Man.. doing a wedding registry is hard work. We managed to brave the mall traffic today to register at what was originally supposed to be “a few places.” After 5 hours, we came close to finishing off our registry at Macy’s. We still have a lot of cleanup to do and adjusting of what was recorded (changing colors, adding missing set pieces, etc.) But, man it’s tiring.
I have to admit, though, that doing your registry at Macy’s is completely worth it. As registrants, we get 10% back on all of our purchases between now and our wedding date. We also get 10% back on anything purchased off our registry (so, go nuts my friends!). There was even deals that said “if you spend $x on y brand, you get a free gift.” Very crazy.
So, it was a blast running around the store — picking out our formal & casual dinner plates, flatware, cooking utensils, etc. Anything you want — scanned. Done and done.
The one thing, though, is that afterwards Miss Possible and I agreed that we felt like we shopped like mad and had nothing to show for it. We were feeling as though we were excited to come home and look at all our goodies.. Well, unfortunately, that will have to wait. July is just around the corner.
