We just sent Save the Dates for our November wedding and haven't set a shower date yet, but FMIL has been pushing me for a registry. I don't think any family members have asked about it yet, she has admitted that she is just eager to start shopping. She even posted a public comment on our wedding website referencing the registry and said "get it going".
My Fiancé and I have lived together for 4 years now, and although we are excited to upgrade a lot of stuff, we aren't really in "need" of much. We haven't started a registry yet because I have read that many products change or get discontinued. We are also in the middle of house hunting, and thought it might be helpful to hold off a bit to see if we close on a house and see what we need.
Seven months out from our wedding with no shower date in sight, I didn't see the need to rush out and register. I highly doubt anyone is chomping at the bit to see what kind of china patterns I pick out, and I kind of assumed most people wouldn't give my registry a second thought until the shower date was announced.
What are your thoughts? Should I bite the bullet and "get it going"? Honestly the more she pushes me the more I want to put it off, so I would be interested in your thoughts.
