Registry: Catch-22


Through this mini-adventure know as planning our wedding, we’ve been known to buck a tradition or two (I think some of the etiquette guide writers must still be rolling in their metaphorical graves over our electronic invitations), but one tradition we’ve been trying to wade through is the handling of the registry. Every guide we’ve come across launches into a convoluted explanation of why the registry is so gosh darned important and why the location of it must never be mentioned by the bride and groom.

In fact, I have a feeling that the degree to which we are bucking the bridal system would make many a bridezilla quote Catch-22:

“You have no respect for excessive authority or obsolete traditions. You’re dangerous and depraved, and you ought to be taken outside and shot!”

We are very thankful that our friends and family have been more supportive.

Well…maybe after this post hits the internet those rolling writers will start turning fast enough where we can hook up something to harness the energy.

If you feel so inclined to give us something as we start our life together, but have been wondering where we are hiding our registry. We are registered at Amazon.com (Search Kathy Carter or Tommy Falgout) and Target (search online or in stores- Katherine Carter or Thomas Falgout in Texas, yes, there is actually another Katherine Carter getting married, but I swear that’s not me!).

We look forward to seeing you at the big day!
