we had a local registry and we only received one item from it from my SIL.

i think you should do it if you want those items, but try to have at least one registry that’s national or online for your guests. i also think that you should really put the word out about those items through your family and close friends so they can let other guests know. i really think that it’s important to support local business and if you get the word out, then you will be successful. if not, then you’re sure to receive monetary gifts and you can purchase the linens you want with that!

I admire your effort, but it would be a pain.  However, on the upside that might mean more people give you money istead of registry gifts…

too much effort on the part of your guests. i don’t think anyone would actually use it. can you find a local store with an online component?

I agree with the other bees. You should at least have one local store with an online component or one national store. Even if your guests called your local store on the phone, wouldn’t they have to listen to the person read off everything on your registry? If I was in town I would probably check it out, but as an out of town guest I would avoid that one.
