yes you are not alone. i edit constantly to make sure we will use any items people may choose to buy. trying to remind myself although i wouldnt necessarily treat myself at this time, that the items will be used in our lives. and that there is a variety for people to choose.

I am guilty for having a registry, but it’s worse to run out of stuff on it and then get weird crap for wedding presents. This is his first wedding, right? Don’t delete stuff you two put on there together.

I am in the same boat you are. I started a registry at JCPenney for my family since they live by one, and we’re going to start a Wal-mart registry for his family, who only have access to a Wal-mart because of their location. I started the JCP registry, and found that I was adding everything!!! This is because we live together, but with my mom for the time being, and we are looking to move out by September, meaning that we really are going to need EVERYTHING! I do feel guilty, because I feel like we’re being needy, but we really do need a lot of things because when we move out to our own place we aren’t going to have anything. So really, what do we do? lol

So I guess I’ll have to just suck it up and register all of the things that we need. Another hard part about it is, that we have to decide what we are going to register for each place, and what things are going to be where, if that makes sense. I don’t want to register for a coffee pot at both places ya know? ugh, it’s very frustrating, ALL wedding planning is. haha

I felt super guilty about our registry even though I don’t even have a whole lot of stuff. But my Fiance and I have basically nothing to start out with. Then I felt a whole lot better when my Fiance looked over it and approved because he is very sensible about what we need and what we don’t, he would have said something if it seemed like we were asking for too much.

@thewheelsonthebus: I am right there with you! I’m in my 30s and Fiance is 41. We registered and I have decided against feeling bad about it. People are going to get us gifts, and I’d rather have them get us something we’d like to have than pick up whatever they want. It’s a wishlist, and we were practical, ie. we didn’t ask for 12 of everything or follow the registry guide recommendations. The consultant at Macy’s was perplexed! I constantly edit because we secretly would prefer to receive money…

As a joke [and I hope to make you all laugh here] this is an actual item on our list – it’s 3 feet long and costs $2,000! It’s the most expensive thing on there by $1,900. Ha ha ๐Ÿ™‚
