Some people will tell you that registering for gifts is one of the best things about a wedding. “It’s like shopping for really nice things, except you don’t have to pay for it!” Those people are liars. I mean, do we really need a $2700 Tiffany vase? Wading through a store’s home décor web site with a fiancé whose idea of style is a Guinness pint class is beyond torture. But the hardest part of the process is finding that site in the first place and once you’ve picked it, then what? We’re so overwhelmed with shopping choices, we don’t even know where to begin. Target or Crate and Barrel? KitchenAid mixer or swanky slotted spoon? Add the small spaces of New York apartments to the mix and you’ve got a minor wedding crisis on your hands.
So Shelterrific readers, where should we register? And what should we ask for? — Ashley P.
