I've been living with my fiance' for around 7 years. Mostly, we have everything we need. There are a few things here and there that would be nice to replace. My FI and I are disagreeing on our registry. I want to register for fine china, crystal, the typical wedding basics. Possibly a few additional items. Its a huge ceremony of at least 300-400 people and we're having engagement and wedding showers before. I think it is a nice gesture to give your guests an idea of what you truly need.
He on the other hand is torn. On one hand, he thinks we should register the traditional 1 gift per guest route, or just not register at all.
Where did you have the most success registering for gifts??
