Are they are fucking terrible idea, or are they a good idea?
I absolutely hate asking people for things with monetary value attached. It just feels so grabby and greedy and awkward. That said, I know that wedding registers are the norm, and it helps people know what to get.
I don't know - did any of you guys do registers? I don't expect people to buy us a gift for the pleasure of seeing us do something we would do anyway, but at the same time, if they WANT to buy us a gift I am not going to say no.
