There’s nothing that brings out some strong feelings like the subject of the WEDDING REGISTRY.
In a world where many, if not most, couples getting married, have already moved in together, there’s the question of relevancy~ “why” a registry? What runs through your mind is that your place is small, or you intend to move a number of times in the next few years, or who needs any more things anyway? The whole registry ideas seems so out of date, so traditional, until you really think about what happens once you announce “we’re getting married”.
First, all the older generation (those that have time on their hands to start planning, early) start asking, where are you registered? You could definitely take a pass and say “nowhere” until you start to consider that all those people who are asking are now going to go to stores and buy you a mass of “stuff” that isn’t your style. Prior to now, you’ve perhaps amassed a series of mismatched forks, knives and spoons. Could the registry be an opportunity to upgrade (at someone else’s expense)?
What is your style? Maybe engagement is the time to start thinking about becoming more intentional~ design wise. What is your lifestyle now and in five years? What would you want if you could “have anything”. Are you all casual? A mix of casual with hosting a holiday dinner thrown in? Just friends come over? Do you dream of gathering family and friends at your place every Sunday?
