Dont you love how one minute you think that all your plans are set then your Fiance seems to have a WHOLE ‘nother idea of what should be done?
We were planning on having a registry, but that all changed cuz we decided to have a small party instead. But now, the party seems to be more wedding like then expected. Itll take place in a mosque near my Fiance. I’ll still wear the gorgoues white wedding gown, and my fam will still dress up- the wedding/ party will be well decorated but we wont have dancing ( As stated in previous posts ) but its more of a get together to have dinner and celebrate kind of party thing. He doesnt think we should have a registry cuz its not a ” Real wedding” like his family and friends are used to. He says ” Thats not how its done here “- But I still dont understand, When is it appropiate to have a registry? Do we need to have a super awesome wedding receptiation at a hall so we can set up our registry? Or it just doesnt matter?
What are the ettiquites? ( Sp?)

@Mrsgurzakovic: I think that you can still have a registry. It’s still up to the guest whether or not they use your registry.

We had a registry for some things with our small wedding. We didn’t register for a ton of things though.

I don’t see why you can’t have a registry.

@Zusie: ,@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Ofcourse its still up to the guests if theyd like to purchase something or not, I guess thats with every registry out there as well. Some may choose to purchase from there and some would perfer walking in with something they perfer- I honestly dont care, you know? I just thought it would be fun, intersting and awesome to have one! Even if we get just one gift! Im glad we dont need somthing so extravegant so we can register though, thank you 🙂

My friends hosted a small bbq wedding in a lodge where we worked and I was so mad she didnt have a registry. Some people will still want to get you a useful gift and if there is no registry that can be very hard to figure out. I would have somethign small and conservative and if you see people are using it then add on some more items.

We’re having a relatively small wedding, arund 50 people in total, and we’ve registered for a handful of items. We’re frankly not expecting gifts because basically everyone is travelling to our wedding, but we opted to register for a small number of items just in case.
I just wouldn’t expect to get a ton of presents, if there’s not a ton of guests!

We also having a running registry for all year round gifts (xmas and birthdays etc) at an outdoor shop. Its not typical but it makes life easier for people.

You can still have a registry. I’d just suggest being realistic in terms of expectations, keeping in mind your guest list.

I’m not even having a shower but I still have a registry. Most stores have a policy that whatever someone doesn’t buy you, you can buy yourself at a discount 😉

Some stores also give you discounts on ANYTHING in the store for a couple months after, so it’s definitely worth doing. Plus, you might get freebies if you go to special registry events- I got a small, pretty vase from crate & barrel.
