Wedding Wednesday: A Charity Registry

Happy hump day.  I'm so glad that tomorrow is my Friday (sorry if I've mentioned that in the last few posts) but I've had a hectic couple of weeks and I'm looking forward to a week & a 1/2 off with Saro.

For today's Wedding Wednesday, I'd like to talk registries.  We've lived together for over 2 years and before I even moved out of my Mom's, I would buy things here and there, that I knew I (we) would need.  Little things here and there and let me tell you, it definitely helped!  While unpacking, it was a relief that we had most of the kitchen supplies we would need right off the bat - plates, cups, utensils (old hand me downs which we've now replaced), etc.

Needless to say, we really don't need a lot for the house.  We can't register for a new kitchen, bathroom and window treatments (lol!) so we decided to create a small registry (C&B and BB&B).  C&B for their fun and "different" looking things and BB&B for some other things, which gives people the option to redeem a coupon if they'd like.  Their prices are pretty similar but it's nice to have the option to save 20%.

So far we've thought of a few things we need/want or can replace, so we decided to do a charity registry as well.  People can choose from 4 different charities and donate however much they'd like.

We thought this was a great idea to give back!

What kind of registry did you have or what store would you like to register at?

  1. I love that idea! A friend of mine did that, too, and I think it's so wonderful! We're registering at Williams-Sonoma, Macy's and Pottery Barn because we do need stuff for the house! We are incorporating a charity into our day, but not in a registry. Good for you! That's so wonderful! Thanks for linking up with us! :)

  2. We registered at BB&B, Crate & Barrel, and Kitchen Etc. (not sure if that still exists), and my HUSBAND registered at Home Depot. Yes, they used to have registries. Good thing we got that Skil saw because we didn't need plates or anything.
