    I registered for sheets because we needed them but thinking about it now, I wished I’d put some more smaller  kitchen items on the registry. I don’t know if they would’ve been purchased but I see the sheets and I’m like…  that could have been an avocado cuber!

    Depends what you mean by china. Like, everyday dishes, ABSOLUTELY. I use mine constantly. Fine china, eh, not so much. I doubt I’d ever use it, and I prefer function over beauty.

    I wish I would have registered for everyday dishes and some really nice pots and pans. Also, I would have put a Dyson on there bc I’m pretty sure my mom would have bought if for us.

    I would have registered for luggage.  DH an I could have really used it and I’m sure someone would have bought it.

    An immersion blender! We ended up buying one after the wedding, and I now know how often I will make smoothies and pureed soups b/c it is SO EASY! 🙂

    China was one of the things I wanted the most lol. I am weird.

    I just wish we had registered for more!! Our registry was completely bought out after our two showers (and I thought we had a pretty good sized registry…) and now we have to emergency register for more things before the wedding. I got everything I wanted and more (and probably a bunch of stuff we do not need lol)

    ha! I wish I would have not gotten so many sheets. We got enough sheets to last us the rest of our lives! I guess I registered for too many and that was what ppl wanted to  get (good price range) 😀

    Yes please more suggestions!!! We are registering this Saturday and I keep putting it off. After living together for five years it is hard to think up stuff we need.

    I only wish we’d registered for less kitchen stuff. We got mainly things for our kitchen, which is great, but we ended up with a lot of misc. things we didn’t need as much as other things (like bathroom towels and bedding). I think most people tend to buy kitchen things off registries, and I wish we hadn’t put so many kitchen options.
