A few weeks ago, MOH Johnny5 and I went to an ultra-swank registry event at Crate&Barrel. If you’ve ever been to one of these events, they can be a little overwhelming. They basically give you a short introduction, hand you a scanner, and let you run amok around the store. There’s one thing about the scanner they don’t tell you, though. It makes you feel powerful. And giddy.

I was so excited that I forgot to take pictures! MOH J5 did manage to take this one with his cell phone.
Yes, we’re immature. But you had to be there. It was hilarious. (Personal photo)
After we successfully canned our laughter, we focused on the registry and found some pretty cool items.

I was a little disappointed with their selection of dinnerware. ï»¿All of the patterns were simple, classic, and looked the same. I wanted something with colorful designs. We also needed a few other things and decided that, instead of registering at a plethora of different stores, we would just register with Amazon. With Amazon, we could expand our registry to include awesome dinnerware sets like these:

And this awesome vacuum cleaner that I’ve seen everywhere lately:

I think our guests will have plenty of options with both registries.ï»¿ In the past when shopping a registry for a wedding, the two problems I ran into the most were not seeing enough options and seeing gifts way out of my price range. With these registries I think we’ll avoid both of those problems. We’re also adding a honeymoon registry to round things out, but more details on that one later!
What’s on your registry?
