3: crate & barrel, Macy’s, and Amazon.

Amazon allows you to do a universal registry, so we have a few items from BB&B and CB2 on there- there weren’t enough items from those two stores to warrant a full registry. How it works- someone buys the item from BB&B, then they manually update it on your amazon registry. So you might want to look into that (plus FI was very excited to register for electronics- we have 3-D glasses for the TV & a receiver on our amazon registry)

I think it would be fine to add one or two more… I think most people register at 3-5 places.

As a guest, I prefer when there are more than one option for the registry.

That being said, we were going to register for 3, but ended up with 2 because the 2 stores covered everything we wanted to put on the registry.

We only plan on registering at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and Target. But, we haven’t even begun the process, so who knows if we’ll get more.

Three of my friends registered at more than four places. It varied between Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Target, Macy’s, JC Penney, Dillards, etc. As a guest, I suppose I do appreciate the variety, but the latter three had the most expensive (and dare I say frivolous) items and I tended to not even bother really looking at them.

I just discovered that Amazon.com does a wedding registry, which seems pretty cool.

@mandypop:  We “registered” at target, kohl’s, and macy’s, but we also did a universal registry through registry360.com giftregistry360.com. So aside from the main 3, we have items from amazon.com, sears, crate and barrel, home depot, bb&b….

We had orginially registered at only two places, BB&B and Crate and Barrel but there are a few things I really want from William Sonoma that the other two places do not carry.  So I guess we will end up with three.

  We have three registries: Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Target, and Macy’s. We really could have avoided the Macy’s registry, but they have our bedding that we love. BB&B has by far been the most popular place for us. The majority of our items are on that registry, plus most people have shopped there. We’ve had a few problems with Target’s registry.

  FI originally wanted to register at 8 places, to give people variety. I really like the idea of an Amazon registry, but with our guest list, I’m not sure if we have enough tech-savvy people that would actually utilize it.

We’re registered at two places. One of our “friends” is registered at 4 places for a wedding with over 300 invited, 250ish attending. Everyone judged them like crazy about it. 

Solution for you: use the cash you are given to buy the items you want. If you aren’t given enough cash, BB&B allows returns for cash. If you still don’t have enough, then people didn’t spend enough for you to get those items anyway.

3: Williams-Sonoma, Sur la Table, and Macy’s. 90% of the gifts ended up coming form the Macy’s registry.

We registered at BB&B and Crate & Barrel. And as far as what you should do, I would say just go for it. I don’t think anyone will really pay much attention to it.

We registered at BBB, Crate & Barrel, and Amazon.com. I love the idea of the Universal Registry through Amazon, but not many people have purchased us things though there yet. (Over half of our BBB and C&B registries have been purchased, but less than half of the Amazon one.) But if you just have a few things on each, I think it’s no big deal. And like someone else said, you’ll probably get some cash that you can put towards and unpurchased items you reigstered for!
