We weren’t originally going to have a registry. But then we got harassed and were asked to set up a registry…. Basically my thought on it is- if people are willing to know what you want, you might as well tell them right? So that would be a pro to have a wish list on your wedding website…

But if you put the wish list on your website- how do other people know not to get that for you anymore if it isn’t like… on a registry where it would normally provide a status like… purchased/obtained or something??? So then wouldn’t that be a negative to posting a wishlist on your wedding website?

Now you are making me want to skim through my registry to see what was or wasn’t purchased!  

But it might just be more polite to let people be aware through word of mouth what you really want. Just keep track on who you told… We had a friend ask us what we really wanted- and I told them it had not been purchased yet but that it was on our registry for them to look into…

I think the wish list is for things unusual that you can’t put on a registry. Personally I’m not a big fan of the wish list. Although, my friend did something cute with hers and said (I paraphrase), "Our wish is to have all our family and friends with us to celebrate our marriage!"

I have a wedding website thru mywedding.com and it had the whole wishpot thing. I didn’t activate it b/c I didn’t like that however I did add the link to my registry for Target and Bed Bath and Beyond. If someone clicks on the link it connects them directly to my registry for that particular store so they don’t have to type any info in to locate it.
