We are registered at BB&B and Bloomingdales – together 148 items for 120 people. Most items are between $20-$80. We haven’t picked out everyday dishes yet (that will add a lot of items!), and we’re thinking of later also doing an amazon registry.

My favorites include….

– Fine china (I just love it!)

– Turkey roaster (I’ve never made a turkey, but I feel like this gadget will help me so much)

– Weird magnets :p

I guess I’m not very particular about most items, although I can vouch that every one of them would be a helpful addition to our future household. Fiance is really excited about kitchen knives.

Oh wow, now I feel like I have nothing!

We have about 60 items between Target and Kohl’s, with about 130 invited. We keep deleting things too… we’ve lived on our own before and keep needing our own things, but since we’re young most of it’s new anyway! I have no idea what else to register for. Our range is about $5 to I think $300.

My favorites:

Stand Mixer

Espresso maker for Fiance

Fun kitchen gadgets that I’m too cheap to buy on my own because I don’t use them enough, lol

My BBB consultant said you should take the number of guests you’ve invited to the wedding and multiply that by two (because who’s going to just buy you one towel?).  I’ve only registered at BBB and hadn’t finished.  Fiance and I had an interesting time while registering.  It went something like this:

FI didn’t understand why you needed more than two towels. 

Fiance:  “it’s not like you use more than two towels at a time now do you?”  and “they have to match?  What?  I thought I could just pick out my favorite color/design and they would all somehow “fit” together!” 

I’m glad it finally got easier once we got the kitchen stuff…there was less color picking in that section.  Except for plates/dish

Fiance: ”why do we need plates we have plenty of plates”

Me: “yes, babe we have plenty of hand me down plates.  This is the time where we can get the once that ‘match’ our décor” 

Fiance:  “What??? There’s that ‘matching’ word again…I don’t get it!”

HAHAHA!

@MsNarwhal: We must have similar taste, I love my kitchen aid so freaking much AND I’ve recently started to gather le creuset kitchenware also in cobalt, I LOVE the colour!

i know registry is a usual thing to do in the US but i still seems bizzare to me, i suppose it’s only telling people what you would like as a gift, over in the uk you usually end up with 10+ photo frames, 6 photo albums and a couple of toasters, some of you mentioned you don’t yet live with your Fiance so i suppose it make a lot of sense. 

i would like to wander round a store with the gun thingy scanning all the things i would love to own that would be cool

@TxsAggieBride: But what do you register for?? Lol. We have about 130 invited and we have 60 items on the registry, not counting the popcorn maker my parents decided to give us now, and the toaster I need to buy now. And I bought a few other things I need, so it will be even less! I don’t know what else to register for. We’ve gone through lists, we’ve registered for newer versions of things we have… but still, not a lot we need.

Honestly, I’m not sure what else to register for.  We aren’t even close either. 

My friend’s Fiance wanted to register for a blue-ray DVD player, and I think she’s letting him do it.  What the heck, right?  Another suggestion is to register for honeymoon activities.  I’ve seen people register for a snorkling excursion, jungle tour, or even room service, etc.  You can even split them up so that for example two people are chipping in to buy the excursion.  Just some ideas to tinker with.

I prepared different categories for my registry…..like…
Kitchen appliances
Dinnerware
Glassware
Table  Linens
Bed and Bath…..

And then selected the gifts for each categories……..
This way its easy for me to put what i need and for guests also to have options to choose from……

My favorite items:

  1. Kitchenaid Stand Mixer
  2. Mikasa China in Antique White (for everyday)
  3. Calphalon Cookware Set
  4. 630 Thread Count Sheets (2 sets)
