k8goeslz :  LOL that’s so funny because I see it that way too. You’re not an adult until you have a Kitchenaid stand mixer and a Dyson. I know how ridiculous that sounds but I can’t help it haha

But yes, I LOVE registry creeping. It’s so funny what people will decide they need when pressured by relatives to create a registry.

I never understood why someone would register for a ton of like 80 dollar towels until I got engaged and realized my Room Essentials Target towels are all in shambles lol

kprecis :  That would baffle me purely because I don’t know anyone who’s ironed in about 20 years LOL.

$400 pillows. I was going in on a gift with a friend, and I remember seeing this and thinking, “hm, if we went in on this together, we could buy half a pillow.”

rosey1739 :  Makeup!! The bride registered at Sephora through JC Penney and her excuse was she wanted the guests to buy her products so she can have a “beautiful wedding day”… With the amount of stuff on there, there was no way she was wearing ALL of it at once lol

My cousin is getting married for a second time to an old sweetheart. I am guessing his ex kept most of the registry gifts, and his Fiance has never been married before (I believe), but the amount of sh** they have on their registries is just insane to me.

She’s registered for crystal vases (multiples), something like 5 pieces of luggage around 200-300 average, then another luggage set for maybe 500, tons and tons of bedding, tons and tons of mirrors, and basically seems to want to replace every single item in their home DOWN TO A HAND SOAP PUMP. Majority of items are 100 minimum.

She continues to add to it and I just don’t understand how they think they will get all/majority of this stuff… (I am sure I am partly jealous, because people have been starting to buy them this stuff.)

I’m so glad I’m not the only one! I love browsing through people’s registries and now I know it’s not uncommon. Lol Also, I’m one of those girls that registered for the kitchenaid mixer… We’ve been married a little over a year and i still haven’t tried it out :/ But it sure looks great in my kitchen!!

lol my SIL had a size XL womens bathrobe on her wedding registry, it felt like Too Much Information. My Darling Husband was like, uhhhh what? Dont need to know your robe size lol.

ETA: Oh another good registry story was my friend who had literally 4 pizza stones and multiple pizza cutters on her registry. Girl lay off the pizza you dont need that many pizza stones in a lifetime.

She also had $0.50 corn on the cob holders…on her registry. Like go grab some at the dollar store, why are you wasting a registry option on this!!?

Oh gosh, registry judging was like an event in my old office. That place used to do wedding showers in the office (any excuse for cake, right?) and the invites would go around with links to registries. Some people would put really expensive things on there because the company owner was known to always gift one of the pricier items. So you’d have people adding $2500 leather chairs from Crate & Barrell or a $3000 set of All Clad cookware. It was just crazy. The best was when one woman’s registry link went around the office and she was asking for like a ton of lingerie. That was a pretty cringey moment.

I don’t judge the prices as much as the quantity. I have only been invited to three baby showers yet and each registry had over 160 items in it! Like WTF??? That just seems insane for me for ONE baby! I don’t think I own that much myself. And totally weird stuff like stretch mark cream-really? Is your baby going to use that or you…and no the baby does not benefit from it.  

Another thing that I roll my eyes is when everything is sorta normal priced (10-60$) and then all of a sudden there is one or two items for 3000$. I have seen that in two of three registries and both were for some sort of dresser or bed. Who, other than parents or really close family would buy that for you? It seems almost like: oh look that is how much my dresser will cost, you broke bitches.

Boxerlover24 :  haha that was me 😛 although I didn’t register for the mixer (received one as a birthday gift before I was engaged) and even got the meat grinder attachment…but in my defense I LOVE to cook and bake and live in the kitchen around the holiadys 😀
