My Fiance and I have 3 registries with a max total of 11 items entailing all 3 of them. All of these items are reasonably priced, because when we picked them out we were thinking of our guests and how we don't want people having to pay extravagant amounts. We also have asked for funding, if people wish to gift to us, in OUR purchase towards a bedroom set. We did not list the price of the set because we do not want our guests to feel obligated in gifting this bedroom set to us, it is only if they wish to help us when we buy it ourselves. We only want to let people know if they wish to gift anything to us, we don't need very much, but these are the things that we could use in starting a home together.
One of my bridesmaids has recently stated to me that I should add more to the registry since my Fiance's side of the family is quite large, excluding the family friends invited too. I don't particularly want to, but I do see her point if our registry items are bought out and family has nothing left to buy for us. We're really only asking for 11 inexpensive items and I expect some family could possibly give us money (although I do not bank on receiving anything, because that's not what a wedding is about). Anyone else with a small registry run into problems with this or any other problems? I'd like to keep my registry where it is at if it is not going to be a problem.
