Some background: FI and I have lived together for several years. We have most things we need for our household and are saving to buy a house. Because of this, and so as not to be rude by asking for cash or starting some terrible honeyfund, our plan is to create a small registry and when asked tell people that we have said small registry at X and are also saving to buy a house. I have declined the two showers that were offered to me (because we have most of what we need and would really prefer money towards the house) and we are just now working on finishing up our registry with a little over 3 months to go until our wedding. We will be inviting 150 people to the wedding, but about 20 of those we already know will not be able to attend because of travel costs.
Our registry, as it stands now, has just over 50 separate items on it (with some multiples requested of some specific items like towels and dishes - so about 70 individual things total). About 70% of the items are $50 or less. Only 3 items are more than $100 and none are over $200. So, it is possible that we will receive multiple items from the same guest. Does this seem like a good sized registry for what we are trying to do?
