I don’t think that’s too much, especially if you’re going lots of smaller items. It gives guests options, and whatever is left over some registries will give you a percentage off on the remaining items. I have never looked at a registry and thought “wow there’s a lot of stuff they must be greedy.” Just means I have more to pick from.

Chelbell said just what I was going to. I prefer a lot of items because I have more to select from. I actually think that too few options could *perhaps* come off as greedy, as it says (to me anyway) that the couple ONLY wants this, this and that, and if it’s not okay with the buyer, too bad. Because you have to figure that that last guests to hit up your registry are going to have less to pick from as it is.

I’ve only been to one wedding with a registry, but I think you’re more than fine. I appreciated the options, especially having more options than guests in certain cost areas.

It is better to have more items so that people have things to choose from. Some people may even feel inclined to get you more than one item. As a guest I would also appreciate having the options. But if you are looking to reduce then maybe you can find items that’re combos or do gift cards or cash funds instead. 

Good luck. Congrats.

shellshocker22 :  You are fine!  The more options on there, the less greedy you look, if anything!

We did four registries (we know different people in our families are more comfortable shopping at different stores)! The only way you’ll come off greedy is if you only have really expensive options for people to chose from–but it looks like you have a really reasonable range! FH and I also aren’t living together until after the wedding, so, like you, we need a lot of new things–we will probably purchase some of the things left over as well!
