I posted this question in with a bunch of questions about my shower so I figured I should make it a solo post. I need to use a site like myregistry.com for my bridal shower…however I have read a lot of cons. Like its not very user friends, not easy for those not tech. savvy, its a pain to add items, etc. I do need to use a site that offers you to put items from all different stores/websites..however do you girls have any suggestions?? I heart wishpot.com is better.
Is it? or Do you have any other ones that you would recommend? Also, gift ideas? Can be lingerie..but cannot be household iteams (if you read my other post u’ll see why…its called showers..games&gift ideas. I don’t feel like re typing it all.
Please let me know of some site suggestions for registering as I am not for the wedding.
Thanks a lot girls. Also.. food suggestions.. its all a surprise but my mom said something like catering from this company that does amazing sandwiches/wraps and sides with wine appetizers and desserts would be plenty…. hmm any other ideas, seems like a light lunch.. so maybe around 2pm wish? No idea!

Hey! You’re shower idea sounds really fun! I really like using MyRegistry.com – I feel it would work perfectly for you. I’m using it for my shower and I really like the freedom of adding from any store. My sister used it for her shower and no one had any complaints or anything – everyone just said how easy it was to shop online! I think you should give it a shot, once you start using it you’ll probably become addicted.

I used Amazon for one of my registry locations. There’s tons and tons of stuff you can add that’s listed on amazon. I think (but I’m not sure) that they also have a universal registry option where you can add items from other sites.
Besides kitchen stuff we also are registering or have considered: a vacuum, a TV, board games, DVd/bluray player, movies, camping or outdoor equipment, BBQ stuff, video games, tools (power drill), pillows & bedding, picture frames, and other household decorations (candle sticks, vases).

@GracieWeds: thank you! i was just going off of reviews. Does it have the option that you can donate to a give thats expensive, like each person donates whatever amount they want, and if they don’t pay the full amount the site mails you a check to use for that item and u make up the difference if you can? Or if the amount is reached, then it closes out? Let me know, wishpot has it… thats why I ask

Those are all great idea, but its household items in general that i cannot get (not just kitchen items) We are moving into my parents house (1 of them) for $ purposes for about 3-4years, and renting out our house now fully furnished down to the forks, and my parents house has EVERYTHING. Crockpot, all types of cleaning things, one of those 1 cup coffee/tea makers, an aeropot plant growing thing (so random lol), and my mom like collects towels, pool towels, and sheets (i was counting and there were 42 sets of towels.. for 3 half baths, and over 50 sets of sheets for 4 beds!! GEEZE if you change your bedding weekly we can have a different set a week of the year. HAHA. And they only lived in the house for a month so 90% of it is barely even used!
The only thing we do not have is storage, so besides the fact that we will have everything we could possibly need, we dont have stoarage to bring anything that we got new. We cannot afford to get a stoarage unit, and the money we save from not getting one we could use for buying new things from the money we save when we find our own place.
THANK YOU THOUGH.

Definitely use Amazon. They have a universal registry so you can include items from ANYWHERE online!

Hey! MyRegistry.com actually does let guests contribute towards the cost of a gift. They basically give the cash amount through the cash gift fund. This way they can contribute as much as they feel comfortable with, and then you can use this money however you like. It’s through paypal so it’s pretty straight forward.
