I dont know what the deal is….we’re just a busy couple. Every weekend we’re off somewhere–in some other state–I just haven’t had the time!
I have a “registry” page on our website with a logo of Amazon.com and JCPenney but underneath it I put “Registry – Coming soon!”
🙁 you think guests are starting to notice? Do I have a due date to get the registry done? I’m not having a shower (well, at least one that I know about).

I would get the registry done ASAP. You could do it online or in store. My Hubby and I had so much fun doing the registry. It was like shopping without spending our own money. lol

Do it online girl! I’ve done almost all of our registry work on the web. You can add a couple of things at a time when you get a spare moment.

Do it online, I did mine in no time, you can always wait to make it public til you are ready but at least start online.

I agree with others – just do it online!
Fiance and I went to the store to ‘browse’ then came home and did the entire thing online. Whenever I have free time at work, I browse and see if there is anything else I need to add.

I’m surprised nobody has gotten on me about it yet. Grandma hasnt complained, Mom hasn’t mentioned it, nobody has asked about the registry so I just haven’t done it! LOL
Maybe thats a good sign, everyone just plans to give us cash? 😉

so I went to JCP.com and started browsing….everything I want to register for is kinda $$…..kitchen aid….those leaning-ladder style bookcase shelf things….a nice big wall clock…..
how many items over $99 are ok without making it look like you’re greedy? what shoudl the price to gift ratio be?

it really is so much easier if you go into the store to browse first. I kicked off my registry this way, and it ended up being so much fun! my Fiance enjoyed it too, as he is the cook in this relationship.
then later, I felt free to add things here and there as I liked.
we went to crate and barrel for this, btw. I highly recommend it. they gave us a free gift!

price-to-gift ratio? dunno. it depends on how much you think your friends and family are willing to spend.
my registry had a selection of high price items, and lots of lower things too, like in the $20-$30 price range. for people who can’t afford much, they can always get you a gift card. maybe you can put a note about that on your registry page?
don’t sweat it too much.

You can have high priced items and lower priced items. We had things like serving spoons, mixing bowls, pot holders, small kitchen gadgets. We also had things like the kitchen aid mixer, comforter set, etc. We registered for twice as many gifts as guests. Remember, you can always go buy the gifts you didn’t get after the wedding with the completion discounts.
