What size luggage did you / are you registered for, for you and your fiance? Do you have seperate sets for each of you? This is one of the things that we need the most on our registry, but it’s kind of pricey… (up to $199.00 for the largest bag).
So, I have the following rolling bags on the registry:
Me: 20″ (carry on, right?), 24″, 28″
Him: 22″, 26″, 30″
Especially since most airlines just allow one checked bag, do you think this is too much luggage to register for? Which items would you remove?
Thanks! I am just having a tough time with this part of the registry!

I think that now as airlines start to charge for checked luggage you both should have one large carry on. My Fiance and I both have one that we use all the time, even for long weekend car trips. The larger pieces really aren’t that usefuly unless you really plan long vacations. Plus with the weight restrictions (50lbs i think) a lot of them are big enough to hold a bunch of stuff but you will be charged an arm and a leg to fly it.
Also remember, you have to have a place to store all of that! 6 big square pieces of luggage is a lot of space.
What about a garmet bag? I know my parents use theirs a lot for weddings they travel to out of state. They make rolling ones now I think.

caszos, thanks for the advice! We have garmet bags, but I should look into maybe an upgrade.
I think we will just stick with the carry on and medium size bags, since the large ones felt super heavy and the 50 pd limit is going anywhere…who knows, they might even lower it.

We just registered for one carry-on and one garment bag. We have one other good carry-on and garment bag already and were also guilty about putting such expensive items on our registry.

We prob won’t register for luggage, but I would recommend registering for one carry-on bag each and one garment bag. I can’t remember the last time I checked a bag..

i think it depends how much you travel, if you usually take long vacations, if they’re in the winter (then you’ll need a bigger bag for winter clothes, ski clothes etc.). if you’ll use the big bags, then why not register for them? if not, then i’d just stick with the carry ons.

I would register for the big ones despite the weight restrictions. Sometimes you’ll need them for winder vacations and sometimes you’ll be willing to pay the overweight fee. Don’t worry about storage as the bags can be stores one within the other, (like nesting dolls). I also second large carry on for both you and your Fiance.
