Did you sit down at your computer to set up each registry, or did you head to the store and grab a scanner gun to get this done? Which is more fun, online or IRL?

    We are going to do this 50/50. We are using an online registry company, but sometimes it is better to see the items in person!

    No gift registry as we live overseas. Hoping if people want to bring a gift they will realize we can't take anything back and will give us money or gift cards/just cards. We decided we are just happy to have everyone there!

    We recently did our registry for the Bridal Shower... we went in person to make it at Bed Bath and Beyond. They have a consultant follow you with a gun and punch in the requested items. It was nice to just wander the store and just point.

    I then went online to do any editing... taking off items I decided we didn't need, or adding items we had missed.

    Our wedding registry is our Honeymoon, so we booked that online... haha. We probably won't use a honeyfund type app, and just request cash or cheque. I don't want people paying to give us money.

    We're not at that point yet! I think it would be fun to go in person to do it tho.

    We are not doing a gift registry as we are only asking for cash gifts to help pay for our honeymoon and the wedding!

    We have a registry set up online but not many items on it yet. We don't need a lot so we also have a honeymoon fund set up.

    We are not registered anywhere. We'll be asking for gifts of cash to put towards a down payment.

    Both, some things were easier to do in person.

    No registry for us! We’ve been together 9 years, so we don’t “need” anything. I would like people come join us for a night or two rather then give us gifts or money.

    If we do a registry at all it will be done in store. Why skip out on the fun of getting to use the scanner gun?? It would make me feel so special carrying that around Smiley smile
