I am in the minority with you.  It has been a constant struggle.  We have been called rude for not registering.  Finally this weekend my Darling Husband forced me to go and spend 4hrs of my precious time registering for stuff I dont need at all.  I honestly feel that them joining us to celebrate is gift enough.  My Darling Husband broke when people threatened to give us cash!  More than gifts I would hate to get cash.  Anyways there I was weeks before registering.  I hope you can stay firm, things were fine until 6 weeks before.

I have not registered and I just explain to people who ask that we dont know where we will be settling and I cant lug around stuff I probably wont even use. Its your wedding, do what suits you best

If you have a Macy’s card, register there. When you return items, you can have the money credited to your Macy’s account. (Ask for a manager if the associate can’t do it.) If you’re planning to move to the UK, you can then call Macy’s and ask them to send you a check.

You could also register for a honeymoon through honeyfund.com. People WANT to get you gifts for a wedding. Do them a favor and give them a few options. 🙂

Why don’t you just register for a donation online or something. If people are really that stuck in their ways to look at your registry and buy you gifts… register somewhere where you can designate a donation, and have them do that. It gives them something semi-tangible so they can say, “I gave the couple a gift” or “I gave the couple what they wanted” while it leaves y’all with no things to carry around or stow away. Just a suggestion.
