registry. But I’m hoping we’ll get enough cash/gift cards that I can justify getting it with the registry completion discount. Unless a team of people buy it, I don’t expect anyone to spend that much.

I loooove ZGallerie.

Pot and pan set

Stand Mixer

Lawn furniture

All about $300. MIL got us the pan set, her whole office got us the lawn furniture, and I bought myself the stand mixer with gift cards afterwards, lol. Plus if you put it on there, you can get it discounted later. We got a big range of gifts–some like $200 (cash, gc, etc) and some were $20. So a range is good. Our friends like to go in and split gifts, so I’m sure if we wanted a $500 barbeque, a handful of them would have swung it.

I’m feeling nervous about this too – we have several items around $300 (bar @C&B, food processor, standing mixer, Dyson) and a lot of things around $100.  But we figure most people will give as a couple and be somewhere around that price point (we’re in DC, where EVERYTHING is expensive, so I don’t think $100 price tag has the same shock value as it did when I lived in Miss.)  I don’t know how much is too much…

We’re also doing 3 registries: C&B, Macy’s, and a honeymoon registry…

Around $199…I believe the juicer is the most expensive.

We have “a down payment for a little yellow farmhouse that’s out there somewhere” on our wishpot registry so that’s our most expensive thing on there, but there’s not a price attached to it.  It’s just a suggestion.  Similarly we have a *choke* $450 Dyson vacuum cleaner on there.  I don’t expect anyone to buy it for us but maybe someone will say, here’s $50 – put it towards that vacuum.

It was the KA mixer and Le Creuset dutch oven for us. 🙂

I’d say it has to be the Kitchen-Aid nmixer too.

Ours is the Roomba ($300 + ). I added things to the registry I knew would not be purchased so that I can get a discount when the wedding is over. BBB does this, right?

I say put a full range of items on there. People will get what they can afford. I put an All-Clad set on mine ($600 +) and a Dyson vacuum ($400+) along with a ton of smaller less expensive items. Figured we’d put those things there just in case someone (or a group of people buying together) felt like going above and beyond for us

Our KitchenAid mixer tops the list, but our pots/pans and china are right up there!  We also registered for a really nice blender that was about $180 but goes on sale frequently.  And when I peeked at our registry today our china was gone, woohoo!

Our Calphlon Unison cookwear at 600. The starter set our of China, Mikasa was the same price, but my mom got it on a heck of a sale at Macy’s. I got my KA actulaly a professional instead of the Artisian from one my AUnts and Uncles. It’s a combined shower/wedding gift. They got a steal at Costco.

I think our most expensive items are the Calphalon Knife set ($200) and a down duvet ($200)

We won a T-Fal pot and pan set (and LOTS of other kitchen stuff) at a bridal show that I dragged FH to about a year before the wedding.  He was complaining about missing a pre-season Eagles football game (he’s a Ravens fan) the whole time at the show.  Then they called out my name and he changed his tune 🙂

all my bridesmaids got me the kitchenaid for my shower (awesome ladies!) but other than that I think our duvuet at Macy’s is $400, but is often on sale for $200!

The Kitchenaid mixer is definitely the most expensive item on our registry, but we registered for everything we wanted whatever the cost (including a $150 coffee maker and a $250 comforter–which is usually on sale for less). I hope people don’t think we are so materialistic because we registered for expensive items! We just figure people will buy whatever is in the price range they intended to spend anyway, and we can use completion discounts for the rest. We never picked something *just* because it was expensive, but because it had special features that we wanted or was high quality.
