Not offended at all! 🙂 We got *drumroll* a whisk. That’s it. I have just deleted our registry entirely. I can’t believe people were hounding me to register and then didn’t even bother with it. But I am a very weird case, so don’t take me as representative!

we got a majority of our registry items (had about 20 things on a kohls registry)/received about $4k in cash.

We actually ended up with most things off our registry (we registered at Macy’s and Crate and Barrel).  We just ended up completing it last month and all we had left to buy were some china pieces:  1 large platter, 2 dinnerware sets and then 2 sets of flatware.  We left about 4 china soup bowls on because we still haven’t received gifts from a quarter of the guests (although some keep trickling in, including 2 of the soup bowls we left on). 

Cash wise I was surprised we didn’t get more (as in cash instead of registry gifts) but we did get over 4 figures just to give you an estimate.

No offense taken here!  We did get alot of money but between the shower and wedding gifts we probably got about 1/2 of our registry items.  We registered at Bed Bath & Beyond, Crate & Barrel and Macys so we have a ton of options.  Of course by the time it came for us to do our completion, we realized several items on our registry we “wanted” but didnt “need”.  We got a fair amount of gift cards to the stores we registered at, probably about $700 total between the 3 stores.  Cash I think we got around $4-5k which was much more than I expected to get!

i’m not married yet, but i registered at target and bb&b. we had an engagement party and our whole target registry was bought. it’s not even a big wedding, i was very surprised. i went and registered for more stuff because i felt like people would want me to for the shower. i’m hoping i have just enough for the shower and people will give cash for the wedding.

for those of you who had 4 figures in cash, did you have a larger guest list?

This is interesting! Newlyweds, can you post your invite list amount? I’m just curious honestly!

We got about half of our registry items. We got a very small percentage of non registry gifts and the rest cash.

we got almost everything off of our registry at Bed Bath and Beyond, and about $2500 in cash.  Not bad considering we only had 25 guests!

We got about $1500 cash. We had a very small guest list, about 80 guests.
