so, as I was up one of the *many* times with my daughter last night I was thinking to myself, “self, wouldn’t it be neat/cool/ pretty awesome if etsy had some sort of wedding registry thing?”. So I googled. And LOW AND BEHOLD, there it was with all its glory… How to sign up for a wedding registry. Naturally I am always signed into etsy on the website, and through the app on my phone so when I picked my date that’s all I had to do for “signing up”
Did you know about this? Am I living in the stone ages? Did you sign up? If you just learned about this, would you consider signing up for it?
personally, I think it’s pretty neat. I know you couldn’t get (or shouldn’t) to crazy but it would be neat to have some things personalized. I saw a nice cutting board, and I love aprons so I would consider that. Also some of the recipe boxes are neat!
what do you think, bee’s?

I like the concept and I knew it existed, but IMO Etsy isn’t the most user friendly site and most of my family and friends don’t have experience using it, so I wouldn’t include it because I just feel like it would confuse and/or frustrate people and thus not get used.

I love Etsy! They need a birthday registry. That would be so helpful to DH 🙂

I”m sure you could set up the wedding registry and use it as a birthday registry!

oh yeah, a lot of my family probably wouldn’t really understand it either. It would be something if I intended to do more with it I would only share with like my mom, friends, Mother-In-Law, etc.
spinoff question: did you register anywhere? If so, where?
we are going to tackle that next month!

I love Etsy, thanks for the heads up.
NO JOKE on the b-day registry. I’ve been using the amazon wish list with the button for “wishlisting” stuff from other sites lol

Neat! I agree with GroovyHippieChick, I’d totally do an Etsy birthday registry!
To answer your spinoff question, we ended up registering at Bed Bath & Beyond, Crate & Barrel, and CB2. No complaints!

they have a general “gift registry” you can sign up for. I’ve been reading all about it trying to figure it out. Lol.

I DID know about this! I love Etsy 🙂
For those of you who are wishing for a birthday wishlist, I’ almost positive you can make a general wishlist that could easily be used for birthdays, like on Amazon…. 🙂
