I remember being very excited to register for our wedding. After the husband and I moved in together we did the whole merging of the worlds exercise. For example, we kept his couches, but I got to keep my bedroom set. Deciding what to keep vs. discard was a fairly easy process for us. However, nothing in our apartment was really “ours”. For example our kitchen dishes were handed down to me from my mother when she redid the kitchen — this was back when I was still in college. They have got to be at least 10 years old. The dishes have really held up well, but we wanted dishes that we had chosen together.
The husband I scheduled an evening to do our first round of registering. Off to Crate and Barrel we went. Despite sitting in traffic for an hour to get the big Tyson’s Corner store instead of going to the smaller store in DC I was in great spirits. We walked up to the counter “hi we need to register”, which was followed by the whole, congrats, when is the wedding and here’s how you work your scanning gun. Okay now where do we start? I had done a little pre-shopping online and we had agreed on some glasses. Scan – enter quantity. Ummm how many do we need? I had no idea and my husband looked at me smiled and shrugged his shoulders. After just sort of staring at each other for 30 seconds he reminds me we can update the quantity online. Okay great we can do that later so there is no need to worry. Now what?
