So I’m off to go register for my bridal shower(s) this afternoon (whoo scanner!). Fiance and I made a list of household items we’ll need – everything from towels to cooking utensils. But, just curious, what type of things did you put on your registry? I’ve been told to make sure its broad, with bigger more expensive items (for ladies that want to get in on one gift) and also smaller ones. But what’s considered “big” and how broad? Go beyond the regular household items?

kitchenaid mixer is like 300.00 , knife set is 250.00, grill is 200.00, and pots and pan set is 200.00
those are my 4 big ticket items. Everything else ranges from 2.99 – 49.99 probably.

Like you, I registered for all household items. My registry had expensive things like a nice knife set, pots and pans set, to cheaper things like wooden spoons.

Thanks guys! Between two places have 12 pages worth of stuff registered. Did a HUGE selection for all areas of the house. I was commended greatly by the ladies for such a great selection – apparently couples have been coming in and only scan 1 page worth and then want half taken off. …I guess if you have everything already that makes sense.

Depending on what kind of stores you register at, some things to consider besides household itmes: lawn & garden stuff, camping equipment, board games, luggage.

We put a kinect and a blu-ray player on ours…we’re electronics people though 🙂

I just did a quick scan of my BB&B registry and my most expensive item is my KitchenAid at $299. My least expensive is a spoon rest at $6.99, and there’s a lot in between! Our point of view was it doesn’t hurt to have it on the wish list. People can decide to give us whatever they want (if anything), but we shouldn’t hold back on the ideas we give them. You never know! And I’ve heard from my married friends that sometimes you are totally surprised by who decides to splurge on a big gift. 🙂

We registered for everything from a $600 set of pots and pans to $2 dish towels…and both have already been marked as purchased, so I’m really glad we had a wide price range.
We mostly have household items and traditional registry stuff on ours, but we did register for a few pieces of furniture from C&B–just some small stuff like coffee/end tables and bookshelves.

Sweet wedding date
My most expensive was $450 for the kitchenaid mixer and least is $3 for cereal bowls and everything else in between. My only *possible* regret right now is the lack of dinnerware. I put two sets of a 20pc set that after we printed out a copy of the registry says its discontinued… now I think that means that they can possibly get it in from a different store if it’s not in stock later, but should I choose another set and put that on as well??

Definitely make sure you have a good range of gifts! I tried to keep mine at the lower end of the price scale, but I ended up having people tell me to put nicer things on there, or that I shouldve gone with more expensive things. I went up to a $1000 espresso maker, just for fun. I think as long as you have enough things rom different price ranges, no one will be offended.
