I think that Lowe’s and Home Depot might have registries.  You might also want to just ask for cash.  We did that since we were already established and then didn’t have a shower.

We really want to do that, but can’t find a store that has a registry around here.  He is selling his house and we are already combining households.   We have 3 people throwing us a shower and the thought of it stresses me out! 

One way around it is that we may ask for things for our yard (perennials, gardening tools, etc..) at one of them.  It’s still home related, but won’t become clutter.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy:  There is no polite way to ASK for cash.  Though not registering is often a good way, or spreading it to people who ask you or friends and families.

I do think Home Depot does registries, but it isn’t something I would support personally.  I find the idea of buying someone screws and drywall an ungratifying present as a giver.  I like to give people something personal that they can think back and say “Oh this XXXXXXX was given to us  by Andie and J at our wedding in 1987” Drywall doesn’t have the same appeal to me as a giver.

How about asking for gift cards from these stores?

@andielovesj: We didn’t ask for cash specifically.  We just had our parents say that we already had a home set up and were going to be moving after the wedding so cash would be the easiest gift.

IMO….it’s okay to have key people (parents/MOH/BM/relatives) tell guests that the bride and groom would best be gifted wtih money. However, it is not okay for the bride and groom to ask for cash.

I think if you search the boards there are a couple threads on brides who tried to do this. I *think* the result is either HD or Lowes do a registry of some sort but it’s ONLY at A store. So it’s not some mass registry database that is linked into their server.

One option is to perhaps do a online registry which will allow you to add items from all over the internet…..including specific items from Lowes/Home Depot! You can add a drill, miter saw, etc. And even gift card amounts if you want. That way people can still get the benefit of saying I got them item A, B or C and it helps you towards your home.

Win Win!

GL!

P.S. We used MyRegistry.com and we loved it!
