I was totally excited for the gifts. Obviously thats not why we got married, but it was a nice “bonus” to get so many great gifts from our family and friends! Stuff we wouldnt have been able to get otherwise, like our nice pots and pans, all our dishes and appliances, etc.

Yeah, I would never tell anyone I want gifts. I always say, ‘you don’t have to.’ But yup, deep down inside, I want gifts!
What do you all do when someone insists to give you money. Not Wedding Related. Like when you pay for food, or transportation or anything else. I do tell them ‘no, and not worry about it.’ But if they keep insisting, do I eventually take it. Is that bad?

Who doesn’t like presents? Registering was a ton of fun and getting new stuff is a great bonus indeed. It’s not about the gifts, but I’m still excited about them too.
I also really want my mixer. And my Le Creuset.

yrret, I think it depends. For one thing I think making it into a scene is bad manners so there comes a time when it’s more polite to give in than to keep standing your ground. For another it depends a bit on the other person’s finances and how much we’re talking about – if it’s five bucks – there’s no good reason not to take it if they insist, why make it a big deal? If the other person can afford it – why not respect their wishes? But if the other person is having a hard time I’d really really insist.

I”m excited about gifts but more so about cash since we are desparately trying to save for a down payment. WE wouldn’t go blow it all on dumb stuff like clothes and eating out, we would put it in the bank in our ‘down payment fund’. So I get ya!

This is such a funny awesome post! I’m really excited about presents… especially off our honeymoon registry, but am also REALLY nervous about opening them in front of people. I LOVE giving gifts, and really like getting them, but get more enjoyment out of watching ppl open them. The thought of my hsower, with 60 guests, and everyone sitting there watching me open presents makes my stomach turn. I’m not a big showy person… but want the gifts too lol

I’m with kpugsley and TrebleClef–we legit NEED almost everything going onto our wedding registry! As poor college students for the past five and the next eight years, we have NOTHING a home needs and will not have any money to buy this stuff in the near future! I hope we have some generous guests. 😀
