@jeremiahswifey0116  I understand what you’re doing, but I would probably not put a link to my registry here. I’m sure you’re not expecting strangers on the bee to buy you gifts, and there’s no reason for anyone here to know your private info. 

I hope you get all you asked for though!

Thanks! No, I def do not expect that at all. I was posting for any suggestion and the thread was to compare the amount of gift compared to number of guests. I was just giving them the option of looking at the registry to compare gifts since I wasn’t sure of the amount but knew 350 people were invited. There is nothing too personal there. Maybe that is just me but living life in the ministry I guess you get used to all your info being out there as its almost like living in a bubble with everyone looking in and/or watching to see what you do.

Super old thread, but I’m bringing it back. I personally feel like we registered for way too many gifts, but several of our family members and friends have told us that we haven’t registered for enough. We registered for about 140 items, about 1/3 of them are in the $25 and under price range (towels, kitchen tools, etc.). We invited 250-260 guests to our wedding (I lost count, to be honest) and about 100 are invited to my bridal shower (I helped make the guest list). My Fiance and I don’t live together yet, so we’re starting from scratch, but we’ve already bought quite a few things for our home, so I think we’re set.

@lexirose05202016  Wow – that’s a big bridal shower! How fun!

 

I registered for about half the guests that I think will show up to the wedding. I’ll check back on the registry after my bridal shower (which is very small – approximately 15 women total) and make sure there’s still plenty of gift options.

I registered for about 75 gifts from 4 different stores, we have 60 guests.  Some guests are unable to attend because I have lots of family overseas, they will still purchase gifts online.  I’m having a shower with about 25-30 people.  

I used to work at a gift registry.  The reason they encourage you to register for more things is because they want you to increase your registry value. This ensures that guests will buy more things from their store and you’ll come back and complete your registry in the future.  Hopefully becoming a life long customer.

I didn’t register at the store I used to work though lol. Too expensive, awful price points for the same things that are cheaper in other stores.
