So my FI and I are doing a destination wedding to Las Vegas and we originally did not intend on registering anywhere. We figure that it would be a huge gift in itself for those of our friends and family that can be there with us, and I feel it would be in poor taste to have one on top of asking people to spend a lot of money just to show up.
However, a month or so ago, I went to a wedding show and there were a few representatives there saying that it would be a good idea to register somewhere, even though the wedding won't be in the country, because people will want to get us gifts. Since then, I have been on the fence about the whole thing. On one hand, what these people said made sense; i.e. to give my family and friends and idea about what we'd like so they're not left in the dark and possibly end up getting something that neither my FI and I need. On the other hand, were they just saying that so I would register with them? And, most importantly, I don't want to look like I'm all 'gimme-gimme-gimme' and greedy. What are people's take on this situation?
