Wedding Registry: How Many Wedding Registries Should You Have?

Q: How many stores are appropriate to select for my wedding registry? I only want a few quality items from certain specialty stores. I don't want to seem picky and greedy if I register at more than three different stores.

A: Yes, you can register at more than one store, and no, you won't seem greedy. The tricky part is making sure that your bridal party and parents know exactly where you're registered to get the word out (remember, word of mouth is the only appropriate way to inform guests where you've registered). Also keep in mind that if you spread your registries too thin, you may find yourself with very few items from each store. Otherwise, your idea is very appropriate -- why not register for things you truly want? You're the bride -- take pride in being picky!

Wedding Gifts: Telling Wedding Guests How Wedding Cash Will Be Used?

My fiance and I did not register at any stores because I own my home and it is fully furnished. We are expecting we'll receive some cash gifts at the wedding and plan to use them on several home improvement projects, such as building a bar in our partially finished basement and doing some remodeling in our bathroom. Is it acceptable or appropriate to write about the use of the money in our wedding thank you notes?
