Kacie209:  There’s no shame in returning/exchanging.  We got some dishes we registered for, but once we got them home, realized we really didn’t need them (or have space for them!).  So, we returned and got store credit, where we plan to put toward some of the bedding we didn’t get.  The dishes were also different than we expected- I did most of my registry online.  

After the shower, I also went ahead and deleted a ton of stuff I now realized we didn’t really need, and even added a couple new items.  It’s your registry, and you want to get stuff you want, so do whatever is best for you.

Kacie209:  We had a registry snafu–we placed a matching set of towels in a specific colour on the registry, but apparently they were discontiniued before my showers so people were buying towels in similar colours without being able to remove the originals from the registry. We ended up with enough towels to start a national hotel chain, so we returned most of them for credit, which we then applied towards one of our big ticket items that didn’t get purchased–a new cookware set. 🙂

Kacie209:  Yes, absolutely, we returned and exchanged!  People truly understand when wants/needs change, it’s not a big deal.  I would just make sure to take note of what specifically each person got you, so that you can reference it for the thank-you notes.
