I am most excited about our bedding and kitchen items. My sorority sisters threw me a personal shower so I have lots of cute honeymoon and after outfits 🙂 I just don’t have much to furnish our new appartment. We can make do with the little that we have but I am really looking forward to having pots and pans and things so we don’t have to worry about that type of items.

I am most excited for a toaster, serving/baking dishes, extra bath towels, and the wide array of vacuums/hardwood floor care that we registered for.

As far as lingerie, I’ve never known anyone to actually register for that stuff but someone always buys it – usually close relatives of the bride.

Oh oh oh AND curtains. God, the ones in our house are SO old an hideous! lol

My shower is just around the corner so I am getting asked this a lot. I have to say I am most hoping to receivto the bath towels and china I registered for. Our towels are all mismatched and raggedy and our plates are from my college apartment that I bought at a garage sale.

I’m not too thrilled at the thought of getting lingerie because A) I’m full figured and very busty (size 14/ 38DDD), so most things people get from Victoria’s Secret aren’t going to fit and B) I’m having a lot of older women at te shower and it’s kevade embarrassing 🙂

That being said, I appreciate any gifts that I am given.

I originally wanted a lingerie shower.  My SIL had one when she married my brother, but she got things that were either a little disturbing or even grandma like (awkward!).  And the more I thought about it, I use kitchen stuff every single day.  I had a generic shower a month ago and received things from our registry (all home stuff).  I’ve been more excited about using my new stand mixer than any lingerie (maybe that’s sad ha).

Stuff off of our registry–we registered for a reason.

I would be horrified if someone gave me lingerie. a) Gross. b) No one knows what size anything I wear (and that’s none of anyone’s business anyway).

I really hope I get my mixmaster in ice blue with the accessories. *dreams*

 

Second to that I would love new bedding, pillows and towels.

I would die if I got lingerie at a shower, unless it was the bachelorette party or a lingerie shower. But no one knows my “taste” in that stuff and I don’t need them too. And I would never, ever want that kind of shower. I think I’m really conservative in this sense!

 

I’m most excited about flatware. We need new stuff. One of my gf’s is throwing me a monogram shower for my new initials/new last name. I can’t wait to see what things people come up with.

I want what we registered for: china, kitchen appliances and new pots and pans. We’re tired of our chipped Ikea plates and hand-me-down pots and pans. My shower is this Saturday and I will be mortified if someone buys me lingerie. Not to mention I wear a pretty unusual bra size (28F) and stuff from VS does not fit me.
