If my Fiance and I, both adults, had completed our registry, I would leave it as is.

It is YOUR wedding so you do what YOU want… I have items on my registry that are over $100 and it is because people want variety. I felt bad at first but I decided you know what… if I get those items awesome, if not – no biggie!

I don’t think you should remove it.  It sounds like you guys had fun and you picked things at varying amounts…. and your right they always do have sales these days and if people work the coupons/sales .. you can get great deals.

Don’t listen to her. Leave your registry. Even if something is too expensive for someone, they will still get an idea of what you would like to have and maybe purchase whatever it is for less somewhere else. The other option for them is that they could just get you a gift card from Macy’s or give you cash. You Future Mother-In-Law is being silly; maybe she just hasn’t been to Macy’s in a while and doesn’t know that over the years their prices have come way down on a lot of their items. Maybe take her window shopping there and show her that things aren’t quite as expensive as they could be. You could also take her to another place of her choosing to compare prices; maybe you could have two registries, so you guests have a choice of where to shop.

That’s sounds like a reasonable amount for registry items, I don’t think you should change it.

I agree with the other bees. People are not forced to buy off the registry, they can get whatever they’d like. You made sure to include a variety of prices, and you two had fun doing it! I’d leave it as is, and if she brings it up again, you can thank her for her concerns but remind her that there are many items in a wide range of prices and that a registry is a suggestion and guests are free to purchase gifts elsewhere or at a lower price.

@Ka393:

What you have done for your registry sounds fine.  I wouldn’t change it.

We had a similar issue come up in our family and we also registered at Macy’s.  I agree with you, we also have a large variety of items ranging from $2 to $220 and there is enough difference in prices to fit everyone’s budget.  Also with family coming from all over the country, there is a Macy’s in every state, so it is easy for anyone to get the perfect gift for you guys.  I think you should leave it and say “thank you for the advise, but we decided this is they way we are going to go” and leave it at that, in the end, she wont care.

Keep your registry as is.  She is entitled to her opinion and if she doesn’t want to shop there, than she doesn’t have to.  You are 100% right about the coupons and discounts they have also.

@Ka393:  Leave the registry as it is.  If people don’t feel comfortable purchasing the gifts then I am sure they will find their own way of providing a gift that they feel is more reasonable.  Don’t let your MIL’s doubt change your mind.  Your registry is for you and your honey, not her.  🙂

Keep it.  Like you said, they have other options so if people feel that Macy’s is too expensive and can shop Target or Bed Bath.  Maybe you should tell her you’re thinking of registering at Bloomies too to give her perspective on Macy’s.  Laughing

If $30 is too expensive for someone, they can give you a gift card or go in with another person on a gift.
