I’m going to a bridal shower today for a friend of mine from college. I’m happy for her and excited for the day but for someone like me who’s not family and not really a part of the wedding I’m just basically watching someone open gifts for 3 hours. Still I’m going to go and enjoy it as much as I can…even though it’s all the way in Mattapoisett (sp).
Erik isn’t a fan of registries but when I get married I definitely want to go that direction. I think registries are practical and if you are trying to start a life together it’s the only real way to go. I think it’s pretty stupid to not go the registry route because then you end up with a bunch of things you never needed or wanted…this way you say “hey we really need a toaster or we really need towels.” I guess it’s all pretty silly but if people are going to spend their money for me on my wedding I want them to get something I will use.
What are your thoughts on registries?
