My Fiance is being a pain right now and I need a question to be answered…. Do people ever create bridal shower registries? He is irked that ONE ITEM (a garden tote with supplies b/c i like to garden and it will go towards our home looking nice on the exterior) is on the gift registry that he doesn’t want. I told him that I put it on there because i like to garden, it shows my persoanlity, and i don’t think that every single gift on the registry must be something we both want. We are 2 individuals. He had the nerve to tell me to put it on a different registry.
I’m not. It will remain.
But what say you bees?

From my experience – registering at more than one place, totally cool. Having a separate registry for a bridal shower is a not something I’ve seen before.
All registries I’ve seen have had things for the couple, things for him, and things for her based on their individual likes

As far as I’m aware, there’s one registry that people use to buy gifts for the wedding and bridal shower, so it’s a combo deal. Having a few things that you want individually instead of as a couple is totally fine!

Both Fiance and I have certain items that reflect our separate interests on a single registry. I expected it to be used for both the shower and wedding.

I think it’s okay to have some items on your registry that you don’t necessarily both agree on. My Fiance registered for something for the car that I don’t want and don’t think we need, but since it’s his wedding, too, it’s staying on there. Similarly, I’ve added cooking stuff that I’m pretty sure he’ll never use, though he’ll benefit from it. Maybe your Fiance will benefit from your gardening, too, if it means he’ll get to enjoy produce you grow, or a prettier yard? As long as both parties feel like they got to contribute to the registry, that’s all that matters.

One registry for the whole wedding and events leading up to the wedding.
Maybe offer to have something on there that reflects him?

Your Fiance is being silly. For our registry there are things my husband picked out just for him, stuff I picked just for me, and stuff we both want. That’s how registries work.
