I don’t think it’s that big of an issue. Honestly, I would tell him that it doesn’t make a huge difference if you have the registry or not because you can still use the money you get for your honeymoon which is the intended purpose of the honeymoon registry. In the future though, maybe try talking to him without mentioning your mother. Like start a conversation asking him what it is that he likes so much about the honeymoon reasoning. I think maybe he just got defensive because he heard “mom doesn’t like this and I think I agree with her.” In his mind that was probably the two of you ganging up against him and since you and your mom have obviously known each other a lot longer and it’s your mother he thought he was never going to win the battle and you’ll always side with her. In the future, I would just try to leave your mom out of it.

I would let this go since it’s over. But, since you decided this together before it doesn’t really seem fair to Fiance to change your mind. If something comes up in the future I’d be careful about saying you agree with you mom over Fiance. Not because you’re ganging up on him, but because you should make your own decisions, in this case as a couple or in other matters on your own.
