Registering and Gifts
Future MIL is a registry kind of woman...
Future MIL is a registry kind of woman.
I just KNOW she is going to ask why we don't have a registry specified on our wedding website.
1. I came from a family who isn't really into gift giving (grew up poor, so it's not really how we show love). I'm kind of a laid back bride who would be grateful for gifts but sort of awkward about it.
2. It's an out of state wedding, so I thought that by not including a registry, it would be an etiquette-friendly way of implying that we preferred a cards only (cash or no cash---it doesn't matter) wedding. Shipping would probably cost us a fortune.
Am I doing MIL a disservice by not including a registry? Any brides out there who didn't do a registry?
Any pointers on how to have that conversation when the time comes? She's pretty high strung at times.
Alternatively, if you have any suggestions for language to include in the wedding website as to why we don't have a registry, I'd be appreciative. Although I understand if this is a bad idea... It's such a fine line with registries and etiquette and not being tacky.
