Ok, so half of me really wanted to just be uber cool and techie and do our entire registry online. Because we're savvy people, and most of our family follows suit. I love the Universal Registry and Wishpot. But I also know the older people in our family might be baffled by the new fangled technology. We hmmmed and hawed over this decision but ended up confronting ourselves more than our less than techie family.
We were feelers... we love to touch towels, to really run our hands against linens, and see colors live and in person. And until the interwebs gets some more senses we decided to register live and in person. So now the question was.... well we have a FULL SET of China, Crystal, and Silverware ... what else do we get?
It is now I should also note that we have 3 full sets of everyday plates/bowls/etc and a full set of regular old silverware (of the non-real silver variety). Yeesh! Now we're stuck between a rock and a hard place right? So we did what any logical couple would do... we consulted the Weddingbee Boards. Don't bee-lieve me?
Yup I went there. And we got some great suggestions. So I printed the list, and we headed out to Williams - Sonomoa and Bed Bath and Beyond (BBB for short). Here are the highlights of our touchy-feely experience.
The most beautiful, delightful feeling towels.... we have ever touched. Ok, so they're $40 a pop, but they're WONDERFUL and plush. We also registered for towels at a less obscene price point of $20. (Towels for our guest bath- mwhahaaha)
We registered for 2 amazing, zen-feeling, lamps for our bedroom.
A plush bathroom mat and a gel mat for the kitchen, because Mr. AZ does a lot of cooking and his feet could use one of these beauties. Okay, so we were doing okay, we had registered for a down comforter but that was the biggest ticket item so far... that is until we wandered into Williams-Sonoma...
We registered for amazing pots- seriously these babies would last us a life time! But they had a sticker price to match. And then we did... we registered for the item on everyone's registry...
Oh yes, the Kitchenaid mixer!
After we left the stores we felt like we had spent an awful lot of money, but in reality we hadn't... but we were feeling guilty that our families might... but then we reviewed our lists and realized how much we LOVED everything on it. How did you handle the registry? Did you do it online or in store? What are your most loved items?
