Nothing wrong with that at all and is considered the norm. It’s actually a good thing to have a variety of things in a wide range of prices since not everyone can afford expensive items. Just make sure that you are not registered for duplicate items.

I donno what others will think but I wouldn’t look down on 3 registries.  Living in the middle of nowhere it’s kinda helpful when people register at more places.  Then if you do actually want to go shopping and not just order online one of the stores might actually be around.  Like people loveeee crate and barrel and williams and sonoma but I’ve set foot in there like once because they’re just not around here.

I registered at 3 places! We did a high, medium and low price place to give our guests options. We also had 400 people invited to our wedding, so items were flying off the registries. We didn’t feel bad at all!

I don’t think it is all that bad to register at 3 places. As long as you have items priced for all different people I don’t think it is a bad idea. I assume these 3 places are different levels/styles so that there is a valid reason to register at all 3.

I think 2-3 is normal!  We have 2 big registries instead of 3 smaller ones.  As long as there are multiple price points at each place, you’re fine.

I think 2-3 registries is the norm!  I think if you go higher than that, you may start getting some raised eyebrows but I’d never question 3 registries!

We registered at three places as well. We have guests coming from all over the country and it gave a variety of options. As long as you register for gifts at a variety of price points you’ll be fine.

I think three is fine, particularly if it is one each from the low, mid, and high range.

I don’t think 3 is too much. We originally had 3 but once we realized BB&B had everything Macy’s has only cheaper & w/ coupons – we moved everything over & were down to 2.

I’ve seen some people have 4-5. I think as long as the things on the registry are varied in price range – you’re set.

Nope, I don’t think 3 is too much at all. In fact, I think especially if the stores vary in price range then that is actually really good because your guests have more options price wise.

I have three registries for the convenience of my guests who live in several different cities that have different stores in them.  If having three registries is greedy, then I’m greedy!

we did that too- one local kitchen store- one that they have in canada (lots of canadian guests) and pottery barn- the love of my life / downfall.
