What are the odds that he’ll be checking the registry?

I’d say register for more if you love them – just make a point of communicating your affection for them to your Father-In-Law the next time you see him.

So, wait – it was just a gift he gave you, not something he bought off your registry, and you really like them? I don’t think there’s a problem with adding the same glasses to your registry to complete a set. He probably was just thinking of you and your Fiance using them and not in the bigger picture, wedding registry, sets of 8/10/12 whatever mindset.

Haha, probably b/c most of the time it is just you and Fiance drinking wine together, and when you have large gatherings it’s okay for them to be mismatched. I get 2 wine glasses as presents all the time! I honestly don’t even think about it b/c they break so frequently that I don’t have time to try to make sure they match.

Well let me say that I’m a two wine glass giver.  In fact gave my SIL two for Christmas.  Why… because they were $25 bucks a piece.  I figure that it is something I can continue to gift her for other events so she has a complete set or she can get the rest herself.

Understand that it is weird to only have two, but I’m sure there is a reason he did that.  If you like them so much then yes, add them to your registry.

I would say, register for more of them, if they are what you love. The reason you got two is because there is one for you and one for your Fiance when you have those romantic dinners for two 🙂

Were they expensive?  If you dont want to offend your future Father-In-Law (not that he would be offended, he may be flattered) you could always buy them with any gift certificates that you received from your wedding.

I know what you mean though with only 2 wine glasses.  They are great for the two of you until you have guests.  I collect pairs of champagne flutes.  When I have a party each couple gets the same flute.  That way they wont get their glasses mixed up with others.

Also, if you register for the Riedel glasses, expect to get them in 2’s as they are SUPER expensive. I bought my friend 4 Riedel champagne glasses from her registry and the total was around $120. For 4 glasses.

All glasses aare not created equal,, I bought FDIL two Waterford champagne flutes that cost about $150 for Christmas. Since she and my son just got engaged, I gave it to her to show my blessing asa wedding related present. I like her a lot- and will be buying other nice things for her out of the registry, but as an older lady, my philosopy is that it is better to have one or two VERY nice things than 20 mediocre things.  Everybody can get a set of stems for $20 at a department store to use for everyday- this is special.

I would suggest calling him and saying how much you loved the glasses and was wondering where he got them so you can add more to the registry. Then even if you already know where he got them you are making sure he understands your motive and you fingers crossed get more!

I’d say register for more if you loved them and make sure and tell you FI’s father that you loved them and wanted more.  As for the giving 2 wine glasses, I do that with a bottle of wine and a note for the couple to enjoy a romantic dinner with it.  Maybe that’s what you future Father-In-Law was thinking…

Think about it this way, if you and you Fiance are hosting a dinner party and you all sit down to dinner at your table, you and your Fiance will noticeably be different not only b/c of your location at the table but also your wine glasses.
