    im not an active practicing catholic so IDK if my opinion counts.  I was raised catholic and did the entire catholic school/mass thing and the cruifix with jesus on it freaks me out. IDK why, i hope no one is offended by it, but i don’t like my crosses with him on it.  can you get another kind?  I have one in my house that is stained glass and its just a cross, no jesus. again, im not religious really but i love it and lots of people compliment it.  

    unless, of course, this is their style, then i say go with number 2

    if not, i would do the registry and maybe a little cross, if you want to still get that for them.

    a crucifix is very personal, and depending on what type of Catholic they are, the ones you picked might not be in line with their taste.  I say get them something from the store where they are registered so at least they can return it if its not their style, instead of throwing it in a closet or to goodwill.

    Is your friend very religious? If not the crucific could rub them the wrong way. Personally, we are Catholic but I would find it an odd gift. Just buy them something nice off the registry. If you don’t like anything that is left, just buy them a nice piece of crystal (maybe candle holders?). They are classic and timeless.

    maybe get them a gift card for the store where they have their registry?

    If they’re as devout as you say, it sounds like a nice gift. You could also do a very nice bible. My grandparent’s received a beautiful leather bound bible for their wedding and we still have it after they passed.

    why not do both – something off their registry and a nice crucifix. The registry gift won’t set you back too much if it’s just towels or spoons, so you could still shell out the money for the crucifix. You could also put in a note that explains that your parents received one as a gift and they still cherish it, and you hope this is something they will have in their home throughout their marriage. I think it’s a nice idea for a devout couple. If you really don’t like what’s left on the registry, you could get them a gift card from wherever they are registered instead, along with the crucifix, of course.

    I received a nice Crucifix from my uncle who is a Deacon. My Husband and I are devout Catholics and already have religious pictures intertwined with our decor. I think the Cruxifix was a really thoughtful gift. It’s currently hanging in our bedroom.

    @Woodstock:  I was on a Catholic mission team for a year, so I have a LOT of super Catholic couples in my life. I think they all have a million of these sorts of things. Crucifixes, rosaries… this is basically all I got for any occassion for several years. I would maybe go for something more tradtionally “wedding” with a Catholic bend. Like a nice frame with a love-related bible verse engraved on it?

    OH! Or find out if they have a nativity set yet. I would LOOOOVE a Fontanini nativity that I could build on to.

    @MexiPino:  

    The fontanini is a great idea! My aunt has been collecting them over the years and her nativity is really impressive at Christmastime.

    I’d honestly be surprised if they didn’t have a lot of crucifixes already, tho I know you’d like to give them one. I’d probably visit a store that sells religious items and see if you can find something else, like a marriage blessing or something.

    I wouldn’t. What if they don’t have anywhere to hang it where they’d like it? I say stick to the registry. they will love the towels.

    @christinamarie980:  That’s totally my dream 🙂 I don’t know why I feel like I have to wait until I’m married to start collecting them, but I plan to ask my dad for the Holy Family for my wedding and asking him & my sister to just add to it from there on 🙂 I want to have a huge village!
