I think it looks just fine. Most people who are going to give a gift will spend at least $20, and a lot of people pool money to get a larger gift. If they want to give you anything cheaper there’s always gift cards and cash but I think it’s a good balance 🙂

I am on a low budget and if I was a guest of yours, there are things on your list that suits me fine. I could easily afford a few of the items. Good job.

Totally fine!  There are many things that are affordable.

id say you dont have enough. Bed, Bath and beyond says its the rule of 2. have 2 items for every invited guest. this is so you give you guest a large variety of items and price ranges. your prices are good too. dont let anyone let you think your being greedy. ask for what ever you want just dont expect to get everything, besides its not like your asking for $1500 china. i guarantee your guests asked for exactly what the wanted (regardless of price) at their weddding, or will

I think it looks good!  I agree with PP, add more though.  A registry is basically a “wish list,”  you can’t expect to get everything, but it gives friends and family ideas as to what you would like if they wish to purchase a gift from your registry.  Sometimes, people will use your registry for Christmas ideas too.

@Vegas Pug: bed bath and beyond said they leave the registry up for two years, so for christmas and birthdays when someone says what do you want you can direct them there

You should register somewhere else too with the same amount of expensive and inexpensive items. It will be easier to add more.

I agree, add more stuff! Little things like spatulas and cooking spoons, kitchen towels, and that kind of thing are great for your more broke crowd. Just because while there are affordable options, really a lot of your stuff is kind of pricy. I love that pattern on your dishes though!

Hi! Great list… My opinion, maybe it’s just me. Personally, I tired to focus on the basics – great everyday china that could be dressed up for special occasions (why get a second set of porcelin or stoneware when it’s lower quality than china, and white china can be dressed down or up plus is higher strength for everyday!); high quality (basic) towels, high quality (basic) sheets – plus small appliances we wanted. We’ve lived together for a few years now so we just need to upgrade china, towels, sheets plus flatware. (makes it easier, for sure)

 

My suggetions – You should go for twelve sets of china – and since you are asking for chargers, the same amount. Also go for 12 sets of flatware. 

If you are registering for a separate set of “everyday” dishes, 8 sets might not be enough either. Consider changing the china to everyday china with a fancy charger. Cost effective.

@katie34667: Also, $1500 china isn’t that bad! You can register by piece (so a $30 plate isn’t as bad as a whole set) and people can select a high quality pattern that will actually last a lifetime.
