I got that too- we registered at Bed Bath and Beyond and Target, but everyone kept asking us “Why haven’t your registered at Macy’s!?!?!” It was so strange.  I wonder if it’s a generational thing, most of my friends just assumed that we would do the two that we did, but the older people couldn’t seem to imagine registering anywhere besides Macy’s…

*Sigh* I hear you.  My Macy’s registry has been super popular, well, so has my Crate & Barrel, but my poor Williams Sonoma registry has gotten no love.  🙁

I need to add another *sigh* but for a different reason. I wish we had Macy’s AND Target in Canada! I’m so jealous!!! I wish I could register for all the lovely Martha Stewart stuff at Macy’s and well, one of everything at Target. *sigh*

Sorry. Jealousy over.

I have a couple that I’m shopping for that are registered at those three stores.  Their Macy’s registry was also almost finished.  I’m going to head to Crate and Barrel this afternoon though and pick up some other stuff. 

Just a note:  The couple I’m talking about registered for FiestaWare at Macy’s.  This made me super excited.  My grandmother had FiestaWare and I loved all the colors.  I’m definitely going to follow suit and register at Macy’s just for FiestaWare.

Just a comment – if you have a wedding website where your registries are listed, make sure they’re all showing up!  I was a bridesmaid for a friend and I couldn’t understand why she’d only registered for like 17 things at one store.  I tried to bring it up to her delicately and ask when she was going to finish registering, and she got confused and said they registered for a ton already and were done.  Turns out they registered at 3 stores, but their knot website was only showing the Macy’s one!  So make sure that your website is showing all of them correctly, because people might only be buying from Macy’s because it’s the only one that they see.

so funny because i have the same experience at crate and barrel. we registered at three places including C&B, Bloomingdales and a boutique called Material Posessions. We have received EVERYTHING off the C&B registry and nothing from the other two!

I wonder if it’s just what’s closest by/where the guests shop/where they have coupons for. My Bed, Bath, and Beyond registry is in high demand, and my Macy’s has barely been touched. I don’t mind where they go though–I’m just overwhelmed by the generosity of my guests so far. I feel very appreciative.

I registered at Target since the economy is bad and my mom said to because she thinks nobody could afford Macy’s. The other day I got a raised brow about registering at Target.

We did Target, Kohls, and Macys.  After our shower this weekend I was surprised at the amount of stuff from Macys.

I think Macy’s is popular because they’re always having sales & coupons. I know in the past I’ve bought off of the macy’s registries because if you buy during a sale, you can get more gift for your money.

Yep – my mom (and her friends) have Macy’s cards so they always get reward coupons. Plus I think older people are more comfortable there and some people like giving “nicer” gifts from there. Seems silly.

The sales are def. a big draw. The other stores don’t really have sales. Crate and Barrel can have good prices on things, but they never advertise thigns being on sale. I think uless you’re familiar w/ C&B it seems expensive. But somethings are surprisingly reasonable. We’ve been repping our C&B registry to people – b/c we want to take advantage of their return policy! haha

@Miss Biner – We registered at Macy’s just for the Fiestaware!! 🙂 Can’t wait!

I registered at those exact same 3 places! No one has bought me anything yet (shower is too far away) but every little old lady in NYC is obsessed with Macy’s.
