OMG, that's a new one! And here I thought it was bad when my friend registered for cologne and camping equipment.

You're not obligated to buy only from the list.

I'm with RCW go off the registry. I would not spend more than 35 if that is what you are comfortable with.

When going off the registry just think of the kitchen things you really like? I've bought stoneware from pampered chef once, pyrex glass mixing bowls w/lids (love them), group of spatulas, can opener, wooden spoon collection, etc.

I had a friend register for $115 sugar bowl and $110 creamer. Wait, make that 2 of each because they registered at 2 places.

After yelling at them (because we have that kinda relationship and they don't even drink coffee or tea), I gave them money.

Scrills, do you have the same friends we do? The groom was actually a colleague of DH, so I couldn't tease them about it. They also had $350 place settings of china. Our (upscale) Macy's didn't even have a sample. They looked it up for me, because I just had to see it. Ugly, IMO, and even if I had the $$ for it I wouldn't have paid for it. I think I found something off the registry for that couple. There just wasn't anything left in our price range. (This, btw, was in 1993.)

i agree with this being ridiculous. i can't see even wanting all that stuff that i'd probably never use!!! i'd be embarrassed to ask for stuff when i've been living in a house for all these years...i mean really did i not have pots and dishes.

the ONLY benefit i can see to doing a registry like that is i hear you get 10-15% off for a year if you go back and buy the items you didn't get. so if you want to start fresh with new things i can understand registering to be able to get your items on sale but NO i would not expect people to get all this big things for me when i get married.
