on the bright side – she wasn’t complaining your registry was too big!  She had no reason to say that, and it was kindof rude in the middle of a party, but you had a good time and that’s all that matters!

People generally don’t say things to be mean, so I’m sure that wasn’t her intention. It may have just been a passing thought and she probably didn’t think it through before it came out of her mouth. Showers = gift giving, so maybe she just said it because she had a hard time knowing what to buy you?

Regardless, the important thing to focus on is not one offhand remark, but rather the fact that all those people came together to shower YOU with gifts and love. It’s human nature to focus more on the bad than the good, but I’m sure the ratio of positive to negative comments made to you today was 100:1, so try to remember that!

Something very similar happened at my shower and my Fiance are in the same boat. We didn’t feel the need to register for things just for the sake of registering for more. Everyone knows we plan to buy a new entertainment system and are saving up for some other things.  I think it’s fine to only register for what you need/want to upgrade! And I agree with hergreenapples – there will always be 1 negative comment out of 100 so focus on the positives! 😀
