I’m excited, but he is not (AT ALL!). Is there anything I can do to make him interested and excited in registering?
Also, has anyone else been to any of these types of events? This one is being thrown by Macy’s – there will be food, music, and prizes. Do you have any suggestions?

We didn’t get to go to an event, but I’ll share anyway :). Darling Husband hates shopping. I literally had to drag him into the store to register with me. Once he was handed the scanner gun, though, it was like his world shifted. He had opinions on flatware and colors for dishes, and shower curtains. He barely cares about any of that stuff regularly, but he was all about it when we were registering! I would let him hold the scanner, and just trust that things will work out :).

Fiance had so much fun registering, and he hates shopping! He was running around getting napkins and placemats to go with our dishes and turned into a real Martha Stewart. Old Fiance came back as soon as we got home!

@jo.lee: Thanks for the advice. I will definitely give Fiance the scanner 🙂
@abbie017: Hopefully my Fiance will turn into Martha Stewart, too 🙂

I agree with all of those! Even though there will be food, I recommend eating something before going. Fiance wasn’t all that excited to register, but then when he realized that it would be stuff we would use in our new home, he perked up quickly. Have fun! Macy’s is awesome. We registered there–I love our bedding that we found and am hoping we receive it!
