Then, as your wedding approaches, people start to call or email and ask what you want. When you say "pick something off the registry" they say: "no no no, what do you really want?".
And then at the wedding, you get gift cards, cheques and cash. Since you never went back and deleted all the crap off of registry, you can't remember what you really wanted and you just registered to shut the woman up, because, really, what the heck is a *DIS*DANESCO CHERRY 9" CO OXO? (It's a discontinued cherry red 9" colander). And since your registry exceeded the number of guests you invited, you've gotta make your money stretch to get everything your greedy little eyes wanted. The best way? Watching sales.
Today, I got our place settings below retailer cost. Best. Wedding. Present. Ever. Not only can I eat in style now (ok, we went with a plate white, high quality dish, so it won't look dated, but will last forever), but I also have the joy of getting a great sale.
Does wearing navy and white make anyone else feel like they're a lady who lunches? Even in jeans I can't shake that feeling!
