I don't post on here too often but I am hoping to get some true opinions on this, but hope that feedback is given in a kind and informative manner rather than the critical and often rude tone I have seen so many posts fall into on tk. I appologize in advance for formatting, this is a mobile post and things like dollar signs, paragraphs and parenthesis don't show up sometimes.
So my Question: what do you consider too expensive or too much for a registry? I have one registry on Amazon and have a wide range of items from a 1 dollar cookie cutter to 40 dollar sheet set to a 300 dollar cookware set. While I have a wide range of items price wise, I am concerned about having too many pricey ones. I have, as I said the 300 dollar cookware set and a 250 dollar comforter set. I am also planning to register for dinnerware at Macy's, and although I am leaning more towards casual stuff than the fine china, it will still probably be about 300 bucks... My FI and I were lastly talking about adding a grill to our registry since I am a big cook and we love to entertain, especially outdoors. It would be something in the 250 to 350 dollar range, but I am not sure that we should. That would make 4 "big ticket" items on it does that come across as too much? I was skeptical about even doing a registry at first so it is overwhelming to me... I just don't want people to think that because I put it on there that I actually expect to get it, it's more of an it would be beyond awesome of we did thing since its something we would always use... Just as background, our wedding is 150 people and a 'semidestination' for a lot of people, since many college friends and family members will be traveling a state or two to us so many will already be spending money on travel. Any registry advice is greatly appreciated since I really do not know what I'm doing when it comes to this part of planning. Thanks!
Always try to be a little kinder than is necessary.
