If my memory is correct it was a $900 knife set.  First thing to go. Group effort.

Individual item was $275 Kitchenaid 7 quart food processor, though I think that’s because most people gave us cash (though we did not ask for cash, and had a large, wide-price-range registry!) The largest amount (other than parents’ gifts) of cash an individual gave us was $500 from my single, male 28-year-old cousin. He’s such a sweetheart, I vowed to myself that I would save up so I could give him an even bigger gift at his wedding one day 🙂

Maybe the KitchenAid stand mixer, which I think was the most expensive item on our registry – it was a group gift from a family who couldn’t come to the wedding. I don’t use it too often but it’s great for when I’m making pancakes or doing the occasional baking. One year later, I still haven’t gotten around to trying out the pasta attachment….

Kitchen Aid standing mixer. 🙂 I was thrilled to receive it as well – we registered for it thinking we’d just purchase it after the wedding, since we knew unfulfilled registry items would be discounted. Was such a nice surprise!

$700 kives…group effort for my one bridal shower even though we didn’t do a registry per se. Also got a $700 cheque from DH’s aunt and uncle (just from the 2 of them) as a wedding gift.

Dang! Some people got some crazy stuff! Ours was a $250 apartment sized freezer.

Our $300 pots and pans! I hope it wasn’t my sis, though…I didn’t want her spending that kind of money since she’s saving for a wedding too.

I think $400 for pot and pan set.  But we got a few cash gifts of $500 and $1k too.

We registered for and received a Breville IQ pure kettle ($230 Canadian). It was one of our big ticket, “I doubt someone will buy this for us” gifts. I was happily surprised that someone bought it for us!

mrsthurber:  Our few big ticket items were the first to go!!! My auntie bought our $600 total set of white china for 8 people, Father-In-Law purchased us a $450 kitchenaid mixer with all the bells and whistles, and our $350 pots and pans were GONE right away!!

Wasn’t expecting it but it was awsome!!
