You have got to be kidding?!?! ver. my BFF's wedding registry!
March 18 at 8:53 PM

My BFF (for 15+ yrs) is getting married in December, I'll be celebrating my 10th anniversary in October. We are at different places in life, and I'm really noticing a gap between us lately. Her sister got married 9 years ago and my best friend couldn't believe how much she spent on her wedding, her dress, etc. Well I really think this has a lot to do with my friends fiance, but they are spending the big bucks, her reception venue alone has a $10k minimum. I remember her going on and on about how ridiculous her sisters registry was so I thought my BFF would be the same down to earth girl I've grown up with, but she just sent me a link to her Macy's registry and I am having sticker stock. (I'll preface saying I got married at the court house and didn't get a traditional wedding- I sort of regret it now, but back on topic)...

The registry- the china is all Noritake Platinum wave pattern

Covered veg. bowl- $179.99

Gravy boat- $84.99

Oval Platter $119.99

1 Place setting- $89.99 (Wants 12)

Salt and Pepper shaker- $49.99

anyways it goes on and on, but really $85 for a gravy boat?!?!? The silverware set is $44.99 for 1 setting, good grief!

Guess I am just in shock!

    There's no rule that anyone has to buy off the registry.

    No I just think it's funny that she went on and on about her sister's registry being ridiculous, and her's is even more over the top.

    Wow!  Insane!  I would buy off the registry or get her a gift card from the store.

    I want to not buy from a registry when I see one like that. My niece is getting married this weekend and I was so pleased that her registry was reasonable that I spent a little more then I normally would have.

    Seriously, my registry was tiny, a toaster, a tea pot, a table runner etc. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's craziness!
