A geeky girl living in the big city, making her way, the only way she knows how... no wait, that's The Dukes of Hazzard. Who am I again? Oh yeah, a pop culture obsessed writer, publishing person, and occasional nerd. And I'm getting married. I talk about that, too.

His & Hers

Doyce and I have been playing around with a wedding website, and will continue to do so until it's poifect! Then we'll share. Anyway, one of the things on it will be a link to our registries, and I just saw this blog, which I thought was too perfect not to repost.
Here's a snippet of a conversation I had with my fiance this morning:

fiance: when should we start our registry? i definitely want a vacuum, knives, mixer, one nice plate set
mr. monkey: i want a giraffe, a swing set, and some gummy worms
fiance: cutting board, apron
mr. monkey: blow darts, giant bouncy balls, disco lamp
fiance: new sheets
mr. monkey: banana hammocks
fiance: comforter, tupperware
mr. monkey: robots, a tank of gasoline, firecrackers

There should really be a his and her registry.

Margie and I were lucky enough to have two households full of Stuff (eventually three), so we were able to ask for frippery like china and crystal and the like. Though we did want a common everyday pattern, too.

Home Depot is another popular place for registries -- not terribly romantic, but nothing like a Skill-saw to make a new household easier to deconstruct ...

I thought you might benefit from this since you are getting married. If I am out of line, please forgive me.

Here is a wedding idea to consider from Bridal by Design: beautiful custom stamps for your announcements and other wedding mailings. Instead of using ordinary stamps from the Post Office on those special mailings, you can use stamps that were not only designed for your purpose but customizable with your words and dates as well with a website special feature. Since its launch, these stamps have been very popular for invitations. Yes, these are official US postage stamps!

Our wedding stamp gallery has been very popular, probably because we have one of the best wedding stamp design collections on the internet.

You can find my growing Zazzle.com gallery of designs at http://www.zazzle.com/bridalbydesign* and at http://tinyurl.com/7w5qy (a direct link) or http://www.zazzle.com/MarkoMarko*. The first URL is condensed to make it easier to work with.

Presently I have more than 170+ different stamp designs and more than half can be easily customized. You are welcome to read my customizing ideas. [ See http://www.zazzle.com/contributors/journal/entries.asp?cid=238414603713093271]

While you are there, take a look at our growing collection of wedding and love gift items! Some have matching stamp designs.

If you have already finished your wedding planning, please pass this great idea along.

All the best.

Thanks for the helpful hints. I've already consider going with personalized stamps -- I've had clients use stamps.com very succesfully, so I'll probably look there first. But thanks!
