With 7 months out, and invitations going out April probably, when is the latest I should register?
There are no bridal showers happening.
I wasn't going to do any registry - I feel guilty enough for the money poeple have to drop to get here, but it's suggested that I do at least a small register for those that cannot abide to a no gift rule. Wouldn't they give a monetary donation? Or do you think some just have to bring a physical gift? Even if you have to fly?
It seems awfully presumptuous to register. I mean people preach on here up and down that you cannot assume anyone is getting you anything (and therefore no word of it should be mentioned, of course), but then they make these lists of stuff they want! Seems oxymoronic to me. You're assuming someone wants to get you something with the act of registering! No???
Also, at the reception, putting out a gift table is kind of presumptuous as well, isn't it? My venue coordinator is asking me if I want one or not.
