FI and I need to begin the process of registering. I think it is unlikely we will receive gifts other than cash (based on our small guest list and friends and family general preference) but we would like to register at one or two places as a courtesy for those who may be more traditional and want to go this route.
I know some stores will allot couples with a percentage off or even complementary gift card in a small denomination after the wedding even if few to no items have been purchased. Any ideas as about good places to register that would be advantageous or give us more bang for our buck if we ended up buying some gifts we registered for? If anyone has any info I would love to hear it. Otherwise, thanks for reading!

I’d go with a store that has an online option, or has plenty of stores around. If ya’ll own, I’ve seen couples register with lowe’s & home depot. I hear with home owners, those registeries are the best, b/c just redecorating can be a tedious and nickel-n-dime project! Strangely enough, I think I’d be more inclined to purchase an item off a home improvement registry, b/c it’s their home, and that home will be where they raise their children, and possibly grand babies 🙂
I’ve heard Macy’s and stores like them, give you an after event discount, which is a small percentage off your remaining registry items, ONLY. IDK about gift cards, etc. I ATTEMPTED to register with Walmart, and OMG, screw it. There are VERY few stores where you can do it in store now, and they’ve got 2 more companies who are using their website. So some items can’t be added, or they’re coming from another company, and I’m rambling but I just don’t trust that. Oh, I’ve also been told Amazon.com does it! IDK what the benes are with them, though. I haven’t done it yet!
I wonder if you could google that? This makes me wanna go goole stuff 🙂 LOL!!!
