Let's see, for 10/9/9 we are going to the Bridge Festival! It's my absolute FAVORITE part of fall ever (except for my birthday). Then, we are house sitting at FMIL's house. I think my parents might come out and check out the area. Nothing elaborate, but at least we'll get to spend the day together. It's our fall break from college and I'm soooooo glad. I definitely need it!

Have any of you decided where you want to register? My mom asked about this the other day. Eric and I have only briefly discussed it here and there. Are you doing more than one registry?

I think we're registering at a couple places, Macy's and Bed Bath and Beyond. Despite having lived together for a couple years, there's still plenty of stuff we need! (including new cookware ) He wants to register for a flat screen tv which I said was ok, but I wouldn't hold my breath for someone to buy it! I'm thinking about registering sometime before christmas, just not sure when yet.

My birthday is the 15th. I'm excited for this year since I turn 21...but I have to go get a new license and I HATE going to the BMV. Yay for October birthdays!

I've only thought a little bit about registering, with FH's brother's fiance. She is thinking about doing a Pampered Chef registry. Since we will probably be inviting a lot of friends who are all also still in school, we'll probably register at Wal-Mart and then somewhere else to give people some options. If FH had his way, we'd register at Barnes and Noble! You can never have too many books! :)

I'm registering at Target because they have everything, plus the prices are decent and I know that the way the economy is people wouldn't want to spend a lot of money. I will probably start around January. Any of you ladies having a jack and jill party? My fh's brother did that for his wedding to get money for their honeymoon. But I don't understand the concept of that because the bridal party had to buy the gifts that they were being raffled.

I don't know anything about a jack and jill party. I've never heard of it. Sounds interesting.

I have only heard of a Jack and Jill party mentioned in passing, I think here or on another bridal board. I had just assumed it was another name for a bachelore/bachelorette party.

I think Target is a great place to register, but unfortunately the closest one to me is about an hour away. I know they do an online registry, too, but I would hate to do one where the options were to drive for an hour or shop online. In my area, most people register at Walmart Khols, or Penney's (or some combination of them). I think Macy's and Elder-Beerman both have registries, but I've never seen where anyone has actually registered there. I went to a bridal show recently and there was a woman handing out "registry checklists" and she was encouraging people to register at multiple locations to give people different price ranges to shop in, but I think in my area, most places run the same for everything, except Walmart.

I don't want to register at Target, simply because everybody registers at Target. I think Kohl's has most if not all the same things Target has, and I like Kohl's better anyway. I am one of those people who has the need to be different. lol

we have already registered...and did it a while ago actually. we registered at a bunch of different places. simply to give people options....most of our guests live in a different state than us, and the wedding, so i thought it would be better to give them options. Also, people like to shop at certain stores, and avoid others. I personally despise Walmart and avoid it whenever humanly possible, but i adore Target and would go every day if i could. lol.

We registered at Target, JCPenney, Williams-Sonoma, Crate & Barrel, REI and Amazon.com. It gives people the high end place, the local places, and then a chance to help us buy more outdoor gear, which we could always use and need!

All the registries are linked to our wedding website, so its very simple for people to see all the registries, and keep track of all 6!!


My friend had a Jack & Jill. They basically did that in lieu of a bachelor/bachelorette party. It was basically a big family picnic/shower and they did do raffles. the mothers and friends donated gifts to be raffled off...and they did make some money that way. But, its also expected that there is some kind of light food and drinks at parties, so im not sure how much money they actually "made" on the day. but...its fun!!

You already registere Toast? Wow! That's pretty cool because I thought we had to wait at least 9 months until the wedding. I'm excited now! Maybe I can start to register at Target. I wonder if I can register at the Christmas Tree Shop too hahaha!

yes, we registered about a year ago! I normally would have never even thought to, but my fiances mom had people asking where we had registered long before we even set a date! basically once she started to announce our engagement people wanted to give us gifts. so, we made one.

it came in handy for christmas too. people always ask you what you want, but you never know what to say, so we just said "look at the registry!"

it was also good to have for those who asked about a registry when we had our engagement party over the summer.

i dont think there is any set rule for how long prior to the wedding you have to wait to register...so go for it!

The first thing we did after we got engaged in February was register! FH was especially excited about the scanner gun. =) It was tons of fun because we get to think about the stuff we were going to have for OUR home and the things WE were going to use. We already live together but this is stuff we're recieving as a married couple so the experience was special. We registered at Bed, Bath, & Beyond which I was unsure about because it's pricy but FH's side has money as well as 75% of our guests. (He's side is way bigger)
