wedding planning 102
alright friends and readers, advice seeking in regards to the wedding registry. this is one of the wedding "to-do's" chris and i have on our agenda for the month of february.
the etiquette books say to register at two to three places. chris thinks that more than one is too much, i think two is just right, and that three is too many. but i keep going back and forth on this. right now we have plans to register at both macys and target. although i kinda like the idea of also doing a registry at a more "specialty" place, like crate and barrel. what are your thoughts?
secondly, what do we register for? now i do have some items in mind, and i'm sure we'll find things to register for and come up with a good list. but we are both in our 30's and have the bulk of what it is that we need. we even have two of a lot of things since he moved in.
plus, i think registering will be hard. we obviously won't be in this house that i bought for forever, and i can't help but think that i'll want to register for items that will be used in the future. but that seems silly, because then those items will just go unused until we do move. and what if when we do move that the items i selected don't fit right with the house? so even though it seems like a good thought in theory in the long run, it couldn't be that great of an idea and end up just being a waste.
so any ideas you have please feel free to share and provide your input!
