Hahahaha I am the exact same way! My greedy insides are dying to get out (and to be given a present)(with a bow).

We already had our own house before we got married so I didn’t have any of that greedyness before my wedding.  Honestly, I have barely used my KitchenAid mixer!

lol, i am with mis AsB…we have been in our house for 4 years…we just want to celebrate with our friends and family.  however, since we already have everything we need, and since our house is too damn small to accomodate a bunch of new stuff anyway (not to mention i have a big thing about buying things second hand…it an environment thing, won’t get into it here), we have decided to register for a honeymoon…or register for our photography services for the ceremony.   both of these things represent the best gift we could get…experiences, and memories!  however, no judgement, i get that you are excited about the new home and life you are building together!  you go girl!

You never know on the mixer-I got one from my mom for a birthday years ago (navy blue kitchen aid) and I use it a lot. And sometimes, I use the nice big bowl for popcorn. But they are great!

I use my mixer too!  You know, initially I was anti-registry, anti-gift, thinking that there is nothing we need except each other and the chance to celebrate with our friends and family.  

But damn if I’m not loving every gift we receive as the wedding gets closer and closer.  I have no idea where we are going to put everything, but I love it all!  Yay presents!

Seriously, I am so with you. I would MUCH rather have gifts than cash, too! Because if I get gifts, I love them. If I get cash, I feel as if I should save it for practical uses such as savings, credit card payments, groceries, etc.

And I have a KitchenAid mixer! My fiancee bought it for my 23rd birthday. I use at a lot! It’s super helpfu for bread, baked goods, mashed potatoes, dips and so on!

LOL, I am on the same boat as you Jenny! Although, the majority of our guests are pretty cheap (sorry to sound materialistic)… so I don’t even expect shower gifts… the best I can hope for is that they at least cover their plates at the wedding, hehe.

I don’t think you’re greedy at all – I think we ALL secretly want pretty gifts with a nice red bow (and of course, all of the absolutely delightful thank you’s we have to write for them!)  🙂 It’s one of the biggest day of our lives where we get to celebrate US (FIs and ourselves) and the beginning of our new lives together. Not wrong at all as long as you don’t go around screaming it from the rooftops that you want your KitchenAid Mixer…. YESTERDAY! (lol which I know you wouldn’t).

You aren’t a bad person. For me, at least, I see all these gifts as building a home with my Fiance (we won’t be living together till after we’re married) and that makes me so excited!
