I registered at 3 places – with lots of variety in price points. Now my mother-in-law says people are complaining because they dont have enough to choose from. But there are tons of stuff in all price ranges that havent been bought …. i just dont understand what they want from me. If they dont like the stuff i registered for – then dont buy me anything or get me whatever you want.
registering has been by far the most stressful thing about the wedding….

Don’t worry about it. You registered for what you want. End of story. Personally, I don’t want people to deviate from my register. I don’t want to have a bunch of stuff i don’t need or use. Then i have to figure out how to get rid of it. They will figure out what they want to do. YOU don’t worry about it one bit.

Yes don’t worry about it. If there is really nothing on your registery that certain people don’t feel like buying you, that is their own problem and they can organise something else. Definitely not something you need to stress out about.

I don’t know what else they expect from you. Maybe they just don’t like the stuff you registered for so they don’t want to buy it? That isn’t really their call at all – you registered for it, you want it and thats what you should receive. I do remember when I was shopping my stepsister’s registry she had some really weird (in my opinion) stuff on there that I tried to avoid buying. I really don’t even know why I cared since either way I had to give her gifts and it was all stuff she wanted. I think people usually just try to buy something that they personally like even though its for someone else. Maybe thats the issue, but I would just say “tough” and not change/add anything else just because of that

We didn’t have a registry, and my DH”s aunt gave us hell for it. Then she wanted to know what we wanted. We gave her a ton of ideas, all of which she rejected. So we just told her to get us the china plates she originally wanted to get us. She then said becuase we told her we wouldn’t use them she would no longer get them for us. So we just left it alone. She said she wanted to get us something we would remember her by and think of her.
She ended up getting us a gift card so we can buy a couch, lol.
You are fine. If she doesn’t like what you registered for then she doesn’t have to get you anything and she can look foolish.

@adoc86: Thissss. I mean, what do they want? You registered for what YOU want, not what they want. If there’s tons of stuff at different price points, they need to shut up and buy something, or get you a gift card. Lord.

Don’t let it stress you out. 🙂 Stop checking your online registries! That might be what’s driving you nuts.
Sorry they are being weird about your registries. But it’s great that you are laid back about it. Gifts are gifts. Who cares!? haha
