@StefLovesJamie:  If you don’t register people might buy you things you don’t want. I would do a small inexpensive registry and spread the word verbally that your guests’ prescence is enough of a gift. I would never show up to a wedding empty handed though and I assume most of your guests wouldn’t either.

I think you should just do a registry (maybe with lower-price point items) and not assume that just because they’re not well off that they don’t want to gift you anything. We had people who were not well-off/unemployed at our wedding and they still chose $35 – $50 items off our registry. Even when I was a poor struggling student working in retail, I still scraped together enough for a nice gift.

You can still tell people, via word of mouth, that no gifts are necessary, but if they insist on knowing where you registered, then you are registered at x and y.

@asscherlover:  +1. Most people will probably get a gift anyway, so it’s best to make sure it’s actually something you want/will use. Register in a variety of price points to make sure there are options that everyone can afford.

Most people will at least get you something small.  I would do a small registry so that you do not end up with 100 dish towels and 3 cork screws 😉
