Is it rude to ask your best friend to create a cheaper wedding registry?

She is registered at bed bath and beyond. even the utensils are $15 a piece! I have 2 kids and am in the process of trying to buy a house there is no way we can afford that nonsense. i mean seriously $25 for 1 bath towel!!!

  • you dont HAVE to purchase strictly from the registry, its just a guide to help you. Like say she has some kind of decoration from bed Bath and Beyond that you could find cheaper at target, then I would get it from Target..

  • Yes, it is. It's HER WEDDING, not yours. Buy off the registry if you can't afford anything.

  • Very rude.. It's her wedding.. You don't necessarily HAVE to buy off the registry..

  • lol. I wouldn't hurt to remind her that it may be nice to have some stuff on registry at Target or Wal-Mart as well for people who may not be able to hand the prices at Bed Bath and Beyond... Don't have to say it's YOU! Other wise just get her a gift certificate.

  • I think you can "suggest" to her that not everyone can afford those prices and maybe she should register somewhere else (like target) in addition to the other place.

  • For my BFF's wedding shower I bought her beer mugs from Marshall's. Turns out it was the same ones from her registry at BB&B.

  • I would just get her a gift certificate or something.. If you two are really best friends, she will know that you aren't able to just blow money.

  • do not buy that if you can not afford
    get something else, or even off the list

    when i got married, one of the most well off people that came got me a Billy the Talking Fish things!- really, i am serious, i thought this was the taciest things and he was cheap cheap cheap, but i said nothing, after the reception, when youger people were taking party to hotel room, he bought cases of beer and he paid for it all, also he may have paid for last barrel because i never got charged? if he did he never brought it to my attention, so you never know

  • I agree with superr mommy, or just buy 1 towel, I mean there are items on it for under $20 so how many you buy should be left up to the person giving the gift, if she comes from money, that probably means that people with money are coming to the wedding, I think you should tell her what you can afford (but leave the registry up to her).
