- Wedding: December 2017
Since I live thousands of miles from the almost everyone that will likely be gifting to me, I will need most shipped if people do physical gifts. To encourage shipping (without saying so), I’ve registered on myregistry and tried to include as many items on Amazon’s Free Super Saver Shipping (they shipped a 28lb of dog food free to me in Hawaii!) list.
So I was having a tough time with registry ideas. The problem is, is that we’re in cramped living space from now until about 10 months after our wedding. After that, we’ll move into the home we want with the space we want and the ROOM to play with all our new home “toys” – necessities in the real world! (yay no condo shoebox with no kitchen counter space and storing kitchen appliances in bedroom closets when unused!) So with that background, I really have a hard time imagining what I will need registry-wise…I’m so far removed from having space to host/entertain or have all the home toys in the world.
I asked my sis to help me out. I gave her the login info to myregistry, and she did basically ALL of it for me. we talked a few times about my wants, i picked a casual china pattern, etc. Then she filled in all the blanks…now I can just go through and delete anything I don’t want on there!
She’s been married for about 7 yrs now, so her registry regrets are still fresh…or things that didn’t last breaking and being replaced. I figure a person in that situation is way more knowledgable on what needs to be on there.
Best decision I’ve made in wedding planning so far! Especially since I’m such a review reader etc when buying anything.. I was looking up reviews on every little product before picking the one to add. I could’ve been there forever.
Hopefully it won’t all be in vain and I’ll get a few nice things and/or the gift cards to purchase them locally if available.
