wedding registry disaster

Just last week someone on blog land posted about their wedding registry. 
I couldn't help but remember back to the day almost five years ago when Brand and I registered at Target. 
First of all, Target is one of the best places to register because they seriously have the cutest things!! 
Also, because they have everything.
(Like how cute things are most important to me?!)
Obviously I recommend registering at Target

I will always remember registering for our wedding. 
I remember the way Brand's face lit up while holding the scan gun. 
-- He had to be the one to scan too. Haha!
I think it was almost a game for him. 

I remember picking out things like...
Dishes
Cups
Cookware -measuring cups, pots and pans, 
Utensils
Cooking Utensils
A toaster
Home decor things - pillows drapes. 
Bed Sheets

There were a few random things Brandon put on our registry like a $5000 flat screen tv. 
But, I felt like I couldn't be mad at him because he was having fun. 
(we did delete the flat screen off the registry, don't worry)

There are a few things that I will always be embarrassed about putting on our registry. 
I don't know why we put it on there, I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time. 
What did we know, we were young. 

Can you guess what we put on the registry?
I don't think it's what you are thinking of, but if you are thinking medicine then you are correct. 
For reals, who does that?!
Who puts medicine on their wedding registry?
We did. 

Target told us that we were the only ones that had ever done that... and now I understand why. 
Because it's kind of dumb and tacky. 
I can make fun of myself now because I clearly wasn't thinking. 
We were thinking that medicine was expensive and that it would be great to get it as a gift. 

Thankfully my mom asked me to take the medicine off the registry...
After she went out and bought all the medicine that we registered for. 
Sure, she looked quite suspicious buying $50 worth of medicine and yes, they did scan her drivers licence. 
I remember thinking that the whole thing wasn't a big deal. 

But, now I understand and am so grateful that that my mom was honest with me. 
So, if you are registering for your wedding anytime soon, DON'T register for medicine. 
Learn from our mistake. 
Just don't do it.

  2. That is so funny, but I would totally do that too. It is crazy expensive and you never seem to have it when you really need it.

  3. Haha. That's so funny! My husband had to be the one with the gun too. He kept scanning ridiculous stuff - mainly baby stuff - and then deleted them. Well, they didn't all get deleted so people kept asking us why there were baby things on our registry! Yeah, I was NOT pregnant! Definitely something to look back on and laugh. ;-)

  4. My husband did the scanning too!
    Some of the strangest things I've seen on the registries were baby things (when they weren't expecting), board games, and toothbrushes.

  5. Hello! I just came across your blog, and I love it! I noticed that we have a couple of things in common! I used to go to ASU for grad school, and I also love dogs wayyy too much, and my husband and I are literally OBSESSED with The Office (probably because people claim he looks like Jim :)) Anyway, it's been great coming across your blog, and I’ve decided to follow you! If you get a minute, I’d love to know what you think of my latest outfit post! While you’re visiting, follow along so we can keep in touch! :)
