At first I thought you were talking about wedding to-do lists (which I cannot live without at this point) – and I was quite confused!! 

I didn’t even read the article.  It is hard for us to step back out of our wedding planning world and realize that there are a lot of things about weddings that are weird/tacky/patriarchal/outdated/silly/materialistic – and thus weddings are very easy to attack (especially when it is a slow summer news day and they need to pull a stock general interst article).  Weddings are what they are – but we get to determine what our marriage is.  I of course think wedding registries (lists) are fine – and by looking at their popularity, most people agree.  I will continue to judge (however) people who register for gifts for their housewarming/birthday/graduation etc. – and that is probably hypocritical of me, but I’ll be out of my wedding planning haze in a few weeks and will be back to finding so many things (ribbons in butter or lemon yellow?) ridiculous!
