How about the kind of things that wont change with your taste or that you can upgrade from what you have now?

-silver wear / flatwear



-tea set



-cool cook’s tools that you’ll be excited to use in the kitchen (like cake decorating things or avocado pitters, etc)

-nicer sheets

-new pillows

-wine of the month club?


I have no idea what you already own, but I hope those ideas help even a little!

@Eliann i was in a position very similiar to yours…except my fiancee disagreed with me and thought his mom was right and we needed to register for things that we might not “need” now but would “want” in the future.

They both said that you’ll always buy your “needs” but you’ll never really get around to buying/being able to afford your “wants.” Weddings are the time where people really get a kick out of buying you what you “want”


With that being said, I ended up caving and registering and now after my bridal showers, I have a lot of gorgeous things that I certainly don’t need and might not have even wanted (china!) but love just the same now that they’ve been gifted to me since they were a)gifted to me by friends/family b)picked out with my fiancee just by ourselves

so if you do decide to register for “things”, make sure it’s stuff you like and want…hope this helps a llittle! good luck!

For a shower I’d say most people will give a tangible gift. Which leaves you with a few options. 1 turn down either you Aunt or friends offer for a shower. 2. Register for more stuff 3. Be gracious about receiving random stuff picked by your guests.

If you really really don’t want the tangible gifts I’d ask to have just one small shower.
