dilemmas and resolutions

As we roll into 2010, I'm realizing that all those months of planning have set me ahead of the game in many respects, but we do still have some things to figure out. My two biggest wedding resolutions/to-dos for 2010 include:

1. seriously finalizing our guest list - I have about a week to finish this before our save the dates go out and there are a lot of emotions surrounding the guest list - who knew?!

2. figuring out what we're doing about our registry - our save the dates have the link to our wedding website (thus registry information) and I have already been fielding questions from inquiring relatives about our registry. Mr. UVA and I have been living together for several years now and our house is pretty well set up. The wishlist we have compiled for our house doesn't play very well with gift registries. Seriously, what do you do in this case? Why doesn't Anthropologie have a gift registry? Can you register for cash dolla dolla bills, a down payment on a house, tuition for a masters program? Can you register for big pieces of furniture or artwork? How do people do this and not end up with things you don't need or want? Registries are tough man!

Can't wait for another year with the future hubby though - he's pretty wonderful!

Happy New Year everyone!

I had the same issues when we were selecting items for our registry. There is a great site for engaged couples: wishpot.com. You can register for items from any website like Anthropologie and combine them into your perfect wedding registry. I hope this helps!

Seriously, Anthropologie would make so much money if they offered registry services! We are using myregistry.com to register there instead (haha, we found a way to beat the system!). It actually worked out well because now I've found things I like at about 20 different stores but I can still have just one registry.

You can use a site like Amazon or Wishpot to create a registry that includes items from a variety of sites, even ones that don't actually have registries available. You lose out on the "10% off if no one buys you this" deal, but otherwise it's pretty awesome. Especially if you want to register for a lot of random stuff. Good luck!
