I would do on registry they have one for a reason.  Since you already did off registry.

I agree with the PP. Since you already did an off registry, this gift should be from the registry.

Agreed.  Extra gifts are great and some more meaningful than a hand mixer.  But the items from the registry are the things they need/want, and I’d get them something from there.

On- getting gifts off the registry can be a PITA.  I know that sounds bad, but some places have really bad return policies.

I would go with the registry just because I am SO excited for my registry gifts. I swear I’m going to squeal with the exciting ones get opened!

PPs have a point, but if you know the couple really well and think they’re the type that would enjoy a night at a hotel more than baking supplies, then I say go with your gut.  I literally added every single thing at BB&B that I liked to our registry, but I’m not totally excited about all of it, and could probably get some things for cheaper at Target.  If my best friend bought us a night at a B&B she knows we love, I would probably be more excited about that.  Just a thought.

I’d go on registry.  Those are the item that the couple needs and wants.  Honestly, I never buy off-registry gifts for weddings.  The couple creates a registry for a reason.

Normally I’d say off registry, but since you did that for the shower I don’t see why not going with the registry. Just try and get something you know they really want.
