We registered for a set not expecting anyone to plunk down the money but someone did to our surprise and we got a lovely set of pots and pans 🙂  If people want to spend money on you they will.  Register for what you really want.

We registered for individual pieces.  There were a couple things we didn’t need in the set and some extra we wanted that weren’t in the set, but yes, the individual pieces cost more overall.  However, ee ended up with the pieces we wanted and people bought just one or two of the pieces.  I think 4 different people bought stuff from the set, and we ended up with them all.

We registered for individual peices and got everything. I was told to do individual because it increases the chances of getting most of it and, if you decide to take a peice back, you dont have to return the whole set. In my case, I registered for too many peices (why did I think I needed 3 different sized sauce pans?) so I took a couple things back for store credit!

 We registered for individual pieces.  My Fiance is more of the cook than I am, and already has a few pieces (all-clad, and a cast iron skillet) so we didn’t have the need for a full set.  We cook a lot at home and had a good idea of pieces that we didn’t have but know we would use a lot.  So in the end we added a skillet and a sauce pan in a size we wish we had – in all-clad.  My DI’s dutch oven is in bad shape, and something we use a lot, so we registered for a new one (le creuset).  

It was our goal to be really mindful of what we added to the registry, picking things we knew we would use a lot and actually needed, and we are tight on space.  And we went higher end on the cookware because we wanted something that would last forever.  It was our intention to purchase these items anyway after the wedding when we move to our new house; really using the registry as a way to make a list of things we need and plan to purchase – if that makes sense.  We didn’t really have the expectations on anything, especially the higher end cookware, as they are pricy.  The other day I went to add something and noticed that all of our most expensive pieces have already been purchased – which was really surprising and exciting!

My point is, it sounds like you guys found a cookware set that really fits your needs. I’ve heard that individual pieces is better in terms of returning, but if you want everything in the set I’d go for it.  And to echo pps, register for what you really want.  This is something you can use, and if it isn’t purchased, you’ll be able to buy it with the completion discount.  If people want to spend the money they will, and often in my circle, people like going in together on larger items.

We registered for a full stainlss steel set. People will go in together on higher ticket items. Especially my fiance’s friends wives. We’ll all pitch in for a big ticket item left on registries (baby or wedding). You’ll be surprised by how generous some people are when it comes to showers!
