    What a cute site!!! Definitely more involved than my brother and sister in law’s, my sister in law had a really stressful job during planning and my brother wasn’t super into the site… Haha

    I recently had a friend tell me that ‘standard etiquette’ dictates that couples that live together should not have a wedding registry. I guess it’s assumed that if you are living together you have the things you need to make it a home. I *guess* I see that point but without a registry would people just gift cash? Just wondering what other people think about that?!?

      That’s a good question. Though, I’ve never heard of that standard etiquette before. I can say that I’ve bought plenty of wedding presents in my lifetime for couples that already live together – lol! I have seen a recent trend where couples register for their honeymoon as a polite way to ask for cash, but not in a direct sorta way.

      I can see that point. I moved in with my boyfriend when I left college. I didn’t have much, and he had a TON of stuff. All of the furnishings, kitchen appliances/gadgets, electronics, etc are his. While I like a lot of what is here and I’m grateful to have a guy who has so many nice things, it definitely feels more like his place than ours. So when we get married I would want a registry so that we both get things to make our home together. A lot of people just give money anyway in lieu of something from the registry.

      For only 2 out of the last 10 weddings I have attended- did the couple not live together before getting married, and they all had registries. If you include my own wedding, make that 11. Even with a registry, people buy you stuff you don’t want or need and you end up with duplicates of things on your registry. While I have mixed feelings on a registry (how awkward was it to act surprised while opening things I asked for at my shower…), it at least gives more distant relatives some guidelines as to the kind of things you want/need and your taste. I have a few friends who had a traditional registry + a honeymoon registry. The honeymoon registry is usually set up so that you are buying the couple some kind of experience on their trip (i.e. snorkeling or a dinner out or a couples massage) which some guests may prefer to just sending cash.

    Is Derek being proactive in the wedding planning? I know men are usually more easy going than women in regard to wedding planning or consider it “her day” but I hope that Derek is really excited over the whole thing!

      He’s excited about some parts. He’s all over the registry stuff and honeymoon planning!!! He’s also very interested in food and what he’ll be wearing. Most other details he doesn’t have an interest. šŸ˜‰

    Looks cute! I have to say I laughed about Derek’s short bio before I even read your comment about trying to get him to write one!

    I wonder why the letter B never shows up when it’s used in titles on your blog? I always have that problem for some reason…weird šŸ˜‰

    Derek sounds about as into the wedding website as my husband was. I had everything ready to go, but wanted groomsmen bios. I finally ended up writing them, my fiance approved, and then about 6 months later, one of his groomsmen pointed out that we had listed the wrong information about how the two guys met. Guess my hubby didn’t pay very close attention before giving the thumbs up! Ooops!

    Still continuing to pretend like the whole “guest list” post debacle didn’t happen? Okay then.

    Your site is fantastic! I like the idea of having a picture of each member of the bridal party–so cute!
    I was the same way about choosing which photos to post of Seth and me. I had a lot of unattractive ones that I decided nobody needs to see ever again!
