First thing i'll do is look for my size before style, and then once I have my size, go for style.
Quick question, what are these bridal registries all about? I see them and have no idea if I should sign up or not. Did you sign up?
I am very excited! I'm starting to get nervous that I won't get everything done, though!
Bridal registries are awesome! They're a lot of fun to do (you go to the store, tell them you want to make a registry, and they give you a price scanner gun to go around and scan things you want!). Also, people love them because then they know what to buy. It's perfect for people like my fiance and I, who have been living on our own for many years and already have a lot of stuff. If you do make some registries, make sure you register for stuff in a wide variety of price ranges. Don't be afraid to register for some expensive stuff because some people will want to go together on gifts. My fiance and I registered at Kohls, Wal-mart, and Target. We have been told that we need to go back and register for some more stuff because almost everything on our lists has been purchased! So exciting!
A word of advice: Start working on the guest list NOW. It has been, by far, the most difficult and stressful part. I just got my invites out the door today, because we were dealing with a lot of issues about who to invite, who not to invite, and how many people will actually show up. We made the mistake of booking the hall before we actually know an exact count of who we would invite (we estimated and were way off!), so now we're faced with the fact that we invited 380 guests and the hall can only hold 250, possibly 300!!
It's weird to be hoping that a lot of people don't show up.
