We’re getting married in May, but our honeymoon isn’t until October and we’ll be going to France for part of it. I’d like to learn some french before we depart and i’ve heard good things about rosetta stone. Would it be weird to register for Rosetta Stone for our wedding so we can learn french for our honeymoon later on? I feel like this is kind of registering for our honeymoon but i thought i’d check.

Go for it! The things you register for aren’t going to be used in the wedding so I don’t see a difference. If people don’t want to get it, they won’t but maybe you can pick it up for a discount with the registry completion discounts.

I think thats a great idea. More useful than a lot of things people register for.

We totally registered for Rosetta Stone as well!

I’d totally give someone my bootleg copy of rosetta stone with all the languages. Totally free gift, score.

I would! We registered for a lot of ‘strange’ things. Our rule was it has to be something we can use/do together. So video games, dvds, and board games are totally fine. The bike I really need, a new laptop for mine that’s dying were not ok.

So cool! I’d totally buy you that if I were your guest! My husband and I love travel so we’d immediately buy anything travel-related like that!

I’d say go for it, if you want it! But in all honesty, Rosetta Stone isn’t that wonderful for learning customs and conversations. They teach more just plain words. It’s much easier to learn the language in a classroom setting. (And all my french professors over the years do NOT recommend it!)

@crayfish: wanna come? 😉
@M.Ruder: I can definitely understand that, and if I had the time, energy and money to take a class I definitely would, but as it is, I’m hoping rosetta stone will maybe get me passable. Have you heard of livemocha? I was thinking of using that to supplement rosetta stone. you basically go on and upload your “homework” and native speakers critique it and you can do the same for people trying to learn english (or whatever your first language is if it’s something else). Kinda cool right? I’m excited to try it all out.

that is kind of a cool idea- I think these days you can put anything on there you want, if somebody doesn’t want to buy it,they won’t!

Why not? That’s why I’m using a universal registry so that I can add all those fun “nontraditional” items. There are a few out there, but MyRegistry.com is the best I’ve found and it’s been a big hit with my guests so far.
