I think you should register with Myregistry.com…ever heard of it?! I’m registered with them and I love it, you can register any item you want. I started using it because I didn’t really need a lot and was too embarrassed to ask people for money, but I found out that it has something called a “cash gift fund” that allows your guests to contribute to the fund as a registry item! You can conviently add volume to your registry…Myregistry.com is really amazing you should definitely check it out!!!

I have attended a significant number of weddings in the 250 to 350 category.  I have never once seen a registry with 400 items.  Pick things you need.  Beyond dishes look at sheets and towels or household items that you know you’ll need, but it’s not an item you own.

  • Wedding: June 2014

I had a similiar problem as Fiance and I both lived on our own for years and we had a lot of nicer home items between the two of us.

One thing that I didn’t think of at first but am glad I saw on a website somewhere was holiday stuff! Think Christmas tree skirt or ornaments, front door decorations, menorah, holiday candles, etc. Our wedding is in June so it’s hard to think about those things in the spring/summer, but they will come in handy!

ETA: Agree with all other posters that said if you don’t need it, don’t register for it.
