Buy Me Presents!

I was afraid to register. It felt weird—like I was demanding presents from our wedding guests. But when I am a wedding guest I always appreciate a registry, so I finally sucked it up and we created a wedding registry last week. Well, three registries to be exact. And it was kind of fun—except for all the hard sells (“Just scan it, you can return it later!” “Make sure you register for that $10,000 couch, your wedding party might pool together!”).

Mr. Cheetah & I went to a registry event at Crate & Barrel, visited Bed, Bath, & Beyond, and set up an Amazon registry online. Crate & Barrel is a standard registry store in our circles, Bed, Bath & Beyond has a great return policy—and don’t forget those 20% off coupons! At Amazon you can pretty much register for anything you want—which is great since as an artist I’d love some more tools! Mr. Cheetah and I have lived together for a while now so we don’t need a lot of the standard registry items (we already own the coveted KitchenAid Mixer), and we’re also trying to only register for things we really want/need (hence the power tools). To be honest, I also was reluctant to register since I know we’re very open to that one gift you can’t ask for: a $10,000 couch—just kidding, I of course meant moolah. As it turns out both Mr. Cheetah and I are very excited about our registry. I just hope I don’t go all Monica from Friends on the gifts after the wedding:

Did you have a hard time registering?
