Wedding Registry: How Many Items to Register for Wedding?

Q: Are there guidelines for how many items to put on your wedding registry? I'm trying to include a variety of things (in a variety of price ranges) so that people will have plenty to choose from. I've been frustrated in the past trying to buy wedding gifts for friends with limited registries, but I don't want people thinking, "Jeez, they sure want a lot of stuff!"

A: The fact that you as a guest have been frustrated by short registry lists is key. Your guests are not going to be concerned with how many items are on your registry. They'll be thinking about what they'd like to get you, and they'll be happy to have many options to choose from. So think of it this way: You're actually doing your guests a favor by creating a larger registry list.
