Amy Duggar Criticized for Her 'Controversial' Wedding Registry

The moment you've been waiting for has arrived: Amy Duggar's wedding registry is now available to view. The former 19 Kids and Counting reality star and her fiancé Dillon King are registered at Dillard's and list everything you would expect to see on a registry of wants from future newlyweds.

So why are they being criticized? 


For starters, the 28-year-old niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar didn't make fans too happy after suggesting fans give a gift. Some felt it was a "read between the lines" situation because she put her address on full blast in order to receive cards and other items. If you sent a gift, that's on you.

At least now you know what the couple really wants.

Featured on Amy and Dillon's wedding registry are plenty of Kate Spade products to keep their home stylish, Ralph Lauren linens, and an assortment of practical household items. Under normal circumstances, this might be no big deal, but seeing as we're talking about a Duggar, it's under a microscope.

Some critics believe Amy's registry is extravagant compared to her family members. PEOPLE magazine notes Jessa (Duggar) Seewald registered at Bed, Bath & Beyond and Amazon for her needs, and didn't have anything lavish -- unless you count an iPad Mini. They also mention Jill (Duggar) Dillard wanted guns and Papa Johns pizza on her registry (that combo might work for some people).

Personally, I don't see the big deal with her wedding registry. It's a fun time to walk around a store with one of those scanning guns and think about your home with your beloved. Alright so maybe it's one of the few times you can get a man to get excited about choosing bath linens, but if it works, it works.

When I was engaged, you better believe my now husband and I added items we didn't feel like purchasing on our own. Granted they weren't out-of-this-world expensive, but if you can get a free Keurig and some nice sheets I say go for it.

Everyone is different when it comes to their wedding registry. Just because one person enjoys simple kitchenware and you love electronics doesn't make you a horrible person. Contrary to belief, guests do have the option of deciding what they want to purchase.

Is it wrong for Amy to do the same, or should she not have a wedding registry at all because she's a celebrity?
