You could register for le crueset kitchen ware- it’s wonderful quality and a “life time” present. Also consider silver ware, crystal vases, crystal fruit bowl, silver picture frames, silver chargers (although the solid silver are about 3000 euro a piece, the silver plated are about 500 euros), silver coasters, silver or crystal ice bucket, crystal glasses (not just for the table… bar ware also)

I’ve always been in the opinion that wedding gifts should be incredibly high quality items that one should use for life and pass on through the generations- I can buy my own vaccuum. So to me having the gifts be in storage for a few years would be fine.

I’m Canadian, Fiance is British and we’re getting married in Canada. We live in England.

We think what we’re going to do is register for gifts in the UK, and offer an option of a honeymoon fund so that people don’t have to change CAN dollars into pounds since it’s a massive loss.

I’m from the Caribbean, Fiance is from France and we’re getting married here in France. My family is coming from the US and Caribbean but we’re not doing any registries, I had never heard about it until coming on this site.
