10 Ridiculous Things Brides Can't Believe They Registered For

Shrimp Forks

Unless you're the kind of person who hosts weekly formal dinner parties for all your friends, you don't need to register for shrimp forks. Things like shrimp forks, egg cups, silver napkin rings and crystal candlestick holders are fun to think about having, but let's be honest -- how often are you really going to use something that specific?

Before you go crazy with the cool registry gun, take a minute and think about a few things. How many times a week do I have the need for a shrimp fork? Where will I store the shrimp forks when I'm not using them? Will I remember I even have them when that once-in-a-lifetime shrimp fork occasion comes up?

These sort of fancy schmancy items were de rigueur on bridal registries of yesteryear. But times have changed, and today's registries are more practical. Ditch the shrimp forks and get some extra flatware for dinner parties instead.
