Can you find some of the things you want on a site like Amazon?  With the marketplace, there may be a wide selection to fit your non-traditional tastes.  Not sure if you can do something similar with Google Checkout.

Beyond that, is it likely people would just give you cash?  Or are you afraid of receiving like 50 toasters?

$$$. You can call it your Future Home Fund. Then invest it in a high interst savings account or bond.

We have a registry with wishpot.com. You can add things from all over the internet, so you can register for the most cost effective item. We also have a registry at Target for our more traditional and less internet savvy guests. 🙂

I would definitly try wishopot.com and a tradition store like budgetbeautiful said. I just started using wishpot and I love it. I’m axious to see how many people actually purchase off of it (shower’s not til August).

Amazon also has the universal registry option like wishpot.  So you could register at Amazon and add what you want from the cheese company, etc and they have bittman’s book 🙂

I would make a "wishlist", instead of a traditional registry. My fiance and I are considering making one of these, because we kind of want to insert some variety into our registry, without having to register at twenty different stores.

There are some online registry sites that let you add stuff from several different stores if you’d rather, as well, like My Registry (http://www.myregistry.com/default.aspx) and Alternative Registry (http://www.alternativegiftregistry.org/).

HL,

I know EXACTLY what you mean.  My Fiance and I walked into Macy’s and walked right back out.   We have everything we need and so we felt bad registering for new stuff.  The only thing we did different is register at Bed Bath & Beyond as sort of a home redecoration fund.  We are first time home buyers currently in the lending process and found a ton of things for our new home that came from BB&B.

 Have you thought about donations to a charity instead of an actual wedding registry? 

Good luck.  I’m sure everything will work out just fine.

Could you do a charity registry? Or keep your small registry, and spread the word through family/friends/bridal party that you don’t expect pressies but cash would be appreciated to go towards your house/dining table/honeymoon fund?
