DH and I are friends with a fabulous couple that we just adore. They became engaged shortly after we did, but never really started planning their wedding in earnest, although they talked about it a lot. They just let us know they eloped. We're so happy for them, and I want to get them a gift. They did so much for us when we got married - bought us a really generous gift off our registry, came to all our pre-wedding events, gave us words of encouragement the whole way, planned a surprise for us at our reception - and we want to do the same for them.
They don't have a registry, and they already have a lovely home together. I am at a loss for what to get them. DH thinks we should wait to get them something until they have their reception (i.e. PPD) later, but I'm skeptical they will ever actually have one. I guess his thinking is that they'd have a registry by then. (I know, I know.)
But f that. I want to get them something now. And I am a loser who can't function without a registry, especially for such an established couple. I also don't want to just get them a bottle of wine, because they spent so much time and money on us when we got married late last year.
Ugh... I"m at such a loss!
