Some friends and family have asked if we are having a registry, but I haven't decided yet (however, fear not -- I am definitely not doing any tacky honey-funds or such). I have heard no plans about a bridal shower, and we own most of things we could ask for in running a home. Sure, there are a few odds and ends for which we could register, but overall the bases are pretty well covered, so registering for anything feels a bit shallow to me. A drying mat for dishes, a rug for the living room, matching jars for storing things in the pantry, etc. would be welcomed, but they aren't exactly things we can't get ourselves at the thrift shop or wait until next Christmas for.
What's the best course of action? To register or not?
