We registered for a Margarita machine, too.  Don’t worry about it.  The point of a registry is to register for things YOU love and YOU will use with your husband.

Forget her!!! Get what YOU and YOUR FIANCE` WANT! It’s something you like and know you’ll use. It’s none of her business, if she or anyone else doesn’t want to buy it they don’t have to! You’re true to your personality and that’s what you don’t. Don’t let her mean words discourage you. Just brush it off and keep on pressing ๐Ÿ™‚

What a huge beotch!!!!! Good for you for sticking up for yourself! Seriously, I would uninvite her from everything if she can’t even pretend to be supportive. What an evil bad woman. It’s your registry, you know what you want and will use in your kitchen. And as someone who loves to bake, I’m a little jealous I’m not registered for madeleine pans!!! Holy hannah. That post made me really mad for you! I don’t know this woman and I want to drop kick her!

WTF?! That is messed up and if anyone should be embarrassed, it’s HER. Not you.

It’s your registry. You get to register for whatever you want! Power tools? Awesome. A Wii. Sure. It’s your life, your home, your gifts.

If she has a problem with it then OH WELL.

Don’t let her make you feel small. You have done nothing wrong.

Wow, your aunt was totally out of line!  Good for you for sticking up for yourself.  I wouldn’t worry about your registry ‘offending’ people, it’s your registry and you’re allowed to put whatever you like on it.  If people don’t want to get you something off of it, then they can give you a gift card so that when it comes time for registry completion you can use those along with the discount!  Trust me, Fiance and I have some stuff on ours that I don’t expect anyone to get us but that we’ll get for ourselves with giftcards!

When you get your Madeline pan, you should send her a madeline cake every day ๐Ÿ™‚

Man, as if wedding planning isn’t stressful enough to start with, this woman has to jump in and make it worse??

You know what? I don’t care if you registered for a hula skirt and a coconut bra to wear on the wedding night. It’s YOUR registry, and it was RUDE of her to step in and make you feel embarrassed about it. Not ok!

She obviously has self esteem issues, and needs to make others feel bad about themselves so that she can feel superior.

Don’t give her that power over you, know that she’s making a big deal out of (literally) nothing, and just move on.

… and enjoy the margaritas! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My best friend got a margarita machine as a wedding present in April and said that it’s the best present she got. She said she and her husband use it all the time and that it makes PERFECT margaritas. You and your fiance should keep it on there and just enjoy the hell out of it….that will show her.

Your aunt is ridiculous. Registries are just suggestions, so how can they be offensive? I would understand if you didn’t have other, more traditional options at all, but you do! 

I really just wanted to post to say that I wish we’d registered for a Margarita maker, as well!

Your aunt is out of line. You should register for whatever you want, and if people don’t want to buy it they won’t. If it’s any consolation, my Fiance and I registered for something a lot of people probably think is very childish- a PS3! First, it’s kind of a joke between us and our friends, we don’t really expect someone to buy it. Second, it sure doesn’t hurt too add it. If someone (or a group of people) would like to buy it, great! If not, we’ve got a range of other items. If they don’t like anything on the list, they’ll buy something else, give a check, or not provide a gift at all. All of those options are fine with me- I don’t see how it hurts to give options. FWIW, I would totally buy someone a Madeleine pan from their registry!

If it counts at all we registered a Margaritaville Maker and it is one of the first items that someone purchased off our registry :). So margarita away!!! Register for what you want!! If someone thinks it’s something you should’t register for then they don’t need to buy it!!

What a malicious old hag.  Don’t listen to a word she says — ever.  People like her are to be avoided if you want a sane life, lol!

That’s crazy!
We’ve registered for some things that my be a out of people’s ranges, but our thoughts were that people could chip in, OR, we could buy it after the wedding with a discount (because some places give you a percentage off of what you didn’t receive).  Ignore your aunt.  Some people can only feel better about their misersable lives by putting others down.

Hell to the NO! I am eyeing that same Madeleine pan on Williams & Sonoma. Your aunt obviously has some serious issues and is trying to fugg up your bridal bliss. She is hating on you and you don’t have to justify anything on your registry, and if she is truly not happy for you, she should stay her butt home. Her comments & sentiments are not needed, please carry on with your bridal bliss, we WeddingBee’s are standing behind you! Kiss

That is so mean!!  Don’t listen to her.  Someone gave us a hard time about registering for a waffle maker and it was the first thing purchased off our registry.  She sounds like she is jealous, which seems to be a common theme with this kind of mean and spiteful behavior surrounding weddings.  Don’t give her the satisfaction of knowing she upset you.

Ummm.. my Fiance TOTALLY wants the Jimmy Buffet Margarita maker too. We didn’t get it for the shower & he was bummed. I’m sure one of his cousins will buy it & if not, I’m getting it for his 30th B-day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t listen to your Aunt. If “people” were really offended by your registry, you’d hear it from more than one source.

P.S. – I’ll admit I had to Google what a madeline pan is but yeah! Those things are awesome!!
