do you stick to the registry?

I've heard different takes on that.

some think it's rude to go off the registry, while others like me just take it as a suggestion.

when we got married, we needed a toaster. DH insisted that we not register for one since someone always gives toasters at weddings. He thought that we'd just end up with even more.

He still gripes that we didn't get a toaster!

  • I always stick to the registry, or get a gift card from that store (or just cash).

  • I always stick to the registry, I feel like ppl took the time to tell you what they needed so you should consider that.

  • I get something off the registry now unless I have heard the couple say they could use such and such which is not on the registry.

  • I try to. It's rude to go totally off of it.
