My firiend liked it a lot because they registered for what the NEEDED and the guests bought out the registry. The rest just gave cash. And a few bought them some nice (useful) gifts that they didn’t realize they wanted until they had them.


I’m going for a “smaller” registry as well, I’m registered for 72 items. A lot of the items are smaller items, like I registered for certain types of cheaper single bowls, mugs, plates, etc…as singles.

We have a small registry at BBB. Four gifts have been purchased off of it, and they were all given to me yesterday at my work shower. My wedding is in 9 days and no guests purchased a gift off of it. I think some people will give cash, but I think most people will give no gift at all. I will update after my wedding to let you know how it turned out.

We registered for about 35 things of various prices, and I have gotten a lot of crap from people about how they don’t like the options available bc they are “boring”. It isn’t price either bc there are a lot of gifts under $20. Be prepared to defend your decision to have a small registry bc everyone has an opinion.
