    @IUrebekah3RT: You don’t need additional registries. It sounds like you already have what you want for your home, so why register for a bunch of stuff you don’t need? I think having a honeyfund is a good idea!

    I was the same way.  I refused….flat out refused a bridal shower (because I didn’t need any household stuff and for other reason being that I think showers are kinda, well, lame.)

     

    Anyhoo, back on point:  do NOT register for crap you don’t want.  Your friends and family WANT to get you a gift.  Whether it be some cash for a honeymoon or a household item you really really want.

     

    Don’t register because someone is guilting you into registering.  That’s just silly.

    If you’re going to have a shower you should register for physical gifts IMO.

    Sounds like you should skip the shower.

    We aren’t having a bridal shower for this very reason.  We don’t need anything and don’t want to register for items we don’t need/want.

    @IUrebekah3R:  If you register at bed bath and beyond you may not like the items but you can return them and get cash back. So this way you can have gifts to open at the shower and get money from it.

    At a shower you generally get physical gifts. Unless you are going to tell people not to bring gifts at all you might as well register. I think crate and barell is a good place to register. There’s a lot of variety.

    I wouldn’t register if you don’t need anything. Seems pointless. I also wouldn’t have a shower. Invite everyone just to hang out if you want to. Don’t hold a shower and have people spend money on gifts you don’t need just because you want to have a little party.

    If you aren’t having a registry, you shouldn’t have a bridal shower.  If you opt to register, register for things you’d like or need to upgrade.
