Hi bees! I am full of questions lately. 😉
I originally only wanted to register at one store, Macys. I personally just really like Macys in general and I liked their fulfillment plan or whatever it’s called and I liked the registry rewards you’d get when you’d reached a certain amount of china or whatnot. I’m also a HUGE online shopper and I know firsthand that macys has a great website and good return/exchange policy.
So anyhow, Macys was a go! 🙂 Then my fiance really thought we should register at 2-3 places in addition to macys because you “have to give people options”, so I caved and we decided to do macys and pottery barn.
When we went to register a few weeks ago macy’s took forever because they seriously have everything and we took HOURS to look through and pick out stuff (even though we can with an online printout of must have’s, lol), and by the time we got to pottery barn (which was slim pickings), we didn’t want to even register there. None the less, we did, but when we got home, everything we’d registered for in store at PB, was out of stock online already! So that registry went away because I didn’t want to deal with it.
Then we decided we’d do bed bath and beyond and just register for towels and bedding and knick knacky stuff from there – so we tried, but we had like 1 item we really liked from BB&B (and it was $2, lol), and then a bunch of other “filler” stuff from BB&B that we didn’t really love or need, yet our macys registry keeps growing.
Soooo, I think we’re back to just one. My fiance has given up trying to go anywhere else since we keep loving macys – but I know he feels like maybe we aren’t giving people enough options – his brother and cousin both got married last year and they each had 3 registries.
I tried pretty hard to make our registry have a lot of different price points, so I feel like we’re okay in that area… or if it’s too pricey maybe we’d just get a GC or something, which would be great too. I also like have one registry because I can see ALL of my items in one spot, and it’s easy to keep track of what we have on the registry, what we’ve gotten already, and what I probably need to add to the registry.
Is it bad to only have one registry? I assumed since Macys is such a huge nat’l dept store with a huge online presence it would be okay, but I also don’t want to offend any guests… thoughts? Anyone only have one registry? How’d it work out?
