We have the exclusive scoop from three of the top wedding registry retailers, Bloomingdales, Macy's and Bed, Bath and Beyond on the most popular wedding registry items.
This new book by the creator of TheManRegistry.com, Chris Easter, serves as an amazing how-to guide for guys about to tie the knot. Guess what, men? You can be fully involved in the wedding-planning process. In fact, you should be fully involved. And if you're feeling at all unsure about what your role is, you need this book.
Give your friends a gift that doesn't have an obvious monetary value. In other words, resist the urge to write them a check in the amount of $54.25 even if it shows you're down to your last dollar. Instead, seek out registry items that pack a good punch. A miniature crystal vase doesn't carry as much weight as say, an oversized overnight bag. Luggage is a great gift for guests on a budget and if you can find it on sale, even better.
A wedding gift registry firm in the UK has gone out of business. But about 2,000 couples were left in the lurch.

According to a rumor, the pop star is asking for guests that she didn't invite to her wedding to get wedding gifts for her. Maybe it's this kind of nerve that drove Mariah Carey to the top of the charts. And this kind of wanton disregard for social mores that got her together with Nick Cannon. But this may be over the line.
