Jeez, that’s annoying!  I guess the point is that you should just register for the things you both truly want and see what happens.  Maneuvering through a registry isn’t that difficult to me, but I’ve seen people struggle with it.  The folks that don’t want to ‘take the time’ sorting through stuff would be best off just going online and purchasing the items there.

Wow, your Future Father-In-Law is being a bit…difficult I’d say. Even though he said they don’t want to sort through to buy multiple gifts, maybe suggest they could buy a set of something? Like the place settings and the bowls.

thats really annoying. Looking at your breakdown it seems as though most guests would be able to find something in their price range, or even a few gifts if they wanted to! Wait it out, they will either figure out gifts for you, or write you a check. People just like to complain 🙁

I think you should register for some big ticket items at Crate & Barrel, and then return them for store credit. You can then save up to buy things like furniture, and you can also use the store credit at Crate & Barel outlets and really get some good deals on things you want.

Register for furniture at Crate and Barrel.  We registered for some at Pottery Barn just for kicks and because you get 10% off after your wedding on the items that are unpurchased.  

There are tons of great items on Crate and Barrel in the $300-$400 range.  Add some bookcases, some end tables, or bar furniture.  Like @echopark said, you can always return it!

My thought is that the “big shots” might not want to shop at Sears–it may seem too much like a discount store to them. Could you add to your Crate and Barrel registry? (and maybe take stuff off Sears)
