Welcome to Wedding Wednesdays!
My one day a week to gush (or complain) about all things wedding!
Today we tackle the registry process!
I really thought this would be quite simple. Then I started to research it and was overwhelmed. I have heard two conflicting opinions on this from several different people.
Only register at about two places. Keep it very simple and easy. One high end and one low end.
Register at several places with several different price ranges.
Originally we thought we would be going with Opinion 1. There are two stores that we love and thought that it would be great. Unfortunately, the Crazy Lady brought to my attention that neither of those stores exist in Oklahoma. I tried explaining that they can go to Dallas or shop online but that didn't work. I also assured her that I was, of course, going to register at the one home town place that everyone uses. She still thought that we should add another option. Okay. No problem. We can do that.
So now we are going to be Option 2 people.
Last night, Stud Muffin & I went to a Wedding Party at Crate & Barrel. It was fun!
First they give you champagne! Love it! And the scanning gun! (Stud Muffin was in charge of that.) Then they give you a book of what they think you might need and set you off on your way. It was great.
Because it was a store event the had demonstrators everywhere. As many of you know, I am just now learning to cook so having all the people around to demonstrate the kitchen stuff was fabulous!
When we went to print out our sheet at the end of the day, I entered my name and learned that there is another Whitney Crites getting married in June! So weird.
As we left, Crate & Barrel gave us a goody bag! Heart-shaped champagne flutes. Fun!
It was a good time and now I just need to see if they have posted it online yet for me to survey what Stud Muffin scanned with the gun! There is no telling!
How did you do your registry? Were there things you wished you had put on your list that you didn't? Things you received that you never use? Do tell.
